If you have upgraded from an earlier version of the plugin, any existing eReader (Fictionwise ‘.pdb’) keys will have been automatically imported, so you might not need to do any more configuration. Continue reading for key generation and management instructions.

Creating New Keys:
On the right-hand side of the plugin’s customization dialog, you will see a button with an icon that looks like a green plus sign (+). Clicking this button will open a new dialog for entering the necessary data to generate a new key.

Unique Key Name: this is a unique name you choose to help you identify the key. This name will show in the list of configured keys. Choose something that will help you remember the data (name, cc#) it was created with.
Your Name: This is the name used by Fictionwise to generate your encryption key. Since Fictionwise has now closed down, you might not have easy access to this. It was often the name on the Credit Card used at Fictionwise.
Credit Card#: this is the default credit card number that was on file with Fictionwise at the time of download of the ebook to be de-DRMed. Just enter the last 8 digits of the number. As with the name, this number will not be stored anywhere on your computer or in calibre. It will only be used in the creation of the one-way hash/key that’s stored in the preferences.
Click the OK button to create and store the generated key. Or Cancel if you don’t want to create a key.

New keys are checked against the current list of keys before being added, and duplicates are discarded.

Deleting Keys:
On the right-hand side of the plugin’s customization dialog, you will see a button with an icon that looks like a red “X”. Clicking this button will delete the highlighted key in the list. You will be prompted once to be sure that’s what you truly mean to do. Once gone, it’s permanently gone.

Renaming Keys:
On the right-hand side of the plugin’s customization dialog, you will see a button with an icon that looks like a sheet of paper. Clicking this button will promt you to enter a new name for the highlighted key in the list. Enter the new name for the encryption key and click the OK button to use the new name, or Cancel to revert to the old name..

Exporting Keys:
On the right-hand side of the plugin’s customization dialog, you will see a button with an icon that looks like a computer’s hard-drive. Use this button to export the highlighted key to a file (with a ‘.b63’ file name extension). Used for backup purposes or to migrate key data to other computers/calibre installations. The dialog will prompt you for a place to save the file.

Importing Existing Keyfiles:
At the bottom-left of the plugin’s customization dialog, you will see a button labeled “Import Existing Keyfiles”. Use this button to import existing ‘.b63’ key files that have previously been exported.

Once done creating/deleting/renaming/importing decryption keys, click Close to exit the customization dialogue. Your changes wil only be saved permanently when you click OK in the main configuration dialog.

Lithium-ion (Li-ion) Batteries

Lithium-ion batteries are the newest technology batteries and offer several advantages over NiMH and NiCd batteries. Lithium-ion batteries are preferred for their lighter weight and higher performance. Lithium-ion batteries are typically 20-35% lighter and will provide 10-20% better performance than a NiMH battery of equivalent mAh rating.

Lithium-ion batteries are also unique in that they are not susceptible to the “memory effect”.   A new Lithium-ion battery will benefit from an initial “conditioning” of the battery. For the first 3 charge cycles, fully charge the battery overnight  before recharging. Once conditioned, Lithium-ion batteries will perform best when charged at a rate somewhere between a conventional slow charge and a rapid charge. When rapid charging, Lithium-ion batteries require a charger designed to charge Lithium batteries.

To achieve a true full charge when rapid charging, the battery needs to be slow charged the last 10-15% of its charge cycle. Most “intelligent” desktop and Lithium-battery rapid chargers provide this capability. A Lithium-ion battery may be damaged by extensive overcharging (continuously on a charger for more than 24 hours).
