I mainly use calibre to manage books for the Sony Reader. I can't really use it for the DR1000, and I don't need it to get books on Stanza on the Touch. My main ebook library is just folders on my HD (and backed up somewhere else) - I de-DRM everything as soon as I have bought and downloaded it, so I can do whatever I need with the files.
I use Calibre also (and made a donation to Kovid this week) and only have a small number of books on my Sony. I've found I can't put my DRM books on Calibre though, it bothers me that I have to keep them in Adobe. I'd like all my books in one place. Also, I do backup my Calibre files. Wish I knew how to de-DRM books I have bought!

Anyway, to get to the subject of this posting: after reading a book I keep it in Calibre and rate it (stars). If I see a book with a rating, I know I have read it. I will never not keep a copy of a book I have read!

I can't speak for Vista but on Win XP you will find your Sony ebooks in the folder /my documents/my books/ebook Library/. With obscure file names.

You can right click and drag them to wherever you want, (choose copy rather than move).
Or just drag the whole directory & copy where you want.

and if I do move them to a cd and later want to read them again they will only work on that sony reader is that correct????
Or also on any other Sony reader / PC you have authorised within your Sony account, up to 6 I think.

When you're using the Sony Ebook Library Software, and you have a book open on the screen, you can click on the information "i" icon it'll show you the location (path) where the book is stored on your computer and the computer name of the file. The "i" icon is in the upper right hand corner of the reading pane in version 2.5 of the software...not sure if it's in the same location in 3.0 or not.

This is exactly what I do. I have several "Read" folders, one for each genre. And I don't synch any of them.
