The content server gives "Error retrieving book details". What do I do?

Upgrade to calibre 0.9.2 or later.

I am a Sony user and I want my collections. What do I do?

First, check if the grouping and sorting features available in CC don’t already provide an alternate way to get the same information. If they do not, then you can enable collections for the Smartdevice driver in the same way you did for the Sony driver.

Go to the device preferences (in calibre, go to preferences -> plugins -> device plugins -> Smartdevice App Interface), and enter the lookup names for the columns for which you want collections. The Sony collections tweaks work here as well. Reconnect the device and your collections will appear under the group menu item “User Collections”.

Why does the sort menu disappear when I select User Collections?

Collections are sorted by calibre, and Calibre Companion must respect that order. Although it would be possible to add yet another sort type to the list, we thought that the need would be too rare to compensate for the extra confusion about what it means.

How do I add my custom columns to the Grouping drawer?

Calibre Companion supports grouping on calibre custom columns. To group on a custom column, add that column’s calibre lookup key (the word beginning with #, as in #genre) to Calibre Companion’s list of custom columns to show in the grouping drawer. You do this by clicking the menu button on your device (usually three dots), choosing "Settings", then choosing "Make groups for custom columns". Enter the names in the text box shown in the resulting dialog. Be sure to include the leading # character.

Note: it is not an error if a lookup name you enter does not actually exist in any books on your device. This can happen if you connect to multiple libraries that have differing custom column setups. That said, if you expect to see information when you click on a lookup name in the group menu but don't, check the spelling of the lookup key.

Note also that you can add calibre's date and pubdate lookup names to the group menu as pseudo custom columns. The date column will be grouped by yyyy-mm, and the pubdate column will be grouped by yyyy.

When you add or change the custom column lookup names, Calibre Companion must rebuild some information in the database. If you have a large number of books in Calibre Companion this process can take a few moments. You can see a progress indicator by checking the status bar.

How do I choose which formats calibre sends and where the books are stored?

Unlike most devices that calibre supports by cable, you control in the Calibre Companion which formats are to be sent along with their priority on the device. This helps if you have multiple devices for which you want to use a different list or different priority.

To set up the extensions, click the menu button on your device (usually three dots), choose "Settings".

ID:	100041
Next, scroll through the long list of extensions and check the ones you want calibre to be able to send to your device. Don’t try to order them at this point, it is easier to do in a second pass.

ID:	100042
After you have "checked" all the extensions you want to use, it is time to set their priority. This is easiest to do if you close and reopen the dialog, because all the checked extensions will be at the top. So press OK, then reopen the dialog. Now use the arrows to move the selected extensions up and down. The higher an extension, the higher its priority.

You can use this dialog to change the folders where extensions are stored. See the following image of the extensions dialog.

Views:	343
Size:	25.2 KB
ID:	100043
To change the default folder (the one used if no specific folder is chosen for an extension), open the extensions dialog and click where the "1" points. To change the folder for a specific extension, click below the arrows on that extensions line. Number "2" in the dialog image shows where you would click to change the folder for epubs. You will see a dialog that tells you where the files are currently stored. Click the "Change" button if you want to change it.

If, for example, you are changing the storage folder for mobi books to the folder used by Kindle for Android, scroll the list of folders until you see the "kindle" folder. Tap that folder to enter into it, then tap the "Use this folder" line at the top of the list.

In the Kindle for Android case, after having changed the storage folder, selecting K4A as the reader will start K4A at its home screen. It will import the books you have sent to Calibre Companion so you can read them. Please see this post for more information on integrating with Kindle for Android.

Using SD Cards
: Important: Starting in Android 4.4 (KitKat), because of a design choice by Google it is difficult for CC to use removable SD cards. See Using an SD card with Android 4.4 (Kitkat) for more information.

If you are using a version of Android less than 4.4 then you can change the folder that CC uses to an arbitrary folder visible on your SD card. To do this, click the "Change folder" button, enter the path that will contain the desired folder into the box, then tap the "Open" button. The screen will show the contents of that folder. You can navigate from there, creating folders as necessary and allowed by Android. For example, if you enter "/mnt" into the box then you will see all the folders inside /mnt. Probably one of the folders will be the SD card. Note: some devices do not allow writing to SD Cards. If your device is one of these, then CC cannot put books onto that card.

How do I use an SD card with Android 4.4 (Kitkat)?

Unfortunately, starting with Android 4.4 Google has made using SD cards very difficult. For a variety of reasons such as preventing one app from tampering with another app's data, the SD card has in effect become "read only" for all folders except for one specific folder per app. If you click here to do a google search for kitkat sd card support you'll find lots of posts discussing this change, and explaining the pros and cons of Google's decision.

The result: CC can write books only into on the SD card into a private files folder that gets deleted when you delete the associated app. Consequently a) there is only one folder on the SD card where CC can store your library, and b) that your library will be deleted from your SD card if you ever uninstall CC or cleared CC's data. To repeat: if you use Android 4.4 and put your library on an SD card, your books will be deleted if you uninstall CC. There is absolutely nothing we can do about this.

The name of an app's private folder is set by Android. For CC, that name is Android/data/com.multipie.calibreandroid/files

If you upgraded to KitKat and your library is in a no-longer-writable folder on the SD card, then there are three ways to recover:
  1. Assuming you accept the risk of your books being deleted, starting in CC 3.3.5 you can move your books to CC's private folder on the SD card. See the answer How do I change the folder on my device where the books are stored? for how to move your library. Use the "SD Card" button when selecting the folder (button only visible on Android 4.4+).
  2. You can move your library to your phone's internal memory. It will then work as before. See the answer How do I change the folder on my device where the books are stored? for how to move your library.
  3. You can root your device and remove the restriction. Not something we'd recommend or can support.
Option 1 also works to move your library from internal memory to your SD card, something you should do only if you accept that uninstalling CC or clearing its data will delete your books.

Important note for options 1 and 2: CC will be unable to delete the files from the old folder on the SD card. You must delete them yourself by putting the SD card into a card reader or using one of the few file manager apps that (currently) can manipulate SD cards.

If you are running a version of Android less than 4.4, you can still put your library in an arbitrary folder on an SD card, although you might not want to do that if your device is susceptible to being upgraded to KitKat. See the answer How do I change the folder on my device where the books are stored?. Using SD cards is explained at the end of the answer.

The following documents one user's experience with option 1, documenting the steps he followed:

You will need this info to manually clean up later. Tap on the default folder and get a dialog with a short summary of this thread. Click on the suggested folder name (not the Choose Folder button). The program will copy the existing books to the new folder. Make sure there is enough room on the sdcard for the copied books. It may take a while to copy. Once it is done you will get a error message for each of the books that it was not able to delete the old files. That's OK. At this point Calibre Companion will work normally. The old copy of the books are still on the sdcard. To free up the space you will need to delete the old books using other means. Either use a file manager that knows how to get past KitKat to the delete files on the sdcard or pull the sdcard and plug into a PC.
And another user's experience with adding an SD card to a new tablet:

It recreated the directory and then everything worked.

What does the Delete Passwords setting do?

You can tell calibre to require a password from the device when the device connects. If you do this, then CC will ask you for that password and remember it. Selecting Delete passwords will force CC to forget all remembered passwords.

How can I get books to autosync when Calibre Companion connects?

Try using the calibre Reading List plugin. To quote its description page, when a device is connected it can "Optionally sync each list to one or more devices, a folder or iTunes" and "Specify whether list sync should add only new items not on device, add all items every time, remove all items that are on the list, or replace all items on the device with the list". Because Calibre Companion acts like a device, all the features of Reading List are available.

How do calibre's and CC's dates relate?

Calibre maintains 3 dates in standard metadata: date, pubdate, and last modified. When you send books or metadata to CC, these dates are passed and stored unchanged. The first two, date and pubdate, are shown in book details as "Added to calibre" and "Pub date" respectively. Both of these dates can be added to the Group menu; see this post for details. The last modified date is not displayed, but is used to determine if CC's stored metadata needs to be refreshed. Any custom column dates are also passed to CC, stored unchanged, and displayed in book details. CC does not sort on any dates in custom columns, but they can be added to the Group menu.

In addition to the above, CC maintains two non-calibre dates: metadata last modified (called "Updated" in CC) and date last read (called "Last read" in CC). The first is set to "now" whenever calibre sends metadata to CC for the book in question. The second is set to "now" whenever a reader is launched for a book. CC displays and can sort on both these dates.

Why can CC open Mantano on EPUBs but not MOBIs?

CC can ask a reader to open a book format (EPUB, MOBI, etc) only if that reader advertises that it supports that format. For some reason Mantano advertises that it supports EPUB but does not advertise that it supports MOBI. Because of this probable oversight in Mantano, CC cannot open MOBI files using it. At this time the only solution is to use a different reader app for MOBI files such as Moon+, FBReader, or Cool Reader.

Why can't I install CC on Kindle android devices?

Recently Amazon allowed CC to be sold in their Kindle app store. However, some early Kindle devices run a version of Android that is not compatible with CC, and Amazon does not offer it to those devices.

How can I use the same file name for content server and wireless device connections?

There are two solutions to ensuring that file names for a book are the same on multiple devices regardless of the delivery path.

Solution 1

Tell calibre to use a template that reproduces (in almost all cases) the file name that CC generates. The template is
Code:
{title} - {authors:'re($, '[^-\w& ]', '_')'}
Enter this template by connecting as a wireless device, then in calibre right-click on the device button, choose "Configure this device", and pasting the template into the "Save template" box.

Two caveats: 1) the template generates the same file name as CC as long as the sum of the length of the authors and the title is less than approximately 180 characters. If the sum exceeds that value then both CC and calibre will shorten the file name. They use different methods for shortening, so the results will be different. 2) calibre could change some other unusual characters because they are illegal in some situations.

Solution 2

CC has an option to use calibre's book identifier (its Unique ID, or UUID) as the file name. If the option is checked, both CC and calibre will use the UUID as the file name, which is guaranteed to be the same value for a book no matter how it is delivered or if the title and author are changed.

Solution 2 overrides the template, so there is no reason to use both solutions 1 and 2 at the same time.

Note: Starting with calibre 0.9.15, sending a book to the device that calibre knows is already on the device will not create a new file. Instead it will overwrite the existing file, preventing having multiple copies of the book on the device. If you don't want this behavior, either delete the existing copy before sending the new one or change an option in calibre to disable the check if the file already exists. To change the option, connect as a wireless device, then in calibre right-click on the device button, choose "Configure this device", and uncheck the option "Replace books with same calibre identifier". Unfortunately, this change does not help if you want to have the same file name across multiple devices, no matter how the file arrived on the device. You might want this if you are using a reading app that is capable of syncing reading positions across devices, such as Moon+. Solution 2 works the best in this situation.

Sorting, grouping, and searching tips

CC's sort, group, and search functions are very capable, but it might not be obvious how to use all it can do.

First, what do we mean by "grouping"? These are functions to show you books and metadata (data about books) in an organized way. For example, you can easily find all the authors of books on your device. Same for series, tags, and publishers. Tap the "Group" menu on the top and select the view you want.

You can sort a list of books no matter how you got there. For example, assume you are looking at a list of books with some tag "Books I like" that you are seeing because you use the Group function. You can sort that list by series, author, or any other choice on the Sort menu.

However, what do you do if you want something a bit more complicated, such as to see a list of authors of books tagged with "Books I like"? This is where Search come in. Searching in CC produces a list of books that match the search criteria. You can then use grouping and sorting on that list. CC uses calibre's search syntax. Continuing the example, searching for tags:"=Books I like" will find all books with that tag. To see the authors of these books, group by Author. To see the series of these books, group by Series.

For simple searches, CC provides a shortcut that avoids the tedious typing. To search for a tag, first group by Tags and then navigate to that tag. Using the same example of "Books I like", when I first group by Tags I will see a list of first letters (unless you turned that off in Settings). Tap "B" and you will see tags beginning with B, which will include "Books I like". If you long-tap on "Books I like", a dialog will open asking you if you want to search for that tag, and if so do you want all books with the tag or all books without the tag. Make the choice you want, press OK, and the search is done. You can now group, sort, etc.

Note that when you search for a book with some tag, you may see other tags in the group list. This happens if the selected books have more than one tag.

Long tap works on any item displayed while grouping, including the first letters. You can long-tap on the first letter to all items that begin with that letter.

You can undo a long-tap search (or a search you entered) by tapping on the list header, the one saying that a search is active and how many books were found.

Several fields can be searched using greater than, less than, etc. Examples:
  • rating:>=3 will find all books with rating greater than or equal to 3
  • pubdate:<2000 will find books published before the year 2000.
  • date:<=2000-04 will find books with calibre's date field less than or equal to April 2000.
The permitted operators are < (less than), = (equal to), > (greater than), <= (less than or equal to), and >= (greater than or equal to). You can search for not equal to using "not ratiing:=2"

Another sorting tip: sorting by something then sorting by that something again will invert the sort. This lets you sort descending and ascending.

Can I group by calibre's date columns: date and pubdate?

You can group by these columns by adding their lookup names to the list of custom columns that are to be added to the group menu. The lookup names are pubdate (publication date) and date (calibre's "Date" column, usually the date you added the book to calibre). See How do I add my custom columns to the Group menu? for instructions on how to do this.

Once you have added the lookup names you wish to use, you will see them in the Group menu. Lets assume that you entered both date and pubdate. Tapping on date will give you groups based on year and month: yyyy-mm. Tapping on a year-month will give you all the books with that date. Tapping on pubdate gives you groups based only on year.

Why can't I install CC on Nook android devices?

News: as of early May 2103, the Nook HD and HD+ devices can purchase apps (and other stuff) from the Google Play store. This change makes it possible to obtain CC for these devices.

Some Nook devices run a version of Android that is too old to support CC. The device must be running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) or later.
