Transfer notes from reader to computer

Hi,

I am reading a book and I highlighted some paragraphs and made some comments on some of them. They show up on the reader, but I don't know how to make them appear on my computer. I played with Sony's software (that piece of @#$%), I dragged the book into library section, it shows there now, but no trace of notes!

How does one do this?
Thanks,

Laurentiu

You need to "sync" the Reader with your PC. That transfers your notes and annotation back to the PC.

I never sync. Plug in your reader, open sony software, open the book in your reader. Underneath there is an icon with a page and a green arrow, it exports your notes to rtf. The icon next to it (open book with pencil) shows the list of your notes underneath your book, and you can navigate to them.

Thanks - I didn't know about that method.

I synced it, but it didn't work. omk3's method worked perfectly!
Thanks to both of you!

Okay... I followed omk3's method and got my notes converted to RTF, but... is there a way to be able to get the page images larger to where I can actually see my hand-written notes? Any time I try to drag the arrows within the file to make the image larger it just distorts the image. So without the images, the notes file is pretty darn useless.
