The recognition for devices are in the drivers in calibre. And, the KoboTouch driver does not recognise the Elipsa yet. I have most of the changes needed, but, have not been in a hurry as the device has not actually been released. I will check it in soon.

But, if you have one, can you tell me the firmware version it has?

Out of curiosity, where did you get your Kobo Elipsa? I was not aware that they were shipping as yet since their website still shows June 24th as the availability date.

I am a tech reviewer. I have one Elipsa to test.

I was wondering if that was the case. I have just checked in the changes to recognise the Elipsa. They will be in the next release of calibre or you can run from source. It doesn't have the correct firmware or database versions. I will update those when I find out what they are. This will mean the warning about the firmware will be displayed, but, using the "Attempt to support newer firmware" option in the driver should be safe.

Thanks, Iíll try with the source.
For the firmware, I didnít sign a Non Disclosure Agreement, but I think it is inappropriate to show data from a device that is not yet in availability. I hope you understand.

I don't think it's inappropriate to give the firmware version.

Please do. And tell me if I got it wrong.

I can understand that, but, I don't think Kobo would have an issue. Previously, reviewers have posted photos of the Device information page or included it in video reviews. I haven't noticed one for the Elipsa.

I know. I'm wondering if the factory firmware is going to be a 4.27 or 4.28 or something, but the first update will be 5.0. The changes in this should justify the full version bump.

Question:

Save template:
{#kobopath}/{author_sort:sublist(0,1,&)}/{title} - {authors}

Occasionally I have a fanfic change titles. The driver sends it as a new book because the save template has changed. I end up with duplicate copies of the book.

Is there a way to have the driver just overwrite the existing matched book despite it being the wrong title?

No.

I've considered it how to handle this, but, the work involved doesn't seem worth it. This has to be done by overriding something in base calibre code, and there isn't a good spot to do it without major changes.

The alternative would be a "move" function in the Kobo Utilities plugin to change the name of the existing file. But, that means a lot of database updates. It is a bit to risky.

What about an option to work with a custom column containing the previous filename or something similar? If the extended driver or utilities can then verify it's a duplicate book at the old location, deal with it appropriately...

Also, I thought the saved metadata on the device kept some of this info.

So change the filename back to what it was before sending it to your Kobo.
