I'm not really a techie, but I've done a little bit of command line/terminal stuff. I *think* I ran "prs500 df" (without quotes, of course), a bunch of text popped up in the terminal screen too quickly for me to read it, and then the window closed. If you have more detailed instructions as I what I need to do, please let me know. My unit is actually a PRS-505. I don't know if that makes any difference.

It's mysteriously started working today. I don't know what's changed, but I guess I can't complain.

I have the same problem, tried soft reset, erasing card, re-inserting card etc but Calibre wont see it. I have version 21 now - same problem and it works fine with the sony s/w + windows sees it so it's definitely a Calibre issue imho.

You mention the Sony software working OK. You do realise that if you have the Sony software installed under Windows Calibre will probably not be able to see the reader? They apparently have incompatible USB drivers. This is mentioned on the Calibre site under the section on downloading the Windows version of Calibre.

Edit: I think the above may only apply to the PRS-500 and not the PRS-505 or PRS-700.

You cant use them at the same time - you have to reboot I believe. My point is that I used sony connect to synch my library with the storage card and that worked fine. I switched to Calibre because it has more features and allows easy tagging (genre grouping) the only problem is that it doesnt see the card despite reformatting and everything else I can think of. Transfers to the device itself work fine

Got it to work - dont know if this is the same for other folk but the key for me was to close calibre completely plug in the ereader so both reader and card browser windows pop up and only then plug in Calibre - doing it in this order calibre sees the card. If I have calibre running and then connect the reader it doesnt.
