All right. KCM is dead. Kindelabra has no usable unzip/install/how to use instructions.
Finally realized that the originator of the below thread
on use of Calibre plugin intended for reader to intuit that if one pressed "show" next to "Spoiler" on first page of thread one got a set of hidden instructions.
I'm sorry but use of the word "spoiler" IN NO WAY clues someone into hidden instructions. I'll assume that this was done because there is some coding problem that means that to hide instructions the WORD "spoilers" must somehow be used instead of say ... INSTRUCTIONS as the ONLY way to not kluge up the thread with a long list of instructions but instead allow cherrypicking.
If so, then may I suggest editing the original post so as to SAY that clicking on 'show' next to 'spoiler' would provide the instructions?
Having found these however I'm afraid more problems ensue.
My original collections with hundreds of books were created using KCM. While many of the books were turned from pdf or lit into mobi via Calibre I promptly deleted them from Calibre library and many were not made via Calibre.
So right from the start, the FIRST instruction is "wait for the Kindle to fully connect (checkmarks against your books on the device will show up)."
I assume??? this means that WITHIN CALIBRE checkmarks will appear in a list CALIBRE has of your books. KINDLE just shows "IF you want to read..."
So my not hving books in Calibre right way makes this useless?
If not, how do I now get these books "into Calibre"?
