Install partition AutoRun on PRS-300

Is there any way to delete/remove the separate Installer partition from the PRS-300 and release the memory it is wasting back to the main drive for use with reading books. OK, so it's not much memory wasted, but I find it very annoying that the partition "autoruns" everytime you plug the ereader into a PC - even once you have installed & setup the Sony eReader software.

Sorry, I do not know anything about PRS300, but disabling autorun on Windows is a good idea not only because of PRS300.
Any USB key, CD or removable harddisk can have autorun that might install something you do not wish to have installed.

To disable autorun on Windows see following:
http://www.pctools.com/guides/registry/detail/1142/
Quote:
- start regedit
- find [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\
Explorer] variable NoDriveTypeAutoRun
and set it to "11111111" (binary)
- find key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Policies\
Explorer] NoDriveTypeAutoRun
and set it to "11111111" (binary)
Or download some Tweak tool for windows (trial version would be enough), for example from the above site, and disable autorun for selected drives from a nice, easy GUI
