Structure of cache.xml

Hi all,

I'm trying to understand the structure of the cache.xml db file. So far, I've found this:

<text author="Edgar Allan Poe" status="0" sourceid="361" id="365" date="Sat, 09 Jul 2011 23:09:41 GMT" tz="-120" mime="application/pdf" path="Books/Edgar Allan Poe - The Black Cat.pdf" size="99190" title="The Black Cat"/>
  • author: ok
  • status: ?
  • sourceid: ? (seems to change all the time)
  • id: unique, but not arbitrary: the device updates it when disconnected from the computer)
  • date: creation date, UTC
  • tz: time zone (time offset from utc)
  • mime: mime type
  • path: ok
  • size: in bytes
  • title: ok

So basically, what I still wonder about are the status, id, and sourceid fields. Ideas/Advice? Likewise, I couldn't find anything regarding the cacheExt.xml file.

Thanks!

I think status indicates if the book has been opened or not. It's how the Reader puts the "New" button on the book icon.

Hi wakata,

I'm currently not into this, but came across this post: Reloading Books so as not "New" on reader. in the sony main forum, regarding the new-indicator.
