Synching PRS 600 with Mac
I am pleased to have found this forum! As a pc IBM user i am completely mystified by the software. the PRS 600 is supposedly plug 'n play. I have not experienced this`! I found some helpful tips on this forum but nothing has worked so far. I can load a book onto the Reader, but when I try to synch with the mac - no go.
Not having received any drivers with the package I downloaded all software and managed to synch one book out of My Books folder and that was it - should I wipe the whole thing & start over? I hope I have given enough info in my frustration! Thanks.

I don't have a Mac, but many people have reported problems with synching in general. You might want to simply drag and drop the books on to the reader in Sony Reader Library or use Calibre rather than use the synching feature. It caused more hassle than it was worth for me.
I'm sure you will get a more specific answer from some of the others.

How are you loading the book into your reader? Install the latest Sony Reader Library, connect you reader to mac via USB cable that came with your reader. Open Sony Reader Library and import your books into the Sony Reader Library first, then drag and drop your books to your reader icon or sync

I have a Mac and a PRS 505. I'd really recommend Calibre rather than any of the Sony solutions. It just works, and the creator keeps it regularly updated and bug fixed.

You don't need to use any software at all unless you're buying DRM-protected books; just copy the book directly to the Reader via the drive that mounts when you connect the USB cable.
