Calibre conversion probs

Hi,
I just got my new PRS-505 and I have gigs of ebooks. I've noticed certain file types aren't displaying well on the PRS-505 so I thought converting them to LRF format would be the best option.
I found Calibre and it looked like the perfect software for my needs.

The problem is everytime I try to convert anything it crashes. I get 'calibre.exe has stopped working' error. I'm using windows vista 32. I've tried uninstall and reinstall a couple of times. The rest of the program seems to work fine, even the news conversion.

Anyone have any idea what the problem might be?

Thx

Running Win XP SP3 and calibre (and previous versions) have always crashed for me if I convert enough files to lrf. After four or so conversions, a hang can occur anytime. A quit and restart temporarily mends it.

Hmmm...I have done a search and do not have that file. The only libprs500 I can find are a text file and an install file

Do you maybe have a calibre.log file?

I'm not sure about Vista, but isn't there a way to hide certain file type extensions like you can in XP? Open up that text file and see if it looks like a bunch of output statements.

Here are the libprs500.log file... it seems to be mainly book upload errors though (it doesn't recognise word docs as an acceptable file type to put on the prs505 even though the reader handles them well). I've also added the error message from windows when it crashes for convert book (calibre.txt)
Attached Files
File Type: txt calibre.txt (651 Bytes, 183 views)
File Type: doc libprs500.doc (26.5 KB, 263 views)

You haven't attached the files and the reader doesn't handle doc files. the SONY software converts them internally before uploading to the reader.

Hmm there isn't anything useful in those logs and it works fine for me on vista 32. You can try running the conversions from the command line instead

Code:
any2lrf filename

My puter has been playing up a bit the last few weeks. Am at the point of formatting for a fresh start so hopefully that will clear up problems. Maybe calibre will behave then.
Sorry for being such a newb with this stuff...so to manually convert its eg 'start' 'accessories' 'run' - any2lrf d:/ebooks/novels/Feist, Raymond E - Faerie Tale.txt
Where does it save the conversion to?
I've tried the above and the dos box does something then it closes and I can't find any .lrf files but the ones from calibre. Hence the 300 questions...lol
I really appreciate you taking the time to help

Kovid, some of my rtf files have problems converting. They show up on the reader if I just upload the straight .rtf file, but I'm used to loving Calibre's conversion.. which I could do manually by adjusting font size and such on the rtf file but was wondering if there's a way to fix the file itself to make it convert.

For instance, something like this:

('RtfInvalidCodeException', u'no map found\nmap is "ansicpg874"\n'):
Failed to perform job: Convert book:
