Why the size difference between kepub & epub.
Does anyone know why the same book should be vastly different in size betweek the kepub and the epub?
Incidentally when I altered the series info using edit metadata and typing the series name into the series box it did not work when I saved, so if anyone could explain how to get calibre to save that information in a format that my kobo's (2 wireless, 1 mini & 1 glo) could use I would be grateful.

Also I think your Kobos need firmware 2.2.x just to see the series information, and firmware 2.3.x to do anything useful with it.
Edit: Also check that the "set series information" box is ticked in the Kobo device plugin's customisation menu. (Calibre-->preferences-->plugins-->device interface pluguns-->Kobo Touch-->customisation)

If you want a version that calibre can manage, you need to download the ePub version from the Kobo website; NOT the kepub version!

And as no-one has answered the size issue...
I just opened an epub and the matching kepub and compared the sizes. All the files in the kepub were bigger. Especially the images. I have noticed that the cover images that Kobo are putting on the devices are much bigger than they were before. They are tending to put images sized at 1080*1920 for the full sized cover.
