ePub OK in Windows but empty in Kobo

Hi, folks.

I created a simple file with Sigil.
I can read very well in Windows 7 using CoolRead.

But when I transfer to my Kobo Touch (software version 2.3.1 - 07/12/12) the file is empty.
Four blank pages.



The thumbnail is OK and appears.
But when I open the file the cover and text don't.
Nothing.

Does somebody know why?

My Sigil is for Windows 64 bits version 0.6.2.

Thanks a lot

Roberto
PS: I did'nt no no css definition

<p>Meu primeiro texto em coisa assim.&nbsp;</p>

<p><!--StartFragment--></p>

<p>Steve era capaz de demitir gente se as divisões não trabalhassem em conjunto, mas as divisões da Sony estavam em guerra umas contra as outras.</p>

<p>‘Ei, já que é para fazer coisas na vida, que sejam bonitas.”</p>

<p>Nossa! Pois eu às vezes acredito em seis coisas impossíveis antes do café da manhã.</p>

<p>Jobs acreditava numa integração contínua de hardware e software, o que o levou a construir uma máquina que não era compatível com outras. Gates acreditava em um mundo em que empresas diferentes fossem compatíveis umas com as outras, e lucrava com isso.</p>

<p>Jobs gostava de estimular a rivalidade como forma de animar a equipe — tinha feito isso com a IBM e a Microsoft — e foi o que fez com a Dell.</p>

<p>Uma era que eles são muito lentos. Parecem um navio, não são muito flexíveis. Estamos acostumados a andar rápido. A segunda é que não queríamos ensinar tudo a eles, pois aí poderiam vender para nossos concorrentes.</p>

<p>Isto é para os loucos. Os desajustados. Os rebeldes. Os encrenqueiros. Os pinos redondos em buracos quadrados.</p>

<p>Nada mata tanto o humor como uma verdade geral sem graça.</p>

<p>Com o iPod, Jobs tinha transformado o mercado musical. Com o iPad e a App Store, ele começou a transformar todos os meios de comunicação, desde editoras e imprensa até a televisão e o cinema.</p>

<p>Minha posição era a do rei Leão: se você mete a mão na minha jaula, tome cuidado.</p>

<p>Qual a diferença entre a Apple e os escoteiros? Os escoteiros têm a supervisão de um adulto.</p>

<p>A equipe Mac original me ensinou que os participantes A+ gostam de trabalhar juntos, e não gostam se você tolera um trabalho B.</p>

<p>Nós dois tínhamos esse vizinho rico chamado Xerox, invadi a casa dele para roubar o aparelho de tevê e descobri que você já tinha roubado.</p>

<p>Uma das regras empresariais de Jobs era nunca ter medo de se prejudicar. “Se você não fizer isso consigo mesmo, alguém o fará.”</p>

<p>A viagem é a recompensa.</p>

Could you attach the ePub so I can try it? I could construct it from your post, but that doesn't guarantee it will be the same as what you are producing.

Did the epub pass Validation in Sigil?

Had you added basic metadata - validation doesn't like it if there is no un ique identifier, eg. Author and Title metadata.

If there is a single error in the CSS, the ePub will not display properly in ADE (that's what Kobo uses). This is why you should be using ADE for Windows to test your ePub.

I'm wondering if perhaps you have the entire text of the book in a single xhtml file within the epub. If that file is larger than about 300Kb (I think... if someone knows more accurately, please chime in), some readers will choke on it and fail to display the large file. Whereas, PC-based readers generally don't have this limitation.

I'm not sure that explains the four blank pages, though.

Anyway, if you do have a file larger than 300K, you can split it up easily using Sigil, and see if that helps.

That could also be a good reason why the ePub fails on the Kobo.

That's what I was thinking, too. It would be easy to check, but the OP seems to have gone walkabout. Hope (s)he returns soon.

The OP has not logged in since posting that message.
