ePub unmanifested files

I apologize if this question has been asked before. I've been researching for HOURS and I can't find an answer! Forgive my n00biness, please...

I am attempting to upload an .epub file on lulu.com. The file was originally a word doc, and I converted it using Calibre. I imported the file into my iTunes and it appears perfectly in my iBooks app on my iPhone. It passed the validation on threepress. But when I upload it, I get an error that there are unmanifested files.

I downloaded Sigil, but I can't figure out what I need to change in the code in order to make it work. Any suggestions??

Calibre's convenient, but its output always needs work to produce a professional result. An unmanifested file is a file that's present in the archive but not present in the manifest section of the .opf file in the epub. You need to take a look inside the epub and check what's there.

Do I look at it inside Sigil, or a different program?

A text editor (not word) will do... I use TextWrangler for MAC

The file comes up as jibberish in TextWrangler.

You've got to unzip it first. It's a zip file renamed .epub. If you edit or change anything, you'll need to rezip it. Take a look around the forums, there are some simple GUI utilities for doing it reliably.

Awesome - finally got into the .opf file. And now I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking for. If anyone wants to tell me what I need to change, I'd be forever grateful!!!

Just opening the epub in Sigil and then saving it discards unmanifested files. So do that.

Thanks everyone! I finally got it to work. Yay for Calibre, yay for Sigil, and boo for Lulu for not accepting perfectly good epub files.

Well, technically, the file wasn't "perfectly good". The manifest in the .opf file is suppose to list every single file in the archive. So chances are, some files were sitting around that were not listed in the manifest.

Without the help of Sigil, you would have needed to manually look through the folders and make sure that each file was included in the .opf manifest list.

Of course, the question now is, what files did Sigil automatically discard, and did they include useful information?

Yep, I'm on a mac.

I know there were unmanifested files, but what was annoying to me was the file worked perfectly on my iPhone, and yet Lulu wouldn't accept it. I eventually ended up starting the whole process over - converting to .html from .doc, then converting to epub in Calibre, then using the epub-fix from Calibre in the terminal, then finishing the clean up in Sigil. Quite a process! Sheesh, I practically wrote my book in less time than it took for me to get it online!

Thanks everyone! I would have gone crazy without your help.

It's probably the invisible Mac files then, I forget the names at the moment, the ones that get created in every folder.

If the EPUB was ever opened in Calibre's reader then the extraneous file was probably the Calibre bookmark file. If the EPUB is destined for publication you probably would not want that file left in the EPUB in any case?
