Calibre 0.7.18 slow importing .... I mean slug through the salt flats slow = /
I got a Kindle 3, and through various postings found Calibre to be the only real player in the ebook field. I was actually pretty OK with that, as I have heard many favorable things about Calibre. Setup was painless and it immediately recognized my kindle 3. The problem started when I tried to import my relatively large Ebook collection. I am trying to import 5,000 + or - at a time.
While it is importing it pegs the processor .... I mean everything it can get up to 99 percent, as well as maxing out the memory.I have a rather extensive collection of books and that was only one folder. The problem being that it took 3 days to import those, and I have 6-7 other folders I would like in the database with similar size and structure.
My system is relatively old but still pretty snappy
Wow , as it turns out it was just an older version. I posted on the mobileread.com forum , and kovidgoyal who is the creator of Calibre got back to me within 1/2 an hour! That guy is truly a class act.
