Thanks, I'll take a look at it and try. (Haven't done any scripting in a while... That ought to be fun.)

If anybody succeeds before me, please let me know ^^

EDIT: I understand the scripting you did, and see the changes I have to make. Just one minor problem though... How do I run the freaking script? xD

Scrap that, I'm lost, I thought I had it.

Could anyone explain me step by step how to do it? I'd be most thankfull...

EDIT: Also, I'm on Windows 7, if that helps...

Hmmmm, I wonder if someone could/would take Kerenon's script, tweak it and turn into a cross-platform plugin for Calibre and then add it to a certain set of tools.

@Daffy, he's guiding me through the process right now, when we're done, I'm gonna post the script here for Windows. Perhaps that could help.

I don't really know anything about the plug-in system of calibre, but I'll take a look.

Silly question, I've read through the whole thread but my brain seems to be too stupid to take it in but if I modify a book as described in this thread with an asin number, plus the other relevant data, can I get that book onto an iPhone?

I'm asking because I have a lot of books that I picked up outside Amazon that I put on my Kindle via USB but sometimes it would be great to continue reading on my iPhone. I can pull the official Amazon books down via the Kindle app but I haven't found a way yet to get non-amazon titles on it.

Will the process being discussed in the previous posts enable this?

Thanks a lot

I was throwing out a not so subtle hint to certain other members of MR who can do this. If you can turn it into a plugin yourself, so much the better.

@aproudlove, yes, that's what we're trying to do. I haven't had the chance to test this yet on my family's iPad (I'm in the middle of my mid-terms, I shouldn't even be on this forum ^^) but I think it should work.

Ammm... actually no. You cannot transfer the books themselves using this method.

You know, I was trying to experiment with this trick using my iPod Touch. It can be done if you can get access to the file system of the iWhatever. In my case, I'm on Win7 and found a pay program called TouchCopy 09, that gave me that ability (I see now they have TouchDrive which my work better). I only used the trial version of the software and it took a while to hunt through the files to find where the K4iPhone app stores the books. The trail version wouldn't actually let me add the books but I think it would work.

There may be free software ways to do this, if you or anyone finds some, please post and share.

What do you mean?

If you add the ASIN on the books on your hard drive, and THEN sync them to all your devices (WP7, Android, iOS, K4PC), it "should" sync them accross all of them.

(That's what I'm trying to do)

EDIT: Also, I'm trying to suspect it would be better for Android and iOS if we could automaticaly fetch the ASIN from amazon.Com, as it would provide the cover as well. I could manage to do that given enough time (I'm more familiar with HTML than Calibre though), but I don't actually have the time to do so. Perhaps this should be moved to the Calibre section?

EDIT2 @ Daffy, there is an app called iPhoneExplorer for your PC that lets you add books on the iShit (sorry, my tongue slipped xD)

In my understanding you cannot sync the prc/mobi files. Only the "Furthest Point Read" mark. So if you start reading on your kindle, and reach location 1234, then if you open K4PC, it asks you if you want to jump to loc 1234.
