[PocketBook Inkpad3] Remove uploading to "books" root folder

Hi,
I have PocketBook Inkpad3 and Calibre always uploads my books into /books/<template> instead of expected /<template>.

Can anyone advise how to instruct it not to prefix upload path with "books"?

right click on the device icon in calibre and configure it. Although depending on whether the driver for that device hardcodes the /books or not, you may or may not be able to change it.

This is exactly what I did.

It is possible. Is there a way to view a code of pocketbook device driver?

Kovid, I looked into manual and did some Googling. I didn't find device plugins and, specifically, I looked for Pocketbook 701 plugin which seems supporting Pocketbook 740 as well.
Can you direct me to a URL of device plugins?

Thank you,
L

No one has mentioned it, but cramming many files/folders into the root of a file system is not a good plan (FAT16 had a very low number of entries before it ran out of space, FAT32 relieved the pressure.)
