Can sony Ebook Software be Installed onto a Hanlon Reader?

Posted by on

  • Kenneth Watters May 10, 2010

    By Dissapointing I did not mean any reflection on you just that I was hoping that my Ebook could have Sony reader installed and it seems from your advise this could not be done. Sorry if I worded it badly.ken

  • Kenneth Watters May 10, 2010

    The Reader reads PDF OK but the print is too small and to increase the size I need to use reflow.
    This works great but after ten pages it steps back ten pages over and over again. I then need to use the go to page to step past the tenth page and it is a pain in the butt,
    I can use the landscape mode and choose a larger font.
    I can read the same book on my Laptop using Sony Ebook readwe vand it reads perfectly. Ken

Only if the reader accepts other programs ..which I do not think is the case...anyway if it does...accepts and has the space for external programs ..probably it has on the manufacturer site the programs that can be downloaded and installed into it ..just like a ipod or mobile phone..
the possibility to install and run programs into a device is limited by the operating system that runs the device ..and the operating system that the program was built for ...

    It ok Ken ...I was just frustrated cause I take this free solutions only if I know how to advice for sure ..and expect in return maximum rate...cause this helps my status ...and so in my payed solution access ...You wasn't to blame and it is not such a big deal after all...I was just frustrated cause I always try to help and people in their ignorance or just because they do not understand or just to seam wise....rate like .......and even if the help I provide is free..they do not appreciate my time and expertise..

    By the way ..if you need the Sony Ebook software installed just to be able to read certain files...you can always convert the files to be read by the reader's own software ..just look on google for that kinda file converter ..make them in a format readable in the reader you have and that s all you need..

I bought used with books down loaded already can I somehow transfer them to a disc to save on My computer


One "issue" with books purchased through the Sony ebookstore, is that they are unable to be transferred from the library onto your computer. If the books are already in your Sony software or Reader Library, the only way you'd be able to get them to your computer without using Sony software is to download them again from the source. Another option you may want to look into is Calibre - they have an unique ebook library platform that may help guide you through a way to do this, outside of Sony's software.

I downloaded some ebooks from waterstones to my pc with no problems,but when i transferred them to my ereader the books are blocked under copyright,how do i register my ereader with my pc, regards


To transfer books from a computer to the Reader, you must authorize the Reader to your account. Authorization links your Reader to your eBook Store account, allowing books purchased from the eBook Store to be transferred to the authorized Reader. You can authorize up to six devices to a single account.
  1. Launch the Reader (eBook) Library software.
  2. Log in to your eBook Store account.
  3. Turn on the Reader. NOTE: For best results, we recommend that the Reader be fully charged before starting the authorization process.
  4. Connect the Reader to the computer.
  5. In the eBook Store pane, click My account .
  6. On the Account Management page, under My Authorized Devices , click Manage Devices .
  7. On the Manage Device page, under We have detected the following attached Devices: , click the Authorize this device button.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy Holidays!

Thanks, Joe
