Question Is There a Workaround for a Deregistered Kindle 3

Hi,
I had a problem with my K3 (faded/corrupted book illustrations & screensavers). Amazon kindly replaced it like-for-like which was really good of them.

My old kindle is still useable so I want to carry on using it until it totally expires. But Amazon have deregistered it which isn't such a problem, because using Calibre I can strip the DRM from the books I've bought and still read them.

But I can't create collections anymore which is annoying. Is there a hack to enable me to do this?

PS
I'm not sure if I've posted this in the correct forum?

Sorry I think this has been asked before and I don't want to bore you guys. If it has just ignore the question.

I'm old and silly

Have a poke around looking for the instructions to get Calibre to manage your Kindle collections. This works when sideloading onto a deregistered KK

I had a bricked K3 before I reset it, but Amazon sent me another one. But I did not return my other one, and then I got charged for it in a month's time. U should be able to register it, they simply register it as a second kindle.

So u may not need to strip the DRM off, but have done it to a couple of comics as the hacked PDF application is better for comics.

Back to the topic at hand:

With Calibre u can download meta-data for books, which can include tags or can add the tags yourself, and these can be used by Calibre to create book collections.

I did it a long time ago....but I am sure it would be easier now with tha new updates Calibre has so frequently!

EXCELLENT thankyou both, I didn't realise you could do that, I'm glad I never deleted the question now I will give it a go when I'm on the computer this afternoon.

Regarding amazon wanting me to return my defective kindle. I expected them to say that but I was surprised when they said I didn't have to.

They are a good company.

Having no transport I do nearly all my shopping with Amazon, they're my one stop shop and very competetive on price. Funnily enough I've just ordered some non-kindle related items this morning. I also like their website and the comprehensive 'My Account' and 'Kindle Library'.
