The attached version of the Calibre plug-in hopefully fixes the problems seen where it fails to generate the file.

Thank you. Where exactly do I have to copy the generated file? I tried adding it in the author folder but even if X-Ray was not greyed out anymore, I get "No X-Ray available for this book" or something like that.

Your Kindle should have folders with names ending in ".sdr". You paste the generated files in their corresponding folders.

Okay, so I did that, but I get the same error, though the X-Ray file has ~114KB. Maybe it doesn't work for all the books? I tried to get it for A Game of Thrones...

I tried it on a few books, and it didn't work for one either. Sorry can't help you out, today's the first time I've tried the plugin too

It had never worked for any of my books, but this latest plugin for calibre works for me on a book that wasn't working. If you see what I mean.

Are you using the Calibre plugin? What are the urls you're using for shelfari and wikipedia? I'm grasping at straws here, clearly.

OK, I can see some potential issues with Shelfari's information for Game of Thrones which might cause problems. I'll try and take another look in the next few days.

Here's something which might help with the "Games of Thrones" issues. It's a bit crude but it's just intended as a quick fix for now. Probably best to avoid Wikipedia data and just use Shelfari for now.

I can confirm it now works. Thanks a lot

Great news.

If anyone's feeling brave, I've attached a new version which should (in theory) work a bit better. For example, on Game of Thrones, the previous version would have thrown away quote marks in names like: Eddard "Ned" Stark, or in descriptions like "Lady of Winterfell" - Wife of Lord Eddard Stark.

This new version should do a bit better, but I don't know whether the Kindle will accept the format I'm producing.

Feedback welcome.
