Once your PRS-505 has been authorized for your Adobe ID (same ID as on the Mac), all you need do is download the ebooks to your Mac using Adobe Digital Editions and then copy them via USB to the PRS-505 just as you would a DRM-free ebook.

From Adobe Forums:
Quote:
First, on the same Windows machine that you upgraded your Sony Reader, install ADE and authorize it to your AdobeID.

Next, plug in your Sony Reader and then in ADE, select the Reader and choose "Authorize Device" from the Library menu (I'm doing this from memory, and I don't have a Sony Reader to test it on right now - so the wording may be off).

At this point you have a Sony Reader which is authorized to your AdobeID. For any eBooks you purchase on the Mac (with ADE 1.5 authorized to the same AdobeID), you will be able to copy the .pdf/.epub files to your Sony Reader, using the Finder, and then be able to view then on your Sony Reader.
If you did not use a Windows PC with the Sony before, then "same Windows machine" probably can be replaced by "any Windows machine".

You need to use a Windows PC one time only. Once your PRS-505 is registered with Adobe on the Windows PC, your Mac can be used from then on. This is a limitation caused by Sony's lack of Mac support. The same mobile ADE on other EInk devices will apparently interface with the Desktop Mac ADE.
