Well, I haven't owned a Kobo before, just been reading Kobo and other books on my iPhone. I assumed it was DB related because Kobo books (i.e. files in DB) would not open, and when they did, they would display the TOC of a recently-opened epub file, one which I loaded through ADE. There were other problems - some files opened to chapters half-way through the book etc. Since it was my understanding that ADE files did not even get loaded into the DB, it seemed like a reasonable assumption that my DB was corrupted.

Resetting to factory default did work, but was tedious to set up everything again.

DataBase Corrupted

I can not anymore open books with my Kobo (v1.4).
So, I'm trying to put a fresh db on my reader like said in post #1.
The problem I have is I can't delete images folder and KobReader.sqlite file!
I'm using Linux (Debian). The files look like locked (Read Only).
Any idea?
Thanks

Eject the device and reconnect it. I have seen it mount as read only sometimes. You may also want to look at whether any errors show up on the file system.

If you are using debian, I assume that you know how to check how the file system is mounted and how to remount as read write as well as how to do a file system heck on a fat32 drive.

Did you also try powering off the device after you disconnect it? I have noticed that that seems to be necessary as well but neglected to mention it...

Something strange: each time I plug-in the usb cable to my reader, the progress bar displays with "Processing" at the bottom. Just like if I had added a new book. Same thing happens if I unplug the cable. If I open up Calibre a pop-up window shows:
disk I/O error

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/kovid/build/calibre/src/calibre/gui2/device.py", line 69, in run
File "/home/kovid/build/calibre/src/calibre/gui2/device.py", line 311, in _books
File "/home/kovid/build/calibre/src/calibre/devices/kobo/driver.py", line 164, in books
OperationalError: disk I/O error

Damn, what's going on??

I suspect that you have a file system issue. Try checking the drive for errors.

Probably best to do it on Windows but:

sudo fsck.vfat -v /dev/sde

where sde is the device name of the kobo.

You can check the device name using dmesg or mount...

Ok, I did "sudo fsck.vfat -v /dev/sdb" but didnt help.
I have a question. Can I format my kobo (with gparted) in FAT32 and then possibly I can copy
the files I need to it?

Did it show any errors? That won't fix them, I believe a -a is necessary. Read man fsck.vfat

You can probably reformat but I have not done it. I have not heard of anyone doing it so I don't really know

Hello. Me again (sorry).
Ok, So I decided to reformat my Kobo and I added the file "KoboReader.sqlite" into .kobo directory I created. Then, I open up Calibre and I added a book to see if it works. I unpluged
the usb cable, and my Kobo shows "No books found". Do I have to do something else?

What do you mean when you said you reformatted your kobo? Did you wipe the drive and then create only a .kobo directory for the the sqlite file?

Follow the instructions from the first post of this thread. Does the kobo see the books when you turn it on?
