Troubleshooting: Why doesn't GuteBook find or download my requested book?

Etext-No.'s below 10,000 are sometimes problematic as many of the earlier etext no.'s don't follow the current/normal filenaming pattern of http://www.gutenberg.org/files/EXTEXTNO/EXTEXTNO-h.zip.

Let's say you've entered the number 7471 as the book listed on PG (it's a collection of short stories by P. G. Wodehouse).

But GuteBook fails to find, download and convert the file. It's nothing you've done wrong, it's just that this ebook doesn't follow the normal filename pattern and needs to be overridden by placing the following link in the Input File box: http://www.gutenberg.org/dirs/etext05/2left10.zip. Just so that you know, I got that link from the Gutenberg ebook page for Etext-No. 7471 and copying the link to the .zip text (or html) version.

Also, since that ebook is just available as text, you will need GutenMark (GUItenMark) installed and selected on the first page (see attached GUI screenshot). This ebook needs to be converted internally to html using GutenMark so that GuteBook can produce an ebook version.

Try it again, as before, but just override the Input File, in this case.

Happy Reading!

p.s. thanks go out to locomouse for your continual use and exploration of this program!
