Need a windows 7 driver for the sony PRS 550.

I have a Sony E Reader. Model PRS 550. I am running Windows 7 Professional. The driver that came with the product is for Windows XP. I cannot seem to find a driver for this model. On the sony website there is a driver for the PRS 505 and for the PRS 500...neither seems to work. Thanks for any help.

SOURCE: DCR DVD 201E Handycam and Windows Vista

Hi,

I have the same problem; however there is a workaraound. If you plug your camcorder in to your usb drive and power on so that the Vista Plug 'n' Play can automatically install a driver for using as an external drive (bit like a usb stick)

When you go to my computer you will see an extra drive explore and see no files!

Well in the camcorder itself, there is a function to finalise the disc, perform this action and you should be able to see the files including the dvd menu files on the disc in my computer.

Drag and Drop to your computer. And use with what ever Software you want to.

This could also depend on the recording format you have set in the camcorder.

Hope this works for all.

SOURCE: nvidia 7400 card dowsnt work with windows 7

Here is the link from where you can download NVIDIA 7400 driver for windows 7.

http://www.nvidia.com/object/geforce_notebook_winvista_win7_179.48_beta.html

Open the above link and Click on "Supported products", you will find your card listed there.

Download the file and installed it.Your graphic will work fine with Windows 7.

Your Notebook doesn't support windows 7 according to Sony.But if Windows 7 work fine with your Notebook then it's good.The graphic card which comes with your laptop is support by Windows 7 and the driver for that chipset is available and there should not be any problem with your graphic card.

Happy New year..

SOURCE: My sony reader has stopped working. When I click

Just spent 2.5 hours figuring on this out with a Mac. Sony customer support was TOTALLY worthless. Finally figured out my PRS-505 firmware was not up to date. This is a problem because there is no indication of a firmware update on the Mac support page since you cannot update the firmware using a Mac. Out of desperation I checked the Windows updates and there it was - the firmware update that was needed to make this work. I took a chance and updated it on Windows 7 using Parallels and it FINALLY WORKS. Days like this I wonder why the hell I gave up paper books. Here hoping that Apple can make a decent tablet so Mac users are not 2nd class citizens in the eBook world. Unh. What a way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Hi!

You can try to manually remove the software and reinstall, BTW there is no operation system detailed. But here's a solution for windows XP, Vista and 7

Windows XP:
Open My Computer .
In the My Computer window, go to the following path
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\
Delete the folder called "kinoma"

Then go to the following path:

C:\Documents and Settings\"your user name"\Local Settings\Application Data \
Delete the folder called "kinoma"
Delete the "Sony Corporation" folder


Windows Vista® and Windows® 7 operating system operating systems:

Open Computer on your Desktop

Go to the following path:

C:\ProgramData\
Delete the folder called "kinoma"

Now go to this path:
C:\Users\"your username"\AppData folder\Local\
Delete the folder called "kinoma"
Delete the folder called "Sony Corporation"


GoodLuck!

I have a sony vaio vgn-sz491n. i have loaded windows 7 professional, 64bit onto it. in the device manager, it shows that a driver for a mass storage controller is missing. where can i find this...


Most likely missing a driver for SD/MC card reader
The problem is that Sony doesnt offer drivers for 64-bit windows so the other 32-bit drivers will not be compatible.
You have the options to install the windows versions supported by sony from esupport.sony.com (Vista or XP)
Or try installing windows 7 32-bit and installing the missing drivers from esupport (Vista section) as usually they are compatible.
If the driver is still missing you will need to update the driver from device manager (previously installed from esupport) and then select to browse or select a location, which will be %temp% or what is the same the temp folder for your account C\users\your_user_name\appdata\temp. This folder is usually hidden but it will work if you just type %temp%

Has this happened to you before? If you access the Reader Store from your regular Internet Explorer can you access it? If that is the case, try downloading the Reader Library software once again.
