The folder reads "no books" in the collection. What happened here and how can I get this fixed?
I am by no means an expert, but I find that if I let my reader near Sony's useless piece of crap software it deletes all the collections I painstakingly created with Calibre. The only solution I found is to delete everything on the reader and then export it again via Calibre -- this fixes my collections. The key is to never, ever have your reader plugged in when you open UselessPieceOfCrap^WSony Reader software. Change the name of the program so it can't automatically open when you plug in your reader.
I bought a few books from the Sony Store because I had a gift card -- I downloaded them to my computer, stripped the DRM from the epub and then put them on my reader via Calibre.
