Add from device?

Is there a way to add books to Calibre from my 505?

Or do I have to do the 3-step process:
a) save to disk
b) add from directory
c) manually go remove files

Hopefully I'm just missing something...

The 505 (every supported device except the 500) mounts as a generic storage volume. Just click add books and point it to the book on the device itself.

Yes, that would work for a couple of books at a time.

I'm trying to add ~60 books from a SD card that has 752 books on it.

Adding directly from the 505 filesystem means I would have to search thru all of those looking for the relevant titles. (some of whose filenames appear to be isbns.)

In Calibre I can find them easily by sorting by author/title. It literally takes less than 60 secs from the time I insert the card in my 505 until I have all the books identified & selected.

It seems kinda awkward that at that point I have to copy them back out of calibre so I can go add them back into calibre - and then need to go clean up the copies.
