calibre-parallel.exe crashes on book import

Hey all,

I'm using Calibre Portable 8.8. When I try to import a specific and pretty large e-book file, the error "calibre-parallel.exe stopped working" (or something like that) occurs and the import fails. However, I would really like to import this book into my library. Is there any way to fix this or import the book manually?

Thanks,
domee

1. You can make an empty entry then got edit metadata and add the book from the add format option.
2. Disable read metadata from file on import I am guessing the file you are importing is a pdf
calibre sometimes has problems with reading metadata of pdf and crashes
