PRS-505 doesn't recognize sd cards anymore

by a3nnis / November 2, 2010 1:33 PM PDT

I have two sd cards that I interchange frequently. One of them that I use to the most now has over a hundred books on it and now everything from page turning to jumping between menus is slowing down. I decided to put about half the books on the other card.

I put the other card in the reader and connected it to the computer and booted up the reader library. I put a few books on the card from my computer by way of the Reader Library. When I disconnected and tried to read the ebooks, they weren't there. I have tried everything I can think of.

(1) I tried a different sd card.
(2) I reformatted the card to fat(32)and reloaded the books
(3) Using the computer I transferred everything from the old card to the new card, thinking that maybe the reader wasn't creating the database.

(4) I re-flashed the firmware.

The one thing I haven't tried is purchasing a Sony memory stick and trying that, mainly because of the added expense in case it didn't work.

My Computer is an Acer. I'm running MSWin 7 Home Premium.

Can anyone help me please?
Thank you,

But there are no Sony people here to answer. All helpers are voluntary and this forum is not very active. I suggest the more active Digital Camera forum if you want more exposure.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
