Calibre failed to load complete book onto reader

I just ran into a problem for the first time. I successfully downloaded a book onto Calibre. The book has 402 pages. I can open up and read the complete book in Calibre. The problem occurred when I transferred the book from Calibre onto my Kobo Aura H2o reader. Only the first 72 pages of the book transferred. I have completely removed and re-added the book. I have done a reboot of the reader. This is the first time this has happened. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Have you tried opening the book in calibre's editor and running an error check (the red bug icon)? You can also try an epub to epub conversion which will also help with some structural errors.

The Sigil editor can also do similar error checks.

If the book is not copyrighted, you can attach it to a message so other eyes can take a look at it. If it is copyrighted, use ScrambleEbook ( see ScrambleEbook: Getting help with copyrighted books ) in the calibre forum and then attach it.

EDIT: Make sure to have a backup copy of the ebook before editing.

Thank you David for responding so quickly to my query. I found the problem which turned out to be not nearly as complicated as I thought. Turns out the issue was with the source of the download. Due to the way the book pages were numbered, I thought I had downloaded the whole book. Nope. What I had on Calibre was what I got on the Kobo. I tried a new source and bingo, I got the whole book. I should have checked the download more carefully. Thanks again for offering the advice. I did try the bug check which I didn't even know existed. Cheers.
