Hi,
I'm using the latest full version of ComicRack on Android Gingerbread. All my comics are manually transferred and named for example 'Great Teacher Onizuka 01.zip'. I'm not using syncing at all because I don't use the windows version of ComicRack (yet).
When I reboot my device while ComicRack is running in the background, after the device has fully rebooted and I restart ComicRack, all my reading positions are lost - every comic appears as if it has not been started.
This is happening on both my devices: a GalaxyTab and a HTC DesireS.
I've experimented by force closing ComicRack prior to rebooting, and this seems to solve the problem for some reason.
I'm not sure, but could the reboot be preventing ComicRack from exiting properly so the reading positions are not saved?

Has anyone else seen a problem like this?

The reading positions are saved in a database. So they *should* always be properly stored.

Are the comics on the external sdcard?

Yes, I keep them all on the external sd card on both devices: '/mnt/sdcard/Manga' on the Desire, and '/mnt/sdcard/external_sd/Manga' on the GalaxyTab.

I'm wondering if you are able to replicate the problem on your device?

Just had the positions lost again on my Desire, but I didn't reboot. I was using ComicRack about 6 hours ago, and when went back to it just now the positions are all lost. One thing I did notice was that ComicRack took significantly longer on its startup screen with the logo and progress bar, as if it was doing more work than a normal startup/launch. I'm going to keep watching and see if I can determine what actions are causing this.

Would be nice.
These are the things that never happen on my device.

I've been installing the updates as you release them and I have not lost my positions since my last post 3 days ago. Hopefully the problem is fixed now :)
If it happens again I'll let you know.

So, I hate to say it but I'm having the same problem. I'm running Honeycomb on an Archos 80 G9 tablet, and when I have to reboot, Comic rack loses all of it's data concerning comics I've read and the last reading position. I have comic rack 1.46. I keep all of my comics on an sd card, mounted at mnt/sdcard/Mangas. Is there anything else I can do to help you fix this?

Hi again,
After about 1 week without any problems on both my devices, I rebooted my Desire S last night and all the reading positions were lost.:(
I had been thinking the bug had been fixed in one of the recent updates, however it looks like it is still there. I'm currently using version 1.46.

Like I said in a previous post, every time I have lost my positions ComicRack took much longer on the startup/loading screen than normal. It is like it is doing more work than normal while loading. During a usual load, ComicRack takes less than a second on the startup/loading screen; however the load before positions are lost takes about 4-5 seconds.

I'm wondering if this problem could be related to manually transferring the comics, not using ComicRack on the PC?
Not the ideal solution, but would there be a way to backup the database that contains the reading positions so in the event of a crash they could be manually restored by the user?

Some questions:

* Do you also lose ratings and page type changes?
* Do you only lose settings if the eComics are on the external sd?
* Do all eComics lose the info?
* Do you also lose the info if you "quit" ComicRack before rebooting?

Yes to all of the questions except for the the one about when the comics aren't on the sd card, I haven't tried moving them to the internal storage. But I don't have much space on my internal storage, so this wouldn't be something I'd realistically do.
