Can't Delete from eBook Library

I had some trouble with the eBook Library - and the good people on this forum helped me get the program reinstalled and working correctly. Now i am not able to delete some PDF docs I put on my PRS 300 in the past - because it says it was "sync'd and needs to be deleted from the library." Problem is: they are not in the library any longer.

My only problem now is: It starts to sync and just keeps going. I cancel it after about 20 minutes.

Is there any way to get these files off the reader?? Also, is there any other program you would recommend to get files from online stores and do the sync so that I can avoid this Sony program?

I use Mac with 10.5.8. eBook is version 3.

Thanks

Did you try going to the document on the 300 and deleting it from there (not plugged into the computer)? I can delete anything right on my 505. I never delete it from the library or use the library to delete items on the 505. I don't use the sync function either though. Have you tried Calibre for transferring documents?

You cannot buy books from Sony without the library, but there are a lot of online stores where you can purchase ebooks that will work with it. But it is nice to get the freebies from Sony if nothing else.

The MR wiki has links to many stores where you can purchase and get freebies:

MR members have also uploaded many free classics (after diligently fixing them): http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/E-book_uploads
