Firmware update?

My lovely new black PRS-600 is here!! Yay! The pouch for it sucks and I couldn't get my old 505 cover on it no matter how hard I tried! Boooo! So now I'm going to have to order the new cover, but it's going to have to wait a couple of weeks. In the meantime, I hope using the pouch along with my old eBookwise pouch will give it enough protection in my purse.

I've read so many threads around here that I've gotten confused, so that's why I'm asking this question in its own thread. Is there a firmware update already for it? Because when I connected the 600 to my computer this morning, I didn't get any message telling me to update it. Is there a way to check and see if there's an update, or does it tell you automatically?

I got mine on Tuesday and there was an update installed as soon as I installed the library software.

I was able to get my 505 cover (the standard Sony one) to work on my 600. It required a bit of patience and good bifocals, but I got it to work without much difficulty. The problem is that the 600 is slighlty longer (top to bottom) by maybe 1mm or less, so you have to work at getting to cover to click into place. Mine kept wanting to slip off to one side. Use your fingernail to pull the plastic tab that holds the cover in place outward a bit. If I can do it with only one hand, you can do it. Just be patient with it.

Having said that, the new covers made for the 600 are really nice and look much better than the old 505 cover. They are too pricey, but they do look great.

Good luck!

I know, I mentioned it before -

I am using the M-edge cover for the 505 - it's $14.95 now - and it has the perfect pocket for my ipod classic when I'm traveling.

Just checked mine, and it did in fact have 1.0.01.08040, so it didn't need updating.
