Note: For the next few posts, I will be discussing my choice of eBook, what I think of the device, the software, and finish off with a few tips for users.
Since the firmware for the Sony Reader reached version 1.1, the Sony Reader has had support for Adobe Digital Editons, a DRM-protected format for eBooks. To use Adobe Digital Editions with your Reader, you need to do the following:
- Go to the Adobe Digital Editions website
- Sign up for an account (it is free)
- Download and install the software
- Authorize your computer
- Connect the Reader
- Authorize the Reader
After that is done, you simply need to buy books (which I will cover in a later post), download them, and then copy them to your Reader. You don’t actually need to use Adobe Digital Editions for this, which has an advantage; Adobe Digital Editions is unable to edit the metadata of the files.
