Hello,

so this is the first time ever that I have to report a bug....

1. My PocketBook IQ(701) is detected as another device and all stored books are ignored:

Any ideas?

BTW: PocketBook360 (101) is still detected, my Nook (1st. generation), too.

Before I start to install calibre again: Has any other Linux-user similar problems?

Thank you for infos and suggestions,

HelliH

If multiple devices have the same USB Id's then Calibre cannot tell them apart and they can often be detected under the name of the one first added to Calibre.

Note that Calibre now includes the user defined device driver that allows you to set up your own device identification (although you would have to first disable the one it is incorrectly being identified as).

Thank you, itimpi, for answering so quickly.

I've never had a Pandigital Novel which was detected after upgrading to 0.8.2. My IQ (with the same micro-SD) has often been connected to and identified by calibre. The same goes for my Android phone. So far I've never had any problems with my devices. That's why I still think it's a bug.

Can anyone point me to the settings to "disable" the PDNOVEL?

Thank, you, Kovid - for your application and your support!

The sdcard is mounted to /media/5CC9-6EE7. I have no idea what's wrong with my IQ. My Android phone, too, has formerly been detected without problems.

The only driver in the calibre codebase that matches that set of USB ids is the driver for the PD Novel, I don't see how calibre could have detected it as anything else before. The PD Novel requires books to be in the eBooks directory on the card and not in subdirectories. Put your files there and calirbe will see them with the PD Novel driver, or alternatively create a custom driver: http://calibre-ebook.com/user_manual...-connect-to-it

Sorry, but I do know now: It's the alternative firmware or one of the other "hacks" I applied that changed the ID. Before I did that, the IQ (with original fw) was duly detected. So I have to live with the PDNOVEL-ID.

My Android phone has a "metadata.calibre" as of 2011-01-26 sitting on the root of the sdcard. This micro sd has always been in my phone and nowhere else, but I changed the model just lately. It's still an Acer, but my betouch (Android 2.1) was detected, the Liquid (Android 2.2) is not.

So I thank you, Kovid, for hinting me to the root of my "problem" which is no problem anymore.
