Smile To remove ebook library 3.0 and go back to 2.5

My system kept shutting down 3.0 when I tried to transfer books this is how the sony tech had me reinstall 2.5.

In the control panel unistall the ebook library 3.0

Then go to computer (be sure to be able to view hidden files, to do this click organize in the upper left corner, then folder and search options, then click view, then show hidden files and folders.)

Okay back to the instruction. Go to Computer and click drive C:
Click ProgramData
Delete the files Kinoma and Marlin

Go back to C:
Click Users
Click your Name
Click AppData
Click Local
Delete the files Kinoma and Sony Corporation

Here is the link to reinstall the 2.5 Library:

http://download.sony.com/prs/ebookli...0Installer.exe

I don't know if this has been posted but for those who really can't get ebook library to work I hope this helps.

Thanks! I needed the official link to the older software. The new 3.0 software's sync function is horribly broken.

looks like there are some limitations with using the older software with newer hardware. i noticed that with 2.5, my prs-300 would not get recognized with adobe digital editions for transferring a library book over. only after i reinstalled 3.0 was i able to do the transfer

i'm hoping that upgrade fix comes soon!

I had problems on two different Vista machines (one a Sony) which already had ADE and 2.5 installed. When I upgraded to 3.0 I kept getting a message that my machine was not authorized to see my books with DRM.

For ADE to work with the new models you should only need the replace PIM.dll file with the one from the new EBL.

Thanks. You are a lifesaver. Version 3 wouldn't even run on my Vista 64. Just would open and shut immediately.

Thumbs down No Sony in Add/Remove Programs

I have been trying to uninstall the new version of Sony, but it isn't showing up in the CP in the uninstall section. When I try to download it I get a message telling me that it is already installed. When I go to C: drive I can see it there but am unable to uninstall it from there.

I had the old version installed and then installed the new version, which seemed to be working fine. However I had a system crash and since then Sony has not co-operated at all. Adobe Digital, Overdrive and MS Reader are all fine.

I had been trying to follow autumnsong's advice, but am unable to find the program in the Add/Remove Programs.

I'm sure that I must be doing something really dumb, but haven't had a light bulb go on in my head today!

I will keep searching on MR for more info, but so far haven't found exactly what I can use to help me.

Thanks

Jen

Have just talked to Sony helpline and he remotely connected and found the program (I had been looking under Sony and the application is actually under eBookLibrary by Sony )It was deleted and the new version reinstalled. I found him very helpful and he informed me that we would be notified by e-mail ( if your e-mail address is on their site ) about the new update which is still being worked on!

Thanks

Question

Could this thread be made a sticky in the troubleshooting section, at least for the time being until the eBook Library 3.0 gets sorted out? I'm a tad inept and it took me a while to find where to download the eBook Library 2.5.

Or any other links to relevant posts that shows where to obtain the older version of the eBook Library.

Thanks.

Okay, should you ever have a problem with software version 3.2 I have the fix, I got it here as well, so this may be a re-post, but with added info.

It kind of sucks, and is an awful pain, but here is what you do. First, you need to 100% un-install it, Some files are hidden, go here http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?p=572838, that thread is earlier in this post, but some information is missing.

find those files and where to locate them. Once uninstall is complete, download software version 2.5 which can also be found on that link.

Install version 2.5, and open it up. Nothing will be in your library (this sucks) but you can rebuild it. However the new Readers can't sync on 2.5, so when it asks if you want to upgrade to the newest, go ahead and do it. After the new install is complete, do a format of the onboard memory of the reader to wipe all books because the new 3.2 or greater software will not allow them to be recognized by the library. Re build your library, and sync, and there you go. Took me some time to figure all this out. but it is a life saver.
