With the new DLL's I am getting a dll error from libplist when starting Calibre.

Just to be clear, I am running Win 8.1 64 bit with Calibre 2.8 32 bit.

Re-reading the intro it seems Calibre 32 bit has not been tested. Does this mean we should switch to Calibre 64 bit to take advantage of this fix?

By the way I should follow up my "database is malformed" issue on my iPad by saying I am running ios8.1 on a 3rd gen iPad with calibre 2.8 64-bit on Windows 8.1 64-bit. Can't be the already known Mac based issue, as I only use Windows 64bit. Also, since my iPhone 4s works fine with the new DLLs, maybe it's not related to this issue. Any suggestions?

Personally I have not tested the 32 bit version yet, so I suggest you use the 64 bit version instead.

@ShellShock

IT WORKS! calibre 2.8 (64bit), marvin 2.8, iosra 1.4.4, marvin xd 1.2.4

Good work and thank you for all heroes working on this topic!

Probably you'll find out how transfering annotations from marvinxd back to calibre. It's not working. Probably still broken?

Thank you

Thanks for your help
How many books do you have in Marvin?
Have you tried the trouble shooting steps https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho....php?t=241143? Especially a hard reset of your device?

Firstly thanks to all for all for the time and effort spent on this problem

I am running Windows 7 64 bit with Calibre 2.7 64 bit.

I followed the instructions and copied over the dll's and wonder of wonders it worked. I started to copy over my books to Marvin - no trouble at all. Then as I was adding the last 29, I got a message - Error communicating with device and the following

database disk image is malformed

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 87, in run
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 502, in _books

File "C:\Users\Janice\AppData\Local\Temp\calibre_k7gjrt \omqnpb_ios_local_db\Marvin_overlays.py", line 2109, in _profile_db
DatabaseError: database disk image is malformed

I reinstalled 2.7 but no joy.

Having had it working for half an hour it is very frustrating and confusing.

Also when I try to customise the plugin to check if it is still linked to Marvin I get an error message - Import error no module name PyQt4

If i leave the ipad connected windows just keeps telling me that an ios device is attached but calibre says error communicating with device.

Thanks for your help

Looks like a bug in how I built the 32 bit dlls. Should be simple to fix.

I'm using Calibre 1.48 on a WinXP computer (yeah, I know, I know...). I will try to test the new DLLs later today. Query: Do I need to fear the "malformed database" error when I try to connect to Marvin or is that just a Mac problem? I'm a bit wary of trashing my Marvin database as I have a looooooot of books on my device.

This is now fixed and tested with 32 bit Calibre on 64 bit Windows.

No, it seems to happen on Windows now too, as in Zebedi's post earlier in this thread. There is an existing bug report raised for this on Mac https://github.com/Philantrop/calibr...ons/issues/130. I need time to digest it; it could be something in the Linux libimobiledevice code that I have ported to Windows, which means that the bug will now be common to Linux and Windows. Or it could be in Marvin, or the plug-ins, or ios 8. It seems to be related to the number of books in your (Marvin?) library. We need to narrow down the possibilities, and try pinpoint in which component the bug is.

Good morning @ShellShock.

I found the solution to the connection problem - I needed to update the Apple software on my windows machine. Having done that I can connect either my iPhone 4s, running IOS8, or my iPad2, running IOS7. However in both cases I now get the malformed database message (attached). I first saw this message (on my Mac machine) with the fix to IOSRA for the change from Qt4 to Qt5 and I suspect that it is related to this. I do not get the malformed database message when running Calibre 64 bit 2.8 on my Win 7 machine when I use the standard Calibre dlls (rather than your latest versions) and the iPad running IOS7.

All the best.
