I’m frustrated

Poor quality epubs or just incompatible with Sony reader?

Can epub books be reformatted to be readable on a sony reader?

When text runs off the side of the page it is very hard to make it viewable, changing font size and page orientation do not always work, as the badly formatted text reformats and still runs off the side in some cases. This is general page text formatting issues, not mono spaced example code (thats another headache altogether).

I was disapointed with the poor quality of some epubs I have purchased recently - is there any quality testing done on these?

Should I report problems against specific book titles?

  • Hi Les,
    I'm sorry that our ePubs aren't working so great on your Sony reader. We do have our eBook staff looking into this matter, ( and yes, they do quite a bit of quality testing on our eBooks!) There have been many issues with the Sony reader in the past not working well with our ePub formats,

    I'm not sure if they would be able to be reformatted just to work on the Sony reader, but our eBook team would be able to make that determination.
    Which model of Sony reader and eBook reader app are you using, and which titles aren't displaying correctly?

    Cheers,
    Tai H.
