prs 300 issues

The PRS300 is a terrible device. Mostly because of the horrible firmware included. If it can be updated, I want to know. The major problems are listed below:

 various charging problems

   sometimes won't charge at all for no apparent reason

   won't charge from a wall charger if it's on, may not charge at all without being unplugged and replugged 

 getting books on it

   won't work if the books are simply dragged into the folder


      slow and resource intensive

      often tells the device it's busy when it's not

      often fails to move books to ereader

      doesn't support drag and drop

      often coppies books to ereader, but doesn't make the accessible by the reader's menu

      sometimes coppies books and gives them a useless, incorrect name


   sometimes previous reading page is spontaneously lost

   slow everything


   it's probably just shot, but with all the issues I've had in the past with charging, I'm not certain


If anybody knows how to fix any of this, let me know. I haven't listed the problems that I've found answers for. This ereader is terrible, and I should probably never buy another Sony ereader, but I like making what I have work.
