PRS 300: Duplicate titles on reader (and growing!)

Hi there,

I am a proud new owner of the pocket reader and I am loving it. But it seems that every time I plug it into my PC it copies across another copy of each of the books I have on my PC. Its up to 4 copies of every book.

I have the latest windows reader SW and purchased the books through the sony book store.

If I delete one of the duplicate copies from the reader, when I synch up, it deletes all copies.

Any suggestions?

Turn off sync. In my experience it causes more problems than it solves.

+1 I don't use the Sony software, but it's just to easy for sync to become "confused".

I was kind of leaning that way. Maybe I should flip over to Calibre.

Thanks for the tips

Depending on how many files you have to handle, simply drag and drop from PC to reader and back may work for you too. I use the Sony software only to create collections :-)
