Calibre does not detect Sony PRS 700 - Windows XP

Hi,

I tried multiple times to get this to work but I have been unable so I ask for help.

I installed the Sony software before Calibre. Installed Calibre. Calibre did not detect it.

I googled, read advice, uninstalled Sony eBook Library; installed the prs 500 drivers. No go.

I went to the USB drivers, could not find Sony's drivers but did find them under USB Mass Storage, uninstalled, installed the PRS 500 drivers. No luck.

Here is the image:


I am using Windows XP, using Calibre 0.6.10.

Thank you in advance,

Abdul
