Ok, so I'm at my wit's end here on this issue and it's driving me crazy. First the basic facts.

PC-Side
Windows Vista Business 32-bit
Comic Rack 0.9.154 32 bit

Android-Side
Motorola Xoom
Ice Cream Sandwich V. 4.0.4
ComicRack for Android V1.62 Full version

I was having some issues where the synchronizing wasn't working properly. It claimed to do stuff, but it didn't remove the files that were no longer in the sync lists. TO try to deal with this, I restarted ComicRack on the PC and rebooted my tablet. No luck.

So then I went and unpaired the device with my computer. I figured I'd re-pair it and then sync again. However, I can't get it to show up now when I try to pair the devices. It searches for connected devices and finds nothing.

I have since rebooted my PC and my tablet, no luck. Uninstall the app on the tablet and reinstalled it, no luck. Then I went and read the forums for a bit, but I can't seem to find anyone with this issue. I did try adding my tablet's IP address to the comicRack.ini but still no luck.

I'm really hoping someone can help me out with this, I really want to keep reading my comics.

Update:
Installed Comicrack on my Galaxy Nexus and tried pairing that. That worked and is currently syncing. Maybe I need to wipe my tablet completely.

Sorry about the problems.

Delete your comic folder.
Select select it a new from the CRA (you can after that try to either restart the phone or kill the comicrack:wifi service).
Pair anew.

Ok, wiped out my comics directory and reinstalled CRA again, since I'd already uninstalled it before you responded. Got back into the app, which for some reason was a pain, but it loaded and has now paired with my computer. It's currently working on synchronizing, hasn't popped a percentage yet, hopefully this is it now.


Update: It's syncing, gonna take awhile, but it's working nice now. Thanks for the help. I love ComicRack and have recommended it to everyone I know who reads comics.

Try to restart CRA and also try to stop the comicrack:wifi service on your device. Then start CRA again.

i'Ve got it to work, kind of:

i added the devie manually by adding the ip to the comicrack.ini. now it shows up and i can synch by clicking the "sync devices" in CR. but still won't work with the CRA "Wifi sync" button.. but i can live with that

so maybe you should try this..
