For all the techies out there, this is what the "Hlts" record in the .RES directory (i.e filename "XWDY") looks like as a hex dump followed by reverse enginnering (decoding) of that data:
Code:
File: XWDY
Output by XVI32 - www.chmaas.handshake.de

Decoding Hlts record format:
============================
Offset
0000:  00 01        =  Start of Header (32 bytes)
       48 6C 74 73  =  Filetype "Hlts"
       00 00 00 00
       00 00 00 A0  =  offset to index after data records (160 bytes = 32 + 8 + 10 * 12 )
       00 00
       00 00 00 00
       00 00 00 00
       00 00 00 00
       00 00 00 00
       
0020:  00 00 00 01  =  Start of data record
       00 00 00 0A  =  10 highlites 
       
       66 73 65 6C    00 00 03 75    00 00 03 9B   =  "fsel" (66 73 65 6c), 00 00 start character position from beg of file, 00 00 stop character position
                                                      Results in 39 (923 - 885 + 1) characters starting with the 885th up to but not including the 923rd
                                                      i.e. the phrase "through the name under which he had been"
       66 73 65 6C    00 00 04 17    00 00 04 18   =  as above, but only highlites 2 characters starting with the 1047th character from the beginning of the file
                                                      i.e. the word "in"
0040:  66 73 65 6C    00 00 04 1A    00 00 04 1E   =  repeat above analysis!
       66 73 65 6C    00 00 04 20    00 00 04 21
       66 73 65 6C    00 00 04 23    00 00 04 26

                                                           =  constant ID (00 80), length of data record (128 bytes = 8 + 10 * 12), start of data record (after first 32 bytes header)

To learn more about your unit and the .imp format, try reading our mobileread wiki entires for IMP, EBookwise-1150 and eBook_Publisher for starters.

If some things still make no sense, ask in the Fictionwise forum for help!
thanks for your pointers!
it feels awesome! except for my card reader, which seems to be broken as i tried to read the sm card without success
i've already converted a pdf book to html and now i'm trying to put it in the card. is there a free alternative to the GEB eBook Librarian?

You can still use GEB Librarian (after the demo period), just don't have more than 3 ebooks in your ebook directory and it should transfer the .imp to your ebook reader.

However, GEBLibrarian will not help you getting the highlites from the SM card, so get that SM card reader fixed!

I am having problems with the .imp file was was created by sbtest.exe. I cannot get it to open with primopdf or utilizing the tool found at: http://www.ebooktechnologies.com/sup...r_download.htm.

The primopdf exe only opens a blank command window when used to open the .imp file. The publisher tool does nothing when I try to open the .imp file. My .imp file created with sbtest.exe is not an empty file- has 584kb. This is created from a RES file on my EBW 1150 that was simply copied onto my hard drive from the memory card.

If that .imp was a purchased ebook or was encrypted, then sbtest.exe would not be able to create a valid .imp. The eBook Publisher .imp viewer program will open any valid .imp, so you may have "confirmed" that your .res to .imp process created a malformed .imp.

You can confirm if any .imp ebook is encrypted by doing the following:
While at the eBookshelf screen, tap the "circled icon" containing a book beside the name of this ebook on your EBW1150 and look at the bottom of the pop-up screen near the bookshelf graphic to see if there is a picture of a lock. If there is then the ebook has been encrypted to be read only on your ebook reader and cannot be "unencrypted" or copied legibly onto your hard drive.
