I am contemplating the purchase of an iPad. One of the big reasons is to download titles from my public library.I have a kindle but it is not compatible with the ePub format. Is the iPad compatible like the Sony e-reader? I am confused.
I can read these titles downloaded via Overdrive on my Macbook Pro but cannot transfer them to my Kindle.This isn't the only reason for wanting an iPad but it is the most important at the moment.I also use Calibre but that doesn't appear to be a solution.
I have a problem with adding epub books to my iPad. Goodreader acts as the default ebook reader and iBooks doesn't list the book in its library. Goodreader can't open the books no matter which reading format I choose.I've tried to get info from both apps, but haven't found anything that help solve the problem.
Information: Dell Windows Vista iPad, HP iPaq hx2495b
the pdf user's guide states, chapter 15:Syncing BooksUse iTunes to sync your books with iPad. When iPad is connected to your computer, the Books pane lets you choose which books to sync.In addition to books that you download from iBookstore, iBooks works with books that are in ePub format and DRM-free. There are several websites that offer ePub books, and many of these books can be used with iBooks. Add an ePub book: Download the book using your computer, then add it to your iTunes library. Connect iPad to your computer, select the book in the Books pane in iTunes, then sync iPad.
I purchase a Sony Daily edition ereader in January 2010 and since then I have purchased 129 DRM encoded epuB books from the Sony book store. The Sony e reader is pure junk. I have a hard time syncronising with my PC and there is no backlight so I cant read in bed without a flashlight. Can someone help me with a specific way to strip the DRM from the Sony Epub books so that I can read them on my brand new IPAD? I called sony and after they verified my identity and every one of my purchases the customer service guy said that if I can find a way to put Adobe Digital Editing on the Ipad that would work. He stated that all Sony could say is that Sony might be working on an IPAD application.
Is there a way to email self-made ePub books to the iPad, or do I have use iTunes? I need to get them on a large number of devices and would prefer to use email. Information: Aluminum Macbook Mac OS X (10.6.4).
I have a question about converted ePub books. How do they look in iBooks? I have a Barnes & Noble Nook e-reader and when I buy a book from the Barnes & Noble e-store, the books look great, nice margins on the side of the screen so its easier to read. But when I side load a book, it doesn't format it the same way. The text goes all the way to edge to edge of the screen. When you add your own eBook does it look as good as the ones you buy from the iBook store?
I tried to checkout a couple of books online from my local library. When I download them (using safari) I get an error saying that safari can't open the link. The library also offers a program called Overdrive to use for downloads, but it's also a media manager. I can't figure out how to get the ebook into iBooks, they stay in Overdrive.
I do I found you can import un-encrypted epub books in to the iPad via iTunes 'Add File to Library' they show up in the 'Books' section, previously 'Audiobooks'. Then just drag and drop to your iPad and they will appear on your iBook shelf. I only had two epub books so far that would not transfer over, iTunes said the files were unreadable. So I do not know if it was the formating. But the epub ebooks I have gotten from Baen, and the un-encrypted epub ebooks I have gotten Fictionwise have transfered over without any problems.
I put my epub books into Itunes and moved over to Ipad 2. When I try to read them on Ipad 2 I get error message saying "Book Format Error...format is not recognized, or is invalid." What can I do so I can read my epub books on Ipad 2.
In iBooks, I have several books and PDF files. When synchronizing with iTunes, books from the bookstore and PDFs are saved and transferred into iTunes. But I cannot do the same for manually added ePub books that I added using USB transfer (I think I used Downloader lite). Anyway, since I am using generally Ubuntu, I use the iTunes sharing folder from an app to copy stuff in my iPad from Ubuntu. Then I just open the app, select the file and do a "Open in..." to put the file in the proper native app.
I have three books that I got a long time ago, put them on my iPad using Ubuntu. My problem is that I cannot find the originals on my computer, and I would like to copy those 3 books in my iPhone. If only I could find my cd from where I rediscovered this books, that would solve my issue...
I've just discovered that I can download recently published books from my public library for free but at the moment I can only read them in Overdrive and i'd prefer to read them in iBooks. Does anyone know if there is a way to move them in to iBooks?

Not sure if this is the right place to put it, but I'm sure several of us are trying to upload books to the iPad.I have some PDF books that I'd prefer reading through iBooks. Converted them to ePub format, but every time I try uploading them to the iPad it crashes at the end of the sync.
Just read this article about the ability to download and read every ebook from Project Gutenberg on your iPad. I'm so glad Apple has allowed unrestricted epub books to sync with your ipad, it opens up a ton of classic books that people can read for free. I know I'm going to download a bunch of classics right after I get my iPad.
I have several books in epub format which I don't want to lose. They were not backed up when my PC crashed. They are on my Ipad and I want to move them to a new copy of iTunes on a new PC. Is this possible?
I converted my PDF files into .epub format, and now need to transfer them onto my iPad from my PC. I tried e-mailing them, but the iPad won't download them. I tried using the USB cable by dropping them into the DCIM folder, not working. How do you do that?
Is there a way to load files (ePub, cbr, cbz) onto the Goflex Satellite drive and then transfer them to Goodreader or Dropbox thru the iPad or iPhone? Not sure if it is possible or not. I want to load all my comics onto the drive and then transfer them as I want when I am on the road. Comic Zeal allows you to import thru Goodreader and Dropbox.

Now when I try to add a folder [consist of some books all in PDF and epub it is all gray out. What can I do. I spend a few hours messing around still no go.
I have had great success using Calibre, but not without some trial and error. I have found that using the Kindle DX output format works well in iBooks. If you just drag and drop using stock output, there will be formatting errors.
