You must have a LIT book with DRM on it. You need to google for ConvertLIT... download it and follow the readme on how to remove the DRM from the LIT file but "downconverting" it. Once you have done that Calibre will be able to convert it to .LRF.

Thanks for your help. I have just updated my version of Calibre and in my previous version an encrypted book generated a message saying it was encrypted. As a novice I was confused by the different terminology but I am with you now. It's great that you take the time to help those of us less knowledgeable. On behalf of novices everywhere thanks!

I am helping my mum with this and in the previous version of calbire if you had the keys.txt in the program directory it would remove the DRM on conversion. Now it always gives the unable to decrpyt title key message ....

Has the functionallity changed?

Previously calibre used ConvertLIT to extract LIT files, but because there were several bugs in ConvertLIT (and the maintainer is MIA) calibre now includes and uses its own LIT-extraction code.

I'm afraid that you'll now need to convert as a two-step process -- strip the DRM with ConvertLIT (there are no known bugs in that aspect), then convert with calibre.

The short answer is RTFM, the long answer is . . .

In the Search & Sort section of the on-line Calibre User Manual it states:

The Search & Sort section allows you to perform several powerful actions on your book collections.
  • You can sort them by title, author, date, rating etc. by clicking on the column titles.
  • You can search for a particular book or set of books using the search bar. More on that below.
  • You can quickly and conveniently edit metadata by double-clicking the entry you want changed in the list.
  • You can perform Actions on sets to books. To select multiple books you can either:
    • Keep the Ctrl key pressed and click on the books you want selected.
    • Keep the Shift key pressed and click on the starting and ending book of arange of books you want selected.
  • You can configure which fields you want displayed by using the Configuration dialog.

In other words, the main book view list view works like most list view controls in windows that sort on the column that you click in ascending order if not sorted by that column, or toggles between ascending/descending order if already sorted on that column.

Now having said that there is an error in the program that makes this not work as desired when adding new books, basically a missing refresh.

Let's take your typical scenerio:
  1. Sort by author (ascending)
  2. Add one or more new ebooks to the library
    Your new books are now at the beginning of the list even though you are sorting using the author column (as if the sorting was deactivated).
  3. Click on the author column twice.
    This sorts in descending and then ascending order and now you see your books as you want them.

The following Calibre bug tickets are currently open:

Description ¶

I have my list sorted by Author (ascending) and then add one (or more) ebooks to my library.

The just added ebooks appear at the beginning of the list and NOT in the proper sort order.

It is necessary to click on the author column twice in order to get the list to display as it should have automatically after the add.

I assume this is just a missing update after the add operation.

Changed 69 minutes ago by kovidgoyal ¶

* status changed from new to closed
* resolution set to wontfix

No, it's intentional, to allow you to find your newly added books quickly.
