Unhappy Why doesn't eBook library 3.0 work?

In http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=56377 I'm asking the lucky ones, who are able to work eBook library 3.0, some details about OS, applications in the background, ...

In this thread, I'd like to ask the less lucky ones, why eBook library 3.0 isn't working for them (me being one of them).

Copying to internal memory

Very interesting.
Most of you guys seem to have the same problem as me:
Copying to internal memory fails, whereas copying to both memory cards seems to be working for most of us.
Especially bad news for users of Sony 300, which doesn't have any expansion slots at all.

hopefully it's just a bug in sony's crappy software, and will be fixed soon in an updated version.

by the way, you should list windows 7 RTM as an option. i'm using windows 7 with this sony software. others might be too.

Good point. Unfortunately, a poll can't be changed once posted.
My suggestion: If you you can't answer all the questions, still answer the other ones. In this case, leave the OS blank, but still answer to 3rd party applications, reader, ...

In this thread, I'd like to ask the less lucky ones, why eBook library 3.0 isn't working for them (me being one of them).
Extra reasons may include:
  • Using 64 bit Windows Vista and PRS-500
  • Using 64 bit Windows XP
You should add them to the list.
Oh, and the Sony Store doesn't work here on Mac... it did when I first installed, but the functionality has since died.

Like some others, EBL 3.0 doesn't work at all.
I have an updated Vista (32 bits, SP2), and I "used" the 2.5 version before.
When I install 3.0, I need to try several times to succeed.
Then when I start it (even after a reboot) the UI doesn't start at all. The processus is started (in the task manager).

I installed it on a Virtual PC with XP Sp3 with success, but a device won't appear on this virtal pc...

Finally I reinstalled 2.5 !

I do it like you see on the snapshot.
With this option 2 checked, it's working. When switching to option 1 (which had been the default setting on my system) it's crashing again, when copying to internal memory of my reader. I can copy to both memory cards though.

Yeh... I did it like that too, then reboot as asked to. When I started it after reboot, I had that pretty window with the 3 options :
- Look for a solution and restart the program
- Close the program
- Debug the program

I just got my Sony-Prs600 today and it works very well so far.

Except, the eBook Library is driving me batty! For some reason whenever I put books on it, it sometimes changes it titles to something else. At first, I thought it was just grabbing the first sentence in the book to use as its title, so I edited a couple of ebooks to check it. Which didn't work.

I have noticed, txt files will use the file name as the title. While rtf or PDF appear to be making up some sort of title for itself. I'm assuming its some sort of internal file title within the file, since the titles are somewhat related to the e-books. For example, I got 2 PDF files called, "DiaryofNathanAdler1" and "DiaryofNathanAdler2", when I import them into the ebook library, the titles change to "Diary of Nathan Adler1.rtf" and "Diary of Nathan Adler 02.rtf". And a Discworld e-book I got has its title changed to just Terry Pratchett.

Although, oddly enough, the poetry PDFs I got from my class have the correct titles attached to them.

And its even more annoying since I can't change the titles in the eBook Library program! You'd think they would have that option in the program. Or maybe it does and I'm not using the program correctly.
