Yeh I am only adding books that I have finished editing to iTunes I would like to know what data they thing iTunes is editing when it's added to the library as I'm not certain it is at all. I locked the file and checked size etc and it added to iTunes fine, I'm tempted to just try writing a small plug in that uses Automator to add any new books into iTunes whilst keeping them in calibres folder structure.
Can anyone confirm that iTunes does or doesn't alter the original file when adding to iTunes?
