ePub OPF file error

When I try to validate my ePub, I get this error message:

Validate EPUB documents

empowered_10_1_11.epub is not valid or contains warnings!

WARNING: empowered_10_1_11.epub: item (iTunesMetadata.plist) exists in the zip file, but is not declared in the OPF file
Check finished with warnings or errors!

How do I fix this? Thanks.

It its mentioned a couple of times on the forum. If I recall correctly, you need to validate before adding/opening the book in iTunes, since iTunes adapts the book.

1) You mean by dragging the ePub file into iTunes, the original file on the desktop gets this added code?

2) My book is already available in the iBook Store. I made some typo corrections. Can I sent this file with iTunes error, or do I need to go back to the original ePub before I uploaded to iBook Store?

Thanks.

In Windows you can rename the file extension from .epub to .zip, open the .zip file, delete the iTunesMetadata.plist file, the rename back to .epub. On a Mac I think there's a AppleScript somewhere on this forum that you can use to unzip and rezip the .epub after deleting the file. Also if I recall correctly Sigil removes unmanifested files from .epubs.

If I need to test a ebook in iTunes I always make a copy and open that because iTunes adds that file when you add an ebook.
