I've been trying for days, but no luck getting comics to display in the app on my Amazon Fire 7th Gen tablet, via the SDCARD.

Ive chosen the directory as the secondary location, but I get nothing. The only way i can get comics to appear,
is by putting it on the Fire main storage area, NOT the sdcard.

Anyone know how to make this work?

thanks,

Win

I believe this has to do with what generation of Android you are running and the permissions it gives the ComicRack Application.
Try using /storage/extSDCard/Android/data/com.cyo.comicrack.viewer/files as your Location.

Set Ext SdCard as Comic Location

Having a very weird issue, after getting comics loaded on to the fire. Everything worked fine for 2 weeks or so. I was able to load and remove comics after reading them. Suddenly I went to load a few more comics, and noticed the directory was empty. I thought perhaps I had selected the wrong folder. I checked the FIRE, and noticed the comics were still loaded on the unit. Still, the directory was showing as empty. I then proceeded to load about 17 new comics, and when done all of the previous comics, and the new comics were showing on the FIRE tablet.

The noticed the problem after I turned off the FIRE tablet, and tried to read some comics. ONLY the newly loaded comics were available to read. All the previous comics were missing from the FIRE tablet.

The second strange thing i noticed was that it seems as if the previous comics are still on the FIRE tablet, because the memory usage doesn't seem to have decreased. Further, when I try to re-load some of the previous comics, I get an error. (pic attached)

Normally when trying to load a comic that already exists, you get a message asking if you want to replace an existing file. I'm just getting a strange error saying that the "device has stopped responding may be be disconnected". If I load a new comic, it works just fine.

Anyone else experienced this issue, or know a way around it?

thanks,

Winston

How are you loading them on? I know I had issues with the Paid version and Sync that it wouldn't recognize the files were there until it finished the sync.

Just like there is an XML file that lists for Windows what files are in your library, there is also one on Android. More than likely, this file was corrupted when adding or removing new comics.

Another thing to take into account is File Length. Your Example showed a file that was 45 characters long. Add on the directory /storage/extSDCard/Android/data/com.cyo.comicrack.viewer/files and you've got a name that might be too long for your Fire to handle. Use Library Organizer to clean/shorten your filenames.

Also, I'd recommend exporting to CBZ as you don't know if the CBR is Solid.

Thanks for the reply. I'm manually loading and removing the files. I navigate to the directory, and drag and drop my files.
Obviously I've not thought of the file length issue, and I'll keep an eye on that. I'm not at all familiar with "Library Organizer", that you mentioned. I've also just noticed that 90% of my files are in fact CBR format. You suggest converting to CBZ?

So i guess i;m going to have to reformat this SD card, because all the older comics aren't showing up, but they still
taking up the space on the SD card. I guess i can try to uninstall the ComicRack app, and re-install it first?

thanks again for the suggestions.
