Changing Deault Folder

My Kindle automatically creates new folders for e-books in my documents folder, but I would like to switch that to be a special e-books folder. How would I go about doing that?

Is this a calibre issue, or a Kindle-specific issue? It looks like a Kindle issue to me, in which case it should probably be moved to the Kindle section. Or, if it's a problem with where calibre creates its private folder for storing the Kindle's ebooks, you should let people know that so they don't say "oh, that's a Kindle thing and I have a Sony" and pass over without answering.

Ok, let me ask my own request then and specify it a bit more.

Calibre saves the books in a specific folder on the Sony: \database\media\books

But I want those books to be saved in the folder \ebooks. Can I change that?

No, not when you use send to device. My understanding is that putting books in \database\media\books is required by at least some Sony models.

You can use connect to folder and store books wherever you want, but collections won't work for these books.

With collections you mean the automatic generation of collections?

I mean calibre-managed collections of any kind, manual or automatic. The folder device doesn't do collections.

I'm still very new at this collection thing... I only noticed, that when I tried to add my books to my Sony, I suddenly had about a million collections (or so it seemed), while I originally had only 2... If you mean those collections, I can do without them...

It you don't want collections built from tags and/or series when you send a book, you must change the settings in device customization.

See this entry in the FAQ for more information.

In reality on the Sony, I can see one not wanting collections built from tags (particularily if you have a lot of them). However those built from series are very useful for finding related books and also knowing what order they are in the series.

Hmm, I never looked in the plugin settings...

I have other ways of doing that. Not all my devices support collections or even meta data.

calibre has a preferences screen where you can try setting that, but Sony hardware may not like it!

NB it's in send to device preferences

PS Kindle itself does not create subfolders - anything you get from amazon via wireless goes into the root documents folder.

That preference affects what comes after the built-in path. It doesn't override it.
