My tip: I'm downloading a lot of individual, free sf/f stories to use on the Reader, so I title them: "SS - [author last name], [story name]". That way, all the short stories are grouped in one place, making it easier to find everything on the list. I really do wish we could create folders to manage content better.

Here's what I'm doing (last post):

(Basically put them all in a single file and use preset bookmarks to separate the stories.)

You might make collections, that is what I do. Keeps the books that tie in together. To Make a collection, you go into Connect software, and click on the big "+" button in the bottom left corner.

Been meaning to reply when I first saw you post this, it's a great idea .

The only downside to that is the fact that it needs to go into the internal memory instead of a memory card...

Any one tried "Printing" a PDF file from Google Maps.... Will see if it beats the paper one when I go to a client tomorrow....

PS: If you can get by. turn off margins when you create a document for the reader. That gives you a bit more view room..

New tip: should you be without your Reader charger, you can use a Sony PSP one. Works fine.

If this is a dupe ... sorry: Will delete quickly if so..

If you are having problems getting PrimoPDF to print out correctly for the Reader try this. Found it in the PrimoPDF forum...

The secret is creating a page definition. The info is at this Microsoft Answer Page! Works on XP also.

How to Create Custom Forms in Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/157172/

Follow the steps.... Use 5.24 WIDE, 6.69 HEIGHT and number for margin. I like zero margins... Give it a name like Sony Reader. Can be anything unique.

You will select this when you pick the PrimoPDF for your printer.. Select Properties then Advance For paper pick the one with the name you created above...

Will need to set the program page size but that easy...

Thats it. Comes out nice!

Since that one works. Then the moble car adapter for the PSP should also work well! Nice tip!

As will the iGo PSP Power Tip if, like me, you've been trying to consolidate all your chargers into one.

SD Card behaviour

Hi all.

I haven't seen this mentioned in this thread, so I thought I would make an observation about memory card usage.

I was doing fine for the first 48 hours, loading up files on an SD card for consumption on the Reader.

Then, over the weekend, I decideed to add a couple of reference texts to the reader, and, while happily bookmarked in a gutenburg .rtf book, I popped the card, added in the (tech-weenie) document and powered up the Reader. Lo and behold, all that was there was a blank screen. I had to hit the reset pinhole to get my reader back. This happened a few times over the weekend. I just tried an experiment, and, it appears that you need to exit any 'current document' prior to removing/replacing the memory cards. Even if the document you were reading is still on the card, and nothing has been done except to add a new file or two to the card.

I've been through the user guide and didn't see any mention of this, and I'm happy to be corrected if this isn't the case, but I thought I'd report it, since it drove me rather nuts for a few days.

Cheers!

Ah- I have had the same problem. What I do now is make sure I'm on the very top area when taking out/ putting in the card or else when I turn on the power it'll load and turn off and repeat that unless I reset / connect the device via the usb cord .
