thank, I will fight with this after updating the Glo HD !

Unhappy No KEPUB format option...

[SOLVED - problem between chair and ebook reader - see below]

Quick question (couldn't find an answer when searching here): I installed the Touch Extended, KePub Metadata reader & writer drivers and disabled the "standard" KoboTouch driver in Calibre 2.31.0, and restarted as per the instructions.

When I plug in the Kobo Glo HD and select Device > Configure This Device, KEPUB does appear ticked at the top of the list (and the options panel is definitely the one from Touch Extended, not from the standard driver).

The problem is when I send books from the library, KEPUB doesn't appear when sending specific format.

Solution: The list is of SOURCE formats in the library, not targets DUH! When I send the EPUB it does get to the Glo as .kepub.epub.

Sorry about that!

No, that isn't quite correct. The list is the list of formats supported by the device. The order is the preferred format. When you send a book to the device, calibre looks to see if the book has one of these formats and sends it. If the book has multiple formats, the highest on the list is sent. If listed format is found, it converts one of the others to a format in the list. I assume the conversion is to the first format in the list. And that format is added to the library.

The extended driver is a little different. It respects the list, but if an epub is sent, it converts that to kepub on the fly. And that could mean that calibre does a conversion to epub followed by the driver converting it to kepub.

That's what I would expect. If you try to send a MOBI file using the extended driver and no KePub exists, calibre will convert the MOBI to ePub and the driver week convert the ePub to KePub.
