Archos 101 Support?

Just downloaded the new 0.7.42 and noticed that it had Archos 101 support. I've connected my 101 via USB and mounted it to copy files, but Calibre is not showing it as a device.. what am I missing?

  • What OS are you using?
  • How are you mounting it?
  • Excuse my ignorance, but is it possible your mounting software is conflicting with calibre's way of mounting the device?
  • Is the device interface plugin enabled?
  • Do you have a device like a iPhone connected to your computer for charging? (If so disconnect and try again)
Open calibre, connect your device, go to Preferences - Miscellaneous and click on Debug device detection. Include the output here in a post.

My Archos 70 (Gen 8 as 101) was recognized as Android Phone in Calibre 7.42 when plugging it with usb. All enews will be automatically uploaded to /ebooks/import/ folder in Archos internal drive.

The /ebooks/import/ folder is for Aldiko Reader on Android.

As I usually generate mobi output for enews, it would be nice if Calibre can automatically upload them to /Kindle folder. I'm not sure how I can tweak Calibre to do that; or have to ask Kovid for that.

In the meantime, I have to use manually press Save to Disk button in Calibre menu and specify /Kindle folder as a destination folder. It's fine, but automatic upload would be nice.

If you disable to plugin for your device you can use the Connect to folder option to connect to /Kindle folder. Once connected this folder will be treated as a device. Under preferences - tweaks there is a tweak you can use so it automatically connects to that folder.

Good Luck.

Thanks dwanthny. I have both Archos 70 and Kindle 3.

If I do as you suggest, when I plug my Kindle 3, will it still upload my enews to the right folder in my Kindle 3?

By the way, how can I disable plugin?

I was suggesting you go to Preferences - Plugins - Device interface plugins - find the Android plugin and disable it.

Don't mess with your Kindle plugin and the Kindle will keep working as it always has.

Only connect one device to calibre at a time.

Hi dwanthny,

I've tried that and Calibre automatically upload enews to /Kindle folder. The problem is the enews are in /News subfolder which Kindle for Android won't dig into it. The enews has to be in /Kindle root folder, not /Kinlde/News/.

Any way to put it in /Kindle root folder?

I didn't anticipate calibre creating a news directory on a connect to folder device. Submit a bug/enhancement request and see if this can be controlled.

You can go to preferences->plugins->device interface plugins and customize the folder device to not use sub directories.

Hi Kovid,

Thanks. I go into Android plugin customization screen, it lists only ePub and PDF. How can I add Mobi and AZW into it?

Ah I see that plugin doesn't support that customization. In that case I'm afraid your only option is to use save to disk in a single directory. You can also open a ticket asking for that customization to be added to the folder device driver.
