your db is messed up, could have happened if you unplugged your kobo without ejecting it properly.
go to your menu on the kobo and advanced and factory reset.

when that's done fill out the info and plug it into the pc and calibre will detect your device and you will be able to send books to and delete books from your device.

be sure to eject properly from the pc or calibre.

to eject properly go to my computer and find kobo reader, right click it and click on eject.

i've come across this several times but have a good system now, haven't had any problems since i started doing it this way.

hope that helps.

unfortunately you'll have to reload any books that you've had on there already but that really is no biggy if they're all loaded in calibre already.

siraks Thank you for the help.



Even after resetting the reader I am still having problems with it it will detect it sometimes and let me send books but when I eject it the books are not on the device.

OK I just got it to save to the main memory and it worked fine but it still doesn't want to save to the storage sd card for some reason any suggestions on this.

Thank you

hmm the only time i played with an sd card was to just put the sd card into my card reader on my pc and drag and drop any books i wanted to put on there.
then when i put the sd into the kobo it processed and added the books.
i even took the sd out and then back in to see if it saved my spots and it did.

that's the only experience i have with sd cards. i have a bunch of books and still have 1gb of space available on my kobo so i see no need for an sd card just yet.
