Hi -- I'm a newbie here. I'm actually a computer repair person, but never in my career have I worked with the Apple operating system or Android, so I'm having a little bit of trouble considering the lack of info provided with my 3 day old purchase of the Nexus 7.
This forum has been really helpful, but I do have a question that requires a bit of hand holding, as even after reading articles and such, I seem unable to find a solution.
I use Calibre on my personal computers, and have an extensive ebook library in the .mobi (Amazon) format. I downloaded the Amazon Kindle app for Nexus 7, and there does not appear to be a way to get it to search the fixed storage area of the Nexus 7, so that app is worthless except for new purchases, which I usually do from the computer (so I can remove the DRM and save the files).
I did read an article which informed me that I should download an app called "Cool Reader" which is capible of browsing the fixed storage of the Nexus 7 and loading my books from a library folder. However, although I made a folder called "EBOOKS" off the root (I think) via USB connection to my personal computer, Cool Reader does not seem to be able to see the folder.
I also downloaded an app called "Dropbox" in which I created an "EBOOKS" folder. When I look in Dropbox, I see some of the test ebooks I transferred over via Dropbox, but cannot find the folder through Cool Reader.
Am I doing something stupid or wrong here? I'm not afraid to do some reading, but I'm pretty much at the end of my resouces at this point, and any assistance would be appreciated, as I purchased the Nexus 7 to also eventually replace the Kindle.
