I'm saving your post in my Evernote, Sony Tips and Tricks section.
Just re-checked my Reader for PC, with the device plugged in, and yep, it's set up that way: that is, every category blank (de-selected), so that means nothing can sync.
A dialogue box comes up every time I plug in the device to when the Desktop version is open asking whether I want to sync or not, I cancel out.
I originally got this info about turning off Sync from other posters on Mobileread, though the thread that helped me is probably long buried.
I do like this helpful forum!
