The file probably does not contain the author meta information. mobi2mobi can be used to add or change author and title information. It works for DRM:ed books also.

I'm sorry, your answer really confuses me. What does the author meta data have to do with the folder I create to place books in on my Cybook?

Many people may wish to sort by author name and so they create folders named after authors and place books in those folders. I prefer to sort by subject matter. For instance, I have created folders to hold files for each subject that I teach. How do I set these files up so that I can see the folder name when I sort by path? Do you see my confusion?

My understanding is that the current version of firmware does not allow us to see the folder names. This is something they are working on for future firmware releases. I also have all my books stored by subject matter, I just have to kinda guess where I am by the books showing on the screen and my knowlege of how I set up my naming convention. It's not perfect, but it's better than nothing.

*Fingers Crossed* for a firmware update soon that addresses folders or at least groupings of eBooks.

The folder name can't currently be displayed.

What Ortep meant is this method works pretty well if you have a folder for each author, and then do a "sort by file path" to sort by author's name, because the library screen shows you the author's name. Not from the file path, but from the metadata in the book itself.

Yes that is the trick. I never realised that by some people the metadata is not complete. It is one of the first things I fix when it is not. So All my books show the name of the author.

It won't help you when you sort by subject

Most of the Mobi books available for download here were created by a tool called "Book Designer" which, unfortunately, doesn't put any metadata into the book. Some of the more recently uploaded ones (such as the ones I've been uploading for the last few months) are done with a different tool which creates "proper" Mobi books with metadata, working navigation links, and so on.

I manage to remember to create a 'Book Title' and 'Book Author' and that's about it for metadata.

And given that the Cybook's Library can do the various sorts and that it can (internally) navigate the subfolders, there's absolutely no reason why Bookeen can't create a folder/subfolder navigation method for the Library. After all the time they've been working on the app, this lack approaches the levels of 'sloppy' and 'unconscionable' - IMO. I mean, like, Linux, Windows, MacOS have all been able to display folder paths for *HOW LONG* now?

But how much of that is down to Bookeen, and how much to MobiPocket? The fact is that no version of the MobiPocket librarian that I know of supports folders (the iLiad, which does support folders, doesn't have any sort of Mobi librarian at all). That's why I'm wondering if perhaps this code is controlled by Mobi and Bookeen don't have too much say about it?

Just a thought...

But Boo Reader is-and had been-a Bookeen-developed application since long before the Cybook Gen3.

And I still can't understand why...?

the Delete button won't work! It's these niggling little details which frustrate me the most!

Wait for the firmware upgrade - I think we've been promised folder support for that, haven't we? Patience is a virtue...

But I haven't seen a promise for a functional 'Delete' button. And we should be able to use the '+' and '-' buttons to navigate the pages, etc...

And I really, Really, REALLY want RTF support!
