Where are all my books in my calibre library???
I opened calibre for the first time in several months and discovered that all my library is no longer there. I am not sure where it all went to as I have not been deleting things off my HDD on my computer!
I am using a sony ereader, PSR 650 with calibre. Is it possible to import all my books that are on my reader back into the calibre library? I am afraid of loosing all my books on my ereader when I sync up with calibre.
Any thoughts would be appreciated

In my experience calibre will not delete any of your books from your Sony unless you tell it to, and yes you can copy them to a new library if you have somehow deleted your original one
To be doubly sure, you can also copy the books from the Sony to your HD without using calibre and have an extra backup.

Calibre Library Deleted Lost
Just wanted to encourage you to not give up searching. Your library of missing books are most likely somewhere on your HD (hard drive).
I re loaded all my books from my Kindle 3Gen to my Mac desktop Calibre library with no problems now. Like you I was concerned I was wasting time.
It was time consuming double-checking that each ebook or doc was where I wanted it. Not all items are in sync for me. Items on my desktop (Calibre or Kindle for MAC) and items on my ereader (Kindle 3Gen) are different. I would think that duplicating the entire Sony ereader contents to your desktop and or HD will allow you to duplicate to the Calibre library.
