Calibre and Paperwhite

Hi, am STILL having problems delivering books to Kindle Paperwhite.....the only way I can do it at the moment is to convert to AZW3 (it won't accept MOBI at all), and connect Kindle PW via USB to PC to transfer from Calibre to PW

Calibre completes the email to device no problem, but they just don't show up in PW, although I can see them in windows explorer when it's connected, but I can't find them on device (no they're not in 'docs') so have to use Calibre to deliver to device via USB

I even reset the device as advised in previous posts and lost all my books, re added them one by one...

can anybody help me, it's driving me mad!

connect the PW with the USB cable
right-click the device icon
choose configure this device
put a checkmark in the little box for mobi

That will allow calibre to send mobi books to the PW.

As far as why the Kindle Cloud books won't show up on your device... I don't know. Do they show up in the Cloud view before you download them?

fix

I've found a fix I think.....in Calibre change MOBI output defaults (personal doc tag) to [EBOK], and also make sure MOBI options are changed from (new) to (both) - have just managed to wireless transfer 3 books with no problems
