File Name "Tell"

Like a lot of folks I have quite a selection of unread samples, which I keep on my SD card. When looking at the files themselves, is there a giveaway in the name that tells me which are full books vs. only samples? I want to segregate the samples into a different folder on my card and wonder if there's a "tell" in the file name rather than having to look at each one on the Kindle to figure it out.

Samples typically have EBSP in the filename, see Kindle Books From Amazon Without DRM for some example filenames. Since samples are DRM-free, the kindledrm.py command will find them for you.

That's for the prompt assistance. I will give the command you mentioned a try.

Well, as I suspected, I wasn't able to get your command to work for me, but no worries. With the info you gave me via the link, I was able to do a search for "EBSP" in the file name and isolate them. Thanks again.
