PRS-500 not recognized by Calibre?

So I just got my newly updated (hooray for epub upgrade) PRS-500 back from Sony. Linux now sees my device as soon as I plug it in (Didn't before), but Calibre doesn't seem to notice it exists. For all intents and purposes Calibre is useless for managing the device at the moment.

Ideas?

So I tried calibre-debug -d and here's what I get (I've diabled plugins for everything except Sony and Kindle btw):

Code:
[monty@localhost ~]$ calibre-debug -d
USB devices on system: [(16700, 33093, 256), (7531, 2, 518), (7531, 1, 518), (1356, 798, 554), (7531, 1, 518), (7531, 1, 518), (7531, 1, 518), (2652, 17667, 256), (2652, 17666, 256), (16700, 33062, 256), (2652, 17664, 256), (7531, 1, 518), (1452, 4754, 1), (1447, 4128, 256), (1118, 1885, 256), (1293, 567, 7), (1293, 567, 7), (7531, 2, 518), (1033, 90, 256)]
Looking for KINDLE
Looking for KINDLE2
Looking for KINDLE_DX
Looking for PRS500
Looking for PRS505
Looking for PRS700
So it's not being detected at all.

I can mount the device using:
Code:
pmount /dev/sdb
Unfortunately it makes zero difference.

The updated PRS-500 (with the ePub firmware) is now a USB mass storage device.

To clarify though, with the new firmware in the PRS-500 it shows as "96 MB Filesystem" on my linux box when I plug it into the usb. It auto-mounts.

If I unmount it and try Calibre again it's as if it's not plugged in at all.

I'm curious: is that with or without memory card?

Do you have access to a PRS-500, Kovid?
It's good news, btw: once calibre supports new firmwared PRS-500's you'll never have reason to get another message from me complaining my PRS-500 won't mount right in calibre Should be similar to the 505..

calibre doesn't support the 500 with new firmware. I probably have an old 500 lying around somewhere, but it would need to be shipped to SONY.

Good idea to send it off: give the thing a whole new lease of life theoretically

What needs to be run so you can see what is returned when then 500 is mounted? I can easily do it as long as it can be done on Windows XP or Windows 7.

calibre-debug -d

presumably the new firmware make the 500 act like the 505, so the driver should be a straight port

Taking one for the team. :o)

Kovid,

In the interest of getting Calibre "up to date" with the new firmware I'm willing to send you my PRS-500 if that'll help. I'll want it back, of course, but I'm not using it at the moment. I read most of my books through Kindle for the iPhone so it wouldn't put me out at all.

Let me know if you'd like to do that. I've got a box here and get it shipped out this week if you want. Email me at Eric.Montgomery at yahoo.

Eric
