all book disappear!!!

HI.
Last night I came across a problem.I transfered a txt book to a epub one and then sent it to my T1 using calibre.It went smoothly.And I could read it on my T1.But after several transformations,all the books in my T1 disappear while the books did exist in the T1.How weird it was!!!

I tried to restore factory settings but I found that it made no sense.I cannot find any books that have copied into my T1.

How can I do?

You looked into the files on the T1 using Windows Explorer, and there were no book files there?

If you can find your books that way, perhaps delete that book that you converted from the .txt format.

I can find all the books on the T1 using Windows Explorer.But the problem is that I cannot read books on the T1 for there is no any books displayed on the screen.

How did you send them to the T1?

Did you select the ePubs and select "Send to Device" then "Main Memory" or did you "Save to Disk" and send it to the T1 drive?

If you chose "Send to Device" it should recognize them. I don't think it will if you "Save to Disk" because, IIRC, the Sony's won't recognize regular files.

I selected “ Send to Deveice”.Not only the epubs,but also all the formats including txts and pdfs cannot display on the device.But they actually exist in the device.I can find them through PC.
Why restore factory settings cannot solve the prolem?What else can I do? thx...

If the files are in the right format, and in the right place, then I'm not sure why the T1 wouldn't be able to see them. Sorry I couldn't help more.

I believe that deleting the database on the T1 will force the T1 to build a new one and all of your books will be back. Get a second opinion though.
