I've been using libprs500 quite a bit, but then found out I couldn't use both it and sony connect to sync to the device.
As a result, all my beautifully covered books are now gone and I'm stuck with coverless versions instead. Is there a way to transfer the cover over? Or a program that can edit an LRF file once it's been made into one and add a cover (or alter ANY of the metadata, for that matter)?

Ah, didn't realize lbrprs500 also had different commandline programs as well... Thanks!
UPDATE: Works great, thanks!!!

Can you tell me what command you are using. I've been trying to add covers to some of my books that are already lrf and haven't figured it out. I fired up the command prompt and lrf-meta.exe. It shows the different commands available, but I'm not sure exactly which one to use to accomplish what you did. Thanks for any info.

I don't know if I can pm a user, so I'll bump this in hopes of Gideon seeing it.:2thumbsup

I'll take a look at it for you tomorrow... Being sick I'm not around my Mac that has a windows install and I use it for that sort of thing. But I'll be happy to look.

Okay... this is how you change the thumbnail.
I put everything (the lrf and the cover image) in the libprs500 folder.
Go to that directory from the command line and type the following
lrf-edit --thumbnail=<filename> <lrf>
so, for instane, if your image was called image.jpg and your lrf nytimes.lrf you'd have
lrf-edit --thumbnail=image.jpg nytimes.lrf
Hope this helps!

You don't need to put things in the libprs500 folder and the correct command is
lrf-meta.exe --thumbnail=filename myfile.lrf
And this will only change the thumbnail, not the cover.

Thanks to both of you for your help. I'm still trying to get it to work, but my windows machine can be a little much with 4 sata drives, 2 pata drives and sometimes 2 external drives on it. Is there any way to edit an .lrf file [ie remove/add pages] or does that have to be done on the original before converting it? Thank you again for the help and Kovid for the wonderful piece of software.
