  • There is application named calibre from http://calibre-ebook.com that can be used for ebook management under Linux. It allows you to edit ebook information if you use your pc to download, and also allows you to store them to both the main memory or storage card found in your Sony ereader. Look for calibre in your distribution's package manager.

  • If you are using Ubuntu you can use Calibre to manage your ebook reader. It should detect your ebook reader. I have used it in Ubuntu 10.x, and Linux Mint 11.

    Calibre can be found either at their website
    http://calibre-ebook.com/
    and/or through Ubuntu Software Manager

  • Sony eBook readers r not officially supported on Linux-based OS. But when the the device is connected it grants access to its internal flash memory & any memory card slots as though they were usb storage devices except prs-500 series, allowing to transfer files directly. Most probably there r some 3rd party SW (like Calibre) that can help regarding this issue. Also adobe digital edition performs the same but u have to install wine first.

    Note if the device is locked, using the optional 4 digit pin it will not mount via USB, the lock option needs to be disabled in order to mount the device.
