Try downloading one of those books. However ...

Something is strange. Your screen capture shows the name of your library to be "books". The debug log tells me that CC sees the library name "Books". The folder names should be the same. I don't know if that makes a difference or not.

You said in an email that you are giving up. I can understand that.

If you want a refund for CC, please see of FAQ I must pay for CC to try it. Can I get a refund if I don't like it?

This is wierd, though... Appears as though u can download some files but not others, though when trying to download the one the that option, I get an error. Also tried to copy the files in one of the hooks into the books folder rather than the folder containing it and it won't show up with extra books in the library. Wish I could have someone se what I'm seeing so I could get step by step instructions without there being guests on what may be going on. It took me forever to even get cc to recognize that the files were even there. Maybe a file is in the wrong place?

That means two things are true.
  • CC is able to fetch books from your Dropbox if they are there.
  • Some books are not synced to Dropbox.
I suspect that your Dropbox is out of space, meaning that not all of your files are being synced. You can check this using the following steps.
  1. Using your favorite web browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, whatever), connect to https://www.dropbox.com/login. Log in to Dropbox
  2. You should now see something like the following.

  3. Click the smiley face in the upper right. You should now see something like this.

  4. Check to be sure that you have space available (XX of YY used) XX should be less than YY, ideally by at least a 2 or 3 megabytes.
You can also check the specific book that failed to download. The steps:
  1. While still connected to Dropbox using the web browser, navigate to your library. I think it is /Books.
  2. Look for the folder "Cerulean Sins". I might have the spelling slightly wrong. If you don't find that folder then the book is not synced to dropbox.
  3. If you do find that folder, navigate into it.
  4. Look for the folder "Hamilton, Laurell K. - Anita Blake 11 (XXXX)" where XXXX is a number that I don't know. Again, I might have the spelling wrong. If that folder is not there then the book has not synced. If it is there then nativate into it.
  5. You should now see the files "cover.jpg", "metadata.opf", and "Hamilton, Laurell K. - Anita Blake 11 - Cerulean Sins.mobi". If any of these files are missing then the book is not completely synced. If the .mobi is missing then the download will fail.

The only way to let "someone" (probably me) see what you are seeing is for that "someone" to have access to your dropbox. In other words, you would need to give that "someone" (me) your dropbox user name and password. I don't recommend this because I would have complete access to whatever you have in Dropbox.

Sorry to intrude... It's my understanding that you're syncronizing to dropbox exactly the same library you define in calibre, with folders as they are, so every folder contains only opf, jpg and mobi/lit/epub file for a book.

Thanks for "intruding". It is always helpful to have another eye looking at a problem.

It is also my understanding that the OP is syncing a complete calibre library. I don't think that it is the "real" library but is instead a copy/paste of that library.

Go to your dropbox account via dropbox.com and look in the folder to see if the book exists.

The problem is that, looking at the thumbnails, I don't feel it as a calibre structure but an user structure.

If I'm not mistaken the only thing CC will show for structure is what the metadata.db file has in it since CC is simply reading the metadata.db file for the info.

Update: I see what you mean. When he shows the directory from the Dropbox App that is definitely not calibre's library structure. Looking at his actual CC images it is clear that the files with the names he is showing us is NOT in a calibre library.

I get confused as well. Some of the attachments are clearly CC screens showing a library. They show the "Disconnect" menu item, which coupled with the OP's post #37 shows that the OP has attached CC to Dropbox and CC found a calibre database "metadata.db". Others are something else, perhaps folders that aren't in a CC library, for example the first image attached to post 16.

This confusion is why I suggested that the OP go to Dropbox.com and see what is really in the library. As I said earlier, I don't think that the library is totally synced. Why not I cannot say, but I suspect Dropbox space problems.

Also, DoctorOhh is correct. Most of what CC's cloud connection shows comes out of metadata.db. The two exceptions are cover thumbs and the books themselves, exactly the things that the OP is having trouble with.
