PRS-650 Sync problems

I have just purchased a PRS-650 and transferred about 100 books to it from the library on my computer. When I try to sync with the library, it appears to hang.

Is there a maximum number of books that can be synced at any one time?

Thanks

Re: PRS-650 Sync problems

Hello,
There is no limit to the amount of books you can download to your library, and storage is only limited by the amount of space avail on your Hard Drive.

if you are having issues downloading try these helpful steps:

It's the software. I was having the same problem with even just a couple books. Try a different software. I did a search and calibre works great. Look it up. Trust me.

Re: PRS-650 Sync problems

Same problem here but with much larger volumes.

I am using the latest version of calibre and a 32gb SDHC card which seems to work fine.

I uploaded 10 books. Synch was in seconds.

I uploaded 10000 books. It would never synch ( i left it over at night and all it did was boot/synch for few mins/restart - endless)

So i tried to find the limit.

I uploaded 500 books. No problem. 1000 books still no problem. 2k books still ok.

5k books. It would take too long

Anyone having uploaded more than 5k books with a synch done in reasonable amount of time?

I am using Calibre 0.7.59 on a windows 7 x64 Ultimate, and i always handle device disconnects very very carefully (first eject device from calibre, then close calibre, then shutdown pc, then remove usb cable from device)

Firmware of the reader is the latest

All books are ePub

Any ideas please?

Re: PRS-650 Sync problems

Hi.

Before all, I want to say that I already searched in all
Sony websites to solve my problem, but I didn't
find any answer.

So it's why I'm asking here.

I'm trying to sync books to my PRS-650.
All the books I want to sync are loaded
in my library.

Now I want to sync them on my PRS-650 as usual
when I connect my Reader to the computer.

But now, in the schedule board, the loading is
stucked at the option that I could translate (I'm french-canadian) as "Flash Sync progressing" since one day.

I tried to cancel and sync again, same result.

I disconnected my Reader, putted it off, and reconnected my reader to the computer, same result.

I cancelled the sync, and synchronised it again, same result.

Ii is impossible to sync my books to my Reader.

My computer is running good on Window Vista, with a dual-core Toshiba Satellite computer.

And I have the latest version of the Sony Reader software, I checked it twice.
