Question about Computers & Internet
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.

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.

You can use the driver from SONY website and run it in compatibility mode. To do this, right click on the program.exe and open the Properties menu, then navigate to the compatibility tab and select "Run this program in compatibility mode for... in the drop box pick windows XP..

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

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.
