Unhappy prs-600 epub resizing text

Hello I have the prs-600 reader and have not any real complaints about it. However, since they switched from bbeb to the new epub format i have had problems with some e-books i have purchased. For example, the new e-book Afraid
by Jack Kilborn and some other ebooks i bought from the Sony store in epub format will not resize the pages. I have noticed though that the title name at the top of the page resizes but the rest of the text does not. any sugestions??? I tried sony support and the store support to no avail.

Hi & welcome to MR.

Sorry I can't help with your problem. If you don't get someone to help you on this thread, try and re-post it on the Sony forum.

You have the option of stripping the DRM and converting them to LRF. I haven't heard of this problem, but that sounds irritating.

Hmm, I've never seen any that would not resize, but I suspect it is possible. What books? Are they all from the same publisher?

They won't resize I think if the font size is set in points.

So the only option is to strip the DRM and fix the CSS.

First try deleting the book from your library and redownloading it (you won't have to pay for it again). If that doesn't work, in the case of "Afraid," I would email the author. He's pretty up in technology and ebooks and he might help you out.
