Perhaps it was related to just using the SD card without Calibre. this time, i put in a blank SD card and put all the sideloaded books in through Calibre - perhaps its a database thing....
What happened is unlikely to be related to using calibre. The Kobo Touch/Glo/Minii driver for calibre hardly touches the database on the device when it puts the book onto the device. The only touches are to clean some records that might be left over from the book being on there previously (only because of previous firmware versions) and the shelves if you are using them.

The only other thing that calibre does is to update the metadata in the books after the copy. The only reason this could help is if you had books with corrupted metadata and this was fixed. But corrupt metadata would cause problems when the device processed the books the first time it saw them.

The first time you did this, how did the books get to the SD card? Was the card in the Glo or directly mounted in the computer? Had you ejected the card after the Glo had seen the books?
