Nexus One 'Send to device' Error

I'm trying to use Calibre 0.6.36 on Ubuntu with my Nexus One (running Wordplayer).

The changelog says the N1 got preliminary support in version 0.6.34...

I have two problems, however...

When I plug in my N1, Calibre doesn't recognize it unless I tell the N1 to mount the SD card on the PC (this dismounts the SD card on the N1, and it shows up as a removeable disk on the PC).
Calibre then recognizes a connected Android device, and tries to scan it for books.

It shows up in the list as 'Reader' but it doesn't show any books on it. (I have two, currently, both in EPUB format, and Wordplayer reads them just fine.)

I don't know what directory it's looking in, but I'm guessing it's not scanning the Wordplayer library file for book locations?

That's problem number one.

Problem number two is that when I select a book in my Calibre library and click 'Send to device' I get the following error:



Code:
ERROR: Error: Error communicating with device


 The reader has no storage card in this slot.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/kovid/build/calibre/src/calibre/gui2/device.py", line 56, in run
  File "/home/kovid/build/calibre/src/calibre/gui2/device.py", line 233, in _upload_books
  File "/home/kovid/build/calibre/src/calibre/devices/usbms/driver.py", line 97, in upload_books
  File "/home/kovid/build/calibre/src/calibre/devices/usbms/device.py", line 734, in _sanity_check
ValueError: The reader has no storage card in this slot.


I'm not sure where it's trying to put the book, but I can manually browse the N1's SD card, and put stuff on it just fine.


Not sure where I've gone wrong.

Any suggestions?

Thanks a ton!

Tony

You have to mount the device as a drive for calibre to detect it. Go to preferences->advanced and click debug device detection and post the output

I'm fairly sure it is already mounted as a drive.

It appears on my desktop just like any other thumbdrive or external harddrive, and Calibre reports that it has detected it.

It appears in Calibre just to the right of the "Library" in the bar at the top, and it's displayed as "Reader 7.2GB available."

But when I click on it, it doesn't display any of the books that are already on the device, and it gives the previously reported error when I try to send new books to it.

But, here's the debug info anyway:

How is the card formatted?

If it NTFS it won't see anything. Has to be FAT32.

It's FAT32. Good thing to check, though, thanks.

I'm not entirely sure where to find that information, since Wordplayer has total crap for settings and options, but there's a directory on my SD card called 'wordplayer' (no caps), so I guess maybe that's it??

Make a sub directory under wordplayer called calibretransfer and you should be good.

Ok, so I created a directory called '/wordplayer/calibretransfer' on the SD card of the N1, but calibre is still giving me the same error when I try to send a book to the device.
