I just finished updating my Calibre version to 0.9.1 and my Kobo Touch to 2.0 (2.1 not yet offered unfortunately), and I have a question about preserving reading position in books.
Before the 0.9.1 update I was on 0.8.64, and Calibre would always report a Database Error when connecting to the KT, and it would not list the KT contents. But after a restart it would in fact list the books on the KT and allow books to be transferred to main memory. After the update to 0.9.1, the Database Error no longer appeared (new driver I guess), and I was able to identify all the books on the KT which were not already in my Calibre library and transfer them before doing a Factory Reset and update on the KT.
I thought Calibre would preserve my current position in the epub book I was reading on the KT after this backup and update, but it doesn't. I can't remember if I've ever tried that before, so maybe I'm wrong. Is it supposed to?
