Sony T1 internal memory vs SD card

Hi! After just 4 months I have the massive number of 826 books. Many of them I´ve read and many are yet to arrive. Since collections on the T1 have to be all in the same place (either internal or SD) I´m thinking of placing the largest collection in the SD and the smaller ones in the internal memory. I´m noticing some lag for art work to show when it´s on the SD. Any suggestions or ideas? Thanks!

I place the collections most frequently accessed on the internal memory and less frequently on the SD memory. I try to keep my collections less than 50 books.

I use my micro sdhc for everything but it's one of Samsung's Class 10 ones with their turbo feature their quite expensive as their waterproof, shockproof , magnet proof etc, basicly overkill for an ereader if I'm honest but I like them a lot.

I've no issues everything works well and is pretty instant same as the internal memory.

I don't notice differences in speed, but sometimes when I connect the T1 to my Mac the SD card is not recognized by Calibre, making it impossible to send books to the card. I don't know if the issue is with Calibre or the Mac not mounting the card. I'm not sure how to force it to do so. When this happens, I send the next 5 books in my reading queue to internal memory and then move them to the card the next time I can access it. The T1 can always read the card.

I´m having problems with the two or three last upgrades of Calibre. It takes too long to send books and metadata, or to read the contents of the reader. The reader works great so I think it´s got to do with Calibre. Thanks!

I manage a T1 with Calibre and it's working just fine with Calibre 0.8.49.

I've noticed Calibre is slower at syncing since I turned on automatic management of metadata (under Preferences, Sending Books to Device).

Calibre can take absolutely ages if you have it set to refresh covers under the device interface plugins, I do this once in a while but I keep the option unticked most of the time, I've never had calibre fail to see my micro sd card on windows.

I'm using 0.8.49 myself I rarely update calibre in honesty I might just stay with this version if the newer ones are giving issues.

Thanks! I'll give that a try next time it happens.

With automatic management, this is inevitable. Depending on which options you have set (certain plugboards, creating Collections, sorting Collections), calibre can have a lot of work to do every time you connect. Probably, also, the more books on the reader, the longer it takes. You just have to decide which is most important to you, speed or fine-tuning reader's library management. No such thing as a free lunch

Re: calibre not seeing the external SD card, I've also had this in the past. Calibre only waits so long when trying to decide whether an SD card is present. I raised it as a 'bug' at the time. Kovid's response was that the only thing he could do was to extend the 'looking' time which would slow down all users - not acceptable. Fair enough, I admit my SD card was rather cheap and nasty There were 2 workarounds for a slow SD card, at the time:
  • restart calibre (Ctrl-R on Windows) with the reader already connected via USB
  • use 'Save-to-Disk' rather than 'Send-to-Device'. When the file browsing window pops up the SD card drive can be easily selected

As an aside, I stopped using an SD card shortly after as everything seems quicker and more reliable without, particularly the PRST1. Then again, I only keep 20-30 books on the reader at any one time so it's not as if I've lost anything.

Calibre not seeing the card happened to me using a generic card. First take it out and clean it with a soft pencil rubber and reinsert it. Try reading it with somehting other than your T1 such as an external card reader. I´ve found that Sandisk´s cards are more reliable than other brands and read everytime. Or maybe it´s a Sony glitch because this happens on my Xperia Mini Pro too...
