Can't get books from Dropbox to Marvin

Suddenly my books will upload from Calibre to Dropbox, but can't get them into Marvin--I hit get books and nothing shows up. It's like the link between Marvin and Calibre is broken. Any suggestions? Can I switch to another Dropbox in Marvin--would that help? Thanks much...

I think the latest update for Marvin did something with the dropbox connection...sorry don't remember exactly what it was. I would try deleting the old connection and then reconnect. FWIW I haven't had any issues with dropbox and I have the latest iOS/Marvin versions. Although I only use dropbox for syncing my reading position and not for getting books.

If you are using Calibre already, why not just download your books directly from Calibre Server instead of using Dropbox as a middleman??

The Dropbox server is always on, you just need a wifi connection to download from it. For Calibre server, we have to provide our own server, and personally I do not want to keep my PC switched on all time just for that. Sometimes I only use my PC at the weekend.

I usually get my books onto my device via BitTorrent Sync instead of Dropbox, but I'll see if I can replicate here. The earlier suggestion of removing the Dropbox account and then adding it again will probably fix it for you.
