How to move public library book from ADE to Sony Library?

Hi! I'm new to my Sony, and I love it, but there seem to be some kinks for mac users. I checked out a couple of books from the public library and they are in ADE. It doesn't recognize my reader, so I have to transfer the titles to Sony Library to push them onto my reader. I can't figure out how to do it on my mac. It looks like I've got the titles listed under downloads as .acsm files (whatever that is), and also in ADE. Any detailed instructions would be really appreciated!

I think the problem you're having is that you're choosing to SAVE the file when you download it. You should be choosing OPEN instead.

Intuitive, isn't it?

Oh, thank you! That worked! I don 't know why I find this so complicated, but I'm struggling. Finally took my computer in to the apple store and it turned out I had something corrupt in my sony library. I keep reading about Calibre as an alternative, but haven't figured it out yet, either.

Hi mom2three,
I'm pretty new to e-readers also. Just bought my PRS-900 about a month ago. I found calibre and am muddling through how it works but love what I've been able to do so far. It's an easy download and seems like it does more than Sony Reader software. The people here at mobileread are very helpful with info and directions. I say try calibre and see how you like it.
