Mememememe didn't transfer an .odt file to the eReader, but an ePub file.

The sqlite database was only modified AFTER the problem occurred, and it fixed Mememememe's problem.

The Kobo desktop app only does one thing: allow you to buy books from Kobo/Borders and transfer them to the Kobo eReader.

If you're happy to puchase all your reading material that way then fine.

Some people want to use their Kobo eReader for reading ePubs purchased elsewhere, web pages converted to ePub using instapaper, txt files converted to ePub using Calibre, and any number of other things.

That's OK too. The Kobo is advertised as (and does) support the ePub standard. In this area however, the Kobo desktop app is sadly lacking, since it does not currently allow you to transfer non-Kobo ePubs to the Kobo eReader. Therefore people must use other methods to transfer their reading material to the Kobo eReader.

If someone encounters problems with this process they ask a question here, and hopefully (as in this case) a forum member can offer a solution. I don't think there is any need to chastise someone for asking for help, especially when they did nothing wrong to begin with!
