crashed sony PRs 650 afer using plugin
I put a retail epub into calibre, then used the plugin only to strip out ADOBE files & links i.e. ticked only those 2 boxes. The output looked fine in calibre & in sigil but when opened on Sony reader, it caused reader to crash & restart. No error message ( no invalid page error) - just white screen, couple of seconds delay then restart is observed
I am wondering why - I scrolled through this thread but saw no obvious explanation. it is time consuming to debug as it needs a physical connect device, send to device, eject... sequence.
I can work around it, so I am really just flagging this out of curiosity
I have checked
1. the unaltered retail epub opens OK on Sony reader.
2 the tweaked epub is now also OK after doing a calibre epub to epub convert (after stripping the adobe stuff.)
I also observe that this epub has an embedded set of charis fonts - dunno if that is relevant
I am left wondering what the plug-in could have done, or what I could accidentally done to cause the fail on Sony. I did what I usually do, which was to strip unwanted TOC, dedication, blurb... pages before using the plug-in, but that is usually harmless
