Send books to SD

Hi,
After some trials, finally I have arrived to the conclusion that calibre is the best solution for me and my books :-)

I've tried to find something similar before posting, but not success.


The problem is that send books to my bebook is very slow, and sometimes the process freeze.

The solution I found is to export to disk, with the structure
tags(my genre)/author/all the books (without opf)
And then copy this structure to the SD using a cardreader.

In this way I can transfer all the books, no matter what format...

I've read somewere that is not possible use the process "send books to device" to write directly to a SD, because calibre consider that the SD is a generic "device"

But my idea is why no to "sign" the SD, from calibre or using a signature file that tells calibre which ebook is using the SD ???? Sure that writing using a cardreader is faster than writing to an old device...

Thanks

In order to use the Connect to folder option You most likely have to go to Preferences - Plugins - Device interface plugins and disable the plugin for your device. Then restart calibre. If the plugin is enabled then the Connect to folder option is grayed out.

I get the suspicion that your card is somehow faulty. Did you try to check the filesystem? Do you have another card that you can try?

Hi the card is recently formatted, and I could write all my exported library in the SD moving the files outside calibre.

Is possible that calibre tries to make the conversion of non-epub books previously to send the book to the SD, and is the conversion process the process that fails?

Thanks
