Getting it on Vista

Any ideas how to get a file from a Vista machine onto my reader? Let's assume I can use one of these nifty BBeB converters to generate the file. Am I out of luck actually getting it onto the reader?

Thanks!

I plugged a SD card reader with 1GB Sandisk SD card into Vista and copied some BBeBook LRF files onto the card. They showed up just fine on the Sony Reader.

Sony CONNECT Tech Support told me that there is a software update planned for this month that will allow the CONNECT software to run on VISTA. You could also install a virtual machine, set up WinXP in it, and install CONNECT there. However it may be faster to wait for the software upgrade.

The connect software runs fine on Vista - or at least it I've had no problems whatsoever on my machine!
