Kobo software doesnt show all library

The Kobo software on windows 7 is only showing 6 of my books, 5 of the free ones and 1 purchase. I have 100 free and 1 purchase. Am I missing a setting to display all books that are on my kobo?

Thanks

Drew

Are you sure you are not in "I'm reading" mode?

The full 100 free books have never shown on the Kobo software - there are only ever 5 of those that are visible on the Kobo desktop application.
The free books show up on your Kobo but only if you have the DISPLAY setting set to show ALL books or show PRE LOADED (free) books. If you choose MY books only your purchased books are visible.

Yup, that's correct. The kobo device comes with 100 free books. The desktop application on your computer comes with 5 free books. As the sync is only one-way (desktop to kobo), you'll never see the 100 on your desktop.

Is it possible to remove the five free books that show up in the desktop app?

Yup, but it requires some fiddling with the app. The application directories should have 2 copies of Kobo.sqlite - one is the default with the 5 free books, and the other is your live database. Rename or move both out of the way and the application will start with a blank database and then re-update your library with just your purchases.

On my Mac the paths are:
/Applications/Borders Desktop.app/Kobo/Kobo.sqlite (default)

/Users/jkarp/Library/Application Support/Borders Desktop/Borders Desktop Desktop Edition/Kobo.sqlite (live)

3d0g, if you don't mind me asking, but how do you find the kobo sqlite on a Mac - I'm afraid I don't know much about the finer computer stuff. I'd like to get rid of the free stuff on the desktop too, but I'm not sure how.

Thanks.
