PRS-600 Problem

PRS-600 e-reader using Ubuntu version 10.04 LTS the Lucid Lynx. But cant get the darn thing to work with calibre so here I am. Im really not sure if its something I didn't install or if its something wrong with the install or if I need to install something else. I see the e-reader mount when I plug it in I just cant get it to show up in calibre.

Not certain on this but have you installed Sony software... believe instal needed to put some drivers in place then you can forget it and carry on with calibre...
