Ebook do not sync with Kobo App

Hi,

I wanted to read ebooks sometime on my computer so i downloaded the KOBO app for desktop.

But my library is empty on the computer, however it shows the title last book uploaded to the ereader...

I use calibre to manage my ereader and my library but i don't like the eviewer since it doesn't sync with the book and the page i stopped on my ereader.

Does someone has the same issue ?
Thank you,

Hi--the Kobo app will only show and sync books bought from Kobo, and it sounds like your books are side loaded to your device using Calibre. Sorry.

If you want to be able to read epubs on your PC you could try Sony's Reader for PC software. Sony still has it available for free download on their support site even though they no longer manufacture ereaders.

If you do want to use the Kobo desktop to read ePubs see these instructions (admittedly they are intended to let content creators test their ebooks but should work for you). Sideloading for Testing Purposes
You will have to copy the ePubs from the Calibre library to the correct folder on your computer.

Will this allow the books to sync reading position with the books on his Kobo? This is the feature that 69carat is looking for.

No.
Syncing to kobo hardware is done via kobo servers, which only sync books from kobo store.

To get sync, BUY the books.
