Reader not recognised on 64bit Win7 PC

Hi,

I tried to plug my reader to my 64bit Windows 7 PC for the first time, in order to feed it with Calibre. But the reader was not recognized as a device. I don't remember the exact error message but it said that there is no driver available.

Right now I'm using an SD card as workaround which is ok for reading but not for my ego
Well, giving up on finding out myself is not better for the ego but it is much nicer to communicate in the forum with a chance for a solution. However, sending the reader to Sony for a firmware update is not an option for me.

Thanks,
hansl

You might want to check out the calibre forum... I seem to remember a warning about calibre not working with 64 bit PC... or not working properly

You are right, regarding 64 bit Windows 7. Apparently a firmware update would help.
Thanks for saving my time.
