Why don't you do the initial synch from your pc to your phone via USB, and just do updates from a cloud service like OD or DB.

Excellent idea. I did not think of doing initial sync via USB, and now the sync to tablet is finished and to phone almost finished.

I have now:
Stopped Onedrive
Added book in Calibre
Started Onedrive
Onedrive sees the change and syncs in to the cloud
I open my tablet and see that Onedrive is syncing. I find the new book in the Calibre Library folder with the file manager (good) but I don't see the book when I open Calibre.

What to do to ensure Calibre knows a book has been added in its file structure? What to do to automate this?

It sounds as if you started Calibre before the sync finished. You must not start Calibre until the Metadata.db File has been synced as that controls what books Calibre shows.

I dont think so. Hovering the moue over the Onedrive icon showed Onedrive up to date. To be sure I paused Onedrive again on laptop cleaned the library with Calibre and closed Calibre. After resuming Onedrive it synced around 12 Mb of data. After this sync was finished I saw on the tablet that Onedrive was also syncing same 12Mb/ When it said Onedrive up to date I paused Onedrive and started Calibre. The book is still missing.

In that case there is a problem with OneDrive as it is the ‘metadata.db’ File that Control’s what books Calibre shows (and not the presence of the actual ebook files). If you are describing exactly what has happened then the changes made to metadata.db on the first computer are not being propagated to the second one. This normally means that either Calibre is still running on the first computer (and thus locking this file) or there has not been sufficient time allowed for this file to sync.

It is also worth noting that the ebook files can start syncing as soon as they are added to Calibre on the first machine, but the metadata.db File cannot be synced until Calibre has been closed down. It could also be worth checking that you have not ended up with a ‘conflicted’ version of this file on the two machines dues to timing issues when updating and then syncing.

Found the problem. Stupid mistake of me. On tablet Calibre looks for library on Onedrive. Should have been Onedrive\Calibre. Changed it. Everything works correctly now.

There is one important step missing.

After adding the book, stop Calibre. But I assume you did this...

Otherwise there will be problems syncing the database, since the database file is open.

Yes I did. Still some problems with my phone. I will try out a few more things and if I cannot solve it I come back with new questions

Thanks
