Maybe this is not the right thread, but Calibre fails to connect to Kindle after the latest (8.33) update.




Calibre, version 0.8.33

ERROR: Error: Error communicating with device

Failed to access files in the main memory of your device. You should contact the device manufacturer for support. Common fixes are: try a different USB cable/USB port on your computer. If you device has a "Reset to factory defaults" type of setting somewhere, use it. Underlying error: [Errno 22] invalid mode ('wb') or filename: 'F:\\driveinfo.calibre'

Traceback (most recent call last):

The computer recognizes the Kindle OK.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Works fine for me. Just remember that it does take ~20-30 sec for Calibre to recongnise your kindle.

Can this be used for emailed books?

Does anyone know if this can be used to automatically add an emailed book to a collection?

Thanks,
Adam

Unhappy kindle fonts with kindle collections calibre plugin

I've tried to add my own fonts several times using the kindle collection plugin under the modify kindle settings options. The alt font files get created, but after I reboot my kindle the new font does not show up in my books. Instructions also say that there should be an "alt" option when to into Aa from an open book.

I have kindle firmware version 2.5.8 and calibre version 0.8.30.

Any ideas??

Thanks in advance

For example, DroidSerif is popular and free, available from http://www.google.com/webfonts/famil...ly=Droid+Serif (you will need to extract the 4 files from the zip file, and rename DroidSerif.ttf to DroidSerif-Regular.ttf)
When I click the link I am just taken to some page which only shows the font. How to actually save it? I tried going to the webpage shown there, but managed to go only to some pro versions which costs 200 $. So basically I am trying out the font feature and wanted to do it by the instructions, but seem unable to . Any help is appreciated

From the webfont page for that font, select "add to collection". Then click on "use" and up near the top right should be a link that says "download your collection". That should do it.

There is no add to collection. I open the link and there is only text with a few links to other places. How to save the font?
I should open it with kindle browser or something?
I think you have to download it with your computer, since you need to rename files, extract etc.

I think I might see the problem. Instead of using that link, try http://www.google.com/webfonts/ and from there (after clicking "start finding" or whatever is on that first splash screen), search for Droid Serif in the search box on the left. Then the other stuff I mentioned should show up. That seems to work on my end.

Thanks. Got it. Wonder why it's not available on the home page etc. Is it really free? I have seen only the pro version which is quite costly. And google fonts also only suggests them to use on webpages, even if they provide you with the download of it.
Well, will try to set it up.

No books were found on the Kindle

I just purchased a Kindle fire for my wife and am trying to setup collections for her. I installed calibre, then used it to send the .mobi files to the Kindle. I am able to look at the directory structure and see the books in the documents folder. I am also able to read the books on the Kindle. But whenever I try to run "Kindle Collections" I get an error that "No books were found on the Kindle". I ran in debug mode and saw the following items that didn't seem correct. They are:

"Device does not seem to be a Kindle - no "J:\system" directory found:
BEGIN getting collections from file
Reading file: system\collections.json
No such file: system\collections.json
END getting collections from file

There is no \system\ directory on the Kindle. Log attached

This plugin does not support the Kindle Fire. And due to the way the Fire (and Touch) manage collections, this is unlikely to change.

Hi
thanks for the tutorial
I had the feeling to follow it all right
However when I want to view report of kindle collection, I get error message

Just a bit of confusion about the required Calibre versions for this plug-in. Page one of this forum (and the Calibre Plugin list) notes that version 0.8.6 is required.
However, the latest version seems to be 0.8.35

I'm a bit nervous about trying this, although I use Calibre occasionally for formatting. Just want to make certain that I am using the correct set-up before I try it with my Kindle.
Thanks for any help.

Versions are Strings.
8.6 is Eight dot Six not point 6
8.35 is 29 revisions past 8.6
