| Cache ||So I finally got around to trying Dropbox on my Forma. Im somewhat disappointed to be honest.
So getting an account is easy, though Dropbox does try and steer you into one of the paid options pretty hard. Its worth getting a referral link since its 500mb free for you and them.
Linking it with calibre is also easy just connect to folder and select the right one (this does have to be the one Kobo generates on your Dropbox your Forma doesnt see anything else).
So far so good right?
Well this is where the problems set in. Im aware Dropbox cant read kepub files which for me doesnt matter. I dont want it to read them I just want it to act as a middleman from my computer or whatever device to my Forma. I would have thought this would be a no brainer for this set up. After all it has the option to download the files.
Oh boy was I wrong. The first time you try to get a particular kepub over to your Forma it asks about being sure you want to download it because Dropbox cant open it. I was holding out some hope here. Sure itd be a pain to do bulk transfers this way but a few books here and there? No problem really. Still better than having to have my Forma plugged into my computer send the files over, eject it, wait for it to process and then enjoy my books.
But no. I have no idea where it tries to send the kepubs, syncing briefly shows finishing download of file name.
But nothing appears in my books and nothing seems to have been written to the Kobo (plugging it in didnt show anything unless its buried somewhere).
The first time I tried this converting the books to kepub in the transfer the second time I converted them on my computer.
I then tried ePub which did work though series data wasnt sent over, everything else seems to have been as the covers do display along with the author.
In the end this is disappointing Im somewhat surprised Kobo wouldnt ensure their native format would be able to transfer using this method. I can forgive the series info not syncing as even directly putting it on the Kobo requires reconnecting it I believe.
I will not be using this feature until/unless kepub is actually supported. If Ive missed something please let me know.|

| Cache ||I need to replace my kobo Glo cover as it is in really bad shape, and Ive been looking in ebay, but I havent found a cover for the Glo, I suppose since it is an old model they dont make this cover anymore, but I found several for the Glo HD.
Does anyone know if they are similar in size and if I can buy a cover made for the Glo HD and it will fit on the Glo?
The one I have was the slim one from gecko with Auto Wake-Up/Sleep function, and Im looking for something similar, any help will be appreciated.|
