That's correct.

Indeed, that would be welcome.

Alternatively, perhaps the indexing can be enhanced in such a way that a folder containing a website can register as just one document. It would save the continuous unzipping. I fear that unzipping might be a drain on the battery, but I could be wrong.

Tried that. Didn't like it too much. I would call my files big, so that might have something to do with it. But quite frankly, I doubt it; I just found the interface impractical compared to the native pdf browser. It really needs the menu (= stylus) to navigate. If I just continue to flip pages, I go round and round the same chapter.

I'd welcome .chm support in the native browser. I have several ebooks in that format and have thus far refrained from getting more of them.

Doing a long press (i.e. holding the arrow up/down for more then 5 seconds) should bring you to the next chapter. I am not sure how this works on the DR800.
This probably also depends on the configuration of FBReader, there are some ports around here that have the 'correct' configuration.

Actually unzipping files takes very little time. The reason that the previous version was slow is that it had to go through all files in the zip directory (the list of all files in the zip archive) to find each file.

This update fixes this, it loads the list of files in a binary tree when the archive is opened, so that each file can be found quickly. I've tested it with a 2.5MB archive with 1200 files, and a 215MB archive with 12000 files. Both are very fast now, although the latter takes a bit longer to open.

Note: When upgrading, just overwrite existing files. You don't need to run the script to associate the file types again.

Small update: I also tested it with a zip archive with around 61000 files and it still works well. The archive takes slightly longer to open, since the program scans the whole central directory, so it takes a little more time to load the first page, but after that, it's very fast. Since the original zip format only supports up to 65536 files, I'll update the next version to support the newer ZIP64 format, which removes this (and other) limitation.

Note that this program is a modification of erbrowser, while the pdf viewer is uds (with a plugin for pdf). erbrowser relies on the stylus quite a bit more than uds.

uds supports the plugins..
if someone would take the time to write one for .chm, that would be very appreciated..
I could even help if required..

Question MHT support disabled?

I just tried to open some MHT documents (generated with UnMHT 5.6.0 in Firefox 3.6.4) on my DR1000 (running FW 2.0RC2), but the documents do not even show up. Not in the books view, nor in the SD-card view. Reattaching to my PC does show the files are there. Just to be sure I deleted the metadata.db file in the directory, but that didn't make them show up either.

Is there anything some hidden setting I need to enable?

strange, *.mht files show on my SD card and can be opened, on DR1000S (FW 2.0-RC2)
Perhaps you've a _ (underscore) or . (dot) in the filename as the first character? This would make the files "hidden" in the file-browser on the DR1000

I've added a sample mht file, that opens normally. (had to put it in a zip file, because mht was not supported by the forum)

No, unfortunately that's not the case.

I unzipped it and put it straight in the personal documents folder. However, it does not show up, again, neither under the Personal Documents, nor when browsing to it under SD-Card.

I think tonight I will find myself an empty SD-card and try to start again with a fresh firmware install as I previously had problems with ePub files being not recognised due to remaining metadata.db files. (Unless you have a better suggestion at this point.)

nope, no idea... a blank SD card could help
I've put the file in the "Personal Documents" folder as well and it shows up there as well.

What you could try is renaming the global.db file (not delete, so you can always go back) to global.old.db in the root of the SD card. This will clear all the indexed data, including the thumbnails...
If this doesn't help you can go back by renaming it back to global.db

I copied it to my SDcard, it shows up and can be viewed. I am using rc2. It is strange that it does not show up at all, all 'known' file-types should normally show up (at least in Card-view).

Still no MHT file recognised

Today, I copied FW2.0RC2 to a clean SD-card. I booted the DR1000 to reinstall the firmware. After the "upgrade" completed, I safely removed the SD-card, inserted it in my PC and copied Pauli's MHT file to the SD-card. I safely removed the card from the PC and inserted it in the DR. The DR did not show the MHT-file. Not in Personal Documents, nor in the SD-card browser.

I also tried renaming global.db. That didn't help either. I am really clueless what is going on.

PDFs and ePubs work fine.

My attempts with a clean SD-card and renaming global.db were with a Windows based PC. My earlier attempts were both with a Windows based PC and a Mac running OS X 10.6.

I use a tool called SQLite3 Management Studio, which is a free tool that you can get here. Go to download and search for "SQLite2009 Pro Enterprise Manager".

You can use it to see if the mht-files are added to your global.db file at all.

Nope, they don't show up. So it looks like the indexing process doesn't pick them up. That is weird, because why does it pick other file types, but not mht-flies. And why is it only my DR that is affected?
