Converting to EPub for Asus MyLibrary
Hi, I have been trying to use Calibre to convert EBooks from various formats into EPub for use on the Asus MyLibrary application on the Eee-pad Transformer. Most of the epub files I have produced so far simply crash MyLibrary when I try to open them. I have tried fiddling with the output profile and some of the other settings, but so far the problem remains. All I have worked out so far is that files converted from PDF or .LIT files pretty much always crash, whereas epubs created from HTML files work fine. So at this stage I'm assuming that there is some feature that is present in the .LIT and .PDF files that MyLibrary can't handle when converted by Calibre.
I have tried converting the same .LIT files using Stanza desktop, and the resulting epubs work perfectly. Any suggestions as to what settings I should try to get Calibre to produce files the Transformer will be happy with? Thanks....

MyLibrary is a very rudimentary .epub, .pdf and .txt reader, but is THE native ebook reading app on the ASUS Transformer. From postings on xda developer's forums, it is undergoing fixes/enhancements and should be updated in the near future (hopefully no later than June 2011 ).
I like the look and feel of this app especially the two column layout in landscape mode for .epub ebooks (however, that is not yet available for .pdf ebooks ).
It displays the ebooks elegantly and even has TTS, but lacks TOC and good navigation controls as well as system settings that can be changed. I like to tinker and it doesn't let me...
Other ebook readers you can try are Alkido, Cool reader, FBReader, Moon+ reader as well as the Kindle or Kobo android apps. Just search the Android Devices forum here at mobileread.com for more on these.
