Help needed - New owner!

Hello All, I have just received my Sony PRS 505 and its a super bit of kit!
I have a problem though with transferring books from Adobe Digital Editions onto my reader.

I have transferred a book into ADE - I have put it into the folder called "PRS 505" - How do I transfer it to my reader?

It doesn't seem to want to drag and drop!

I would like to put the book into the sony elibrary and then onto my reader.

Please help me - I am not a techie so if you could make the answers easy to understand - thank you.

I think you have to register your PRS 505 with ADE.
Personally, I don't do this. I use ineptepub (google it) on ePub ebooks I buy, and then transfer them to my prs 505, preferably after a conversion to lrf format which gives better results on my device.

It sounds like you've already put the book on your Sony. If you drag the file from the All Items folder to the Sony PRS505 folder, you've copied the file to the Reader.

You can close ADE and then remove the Reader.

If you want to be safe, you can use the Windows "disconnect" icon in the system tray.


Glad you figured out the transfer!
