Only one card accessible on PRS-505?

I've just purchased memory cards for my PRS-505, and I'd like to transfer books to them. I have both a Sony memory stick and an SD memory card, but Calibre recognizes only the memory stick. Windows is able to access both. Is there a way to make both cards visible to Calibre?

No - only one card can be seen by Calibre.

When Calibre v0.6 series eventually arrives then both will be seen, but that is some way off.

That was my question too. Additionally, although Calibre can see my 2 gig SD card if I remove the Sony memory stick it can't see my 8 gig SDHC card at all. Will that be fixed in v0.6 do you think?

Can Windows see the 8Gb card? Calibre relies on Windows drivers being able to see and handle the card correctly.

Yes Windows can see it and so can the Sony eBook Library. My PRS-505 can read from it too.

Calibre can see the memory stick but not the SDHC card. If I remove the memory stick and run the command again with just the SDHC card fitted Calibre detects only the internal memory and I get this:

C:\>calibre-debug -g
link hasn't been detected!

Edit:

I've tried running the command again with a 2 gig SD card in place of the SDHC one but get the same result.
