books disappear on kindle paperwhite

hi there,

I just bought a kindle paperwhite and I was trying to load the books contained in the calibre library.

after I send the books to the device and eject the device, some books disappear and the number of books goes from 69 to 38 to finally 34. (the real number in the library must be 69)

I must say that sometimes i reconnect the device, the library on the kindle in calibre is fine (69) then i disconnect the device and all the books are there.
but the next time i connect/disconnect the device they disappear again.

does anyone knows how to solve this issue

thank you!!

Kindles treats many items as 'Personal Documents', not books (Amazon SELLS books ).

Calibre just knows which are really book type files

I have a Paperwhite coming today so we'll see. If you mount a Kindle Touch via USB you can drop your book into the proper folder. With my Kindle Fire I can use Amazons Android File Utility on my Mac to drop books into the Books folder (as opposed to Documents)

I tried to reformat all the library in mobi format for the kindle paperwhite, erase all the content in the device, and then transfer the newly formatted files to the kindle, but the problem is still there.

when i disconnect the device the number of books drops from 59 to 36 to 31....
then again i connect and disconnect and the number is 59 stable,and this happens over and over every time i connect/disconnect

and they just disappear, they are not seen as documents since all the available files format are displayed...

Have you tried saving the books to disk (from Calibre) and dropping them into your Kindle via usb connection?

Just got my Paperwhite...

My covers didn't show either when I dropped my books onto the Paperwhite via a usb mount. Using the "Send to Kindle" app fixed that problem.

So try using Send to Kindle app
