RSS Feed Prob...

Hello everyone! I'm new to the world of e-book readers but a few years into e-books in general. I just paid for my Sony Reader and should get it in the next few days. I wanted to be able to get the very best out of it so I downloaded calibre to convert my e-books and I saw that it had the option to make e-books out of RSS feeds.

I tried to make my own custom recipe, called "Gamer's Corner" for all of my game related feeds. From what I can see, they are full-content feeds. So I added all of them:

*Original Sites*

But after I created the recipe and tried to fetch it, the log gave me this error message:

('URLError', u""):
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 760, in worker
File "", line 729, in work
File "C:\Program Files\calibre\\calibre\ebooks\lrf\feeds \", line 42, in main

File "mechanize\_http.pyo", line 700, in http_open

Don't know what it means or what to do so any help would be greatly appreciated because this is a great feature that I would really like to take advantage of. Thank you.


I figured out that I was copying the wrong link for the RSS feeds and that I was actually copying firefox's RSS feeder link (feedburner). So the error has gone but in its place...nothing.

After the e-book has been made, its only content is the header and that's it. Here's what it looks like. I made it with the "PS3 Updates" feed just for example (I use dual screen monitors so that's the reason why the picture looks extended):

Could someone please let me know what to do from this point? The actually feed is
