@ligos: Try the next release of calibre, it has a bunch of unicode fixes in it. It should be out in a few days.

I installed calibre in my window and get this message, as I get the similar ones from ubuntu. Maybe it is from my device?

Try deleting the file media.xml, disconnecting the device and then once it has finished processing re-connecting it.

However, after deleting that file, calibre doesn't recognize the device, not displaying the reader.

after deleting disconnect the device, let it regenerate the file and then re-connect it.

It has regenerated the file, but still calibre doesn't recognize the reader.

Hello Kovid,

Probably someone asked this before, but I can't seem to find it. There are two reasons to use Sony's ebook library, the store and the pre-pagination. I don't buy books from there, so the only reason for me not to stick exclusively to Calibre is the pre-pagination, that takes sometimes up to 10 minutes on the Reader.

Can you arrange it so Calibre manages the pre-pagination so we Calibre users can discard the ebook library?

Thanks, man.

Unfortunately doing that is highly non-trivial since in order to succeed, calibre would have to reproduce the rendering algorithm of the reader software exactly. Doing that by reverse engineering is not easy.

Kovid,
I know that this could be a question out of the blue, but I will ask it(maybe it was asked before?). The matter is with podcast-they are most often distributed by RSS. Does Calibre have the capability to deal with music in similar way as it handles text(or possibly could have in some future time) so that the created files could be listened on PRS?

Ups!

Would there be a way to make Calibre launch the ebook library, export the file, pre-paginate, import back and close the ebook library, all of this on the background?
The use should give Calibre the direction to the library .exe and then press a button for pre-pagination.

This is probably nonsense, but my Knowledge of programing is next to nonexistent.

Thanks in advance for both your answers.

Only on windows, and I make it a policy to not have platform specific features.
