This is very disappointing. I bought the pocket edition along with a gift card and I'm receiving the same error. I hope this is not an indication of how it will be all the time when trying to download books or access the store. I don't expect this type of service from Sony.

Same here. Can not download the Library. I guess I will try again tomorrow. How disappointing. I tried it on two different computers. One with 32bit and one with 64bit Vista.

I may have found another solution. Try turning off DEP. Im no super-tech, but this so far seems to be working. Here's a link on how to do it for vista

Okay. I was finally able to download the software about 10:30 CST. It was only have repeatedly downloading the software. So, I guess the key is to keep doing it until you are successful.

Thank you so much. I upgraded my computer to Win7 tonight, and just couldn't download the file.

I tried this several times and got a few different problems. In several cases it wouldn't even start to install and would display the statistics "-1% complete NaN/ NaN time expected" A few other times it would start loading and get to around 9 - 10 % and the expected time would shoot up and the message "Setup could not be completed. Check your internet connection and try again" I do know that my internet connection is fine. I tried this on several computers all to no avail.

After these attempts failed I tried obtaining the Library software. I tried downloading it from both the eReader website (version 3.1 for PC which is compatible with windows 7) and from Barnes and Noble and both times it started downloading at a faster rate but soon was down to about 0.06 KB per second. I don't know what the problem is and hope someone here can help! If you have any questions just let me know and I'll do my best to answer them!


Your not alone. I nearly went back to the shop my daughter got it from for me Xmas present. Its not internet connection I have tried PC & MAC on ADSL and also on 3G no luck. XMAS rush I guess ill have to read the 11 freebees first then it may work. I only got to 6% thats my best score so
far. How will we know when they have solved the surge of attempts.

Not related to Sony, but I finally was able to download my purchase from B&N Bookstore just now after trying all day yesterday...

Good luck everyone.

I had the same problem - tried downloading it by plugging in the ereader and also by going to the sony website. However, I finally downloaded it this morning by going to the Sony website and finding the product support page and selecting the model. From there, I selected the required Library download (under the General tab). For some reason, this took me to a completely different page from the one you get when you select E-reader from their products page.
This allowed me to download the Library Installer and save it to my desktop (once I had disabled my anti-virus). Then I had no problems installing the library itself and it only took a few minutes.
