Questions about updating index after adding books to Memroy card
I just purchased an Sony reader for myself and one for my father. I am setting up mine with a bunch of books, and then I am just going to copy the contents of my memory card to a second card for my father. Two questions:
1) When I add a book to the card, I have an annoying delay while the index is updated. I have a second delay when I change font sizes for the first time. I am adding about 100 files, and I would rather not have to open them one at a time. Is there a way to force the reader to update the index for all books at the same time?
2) My dad is 71, and needs the large font. Is there any way to get the reader to default to the large font for all books?

The obvious answer would be to add all the files onto your device by using the Connect software (even for books on the sd card). The index might even go with the SD card copy to your father's device.

I think if you open the books in the Connect Software, and change them to the L font, and then xfer them to the card, they'll open in L on the reader.
Regarding the copying and the opening delay ... I haven't tried this, so it's mostly a guess, but if you copy the entire 'Sony Reader' directory (that the software makes) from the first card to the second one, the Reader may accept the cache.xml data and not re-do the indexing. I'd suggest that if you try this, you check it on your own Reader before handing the card to your dad.
