Downloading to e-reader

I was trying to download the Agatha Chrisite from the October reading club. Although I have posted this elsewhere I didn;t get an answer, obviously the wrong place.
I couln't download this to my sony. It had an attirbute error. apparently "no split". What does that mean and how do I rectify it. I am using Calibre.

Can someone help me here, please?

Rose,

I'm not sure I understand. Could you post the link to the book, the _exact_ error message (and what generated it - calibre, the sony, windows?) and explain how you were trying to transfer the book? This might make troubleshooting a little easier?

Thanks for replying az. I have tried to down load Agatha Christies, Mysterious affair at Styles using Calibre. It is from this site and it is an EPUB format.
It fails to read the metadata, then if i try to send it to my device, it says AttirbuteError 'None type'object has no attribute split.
Does that make any sense?

Yes it does - but I don't really know what is going on. I found the book you are referencing, it is this one. I get the same error when trying to import it to Calibre. Looks like there is something about the cover image that Calibre doesn't like.

I don't have my reader on hand, but I suspect I would get the same error. I'll try later.
As a workaround, perhaps you could try to load this LRF version to your reader?

According to the book posting...

Quote:
NOTE: Calibre doesn't recognize the SVG cover, so the book isn't readable there. However, it seems to work fine everywhere else.
FWIW transferring it with the Sony software works fine.

Maybe editing it and removing the SVG cover or replacing it with a JPEG would work.

not sure I can use Feedbooks in the UK, can I? We are the poor citizens over here.
Thanks for you help, guy. I will download it on and see how I get on.

I doubt that, sounds more like your reader doesn't like that particular epub.
Have you tried the lrf version I linked to:

I did download The Mysterious affair at Styles in ePub from MR. I did put it on my 505 using eBook Library. I had not problem at all reading it. I don't use Calibre to put content on my 505. I use eBook Library.
