Calibre does not see new book!

Hi
I am new to the forum, but have been reading it for some time and found it very useful, thanks to all involved. I hope not to make too many blunders.

I have been using Calibre for sometime to convert books so I can backup for the future when certain formats become obsolete as indeed is happening with Kindle AZW3 .

Recently (latest calibre release) tried to "ADD" a book I purchased which Amazon could not send to Kindle K3W, (incompatible with your device), as it is one of the newly introduced Arabic language books. However I specified send to Nook HD and it was OK and readable on NOOK (which by the way is rooted) with the Kindle App .

The book is in KFX format.

Now after adding the plugins (DeDRM 6.6.1 and KFX input), I tried to "ADD" the book to Calibre but could not see it !, however with Astro file manager I could see it in the usual directory (\Internal storage\Android\data\com.amazon.kindle\files\). as usual with KFX it is a sub-directory.

Is this a known issue? is there a way around this.

If I copy the book's sub-directory elsewhere , then Calibre does see it but once "Adde" it fails to show as KFX format but shows as KFX-ZIP , and of course does not convert to Mobi or any other format. This was not surprising as the anther of the KFX Input plugin stresses that the sub-directory must remain in its original location.

Any advice?

Thanks in advance, sorry about the length of the post

In most cases it is best to import from the original location, but in this case if you copied the entire folder containing the book it should import correctly.

The problem is most likely with DRM removal. I suggest asking for help at either Apprentice Alf's blog or Apprentice Harper's GitHub. (Detailed instructions for DRM removal are not allowed on Mobileread.)
