Calibre and sony formatting when opening book

Hello all

I have been a Windows user untill the beginning of this year. For 2010, I have only an ubuntu system. No windows in my pc.

I use Calibre from moving my books to my prs505. When I had windows, I was using the Sony library soft.

I have notice that when I move my books with calibre to my prs505, after openning them, The unit starts s formatting process that takes its time. With the Sony soft. that was not necessary.

I will like to know if there is any setup that would do this formatting process within calibre and not in the device.

Thanks

I've never tried epub. I have always used lrf . Main reason was that this was the native format for the reader. I will give it a go.
Thanks for advice.
