I'm loving the Andriod app even without the sync working for me (in any way), its hands down the best app, i've used and this is after using perfect viewer for ages, I love the options for stacking, (though sometimes the options are a bit awkward to select, which might be down to my device), and the way it uses all my comic rack metadata, which kinda justifies all the effort i put in organising my lists and scraping my data..

Hello,

I just bought the full version. Here is my experience so far.

My whole comics library is located on a pc running windows server 2003 R2, i've been sharing this library online with success and use comicrack on my tablet running windows 7.

When it comes to Android, i've got a desire HD running leedroid 4.0 beta (android 2.3.5 & Sense 3.0)

I'm not able to pair it with the server, it simply crash comicrack without showing any device. I've paired it with comicrack running on my tablet and it seems to work. At least, it shows my android device, offer me a list of items to sync but then, whenever i choose library or any items in the smart list, nothing happens, the apps on the android device is empty.

Is it possible that it's not able to sync a remote library with the phone ?

I couldn't test the USB connection as for some unknown reason, my phone stays in disk drive mode and i'm unable to sync with USB but that's another story

Thanks

Syncing works for all devices.
Especially I can not really think of any reason why ComicCrack should crash.
Maybe you've some funny hd/usb devices connected to this machine. When pairing (and syncing) ComicRack searches all removable media.

On my machine I have a USB card reader that does not recover correctly from suspend. If connected, ComicRack searches for ever for devices (But of course, Explorer crashes also when browsing the device).

i was more thinking of an OS related issue (win server 2K3)

resume works, no exotic devices on the server, only HD.

Thanks for sending the report.

From what I see, it seems Win2K3 misses the Windows Portable Devices (WPD) component which ComicRack uses to talk to MTP devices.

Because this is missing, it crashes before getting to the wireless part. Next version will gracefully ignore this.

looking for Comic rack 0.9.146, listed as needed to request sync from the mobile device, but I can't find it to download it. As a side note, now that I can request a sync from the device, it would be nice for me to be able to choose which list(s) I want to sync from the device, as opposed to just from the desktop. I know that is a lot more complicated, but it would be nice to see someday. Love the app, keep up the great work

That is the problem. version 1.17 of the android app which I just installed says it needs 146, but I don't see it posted. I was hoping to get an eta on when it would be available.

ComicRack 0.9.146 will be released tomorrow.
I'm amazed how fast the android updates get pushed to the devices :)
