I have been trying again - e.g. to make some screen shots. Unfortunately after three hours I still cant get CC to talk to Calibre. I will post what I am doing - basically exactly what it says in the help file. I dont have "Where's My Droid" running now so maybe it was just coincidence that it connected after I stopped the "Where's My Droid" app.
I am not complaining about the $3 - as I said - I would happily pay ten times the price for software that does what I want.
NO I dont expect it to update the PDF metadata within the PDF ! If I want that capability, as per my original post , the option is to export the catalogue from Calibre, then generate batch PDF metadata edit commands for a PDF editor. If I do that - I dont need CC at all because Aldiko etc will display correctly anyway (and whether I use CC or not - I still need a reader on my ereader) !

I am looking for a product that will function standalone on my Droid (i.e. provide read access to books while not connected) and provide the (key) searching capabilities (e.g. by author, by title) that I have in Calibre - WITHOUT having to recatalogue everything. (MUST HAVE). [Ideally ALSO "Subject" search - I have used custom Dewey Subject Classification in several thousand books].
As the books are LARGE PDFs (up to 4,000 pages & technical with images) I have space to copy the library to the Nexus but I CANT duplicate the library on the Nexus at the same time (e.g. copy with CC AND import it into another product) . FYI One book is 0.5GB - which severely drains my 32GB Nexus space !
