Hi Jimswings,This just indicates that the ebook reader is still authorized to the previous user. Luckily, you are able to de-authorize it so it will erase all of the previous user's information and you'll be able to authorize it for your use. I've provided the steps below to de-authorize - hope this helps (this is done via the Sony eReader Store when connected via USB). Once complete, you can then go through the steps of authorizing your reader to you and transfer books!

To de-authorize the Reader device If you provide the Reader device to another person, you need to de-authorize it from your account.
  1. Turn on the Reader device, then connect the Reader device to your computer using the supplied USB cable. "Reader" appears in the Source view.
  2. Click "eBook Store" in the Source view. The View area is switched to the Store view.
  3. Click "My Account," then follow the store instructions to de-authorize the Reader device.

DI've broken my PRS600 and just bought PRS650. How do I deregister my 600 and register my 650 so I can download pre purchased books from my Reader Library.


Hi,

To deauthorize the PRS600 it must be connected to the computer, I understand that the reader broke, so the only option will be to contact Sony to remove the device.

To authorize your new PRS650 just connect the unit to the computer and sign in to your account, you will be prompted to a message that says that a new device have been detected, now its the time to click th "Authorize" button

=)

GoofLuck!

I cannot get the books to transfer from the E-reader Library to E-reader


I was having the same problem, here is the solution!!! Apparently there were some updates made by Adobe that needed Sony e-readers to re-authorize their accounts. Not convenient, I know, but here's the easiest way to fix it.
  1. In your library, delete the new books that you imported since it stopped working (make sure you have them saved somewhere else or are accessible from the purchase store)
  2. Close out the Reader Library application and disconnect your e-reader.
  3. Re-connect your device via USB port to your computer (no waiting time needed).
  4. Go to the ebook store icon on the left-hand side > then in the ebook store page, select "sign-in"
  5. When you sign-in, you'll see a note indicating that your device is not authorized. Select "Authorize"
  6. Once you've selected this, go back to the Library screen.
  7. Import your files once again and then you should be able to drag and drop them back to your e-reader.

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

How do I authorise my ereader with a new apple


In order to authorize the Reader wit the Mac Computer, the Reader should be deauthorized from the other Computer. In order to deauthorize the Reader from the other Computer, the Reader should be connected to the Computer. However, when you will connect the Reader to the Mac Computer, it will prompt to deauthorize the Reader from the old Computer and authorize it with the Mac Computer (provided you have installed the Reader Library Software). If you didn't install the Reader Library Software, you can download it from the link: http://ebookstore.sony.com/download/ .. That should resolve the issue.

Have got a new computer (vista)and now cannot transfer books from my library to the sony reader


Since you're using a new Computer, it seems that the Reader isnot authorized with your account. Please authorize the Reader with your account. To authorize the Reader, just login to your Reader store account thrugh the Reader Library Software and then go to the "My Account"->"Manager Device". You will get an option to authorize the Reader. A message will appear that "we have detected an unauthorized device. would you like to authorize the Reader" something likje that (I cannot remember the exact message, however you will getr to know that) and you will get a "Authorize" button. Just click on it. After authorizing the Reader, you will be able to trasfer the books. All the best.
