Unfortunately, you can't use calibre to transfer books to the transformer. The transformer is not seen by Windows as a separate hard drive, and calibre can only transfer to devices seen as separate hard drives. But something that works for me is to use Dropbox. You install it on your PC and your transformer, and then copy your calibre library into the dropbox "drive" on your PC. The dropbox "drive" on your transformer will see anything you put in the pc "drive" and vice versa. My explanation is probably a little confusing, the dropbox website is much easier to understand. There's a link in my siggy, and if you use it, we both get some extra storage for free.

You need to add the port to the IP address. I forget what calbre's default port is but you can find it where you setup the calibre server.

http://your.ip:PORT_NUM

like
http://192.168.1.1:8080

Moon + supports OPDS so you once you have this configured you can use the search tool in Moon to search through your calibre library.

It says to do that in the user manual/FAQ here: http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/faq....d-phone-tablet which is what I followed with no success.
Thank you though!
