The first time I synced (when v1.0 was released), I guessed it was a one-time affair: it took about 30-45 minutes.

Today, I am re-syncing the same list (I have added some new books to it: 25-30 more). Its been half an hour, and all I'm waiting for it to somehow get over.



Is it just me....? :unsure:

No, you're not the only one. Mine gets stuck at 41% and goes nowhere for over an hour. I was getting very excited about this... and it does look really good... but beginning to think it won't work for me.

I looked into it.
There's currently a bug in ComicRack when synchronizing multiple files with the same meta data (duplicates). At every sync new duplicates are created. When you browse your device from the computer you can spot these groups of invalid files (if you experience this bug).

Syncing new books is not the fastest thing in the world. To move on book from pc to tablet (with coversion etc.) takes about 3 seconds on my machine. The next sync should be done very fast because only NEW books are copied again to the device.

Same here it got stuck at 41% and then just decided to give up and transfer manually (this was on my 1st transfer so no duplicates)

Let's turn the question around: Anyone is playing in my speed league?

About the 41%: At 41% the first file is actually copied to your device. So it seems copying is somehow not working? Do you use MTP or Disk Drive?

Not quite sure I understand the question, could you elaborate on MTP/Disk Drive?

However the answer I believe to be Disk Drive

How did you connect your device? Phone or Tablet? Did your phone show up as a disk drive in explorer?

AND:
I got the bug now nailed down. If you've pages marked as deleted in your library, the back compare in sync fails and the book is copied again to the phone (and actually creating a copy). The weekend release will fix this.

I'm mounting my android tablet via usb and have followed the instructions (the device shows as disk drive in explorer - a couple of times it didn't, so I restarted and all fine. When it wasn't showing up I couldn't pair or synchronise anyway). When it gets to 41% and 'hangs' I find there are quite a lot of comics copied over, but by no means all. So there is copying going on. Sounds like it could well be the issue of multiple files the same. I don't understand "meta-data" very well - is there a quick way to spot repeated files and get rid of them?, as they seem a little pointless anyway?? Thanks.

Device: Phone
OS: CM7.1 (which opens up a can of worms regarding USB1 speed rather than USB2 speed)
Connection: Disk drive in explorer
