Delete defective entries

I've been trying to consolidate a few massive libraries and have run into a problem. I now have several (or many, who knows) entries that contain NO valid E-book formats. Does anyone know of a way to auto-delete those entries in the library?

Any, and all, help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Apparently I don't know how to "Select All" from the results of the search. Must be the old eyes and brain. Comments?

Thanks.

Where did these "massive libraries" come from? Perhaps it would be easier to fix at source.

Once I perform the Search: formats:false, I don't know how to select JUST the positive results of the search! Ctl-A (Select All) highlights the entire library!

That search would normally show you JUST the options that match the search so selecting them all is what you want.

If the search is merely highlighting entries then you have probably toggled the way to display the search results (using the button to the right of the 'x' to clear the search results).

Most likely torrent sites, forums, Usenet and other sources where paying is not needed.

Not always, but it's a good bet in most cases.
