I just tried out the updated plugin with my Kindle app. It worked like a charm. All of my sideloaded books showed up in DOCS, so I can't add them to any collections. Is there a way to get them to show up in BOOKS instead (either with a future plugin release or some other way via Calibre)? Ta!

I believe you can use the Quality Check plugin to change a MOBI from PDOC to EBOK.

I took a handful of MOBI files and reconverted them with the EBOK tag added and they still went to DOCS in the app. But now they will go into collections. So yay!

I did some googling and came across lots of articles like this one http://blog.the-ebook-reader.com/201...ebook-library/

That link refers to the Kindle Fire but the advice should be valid.

Is anyone else having issues with the Calibre to Mavin plug-in? First, when I connected my iPad, it didn't recognize the device.

The second time I connected, it saw the device but then generated a message indicating a Calibre timed out. Not sure what happened. I did just recently upgrade my iPad to the latest software of 7.0.2 - not sure if that has any bearing on the situation.

I will try and connect again and upload the error message. Thanks!

P.S. The below is what I am getting when trying to send books to the deivce

u'st_size'

Traceback (most recent call last):

@chilady1 - I have updated all of my iDevices to 7.0.2 and I have not experienced any problems connecting to Marvin.

Two things that I do after every iOS update that may or may not help you:

1) Do a hard restart of the device - hold the Home and Power buttons until the device shuts off and then you see the Apple logo, at which time you release the buttons.

2) Settings|General|Reset|Reset Network Settings. After the device restarts, you will need to re-enter Wifi passwords.

If you're still experiencing problems, create an issue with a debug log as described in the first post in this thread.

G

--edit-- I tried sending a book as you did and I'm not seeing the error you're seeing. I recommend the hard reset in step 1 as described above.

Thanks G - as a matter of fact, now that I think about, I don't remember re-booting the iPad after the update and I am positive that is the issue.

Thanks for the quick answer - it's something I should have thought about.

P.S. Everything working as it should - I didn't re-boot and that caused the problems.

So this is what I am getting when I try to connect my iPad to Calibre - I did re-boot the device after the upgrade to 7.0 and I also per GRiker's instructions re-set the network settings. After that, Calibre is still have issues with detecting the iPad and it is a hit or miss when I do connect.

@chilady1,
Is the error you're reporting occurring consistently? If so, please create a GitHub issue with a debug log.

There have been a few instances of crashes similar to the one you report filed at the GitHub issue tracking site. I have not been able to pinpoint the source of the problem, nor replicate it on any of my iDevices. Here are the steps that have been found to work for most of the people initially reporting similar problems. Each of these steps should be tried individually.
  1. Update to the most recent version of iTunes. If you have iOS7 on your iDevice, you need iTunes 11.1 or later.
  2. Update to the most recent version of calibre.
  3. Exit calibre. Disconnect the iDevice. Restart the computer. Reconnect the iDevice. Restart calibre.
  4. Exit calibre. With the iDevice connected, start iTunes, confirming that your iDevice is shown as a connected device. With iTunes running, start calibre.
  5. Exit calibre, disconnect the iDevice. Do a hard reset on the iDevice by pressing and holding the Home and Power buttons until the iDevice shuts off and you then see the Apple logo, then release the buttons. Reconnect the iDevice! restart calibre.
  6. Reinstall iTunes on your computer.
  7. Create a backup of your iDevice using iCloud or iTunes! then restore the installation of iOS7 on your iDevice.

Please report back if one of these steps resolves the problem for you.

G

completely uninstalling the iOS Reader plugin, the Annotations plugin (if still there), the Marvin Plugin and just reinstalling the iOS reader plugin and Marvin plugin not an option?

Hi, I can send an epub book to ibooks without a problem, but every time I try to send a PDF, calibre asks me, if I want to convert it. Both epub and pdf are checked the settings for the plugin. Any ideas?

Assuming that both EPUB and PDF are enabled in the plugin's configuration dialog, you should be able to send PDFs to iBooks.

Try restarting calibre. If you're still having a problem, create an issue at the GutHub issue tracker with a debug log as described in the first post in this thread.

I'm running into a bit of a problem with the Marvin XM plug in. I've assigned all my ebooks to collections in Calibre and want to export the collections to Marvin on my iPad. Unfortunately, when the export collections from Calibre selection is greyed out. I'm not sure what the issue is. I do have the collections assigned to a custom column call collection in the plugin setup. Anyone have any ideas? This is on a mac.

thanks

Figured it out. I needed to start the column name with a lower case rather than upper case, so Collection and Collections didn't work, but collections did.

Problems with OS X 10.9 (Mavericks)

There have been significant changes to the way that Apple manages ebooks under OS X 10.9 (Mavericks). Selecting iBooks as your preferred reader application while running calibre under OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) does not work.

At this time, I have no idea if or when this situation might be resolved.

As an alternative to iBooks, consider Marvin for ePubs, and GoodReader for PDFs, both supported by this plugin.

Marvin has a dedicated MobileRead forum.
