Post How do I make Periodicals???

I have a PRS-T1. I have some books on it and a heap of comics I downloaded and converted into EPUB format.

How can I convert my comic books to the right format and where do I store them on the device?

Any help would be appreciated.

I don't profess to know exactly how a periodical differs other than having a brief look inside a periodical epub out of curiosity, but if you grab the a Calibre source code drop from http://calibre-ebook.com/download_linux and look inside src/calibre/ebooks/epub/periodical.py you might get some ideas.

Cheers,
Simon.

How does a "periodical" differ from an "ebook" in Sony's T1 case.

a ROUGH AND READY method to make an ePub show in "periodicals" on the T1:

Rename the .epub to .zip and extract, or use calibre right click "Tweak Book" and "explode epub".

Navigate to the folder "META-INF" and add a file "metadata.xml" with the following content:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"
		 xmlns:dcterms="http://purl.org/dc/terms/"
		 xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/"
		 xmlns:prs="http://xmlns.sony.net/e-book/prs/">
	<rdf:Description rdf:about="">
		<dc:title>The Economist [Mo, 05 Mrz 2012]</dc:title>
		<dc:publisher>calibre 0.8.41</dc:publisher>
		<dcterms:alternative>The Economist</dcterms:alternative>
		<dcterms:issued>2012-03-05</dcterms:issued>
		<dc:language>eng</dc:language>
		<dcterms:conformsTo rdf:resource="http://xmlns.sony.net/e-book/prs/periodicals/1.0/newspaper/1.0"/>
		<dcterms:type rdf:resource="http://xmlns.sony.net/e-book/prs/datatype/newspaper"/>
		<dcterms:type rdf:resource="http://xmlns.sony.net/e-book/prs/datatype/periodical"/>
	</rdf:Description>
</rdf:RDF>
while changing the "Economist" and date stuff to whatever you want yours to be.

There's probably an easier way to do it, but that's gonna be up to someone else!

If you're using Calibre's Fetch News feature to create your News epubs you shouldn't need to do anything special. When I send-to-device to the T1 they automatically end up in the Periodicals section (accessible by the Periodicals button). In addition they are also accessible in the Sony Collection called 'News'.
