Or send an e-mail to the contact address on the SonyStyle website where they sell the reader.

funny. I searched for a long time and couldn't either. Usually I"m good at finding stuff like that. Glad a Sony user had the same problem.

I was going to suggest this. I expect it would work. But, it probably won't fit into the Sony stylus holder slot thingy (whatever you call it). Which is why I didn't.

Of course it won't fit, but it could hold someone over until Sony realizes that people will lose them and they will need to offer replacements

Agreed. Of course, you could make your own DS Stylus holder on your Sony reader with duct tape.

the NDS Lite Stylus is too fat to fit in the Holder, and the Old DS stylus is crap and the size of a tooth pick, so lets not eve talk about that.

Andybaby - does that fit in the Stylus slot? I think my daughter might have run off with the pen. It's not like I ever use it. The slot just looks lonely without it's pen there.

I asked when I bought my reader if they sold replacements (years ago,I made it a habit to buy a pack of replacement styli for my devices) and they said no,well one of them said no,and the other said not yet.So far,I actually haven't really used the built in stylus much-especially not if I'm not home/office ,and also utilize a sort of multi-function stylus device (of which I have several,which so far are easier to replace than the stylus with the 700 )
