How long for first charge?

Hi, just received my PRS505 from SonyStyle UK this morning. I have installed all the software and plugged it in to USB. The Ebook Library is recognising the Reader as it is seeing all the preinstalled excerpts.

The screen of the reader is currently saying 'Do not Disconnect' at the bottom and there is a picture of a USB connector at the top right and in the middle. There is also a 'no entry' circle in the middle, with the 'Starting Up', showing behind.

How long will it be before the screen changes as I have had it plugged in for about 2 hours now. Do I need to leave it for the 4 hours before it will allow me to disconnect? I don't want to mess with it when I have literally got it this morning.

let it take a full charge about 4 hours till the red light light goes out.If you have the library showing on your computer screen you will notice where it shows your reader a little square with a triangle.when your fully charged you click that and it will disconnect your usb then your all set to go. Use that to always disconnect your usb cable. Well that is after you finish loading way to many book

Unless I'm mistaken, the screen will NOT change. The first few times I charged my Sony 505, I remember having the same problem. Eventually I just shut down the Sony software. THAT changed the screen! To know if your reader is fully charged, look at the red light on the top edge. If it's on, it's still charging. If it's off, the reader is charged. These days I charge it using a PSP AC wall charger. It takes much less time than when charging with the USB cable.

Many thanks, I am probably so excited with my new toy I didn't spot something in the manual that says you have to wait for the red light to go out!

I have managed to successfully crop the ebooks (pdfs) that came with my MA course, my MA books are way heavy so I am hoping that it will be easier to read them on the train and during lunchbreak (there is a habit of reading a section, then it says to go to another book and read a file paper, then back to Book 1). You can imagine this means that transporting several books can get really heavy.



Is this PSP charger going to be ok as I can see I need to have one and its much cheaper than buying the one for the reader. I could get 2 one for work and one for home and it would still be cheaper.

Suecsi- I know you will love your new reader,it is so amazing and yah no more back breaking ton of books to lug around. But like mentioned above pick yourself up a PSP adaptor to charge from the wall only 2 hours. usb takes longer and there have been some discussions over that topic *some good some not so * but enjoy.

OK - the red light has gone out now - but the screen is still the same and says 'Do not Connect' at the bottom. Should it change? Can I disconnect and hope for the best? Do I need to do a soft reset?

Suecsi. you need to disconnect your usb cable using the little square and triangle symble on the left side of your sony library screen(computer) then your reader will say usb connected . Just click that triangle thing and disconnect your cable. your reader will auto turn on

Or you can close the Library software. That's how I do it.

If neither of those works, try restarting. Sometimes on the first connect it doesn't work, but does afterwards. The main thing though is not to disconnect when transferring data.

My Sony 505 also says Do Not Disconnect whenever I put books on. That note never goes away. Can't remember if it did that when I first got it but I don't think so. I just give it what I think is enough time to download the books and then disconnect it from the computer and the books are always there. Strange.....

Before disconnecting the usb cable you should properly "eject" the Reader from the computer. If using the Sony software, you will see a small eject icon appear when you mouse over the Reader in the left-hand pane. If using Calibre, the eject icon will appear when you mouse over the Reader along the top. If no software is open you should still have to eject the device from Windows/Mac and the process may vary depending on you OS.

You don't have to use eject, it should go away when you close the library.
