I am running FBReader V2.2.7 (2020720) on a Samsung Galaxy S5 (Android 4.4.2). I have 7651 books in the Books folder on the SDCard.
I use Calibre (currently V2.16) to maintain my E-book library on my PC (Windows 7, all updates applied). For the most part, I have been using Calibre’s Send to Device feature to transfer E-books to the Android device.
However, when I move books to the device using this feature, they are not recognized by FBReader. Opening the Library and performing a search will fail to find the newly added books. Performing a Rescan will not make the books accessible. Rebooting the device and restarting FBReader does not help; nor does performing a Rescan after a reboot.
The only way that I have been able to make the new books accessible is to open the Application Manager, find the FBReader entry, and then Clear data and Clear cache. Of course, because this also deletes all settings in FBReader, I then have to configure the program again.
Although using the Calibre Connect/share feature to open a Content Server, and then defining a Network Library in FBReader to access the books is an alternative, I would prefer to be able to manage the library from within Calibre, if possible.
Is there any way to resolve this issue – that FBReader doesn’t recognize books copied into the Books folder by Calibre?

Yes, and yes.
That is, yes, I can open it from an EXTERNAL file browser (which associates the epub file with FBReader), and once I have done so, it also appears in the library.
