Kobo Libra H20 (FW 4.26.16704) does not index/show my ePubs

I have been using a Kobo Aura for years and uploaded epubs to /mnt/sd/book to its sdcard using the USB cable, later using KOReader OPDS. The most recent firmware does index and show the epubs in /mnt/sd/book. Now I bought a Kobo Libra H20 and it does not have an external SD card reader, but there is still a folder /mnt/sd. However, the built-in Kobo Reader does not index or show any of my epubs in /mnt/sd/book or in /mnt/onboard/book. Is that a limitation of the Libra H20? It works fine on the...

Libra: Best way to load 100 books from SD card?

Ok,now here is the problem. I have about 100 3rd party (non protected) books, mainly EPUBS, few pdfs on an SD card from my Kobo Glo. How the heck do I add them to my Libra? I know I can Drag & Drop them in a batch by having the SD card in my PC and connecting Libra to PC. But is there a better way, or is that just as good? If I drag & drop will the Libra still report my reading progress, book covers etc..? I mainly have the different novel series in different folders on the SD card, then...

Libra & PDFs --- my review

So, after all the threads and replies.... thanks everyone. I got the Libra. Worrisome start with power adaptor issues, but seems to be working normal with a samsung wall charger. Screen without a light on is a little darker than I thought and remember on eReaders (kinda grey/olive) But.... PDFs Surprise surprise, in Landscape my chess PDF book is completely readable ! even the small chess diagrams are clear. I do find the text in the PDF a little light in places. Nothing is too small. BUT...

Libra - connecting to PC -- There Was A Problem With This Drive ???

So, after the new Libra not liking the power adaptor i used with the Glo, and working with the samsung of same ratings... Now this.... I plugged the Libra into the PC using the USB cord. I get the Connect message on the Libra. I click connect. Libra shows Connected & Charging PC displays message : There was a Problem (or error, can't remember) with this Drive. It asks If I want to Scan & Fix. I don't know what to do now. I just wanted to drag&drop a pdf on.

My ONE remaining Concern getting an eReader (LIBRA)

So, I guess I found the root of what's making me indecisive about Libra/Forma... or any at all. I'm leaning to the Libra, mainly because I don't like all the negative hardware reviews on the forma. That said --- It's how PDFs are handled. My only worry (since the beginning) is reading PDF on Libra. I've seen plenty of MAnga videos with the Libra, and it's mainly fine. Good. But, PDF..... I mentioned this somewhere but didn't get an answer... Even on my PC, when reading a PDF, you have t...

Forma/Libra: Any comparison photos of Same book on BOTH these readers?

Hi again all. As to my trying to decide Forma vs Libra, if the $110 extra is worth it for little more viewing space.... I'm trying to find a photo or vid (so far no luck) showing the SAME book displayed on a Forma beside a Libra I know I can turn a Libra landscape and basically get the same viewing width as the Forma (yes?) but I'm trying to get a sense of comparable difference. I've given up trying to compare a Mass Market book to the display on a forma or libra. --- boiled down, I'm tryin...

Forma or Libra -- Current State of these units? (I want one)

Hi everyone, thanks for the add. The short.., I've had a few older Kobos, never really used much. My fault, not the Kobo (I actually really like the product & the idea.) I want to really embrace the idea of the ereader environment now. Especially since I saw the Forma and Libra. Where I am, it would cost me around $235 for a Libra and $345 for an 8gb Forma. It's the upper upper end of where I want to be, but willing to make the commitment. I've been back and forth on which one... HOWEVER.....

Libra H2O or Oasis

Hello guys, I'm new to the forum, I've been using the Kindle (8th gen) for more than 2 years now and I would like to upgrade to a new device. Was thinking about PW but then I found about about Kobo and Libra H2O which brings me to the dilemma from the subject. I've read more than a few discussions on benefits of both devices so I'll keep it short and ask you what would you choose if the price for Oasis is around 160 € (with the trade in and 20 % discount) and for Libra is 200 €? I can buy ...

Device ejects on its own

My Kobo will not stay connected to my computer. Is anyone else having or ever heard of this issue? I just purchased the Kobo Libra H2O (from Amazon) It will not stay connected to My Mac. This doesn't happen with any of my other devices or peripherals. I tried 3 different cables with the same result. Libra ejects with Mac message "disk not ejected properly". This happens whether Calibre is open or not. I initially thought it might be a conflict issue with Kobo and Calbre, being they're not mate...

Apparently unique footnote problem

Before you say search the forums or Google, trust me, I have. For about four total hours. I'm finding no one else with the issue I have. :headscratch: So, I have a Kobo Libra H20 running Koreader. Everything works great except footnotes. I really want the popup footnotes at the bottom, but with only one exception (I'll get to that) when I set it to popup footnotes, I get only the number of the footnote and an otherwise blank box. If I turn popup footnotes back off, they link to the footnotes ...

Help in converting Kindle book to ePub

Hey there everyone, my apologies if this isn't the correct thread. I've recently decided to ditch my kindle, and extract my family from the Amazon ecosystem. :) I bought a Kobo Libra, and am trying to convert my kindle books to ePub. I've gotten almost 100% there, and able to load the books onto the Libra, but am having one (minor) challenge. All of the books that I convert and load onto the Libra have a very small number, which sequentially increases on the right side of some of the pages. ...

What are the benefits of Calibre converting epub to kepub?

I'm both new to the e-reader world and Calibre. I installed Calibre 5.9.0 and a buncha plugins for use with my recently purchased Kobo Libra H2O: Kobo utilities Kobo touch extended KePub metadata reader/writer I tried comparing a few epubs transferred to the Libra twice: once by coping the files directly, renaming them to kepub.epub; and by converting them to kepub by Calibre. I also tried to diff the two files, which shows some significant changes to formatting. ( I set Calibre's Common Op...

[HOWTO] Create your own native development environment on your Kobo!

Hi, It's been a while since I last posted, but now I think I have something to share with you. Those last months, I wasn't finding any interesting books to read and started to find my Kobo just ... boring. And I thought 'then maybe some hacking could be fun' and here I am with this guide. It will help you set up Alpine Linux with gcc, g++ or clang to develop custom applications for your Kobo. I didn't worked out how to run X yet, but maybe I will in the future. Then you could use them (if they a...

USB-C/Micro USB adapter for Kobo?

My Libra refuses to connect to my newest laptop (Dell) via two different USB-C/USB adapters. Which, I should mention, my Oasis has no problem with. Can anyone recommend a USB-C/micro USB adapter suitable for a Kobo? My Dell only has USB-C ports. There are various adapters available all over the net, but I'm not sure which of them (if any) would work with a Kobo.

Oasis 3, Forma, or Libra?

Hi, folks. I've read a couple of hundred of your posts on these, but still torn. I have some ideas and questions. 1. Me : My vision isn't very good. Large text will be nice. I'll probably read in a variety of lighting situations. I'm in the USA. 2. Cost : These are close enough in price that I'm basically setting it aside. Especially because Oasis is on sale right now. 3. Content & sources : Mostly novels, history, and philosophy. Some essays and articles. Court decisions would be nice. Those...

Better contrast on GloHD screen compared to Libra H20?

Last week I 'upgraded' my GloHD to a LibraH20. I'm happy with the big screen, buttons, and Overdrive support. However, the contrast on my Libra's screen is not nearly as good as on the GloHD. On the GloHD, I read most of the time without the frontlight on at all (I find this more comfortable), but on the Libra, I find I have to use the frontlight almost all the time, unless I'm reading outdoors. Are others experiencing this difference too? I'm guessing this is because of the Libra's capacitive...

Libra Please help...is this a bug?...should I return this Libra?

I really like the Kobo Libra, but I wonder if this one is faulty... and so, if you recommend it, I'll return or exchange this one, BUT I have only 2 days left in a 30 day return window to do so... ...the problem is the Libra's screen has started refreshing (that is, flashing a reverse image of the current page) each time it goes to sleep and also when it wakes up--this is regardless of the refresh page setting. The refresh setting works fine otherwise. I've tried changing refresh page rates w...

Libra New Libra owner guidance re registering, connectivity, patches

First excuse my ignorance and if I'm posting in the wrong section of the forum. My new Libra sits in the box in front of me after a battery charge. I've read the tips and tricks thread and a few others on the first three pages. I'm typically aggressive in terms of owning and controlling hardware I purchase. I've definitely cracked open and flashed ota or soldered jtag to accomplish this or that. Still I purchased from kobo because to me they seemed the least "evil" of the bunch, hehe. 1) this th...

New to Kobo with 1 important question

I decided on & purchased a Kobo Libra last week and really like it. I started by looking online at a lot of eReaders and read many website eReader reviews. I finally decided & purchased the Libra based on solid technical information here on mobileread.com including how to customize a Kobo and load epub books onto one, but oddly enough, the one question & answer I couldn't find was maybe the most obvious one... ...QUESTION: between the Libra, Forma, Paperwhite and Oasis, with their seemingly mi...

Libra Simple and easy way to get books from Calibre

I'm a long time Calibre user who never own any physical ebook readers until now :D. Just got my Libra H2O from Prime Day, so far quite happy with it.

Of cause you have got a running Calibre somewhere on your home network already, WiFi accessible, and the Content Server service is running, and y...

Just ordered a Kobo Libra H2O

I've had a Kindle Keyboard for the last 10yrs or so, really wanted an Oasis but couldn't justify the price. I used the KK off and on, liked it but I didn't usually have time to read during the day. I do now and the Libra allows me to read at night without waking the wife :2thumbsup. The Libra looks like what I need. I have installed Calibre (4.32) and installed the KoboTouchExtended, DeDRM, Kobo Books, Kobo Utilities and Obok DeDRM plugins. I really only had a handful of books purchased from th...

KOReader: Dropbox: Fail

I installed KOReader on my new Libra and am still exploring it. I tried activating the DropBox access. I put the token (long stream of letters and digits) into the box and hit go. I just got a dialogue about 'no such folder' or something similar. Does it actually work? I wondered if the wifi was off when I tried to activate it but I think it was on. All my books are on DropBox so its important to be able to access it. i since discovered an email from DropBox checking it was me... Perhaps I shou...

Forma or Libra

So, my Kobo Aura One's screen just went bad yesterday. I've had it for 4 years and have loved it. I love the large screen size, especially. I am looking for a replacement and trying to decide on the Forma or the Libra. I see the Libra is newer and from what I can tell in the forum, perhaps slightly better quality. But, it would mean downgrading my screen size. I like the larger screen, because it gives more real estate for bumping up my font size so that I can read at night without my glasses...

Libra Kepub fast page turn stuck?

I decided to start another re-read of Buss's translation of Monte Cristo. I bought it on my Kindle several years ago, and read the Calibre-converted kepub on my H2O2 without incident. Today, I decided to skip through the introduction, foreword etc, taking advantage of the kepub fast page turn. Except, it got stuck. The Libra raced through the book and did not respond to either screen touches or button presses. I only stopped it by pressing the power button. When I turned it back on, I found th...

Libra vs. Forma

I have been for the most part enjoying the software experience on my Libra H2O over the past couple of months. (While I have overwhelmingly used Kindles in the past, I did use the Aura H2O for a short period in 2016). I am now wondering if I should have gone for the Forma instead. Obviously I know it has a larger, and flush, screen and the potential for more storage with a 32gb version. Overall, would people say the Forma has a more premium feel than the Libra? (Although the Libra is said to be...

Libra eInk screen drastically slowing down when exposed to not-so-cold temps

Hi, I was wondering if this was normal : I got a Libra H2O working OK and all, but the thing is: the eInk screen drastically slows down when exposed not so cold-temperatures, e. g. 58-60 °F / 16 °C. For example, when I refresh the screen when reading a book at room temp (71 °F / 22 °C, normally it takes about 1/8th of a second. At 59 °F / 15 °C, it takes one second or even more. If the temperature drops even below things don't improve. So... should I return my Kobo and ask for a new one witho...

kobo Libra keeps dropping telnet

I have recently learned how to ssh into my Kobo Libra. I use Nickel Menu to launch the service and find my IP. However after 30 seconds of access, the connection is dropped. I try to restart it from Nickel Menu but the IP does not show. Rebooting the Kobo is the only way to gain another 30 seconds of access. Any suggestions?
