Question, is there a Mac section for mobile read anywhere? Now that Sony has the programme available there will be people with issues like mine where I had to change the country setting on the Mac to be able to use it. Just would be easier than wading through the mountains of posts trying to find a mac solving one for now and in the future.

The thing that gets me is that the links to the software were posted on this forum days ago but the email from Sony just arrived today. What gives?

I got the impression from the Sony email and their web page that the eBook Library 3.x would support both VISTA 64 and the PRS-500. I still don't find drivers for my venerable PRS-500 for V-64. I searched the forums and found some discussions, but no joy - can anyone help, or do I need to keep my XP machine for my books?

EBL 3.0 does run on Vista 64. It also supports PRS-500, but only on 32-bit OSes.
