The Sony PRS-T2 e-Reader just came out a few days ago and we just posted a solid hands on review. In this video we document the steps you need to take to load on free books from the internet or have purchased from other ebook stores.
This latest generation of Sony e-Readers does not work with Adobe Digital Editions, instead you have to use the accompanied Sony Reader for PC software in order to load in EPUB books you have purchased from Barnes and Noble, Kobo, or any other store that sells them in DRM Protected format. Once you download it to your PC, you need to have an Adobe Digital Editions account. When you install the Sony Reader for PC software off of the main drive of your Sony PRS-T2, you can easily copy over protected content. Once you click on File and then Import, you can add the book into your main library. You can use it here to read on your PC or click on the Sync Menu and sync it to your PC. Anything you buy from the Sony eBook Store will be automatically delivered right to your e-reader, including newspaper subscriptions.
The second program we teach you how to use is Calibre. This is a free online program available on the internet and gives you flexible control over your ebook management. You can change cover art, authors name, and book series. One useful feature is being able to fetch ISBN and Book Description information.
Finally, we show you the internal directory structure of the Sony e-Reader via Windows Explorer. If you want to simply drag and drop books into your reader, we show you the most effective way to do it.
