Yes but I would only have one at a time connected by USB. I am not sure what you mean by override. Do you mean something to do with the Sony Reader software?

Question

When I try to download a library book on to the T1 it will only go on to the PRS 350. Both readers software has been downloaded correctly as far as I'm aware.Any suggestions ?

Open the new Sony Reader for PC/Mac software. Connect your T1 by USB. It should show up in the Reader software as an attached device. It might try to sync books and rewrite what is on the T1. Whenever the sync message pops up I quickly hit cancel to stop it. The old Reader Library software does not work with the T1.

Another alternative is that you might be able to download books directly from your library website. It works in the US at least.

Is your T1 authorized?

Hi Helen, Yes, both the T1 and PRS350 are authorised to the laptop. The T1 is about a year old and has been fine until I downloaded the software for the PRS350 in January this year. Now any books my husband tries to download from our library go straight on to my PRS350 instead of his T1 !! Quite frustrating !
Does this make sense ? I did wonder if the fact that my PRS350 is WI-FI ,as is the laptop, but not theT1, make any difference. Over to you !! Thanks !

First: It seems you are confused about which reader is what. The T1 can't be a year old, and the 350 does not have wiFi.
It sounds like you keep them both connected at the same time. That is probably not a good idea.
Just connect the reader you want the book transferred to, transfer it, disconnect it, connect the other one if you want something transferred to that one as well.
My 350 is temporarily on loan to someone otherwise I would try to do see for myself for better understanding.

The new Sony software does not seem to work with my 350 (small 5 inch reader). It (Sony Software) just sits there not responding.

I do recommend calibre as well.

As nibs said, you can't send to both readers at once even with calibre which is open source and supported by voluntary donations.

I have to say I HATE the new Reader software! The fact that it starts syncing without asking me if that's what I want to do and creating lots of collections was enough for me to uninstall it. I keep the Reader Library on my computer to handle library books for my 950. Overdrive library books I have downloaded directly to the T1.
Maybe Adobe Digital Edition is a better choice for library books? I will not use the new Sony software as long as there are alternatives!

FWIW, I manage five separate Sony readers (PRS-950, 2X PRS-350s, PRS-T1, PRS-505) on the same PC laptop with Calibre.
And sometimes manage 3 with Sony reader, so it can be done.
