@kboley: Nope. The cache file is produced by the plugin. CM's export builds a json database in system/.

IIRC, the plugin's report only reports stuff the plugin did (ie. creation/export, not import).

So, nope, you're in the right place, just doing something wrong .

non-empty kindle collections are deleted

Hello,

I have a little problem. I use two libraries in calibre. When I use the plugin in the second library, I see the next error message:

Spoiler:

Collections deleted from the Kindle:

Collection Managed By Books Change
---------- ---------- ----- ------
(Roma) Calibre 10 Deleted "(Roma)" (did not meet minimum of 1 book for column "Serie")
(History) Calibre 4 Deleted "(History)" (did not meet minimum of 1 book for column "Tag")



The plugin try delete this collections because there are 0 books in the new library, but de Kinddle collection is not empty!!!, there are books for this collection in the first library.

And yes, I marked the checkbox "preserve kindle collections", but if the name in the kindle and the second library is equal, the plugin assign it to calibre, not kindle-only. This is correct.

And if I fill with 0 in the "minimum" field, then a lot of empty collections of the second library appear.

Non empty Collections in kindle are detected correctly, but the comparison is with Calibre, not with kindle... it's an error?¿
Possible Solution: I suggest create a checkbox in "Customize collections to create from Calibre"-> "Don't delete non-empty kindle collections. "


Sorry for my english, it's not my native language.

in advanced.

I'm guessing the books, while they may be on the device, aren't in said Calibre library.

That's the problem, the plugin is tied to the current Calibre library. So, err, it's very late/early, so take that with a grain of salt, but I can't see a real solution, it's designed to be used in a library that matches the content of the device.

Unhappy Unable to see collections on Kindle

I'm sure this has been answered and I have tried searching but I can't find it. I can create the collections in calibre. But even after restarting I cannot get them to show up on my kindle. I have already jailbreaked the kindle and added the Mobileread Kindlet Kit too.

I have a kindle paperwhite gen 1 FW 5.3.9. Please help. Thank you.

@ejpoulloura: You need to use it in tandem with a custom Kindle application (CM). This implies a jailbroken device.

Yes I have this too. But I can only create collections on the Kindle and for them to show on the Kindle. Is there a way to create them on calibre and them to show on the Kindle?

Are you using the version of the plugin that is referenced from the CM thread? (IIRC, it is on post # 1760 of this thread.)

The original Kindle Collections plugin (first post on this thread) does NOT work with recent Kindles.

@ejpoulloura: What eschwartz just said, plus check out the "Sync" menu in CM .

Worked perfect. Thank you. I was using the one from the first page. the link from CM wasn't clear on where the updated version was.

@NiLuJe thank you for your help too. I was not doing the sync bit I think i was expecting to unplug it and it would already bee there. Should read the instructions better.

@ejpoulloura: Don't beat yourself up too much, part of what the tweaked version does is actually print relevant info in that popup: the original version does ask you to restart the device, you didn't misread that .

Collection import not working

Hi
I have Kindle Touch firmware 5.3.7 and am trying to import collections using Kindle Collections 1.7.11.
No collections are imported and I get the following warnings:

*****************
calibre, version 1.43.0
Kindle Collections: Collections imported into custom column "Imported Kindle Collections".<P><P>6 warning messages.

The only thing I can see odd in these files is the names are very long.

can anyone suggest what to try?

Thanks

@mikegee: First, make sure you're aware of the limitations on FW 5.x. (ie. CM & the tweaked plugin).

Second, that's only a bunch of mostly-harmless warnings, which I usually attribute to Windows being stupid.

Re: Collection import not working

Many thanks for the fast response.
I've checked all the prerequisites and they look ok.
I temporarily removed the files giving the warnings and the import completed without warnings/errors but still without the collections being populated.

I'll re-check/reapply the prerequisites and then try again.

@mikegee: Prerequisites? Not really, it's just that the plugin literally can't do anything on its own for the K5. It becomes a simple link in a chain of tools, and CM is the the key part of that chain, not the plugin.

Re: Collection import not working

Thanks again for your help.
I have reinstalled all the components and successfully transferred Kindle Collections into Calibre, updated collections in Calibre and then imported these back into Kindle.
Certainly a huge improvement over the native Kindle Collections functionality!
Thanks for all you efforts!
