Hows come if I convert a TXT file to FB2 on Calibre, EZ Reader won't read it? :(

FB2 seems to have the most options and is is the most readable. Bummer it isn't working....

That does seem strange. I have used FB2 a lot on my BeBook, which is also a Hanlin V3 clone like the EZReader. The one difference is that I create my FB2 books in Book Designer instead of Calibre, because I like it's WYSIWYG editing.

Have you tried any other fb2 books? Here is one I did of King Solomons Mines (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=48500). See if it will work on your Pro it works fine with my EZ-Reader and the OEM firmware.

Wow, I really like the formatting applied to that book! It works fine on my EZR Pocket Pro. :thanks:

Seems to be working now... I just had to tweak the Calibre settings a bit....

What was your tweak? I tried making an FB2 from a PRC and my PP wouldn't read it either. I just gave up on FB2 & PP rather than pursuing a tweak.

Oh dear! Now I need to remember?

Let me look....

Under conversion preferences....

And then the structure detection tab....

UNtick all the boxes and set chapter mark to BOTH. Set FB2 output to NOT have inline TOC.

Errr.....well...it DID work for me. Let me know if it works for y'all? *Blink*
