But that's not Sony's fault.
Another (silly) issue I had was losing authorization on a library book which I had checked out (Adobe digital editions). Something seems to deauthorize it at random. Haven't worked out what yet. Moving it around, possibly.
You want to be careful with the Sync options so you understand what it's doing, as you may end up with too many copies filling up the memories of the device and SD card.
One thing, an 8GB card is plenty - Flash seems to have gotten expensive unless you are lucky. And it refused to use the 32GB card I have (16GB is ok).
Strongly recommend one of the rubber sheaths to stop it getting scratches on the metal case. The unit is waaaay too pretty for that.

Amazon->Epub, you need some help, but it exists. Basically you get Kindle-for-Whatever (PC,Mac,Ipad) and then convert it.
The Sony's own software works, but so does an open software called Calibre, which was actually written FOR the Sony (and recognizes both the Sony's slots as well). 350MB is a fair bit (the native memory) until you break down and want to put music (MP3, sigh) in there too. So a card is nice.

Just one word of advice (this required hours of shouting on the phone to divine this information). When you sign up for Reader (the Sony Store) you make a password. THIS PASSWORD IS ALSO YOUR ADOBE PASSWORD. If you also sign up for an account by going to the adobe web site, everything goes to r*tsh*t and you will have to beg Adobe on bended knees to merge the two accounts or delete one of them and set the password to something known so you can change it to match the one for the reader store.
If you did as I did, the two password thing gets you books which simply expire randomly, and an application on the PC that spends its whole time trying to validate your DRM. This actually brought my laptop crashing to halt effectively. Maybe that's what's happening to you.
