Just wanted to add that on the calibre under the device option it lists all the books that were on the ipad already and it shows the book that i was trying to transfer on it as well. but the book is not on the ipad in ibooks.

Either use the 'Connect to iTunes' method to transfer content to your iPad, or create a ticket and attach a debug log from starting calibre until the problem occurs. You can find instructions on creating a ticket in the 'If you have problems' section of the Calibre +iDevices: Start here sticky.

A small number of users are unable to reliably transfer content using the direct connection method, as I mentioned in the first post in this thread. You might also look at using calibre's content server to add books to your iPad.

Transferring books results in an connection error but the books actually transferred. Also calibre then say they are not on my iPad when they are.

When there is no error the cover is sometimes not transferred.

IPad 3 (32GB from the uk).

Running OS X 10.8.2 (12C3006)
MacBook Pro Retina, Mid 2012
2.3 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB RAM

Ipad 2 and Kindle

If I set Calibre up for the Ipad 2 conversion to use Itunes, will I still be able to download to my Kindle as well? Some items I want on my Ipad and some I want on my Kindle...

Using calibre to transfer books to a connected iDevice sends them to iTunes or iBooks (ePubs and PDFs). If you want to send books to Kindle for iOS, you need to drag the books from calibre's library to the Kindle for iOS document sharing folder in iTunes.

If you're talking about a hardware Kindle, there's no conflict between sending books to the two different devices. You can only have one connected at a time, but you can send whatever books you want to either device, as long as you have the appropriate formats available.

Installed but now I get "Error communicating with device"

In iTunes, I've cleared the "Sync with this iPhone over Wi-Fi" option and checked "Manually manage music and videos".
When I launch Calibre it finds my device (iPhone 4 with iOS 6.1.3).
When I click "Show books in the main memory of the device" it shows sensible information.
However, when I right click on a book in my library and "send to device" I get the following:
Code:
calibre, version 0.9.24
ERROR: Error: Error communicating with device

(-2147352567, 'Exception occurred.', (0, None, None, None, 0, -2147418113), None)

Traceback (most recent call last):

After I close the error window, "Show books in the main memory of the device" includes the book that failed to copy as if it were successful (but it's not showing in iBooks).

Could this plugin be adapted to allow it to talk to apps that allow sideloading of eBooks via iTunes such as Marvin and Bluefire Reader?

I'm in the early stages of exploring this. It would be an independent driver per reader app, not an all-in-one driver.

Create a ticket as described in the 'Start here' sticky, including the full debug log. You can also use the 'connect to iTunes' method to avoid the problem in the meantime.

Looks like something is blocking access to temporary files that Calibre creates as part of the process. Try disabling your A/V software (just for the test)

I tried to upload a book to my iPad 1, but got following error messages.

Quote:

But if I tried again immediately, the upload was successful.

And whenever I tried to remove a book from iPad, I always got following error messages.

My OS is Windows 7 64bit, and installed Calibre 0.9.30 64bit. I also tried 32bit, but got same result.

I cannot open an bug ticket, because Calibre cannot work in debug mode for unknown reason.

To run calibre in debug mode, try opening the command window in Administrator mode, then typing 'calibre-debug -g'.

You can also create a ticket using the information you posted, including the OS and iDevice you're using.

I tried the command, but the iTunes windows flashed once, and then the pulgin cannot identify my device as usual.
