Thanks Kovid, you are right of course, Calibre 2.8 is working for me now too. Maybe it was the not detecting devices bug I fixed that made me think otherwise.

I have only Calibre 64 bit installed.

FYI - tried with both Calibre 2.7 & 2.8 and also tried updating my iPad Mini to iOS 8.1

@Dchiplin - in the ios reader plugin customization, you can enable debug logging. Only problem is, I am not that familiar with Calibre so I don't know where the log goes. Perhaps someone else can chip in here?

Alternatively, one of the changes I made during the port to Windows was to also write all debug logging to the standard Windows debug output. You need a viewer to see this, I suggest DebugView, which you can download or run directly from here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/s.../bb896647.aspx.

Also make sure you are using the latest dlls from the first post, as I have updated them twice today. There was a fix to a bug that can prevent connections.

Please note that I have now uploaded all the source code to GitHub. Please see the imobiledevice.txt at https://github.com/Polyfun/libimobiledevice-windows for instructions on how to build the port. There are four repositories in all, three of which are forked from the Linux repositories; I have requested that my changes are pulled back into the Linux master, but I have no idea if this will happen. Anyway, it should be easier to maintain the Windows port in sync with the Linux version in future.

@ShellShock: You want debugging output from calibre, simply right click the preferences button and restart in debug mode, debug output will be written to a temp file.

And even if you dont start in debug mode, stdout and stderr are redirected to temp files in the windows temp dir whose name looks something like calXYZ.tmp or calibreXYZ.tmp

Thanks Kovid, that is much simpler than my way. I've found another way to do it too:

From the Windows console in the main Calibre directory:

calibre-debug -g 1> debug.log 2>&1

I decided to also write to the Windows debug output as this automatically appears in the VS output window when debugging.

I confirm that the IOS reader application is customised to Marvin and that the Marvin plugin is also in its default state. I have tried again with the latest version of the new dlls with the same result - Calibre reports that IOSra needs to be installed, but it won't install it - reversion to the old dlls removes this error message and IOSra is still present and correct.
Using Win 7 64bit, Calibre 2.8. FWIW the existing setup with old dlls still connects properly to IOS7.

Please post some debug logs here, @AndrewG, and confirm what version of iOS you are using.

@Shellshock

As requested here is the debug log attached.

I am currently running IOS 8.1 on an iPhone4s, and IOS 7.1.2 on an iPad 2, however as you will see from the log I did not get as far as trying to connect either device to my Win 7 64bit system.

All the best!

Thanks so much for your hard work. I copied the files into the DLLs folder for calibre as instructed. I don't get the recurring message when I plug the iPad into my laptop (which is what I had before), instead I get this message when I select Get books->calibre in Marvin and calibre detects my ipad:

Interestingly, I don't get that error on my iphone 4s, where everything seems to be working perfectly. Only on my iPad (3rd generation). Both phone and ipad are running ios8.1. It looks as though there's something wrong with my Marvin library on my iPad? Maybe it's not related to this problem at all, but something different. Suggestions?

One thing, make sure only one of your devices is physically connected to the PC when you try to connect from Calibre.

Looking at the log, my guess is you are using the 32 bit Calibre on 64 bit windows, but with my 32 bit dlls. I suggest you uninstall Calibre, install the 64 bit version, and then use my 64 bit dlls.

Hmmm that is a challenge for people who use calibre PORTABLE as that only comes in a 32 bit version....

Hopefully the 32 bit dlls in my first post will work with Calibre portable. The log suggests a mismatch between the bitness of Calibre and the bitness of the dlls. They have to be either both 32 bit or both 64 bit:

32bit dlls with 32bit Calibre on 32bit Windows
32bit dlls with 32bit Calibre on 64bit Windows
64bit dlls with 64bit Calibre on 64bit Windows

I can see my instructions were a bit ambiguous about this, so I have updated them.

Hi @ShellShock

I have now replaced Calibre with the 64 bit version and now have a different problem after putting in your 64 bit dlls.

Log attached.

Thanks for your help
