Problems with formats in Sony Reader

Hi,
I just got a sony reader last week, the 505 version. I dont know if it makes a difference but I am in the UK. Until last year I lived in the US and I am still a member of the libraray there, so i downloaded some ebooks from their website. The one that are in PDF are fine, however I cant get the epub ones to work. When i download them they all automatically go into adobe digital editions, i cant get them to go into elibrary, dont know if that makes a difference, but when i sync my reader, the titles of the Epub books are there but it wont allow me to read them, theres a circle with a line through it and it says something like not authorised (sorry i cant remember the exact wording as i dont have it with me. Any ideas?

You have to authorise your Sony Reader using the Windows version of ADE. That's a one-time process, after which you'll be able to read your books.

There's been quite a few people who have posted that they can't get both PDF and ePub files to work on their reader at the same time. If they delete the PDF files the ePub files will work and vice versa. Maybe that's what you're running into?
