PRS+ Dictionary disabled Sony 505

I have downloaded and intalled the PRS+ firmware sucessfully. The dictionary option is disabled. What do I need to enable it? I found some posts but it is unclear what I need to do. I downloaded a file that put a keypad when I switched on my reader. Came with a message dictionary not loaded.

you need dictionary files.
Create a folder "dictionary" in \database\system\PRSPlus\ and copy the dictionary files.

Many thanks for your help. I have followed the instructions but it still does not work. I have copied the folder structure on the internal drive. There was already a folder caled "database" do I created folders inside this. Is this correct? Is it case sensitive? I have then copied the .rar file into the "dictionary folder" Is this correct? Or do I have to something to this file? Still says message "dictionary disabled."

You have to decompress/unrar the *.rar file(s), There should (at least one) *.dic file(s) in the "dictionary"-folder mentioned above.

Then I think, you have to press "disabled" once in te dictionary-settings to get a list of available dictionaries, an choose one.

ATM Dictionary for 505 is a standalone app.

Goto Games and Utilities -> Dictionary

The app should start.

There are three colums on the right. Select one with joypad left right, and select the character with the numeric-key.
