UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc5 in position 38: ordinal not in range(128)
I've attached my metadata.calibre file (just change extension from txt)

I've no idea how to fix this one, I'm afraid - it's clearly a character set encoding issue but I just don't know Python (as I mentioned, this script is the first time I've ever seen Python code, much less written any), so I don't know why it can't convert your unicode symbols to utf-8.

Maybe someone who knows Python can address this one?

Checking for any books which are in collections but are no longer on the kindle.

    if asin != UserGuideAsin:
NameError: global name 'UserGuideAsin' is not defined
This is an easy one to resolve: Just add the line:

Code:
UserGuideAsin = ""
Somewhere near the top of the file (and outside any function definitions). The problem is that it's not found a Kindle user guide and there's no blank default set in the script for that value. My bad. But that'll fix it.


As a complete aside: I had a glance at your metadata file and noticed that you have a lot of azw files. As you're doubtless aware from the notes accompanying the script, it can't automatically put those files into collections for you.

At the very least, you should run the script with the "--nocleanupdeadfiles" command-line option, as otherwise it will remove any unidentified files from collections, which includes azw files (note - the books themselves will not be removed from the kindle, they just will not appear in collections).
