Sony PRS-500 eReader Firmware update available

I am using a Sony PRS-500 eReader that I have bought second handed recently. But after some time I found that this ereader is not able to get recognized by my Windows 7 pc or either the calibre. When I went to their official website then I noticed that I had to send it to get the latest update and then only this problem will be solved. I was wondering instead of sending the eReader, can I get it from somewhere, where it might be available for download? Thanks

Well, if you want your ebook reader to work with epub then you will have to send it to Sony to get it updated with the latest firmware. But for Windows support, you will have to get some special driver that might be available on the original disk that comes with the Sony PRS-500 eReader. Do you have the disk or not, because without it you cannot use it on Windows? Get it from the previous owner if you dont have it.

You need to download the ReaderLibraryInstaller_3.3.00.07130.exe from here. This is the driver through which your eReader can be recognized in the Windows 7 computer. After double clicking the ReaderLibraryInstaller_3.3.00.07130.exe file, you just need to follow the instructions on the screen to get your device recognized on your Windows pc.

Now you dont need to send your Sony PRS-500 eReader to get the latest firmware. All you can do is now, download and install a tool called Reader for PC from here. With this software you can check for the latest firmware available for your eReader and download and update the same on your ebook reader and also there are lot of good all-in-one features given in the same tool.
