How do I get Collection/Series data on SD card on PRS-505

Hi

How do I get Collection/Series data on SD card on PRS-505. I have all the right data in my library but when I download it to the device none is shown?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Thanks

Not quite sure what you mean. Are you using calibre to send the books to the device or are you just drag'n'drop'n onto the device? If you don't use calibre to send the books, then the collections metadata doesn't come up on the device.

Make sure you have updated the firmware of the 505 to the latest available. IIRC, the earliest 505 firmware didn't support collections on SD cards

With the PRS-500 you only got collections recognized if sent to the internal memory. I did not think the PRS-505 had this limitation, but it might be worth checking?

Sorry, when you are sending the books to the 505 are you using the "send books to device/card" or are you using the "save collection to disk" option? If you are using the save to disk option, I don't think the metadata gets sent properly. If you are sending to device and not to disk, then I suggest reformatting the SD card and then sending the books to the reader using the "send to device" option from within calibre. After, see if the metadata is on the books when looking at your library on the SD card from within calibre. The 505 definitely can see the collection and series metadata when the books are on SD.

Hi All,

Still no joy. Have formatted the SD card I can see the books but none of the collection data? I have even upgraded the version of calibre.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

How are you sending the books to the SD Card? Are you using the Send to Card button in Calibre?

Not sure what's going on helliaff. Sounds atypical and weird. Where are you located? I would suggest meeting up with someone physically to try and troubleshoot this.

That's weird. Makes me wonder if your firmware is old. Glad to hear you got it sorted though.
