Please Help with Quikreader and iPhone 3GS

Hello,

I just recently downloaded Quickreader (with the speed reader function) on my iphone 3Gs. I'm currently running a mac with calibre. Can someone give me a step by step approach on how to set this up? I've tried entering the host name manually and I keep getting an error message. I read mainly converted PDFs.

Please help!

What did you specify at the QuickReader end for the catalog address?

It should be of the form http://computer_address:port/stanza

where computer_address is your computers name or IP address, and port is the port you have specified for the Content Server in Calibre. Calibre is not recognising QuickReader as an OPDS compatible device which is why the /stanza part of the URL needs to be present to force the Stanza compatible catalog (which is what QuickReader is looking for) to be used.

Also just to check the obvious (in case it is not ):
  • The content server is started at the Calibre end
  • The port specified in Calibre is the same as you have specified at the QuickReader end
  • The Test Server button in the Calibre Content server setup dialog works (to check it is running and the port is open)
  • The books you are trying to download are in ePub format. Calibre will only list in the Content server Stanza compatible catalog book entries that have this format available in Calibre.
