Question T3 does not show all ebooks in the internal memory

I have connected my T3 to my Windows 7 computer and used Windows Explorer to copy about 120 ebooks from my computer hard drive to the "Download" folder in the internal memory of T3.

Upon disconnecting the USB cable, the circular arrows at the top left corner of the T3 screen rotated for a while and showing the message "loading ..."

After the loading message disappeared, I opened the bookshelves and chose to see "Books" at the top left corner of the T3 screen. The T3 only showed about 90 ebooks out of the 120 I copied over from my computer.

I tried soft reset, nothing changed, still showed 90 ebooks out of 120 copied.

Then I reformatted the internal memory of the T3 using the T3 Settings menu (i.e. not reformatting from my computer via the USB cable). Copied again the 120 ebooks from my computer to the newly reformated T3 internal memory using Windows Explorer. Same problem - still showed 90 ebooks on the T3 instead of 120 copied over from my computer.

Are there any other ways to overcome this problem?

First thoughts would be are they all in a supported format and do they work on other devices or a desktop reader?

These 120 ebooks are in epub and pdf formats

All the epub ebooks read OK on my computer using Sony's Reader software for Windows.
I use Adobe Reader to read the remaining pdf files on my Windows 7 computer.

This is normal. And it gets worse the more books you simultaneously transfer to the reader. It is safer to only transfer in small batches. However, that can be quite tedious when you have a really large collection. So I decided to create a HTTP server on my PC, and whenever I need a book I use the T3 browser to search for it and to download it via Wi-Fi.
