PRS-505 cannot see Ebook send to SD card

I have strange behavior while transfering my ebooks (not protected) to my PRS-505 using Calibre (0.6.6) :
- when I send them to my memory stick card : no problem
- when I send them to my SD card : ebooks files (whatever the format) are copied on card, but my PRS-505 doesn't see them and doesn't reference them in its database (cache.xml). I'm pretty sure that the PRS-505 can see my SD card because he can play the mp3 audio file I have put on it. Why not ebook files ?

I there a problem with Calibre or with the PRS-505 ?

There could be several things happening here. I suspect it is likely due to corruption of your reader's cache database saying where things are, but there could be other issues as well. Take a look in this thread (similar, but not the exact same issue):

Post back if any of this helps.

I've solved my problem.
Problem was due to the capacity of my SD card (16 Go) that was not supported by the reader. I use now a 4 Go card and everything is perfect !
I should have read the wiki before, because this limitation in SD card was clearly noticed.

Glad to hear you figured it out. I would never have thought of that issue.

Hi there,

the last firmware update from Sony added SHDC capacity (and more importantly, EPUB support); I have had no problems using a 16 GB SD card, except I have the perception (which is probably entirely subjective) that my 8 GB Sony MemoryStick is less of a drain on the battery.

You can grab the firmware update here.
