sony reader 3.2 not working on my mac

this actually isnt my reader, its my wife and i am trying to help her.

she recently updated her reader software to 3.2, and ever since it hasnt worked right.

the reader library software shows as being open in the dock bar, but there is no window for the program. a menu bar shows at the top but it only says reader library next to the apple symbol with no other menu options.

anyone have any idea on this. did a search and couldnt find anything. I just want my wife to be able to download books and read them. shame on me for going the sony route.

I had this problem. Try searching out all the various Sony preferences (look both in ~/Library/... and also in /System/Library/... (I'm afraid I don't remember exact directories, and I'm at my work PC right now [sigh]). Delete all the various preferences, then re-install. There is a thread somewhere in this topic that gives exact locations, though.

Fixed my problem.

I find it's generally best to use the Sony software ONLY for purchasing books from Sony. For all other interaction with my Sony Reader I use Calibre instead. It's faster, more reliable, provides more functionality, works better, etc. Overall, Calibre makes the Sony Library software look thoroughly pathetic, with two exceptions:
  1. Sony's graphic design is better. Calibre looks like it was designed by programmers.
  2. Sony's software can buy books from the Sony store. Calibre can't.
In all other ways, Calibre kicks their *ss!
