The cool thing of ComicRack for Android is that you can synchronize smart lists automatically with ComicRack for Windows. Synchronizing has the following advantages to manually copying the files:
  • You have direct access to your synchronized smart/reading lists
  • The eComics are automatically converted and optimized so ComicRack for Android can display them fast and reliable
  • Reading stats and positions, bookmarks and ratings are synchronized back to ComicRack for Windows
  • You can read all your eComics on your handheld as PDFs, CB7, CBR, DJVU, CBT and WebComics get automatically converted and optimized
For synchronization you need at least ComicRack for Windows Build 0.9.144 and up. Following steps are required for synchronization:
  1. Connect your Android device to your PC with the USB cable. Pre Honeycomb devices (phones) have to be mounted as disks (or MTP mode if available). Tablets automatically mount in MTP mode. Note that you must have run ComicRack on the device at least once.
  2. In ComicRack for Windows open the "Devices Dialog" and press the "Pair with Device" button. ComicRack will now search for valid devices. After your device has been found you can pair ComicRack with it. You can pair multiple devices with ComicRack.
  3. Now select the lists you want to synchronize. On the right you can additionally for each list define if only unread eComics should be transferred to the handheld device.
  4. Close the dialog
  5. Select the "Synchronize Devices" command. If this is the first time and you have selected lots of eComics this can take some time. In the future ComicRack will only copy changed or new eComics to the device.

Here is a screencast explaining all the above-mentioned steps:

Some people have reported that turning off USB debugging made their device searchable. Maybe it was the factor..? :unsure:

Nope, the USB debugging is on. I just removed the USB cable, replugged it and it worked.

I've also found that if it is stuck searching for device, unplug and reconnect USB. WOrks a treat after that.

Not sure if this is possible, but is there a way I an keep the folder structure while syncing from Windows to Android?

For example:

On Windows
C:\Comics\DC Comics\Batman\Batman #608.cbz
C:\Comics\DC Comics\Batman\Batman #609.cbz
C:\Comics\DC Comics\Batman\Batman #610.cbz

On Android
\sdcard\Comics\DC Comics\Batman\Batman #608.cbp
\sdcard\Comics\DC Comics\Batman\Batman #609.cbp
\sdcard\Comics\DC Comics\Batman\Batman #610.cbp

Right now everything goes into \sdcard\Comics folder which for me is a little unorganized.

If I'm missing anything, please let me know.

To get this working, you could sync your comics with Dropbox or Sugarsync... Not the
same as the CR sync that syncs the status of the comics (read or unread), but
it will keep your folders structure...
