Hey I just installed Calibre to get used to it before my P360 arrives, but on the program's device lis I can't see Pocketbook 360 as an option, so, what settings do you use for calibre to convert books for the little one? Format, margins, etc...

The Cybook Opus is in the format options.

Hardwarewise, both devices are virtually the same. So you can't go far wrong by using that!

Formatwise, you may choose between Mobi, FB2 or ePub, whatever you prefer! Maybe make all three and find out what you like best!

You can also choose PDF or PDB (PalmDoc).

PDB: You should know, however, that PDB is in essence only glorified text, so not a lot of formatiing on those!

Not exactly calibre related, but whats the best place to buy ebooks for PB360? I already found books I want on inkmesh search:

http://inkmesh.com/ebooks/first-lords-fury-jim-butcher-ebook/?qs=first+lord%27s+fury

But B&N doesn't sells to my country, Sony Reader Store depends on SOny software (and I think they don't sell to Brazil, either), the last chance is ADE on books on board.

Anyone knows other search sites or a good ebook store that sells internationally and with a reasonable price? Also, can ADE (PDF?) be converted to other formats?

To be honest I am kinda lost. Fictionwise only has MOBI and eReader formats, both with DRM.
I converted a eReader (pdb) to HTML but it lost all formatting like paragraphs (dialogue text is the same appearance, and calibre/pocketbook apparently doesn't like any of the avaiable formats.

You could try libri.de

www.coolerbooks.com sells DRMed books! BAEN is selling tons of DRM free ePubs with some hundred free ones thrown in. Ebooks.com should be fine, too! Fictionwise has also a large (very large) collection of multiple format books, with ePub being one of the formats!

At the moment I am more concerned with stores that don't sell to Brazil than with stores that sell DRM'ed ebooks. I can live with DRM'ed epub I think.

My PB360 is here!

Calibre finds it as Cool_er. How can I make calibre send FB2 and not epub to the device?

It being detected as a Cool_er is a bug. Open a ticket (http://bugs.calibre-ebook.com/query) and include the OS you're using as well as the output of:

calibre-debug -d

Once with the device connected and once without. I will look into fixing this issue. Oh and assign the bug to me. Or if you can't use the forum to send me an email with the bug number.

It seems you can't send FB2 to a device yet. Just use the copy&paste in the meantime. I'm sure Kovid or user_none will fix that!

Personally I like to use Save To Disk with Calibre since it lets you customize the directory structure and filename of the ebook.

Breaks on chapter change and empty newlines, I dont see them in fb2 or epub, is that correct?

epub: New lines and breaks are not yet shown in fbreader, but shown in Adobe Viewer

fb2: Correct
