Read on one of the threads that removing "Ad Blocker" resolves the issue. Unfortunately this did not work for me. Is there any log or debug info that could identify the problem? Can't imagine life without kindle import!

I used Caliber to convert the files and then used Kindle import.
The Loading Books seemed to work fine, so did Import Books.
But the files never showed up in the .palmkindle folder.
I rebooted the deveice but still no luck.

Any ideas?

Once you convert the books in calibre you need to attach your touchpad via USB, select the books in calibre, and click on 'send to device'. At this point the books should be in the .palmkindle folder and you can use kindle import to load then import the books into the kindle application.

Every time I try to send to device from calibre i get this error message

The reader has no storage card in this slot.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 81, in run
File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\device.py", line 405, in _upload_books
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\usbms\driver.py", line 252, in upload_books
File "site-packages\calibre\devices\usbms\device.py", line 979, in _sanity_check
ValueError: The reader has no storage card in this slot.

And when I transfer it manually via USB to the correct folder click "load new books" it says no new books to import.

any ideas?

Anyone has problem with Kindle Import recently.
I cannot get it working now, since a week or fortnight ago.
Each time when I tried either Load-existing books or Import-new-books, it said Operation failed and then went to Operation in Progress and got stuck there.

I have since deleted it and/or my Amazon Kindle, restarted the Touchpad, reloaded either one or both of them, restarted. But still get the same issue.

Never had any problem with it since I first got and use Kindle Import in Sep 2011. I do not use Calibre but only computer to import mobi files into the .palmkindle folder.

Anyone has this problem recently, or know how to fix it? Has something changed?

I have got my books moved over and they load onto the Touchpad using Kindle Import, but I can't seem to get the cover art to come up. They show in the metadata in Calibre, but will not show in the Kindle app? Any suggestions for a Ubuntu user?

I am having this issue all of a sudden too. Was able to import a book last week and wanted to upload the 2nd book of the series and I get the same issues quoted above. I have been using Calibre for a long time and this is the first issue I have had with Kindle Import not working. I have done multiple restarts, luna restarts, deletions and installation, via Preware and WOSQI. Very strange.

Thanks for any ideas.

I have recently bought an HP Touchpad here in the UK. There is no kindle app in the HP Apps catalogue so I downloaded the kindle app via Preware. When I launch the App from the books section I first see the Instal window. The application installs ok, and is replaced by another window with "Launch" "remove" buttons. I then load the kindle ap and it says "Operation failed" followed by "Operation in progress" and nothing happens.

I am a novice in computer things but is there an idiots guide as to how to overcome this problem. I have seen it mentioned on previous threads and tried all the suggested remedies without success.

Can anyone help

I think you are getting confused. You need the Kindle app from the catalogue before you load the Kindle Import app from Preware.

Since you live in the UK, the actual Kindle app isn't offered. So, do a Google search for the .Ipk and install it manually. If you can't find it, I've got a copy somewhere.

Hi,
I am having a similar problem in Australia. Kindle Import installs but fails to Launch. So unable to import any books through Calibre.
No amount of reboots and reinstalls has helped so far.
Any suggestions on what I could be doing wrong or what to try next.
Thanks.

Is there a way to recieve an email with a mobi and add it to kindle library so as to not require connecting TP to network or PC?

Is there a way to remove the empty margin from mobi/kindle books? The same epub book on preader doesn't have this.

Hi,

Know this is a little off-topic; but any of you guys think the Kindle Import app might be any help getting Kindle up & going on the Pre 3.

Any thoughts would be appreciated...

Thanks.

This randomly stopped working today. Calibre copies the files and Import says they're put in Kindle, but the Kindle library is blank. Thoughts?

The link isn't working for the kindleside.zip file. Would someone mind uploading it, please?
