Problem with epub files on Nook Simpletouch
Jun 9th, 2013 at 1:17pm
 
I've run into a problem with a couple of epubs downloaded from the archive - Mr. Beeto's two works, which are possibly the longest on the site.

In both cases the epub version worked fine in Calibre on my PC, but the epub wouldn't open on the nook, it just went back to library view after a couple of seconds.

My fix was to convert them to mobi format, delete the epub versions, then convert the mobi versions back to epub. When I uploaded them to the Nook again they were fine, and I now have no problem.

I've tried shorter stories (e.g. my own The Return) and they're OK, so I think the problem is length related. Not a biggie, I solved it in about ten minutes once I realised they wouldn't open, but maybe the settings used for this could be tweaked in some way to make things work better?

I'll look into it - but you're probably right in that it's length or file size related.

Calibre fixed it anyway so it isn't a huge problem, but I thought that you should be aware.
