Well, it turned out as of now directly sending Calibre converted MOBI file through USB does not work(i never use it myself that way). I'll look into it. For now any Calibre converted MOBI ebooks must be sent through amazon. I've sent you your book along with generated X-Ray file, they're tested working. You can also make your own of course.

update v0.2

I've made some update to the script. Basically 2 things:

1) added Organizations section from shelfari.com

2) I thought the default "More on Shelfari" isn't very useful for the way my script works, because I've pretty much grabbed every term from shelfari.com now. So I've changed that to a Wikipedia article link(see images attached). After clicking on the "Full Wikipedia Article" link, it'll launch the browser and attempt to get a full match from wikipedia instead.

update: fixed the issue for Calibre generated ebook not detecting the x-ray file. Now it works with ebooks from both Amazon's Personal Documents & USB side loaded MOBI files converted through Calibre.

that could be caused by several things, most likely incorrect ASIN.

check your PM.

Just created an X-Ray file from the file you sent and it works fine for me. Sent you back with the correct info attached with the generated X-Ray file, so it should work for you too.
Just verify that you have the same info. You probably got one of the IDs wrong.

Also make sure you read the instruction and check the REFERENCE section for anything that's not clear to you.

UPDATE:
- added built-in decimal to hex converter for the GUID so there is no need to use an external converter. It now takes both dec and hex.
- updated REFERENCE section to reflect the change.

Hope in future you can make X-Ray generator as Calibre plugins.

It shouldn't be difficult to implement, and it should even be able to support character/phrase location if going that route(most likely going to be pretty slow in generating the x-ray file though). But Amazon has been rolling out more & more books with X-Ray, I'm not seeing any long term usefulness for the x-ray file generator in the future(perhaps just for people's DRM free books). Also calibre uses Python I think? which means I'll have to look it up & familiar myself with that

Wow- that just looks terrific!

I love that feature! Would love to see it implemented as a Plug-In for Calibre!!!

I generated my x ray file for the steve jobs book, then I put it into the .sdr folder on my kindle. The x-ray button shows up - I click on it and it says "X-Ray is not available for this book...

for other books I try to generate the x-ray files, I can't find the ASIN , only see ISBN

please help

Did you verify with mobi2mobi that you have the correct "uniqid" & "database name"?

do a Mobi to Mobi conversion with Calibre, or send the the book through personal document, it'll generate valid ASINs. Alternatively you could also add the ASIN using mobi2mobi, but previous options are easier for you probably.

Is mobi2mobi a program and can it run on mac? I googled it, but am still confused. I'm anticipating my touch tomorrow, and am trying to figure this out beforehand.

Yes I'm using it on my Mac. Depending on your version, here is a general guide for installing mobi2mobi on your Mac but you might need to adjust few things depending on your setup & software version http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Install_Mobi2Mobi_Mac

I forget the exact steps on how I've installed it but you can always post your questions on this forum for help if you get stuck.
