Excellent program. While some of the options are a bit obscure to find or work with, it will allow you to do nearly anything. The user manual needs serious work, making it a bit more difficult to learn how to do what you need; it's tech friendly but not particularly user-friendly. I still rate it 5 stars because of its wide range of features and options, the ability to edit eBooks directly, and its streaming library capabilities. Needs some user-friendly work but still an OUTSTANDING program.
I have been using calibre for the last week or so with mixed results. I selected it because of it's ability to connect to my eReader (Simple Nook) rather than to just be a catalog of eBooks on my computer. This allows my EPUB files to be moved between the Nook and my PC. When connected via a USB cable, the Nook is detected and an icon is added to the calibre menu bar (as well as an icon for the SD card installed in the Nook). Clicking on this "Device" icon displays a listing of the EPUB files on the Nook. However, not all of the files on the Nook are included. In my case, about 1/3 of the files on the Nook are not displayed. When reviewing the titles of the missing EPUB files, it appears these are files I downloaded directly to the Nook using its WiFi connection. Those files that I had previously transferred via USB from my PC to the Nook using the Adobe Digital Editions program are displayed. I can't tell if the Nook "hides" these files from being displayed for some reason, or if calibre just doesn't know how to find them. It's frustrating in either case. Calibre can display a marker to indicate which files in its main library are also present on the Nook, but this doesn't work properly because the Nook does not display all of its files. I really want to like this software, but this inability to see how my PC files and Nook files are synchronized is a real drawback. Am I missing something? Is there a way for calibre to display ALL of the files stored in my Nook?
