Too many books inside 505?

I like the idea of having more than 3600 books inside my sony prs-505.
The problem starts when after a while reading a book if I try to see another one it shows me the same last page I was reading of the first book...!!! also changing the index of other books showing they only have 1 page!....
Too many books?. The battery is fully charger. I use calibre to load and it's perfect.

Anyone with the same problem?

any solution?...besides loading it only with fewer book?

thanks

The only solution I've found is to load fewer books.

Check out this thread for a sort-of solution.

Sony really should have implemented folder-based file management and not this idiotic database system which tries to rebuild the DB on every disconnect. Please don't anyone tell me that "50-1000 books are enough on your reader", that is your opinion, I do not share it. What is the point of supporting SDHC and 8 GB MS if you can't use it fully? /rant mode off

Anyway, as a workaround I've switched to using a couple of old SD/MS cards I had lying around and loading each with a set of books.

I, too, like a large number of books on my Reader. I've found, though, that using an SD card causes a lot of reboots and other errors (like losing the Collection tags).

I gave up on Collections. I load books onto my Reader from three different computers, one of which doesn't have Calibre installed. (I can sort-of run it portably on my flash drive, but it's troublesome that way.)

I sort the books in folders that I can only see when I'm connected to a computer, and just deal with scrolling through the lists to find the ones I want. Since I have a lot of homemade PDFs, I often put a prefix in the title metadata to group them when I'm sorting by title.

I'm considering switching to the Aztak Pocket reader to get folder support. (Only considering, 'cos that's a lot of money to invest in replacing a device that's working very well for me now. I expected to get 2-3 years out of my Sony Reader; right now I've got less than 1 year with it.)
