To format "flash" the internal memory:

Get the universal flasher here....

Then...unpack the contents of the archive to the root of your SD card.

Plug the flash card into the PRS-505

Press 6

Wait for the PRS-505 to report "Reflashing was successful. Rebooting."

Take the flash card out of the PRS-505

Wait for the unit to reboot

The unit is now without operating system, now download the latest firmware from sony and update the unit to this firmware.
