Adding eBooks to the Sony Reader from OverDrive

Instructions for Windows
(click here for Mac instructions)

Adding ePUB and PDF books

In order to add ePub and PDF books to your Sony Reader device, you will need to install the Reader Library software to your computer.

Connect your device to the PC and go to My Computer. You will see a drive labeled SETTING. Double click SETTING and locate the file SETUP READER LIBRARY FOR PC. Follow the prompts to install the software on your computer.

If you do not have the Reader Library software on your device, you can download it for free from the Sony eBook website.

Download an eBook from the Overdrive website. Double clicking the file will cause Adobe Digital Editions to open. If you do not have Adobe Digital Editions, you can get it from the Adobe website. If you installed the Reader Library software, Adobe Digital Editions will prompt you to authorize the device. If Adobe Digital Editions doesn't ask you for authorization or your device does not show up in Library View, it is because Reader Library hasn't been installed.

Once your Reader has been authorized, click and drag your eBooks to your device, which is listed under the Bookshelf menu in Library view.

Disconnect your device from the PC and you're all set!
