Update: I just tried it with a few other files and I get the same hash as the Kindle creates. The difference I notice is that these other files don't have hyphens in the filename. Is it possible that the hyphen is causing the difference?
Could be. It might be encoded. What's the hash supposed to be?

However, looking at mine, I have two files with hyphens, and they encode fine?

Weird. I went and downloaded that pdf, and put it on my kindle (named exactly hackermonthly-issue1.pdf) and added to a collection and I see:
"*1d71ee1d02b3a543980d690d8d4026a8be73e3ca"

Just like the sha1 hash I get from the command line.

BTW - Thanks for pointing out the magazine, looks interesting.

Do you think it could be a Kindle 2 vs. DX difference? I may delete the collections and files and copy the files and try again when I can get back to my Kindle.

Has anybody figured out what kind of escaping is applied to non-alphanumeric chars before applying sha1.

@Daniel Mahler: No idea. UTF-8? htmlentities?

Have you looked into this thread at mobileread? Firmware Update Kindle Collection Manager for Windows, url hopefully below:

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=94261

The developer is up to collections editor v.4 and working on v.5. As someone with over 2500 files loaded on the kindle, I've found his program very useful. It's still not without flaws but he is working on them and improvements with each release.

I downloaded your editor but probably won't have a chance to try it until a few days from now, depending on work schedule.

Thanks for sharing.
