Book Details castrated

Mon, 01 May 2017 02:10:46 GMT

I noticed today that the page length / reading time estimate is gone. That's very unfortunate. Not one of the things I would throw a tantrum over, (Book format at least, is still there,),, but it's back to researching every book n Amazon to make sure I'm not buying an $8 short story.

Library size 'limits'

Mon, 01 May 2017 00:03:23 GMT

So this may not be anything new to some of you here, but I discovered that some books in my library are not showing up in my Voyage's 'ALL' view, which shows 1152 items when filtered on 'MY BOOKS'. I'm unable to see the first books I purchased back in 2009; they do not show up with Search, they don't show up in collections, and if I go to the Kindle Store listing it as button with VIEW IN LIBRARY instead of BUY. But it does not show up there. I have to go to Manage Your Content and Devices, and Send it to my Voyage from there, which 'works'. But when I remove this content, it shows Delete from Device instead of Remove from Device, and prompts 'are you sure?', as if it were not in the cloud, but side-loaded. I have plenty of available storage space. On my 8th gen Kindle, 1203 items appear (which seems to be a complete view). Both are running the latest firmware release (5.8.9). I got my Voyage after my 8th gen Kindle. So this is annoying. Has anybody run into this issue and had success in correcting it?

BN Nooks missing in Seattle

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 21:08:12 GMT

Went to two Seattle area BN stores which used to have predominant entrance-centric Nook mini-shops only to find them completely gone. A small Nook table was off to the side, but basically non-existent. Anyone know what's going on or had a similar experience?

How to access Highlights/Clippings.txt without access to Kindle?

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 16:44:06 GMT

Hello folks, Been lurking these forums once in a while, and I see that there's a lot of really clever e-reader geeks out here, so I hope you guys/gals could help me out with this one. I make a lot of highlights on my own documents (sideloaded as well as sent to my Kindle over email) when using my Kindle Paperwhite, which I then extract using the MyClippings.txt file after connecting the Kindle to my PC using USB. Unfortunately, my Kindle is no longer being recognized by any computer. I've tried everything from resetting, to buying new cables to using different computers, and after 2 hours of chats with Amazon support, they determined it's software issue that they could only fix if I sent it in, and I don't have any warranty. Now since I use Whispersync, I was thinking it should theoretically be possible to somehow get access to the MyClippings file wirelessly. The Kindle for Android app (somehow not the Kindle for PC app though) still shows documents on my kindle, plus the highlights, so the information is out there in cloud, right? I've been searching all over for a solution, but all I can find is people telling me to go to, which doesn't show document highlights, or to get the myclippings.txt file from my Kindle, which I can't access over USB anymore. Thank you for any ideas!

N96ML - Handwritting Notes

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 09:21:14 GMT

Dear all, I am a new user of a BOOX N96ML (just updated to 1.8.1; purchased from I have tried the pre-installed [Notes] app which is fairly good and smooth. But note that after long use, I ended loosing a couple of times multiple pages, I suppose is a memory issue. Nevertheless, I am interested for any experience getting something more advanced like [MS OneNote] to work on it. I have installed an older APK (v15+ that is compatible with Android V4.0.4), because I couldn't install any newer. Configuration and notebook opening works fine but final pages are "dark". I can type (not scribble), and changes sync both ways, but I cannot see any because note page is always dark (pitch black :D). Anyone successful to make it work? thanks

FBReader update: hash vs filepath difficulties.

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 21:00:32 GMT

My main ebook reader on my android has recently updated its system, so that anytime a book is changed, it forces you to decide what to do with the book. As I am updating most of my library currently, it means I have to make these choices over and over. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a work around? I assume I can't force the program to accept the new hash and automatically attach it to the existing book. If I remove all books already on the phone and allow calibre to send them again, it will wipe all my bookmarks. Any ideas? Thanks for any help.

How Do You Work This Crazy Thing?

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 15:39:01 GMT

I own a hand-me-down eBookwise; my mother gave me hers when she bought a Nook several years ago. Recently, I’ve been wanting to use the thing to read the Oz series. But, I can’t for the life of me figure out how to get books on the thing? I’ve installed several things, and reset the reader. But whenever I plug the USB cable into my laptop, nothing happens. It doesn’t even give me an error code (neither the computer, nor the reader). I spent several hours pouring over my mom’s old files, hoping she left instructions, but found nothing. I know she used Calibre (which I downloaded) but it doesn’t seem to do anything. Help!

PW2 KUAL error

Sat, 29 Apr 2017 08:30:17 GMT

Hey guys, Slight noob here, apologies in advance as Im sure this has been answered before (I have searched and cannot find a solution). Ive been having a problem with KUAL on my UK PW2 (serial 9017 22) on 5.8.9. Originally downgraded using the factory image and jailbroken, and backdoor lock, KUAL and KOreader installed and running with no issues at that point after upgarde to 5.6 (I think). Got a letter pushed to the device from amazon saying FW outdated and would lose access to the ebook store, and using this quite often I decided to update AFTER researching if the JB persists. Of course looking at the jailbreak thread I found it does, so went ahead and updated to 5.8.9 Since then I CANNOT for the life of me get KUAL to work again; it just gives the popup "error while trying to open this item blah blah blah". Ive researching this, and cant find a whole pile of info, I assume its to do with MKK. I attempt to reinstall MKK yet I copy the install .bin to the root directory and go to "update" but update is greyed out and the .bin disappears. I have tried restarting etc to no avail. So any help getting this sorted would be much appreciated! cheers Doc

How to install dictionary on Energy Sistem Por HD

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 22:27:47 GMT

I have just received my first Energy Sistem Pro HD, my first Android reader. Totally impressed with the screen and the screen sensitivity. I can highlight or mark text so much easier than on Kobo Aura One. However, for some reasons, I cannot use its dictionary. I have followed their instruction ( to the letter. But the Dictionary app and on FBReader keep saying the the dictionary is empty, even though, I have put 3 dictionaries ( on the root folder as described in the manual. What did I do wrong? What did I miss? Can someone please help me? I don't really want to return this device, but the lack of dictionary function does annoy me a lot. Cheers!

Best way to move books purchased from Kobo into Calibre?

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 15:07:01 GMT

Is it better to download them to the device and then sync them over to Calibre, or is there a good way to download them directly to the computer and then move them over. The computer is a Linux box, so Kobo desktop app is not an option. Thanks!

Problems downloading books from Kobo.

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 09:27:35 GMT

I bought a book today from Kobo. I then normally go to "My Books" and download an epub with ADE DRM. This I can't do now. There was earlier an option something like "Show my library as organized before". This option has disappeared, so how do I now download my books? TIA.

What symbols can the Sony PRS-505 display?

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 12:03:53 GMT

I tried adding a book called InuYasha: The Final Act to my Sony PRS-505 using Calibre, but when I view the book title in the list of books on my device, it is renamed as InuYasha_ The Final Chapter. Is there a way to correct that? Besides A-Z, a-z, and 0-9, what symbols can the device display?

How to properly number books in a series in Calibre for a Sony PRS-505?

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 12:01:00 GMT

I have a Sony PRS-505 and am using Calibre to prepare the metadata. I am importing the files using regular expressions. The format is: - - - - - <chapter>.pdf. But Calibre cannot accept a value for "chapter". Most of the books are comic books, but since these files are too large, I split them by chapter, which makes them easier to read. So each chapter is a separate file. This means though that the titles are identical, e.g.: - InuYasha - InuYasha - InuYasha I need to set the metadata such that each of these are distinguishable. I don't want them to all appear with the same title. The number needs to appear. If I set the <series_index> to 1, 2, 3, etc. for each chapter, will this be visible in the PRS-505? Or must I add the numbering data to the <title> itself? <div class='clearbothFix'></div> </div><br /> <hr /><br /><div class="item"> <a href="" rel="nofollow" rel="nofollow">Enable fullscreen on Icarus E653 (Boyue) without root?</a><br /> <p>Thu, 27 Apr 2017 09:44:33 GMT</p> Hi everyone!
