Kindle 3 driver?

Any word on when Calibre will be updated to support Kindle 3?

Cool. Is there any way to backport the device plugin to an earlier version of Calibre? I had some trouble with 0.7.15 so right now I am using 0.6.42.

What if I add this to the end of the file? Is this what you mean?

Code:

class KINDLE3(KINDLE):

    name           = 'Kindle 3 Device Interface'
    description    = _('Communicate with the Kindle 3 eBook reader.')

    FORMATS        = KINDLE.FORMATS + ['pdf']
    PRODUCT_ID = [0x0004]
    BCD        = [0x0100]

Okay, so I change this:
Code:
class KINDLE2(KINDLE):

    name           = 'Kindle 2 Device Interface'
    description    = _('Communicate with the Kindle 2 eBook reader.')

    FORMATS        = KINDLE.FORMATS + ['pdf']
    PRODUCT_ID = [0x0002]
    BCD        = [0x0100]
to

Code:

class KINDLE2(KINDLE):

    name           = 'Kindle 2 Device Interface'
    description    = _('Communicate with the Kindle 2 eBook reader.')

    FORMATS        = KINDLE.FORMATS + ['pdf']
    PRODUCT_ID = [0x0004]
    BCD        = [0x0100]
And leave everything else the same? Can I safely change the name and description?

Hi all. My first post. Just received a K3. Using Calibre in Ubuntu. Had same problem with Calibre not recognizing K3. Applied fix described above by changing id to 0004 which worked. Now have new problem:

"The reader has no storage card in this slot.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/device.py", line 56, in run
self.result = self.func(*self.args, **self.kwargs)
File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/device.py", line 233, in _upload_books
metadata=metadata, end_session=False)
File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/devices/usbms/driver.py", line 97, in upload_books
path = self._sanity_check(on_card, files)
File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/devices/usbms/device.py", line 734, in _sanity_check
raise ValueError(_('The reader has no storage card in this slot.'))
ValueError: The reader has no storage card in this slot."

Any ideas because I have absolutely no idea.

you're tying to send books to a storage card instead of the main memory of the reader. click the arrow next to the send to device button.
