    Manually deleted external content still showing up

      Hello,

       

      I used the Calibre program to load some books onto my Nook Simple Touch and have been going in circles ever since. First, the books were showing up in double, which I was finally able to resolve. Then I found that only part of the books showed up after I edited the metadata. After this I decided to just delete everything in the "books" folder under "my files." Well, the deleted books are still showing up on the device, but not in the "books" folder when I click on it.

       

      That being the case, I tried to load everything from Calibre fresh, but the books are again showing up as 2 copies. Now, when I try to delete one of the two in Calibre, everything disappears from the "books" folder on the Nook.

       

      I'd like to get the books still showing up on the device off, and then load the complete library back onto the Nook from Calibre. Hope my words aren't too convoluted, as this is very confusing and frustrating.

       

      Thanks for any help in advance.:smileyhappy:

          How did you delete the files off your NST?  Did you use Calibre or did you just open the folder and hilight-delete?  I see there is a folder marked 'metadata.calibre' and another marked 'driveinfo.calibre', did you do anything with those when you deleted the books?
