Can the books can be saved on your computer and reloaded later onto the Jetbook Lite, after a firmware update, for example?
Does eReader.com count? It was owned by Fictionwise and now is also
part of B&N just like Fictionwise.

I have plenty of ereader DRMed pdb files that I have bought from eReader
(and some from Fictionwise, I think) that I just added to a folder on my
SD card, straight from my PC's download folder. [I have also disinfected
most of them and converted them to epub, just to insure I am not locked
into any internet site's retention policy/ability. And have them in other
theme folders on my SD card.]

I have all the Flinx and Pip series and part of the Harry Dresden series on
the SD card with their DRM intact, in other words not having been thru
any processing, just copied to the SD card. Also a number of political
best sellers. Since I also have processed copies of all those files, I am
keeping these infected files around just for testing purposes.

To answer your question directly; just copy the infected .pdb to your SD
card. The first time you read the file you will have to enter the unlocking
data. After that all the .pdb files that use that same unlocking data will be
readable.

I haven't tried the ADE based epub or pdf DRMed files as I don't really trust
the internet linked ADE process. [I just remove the DRM and be done with
it.]

Luck;
Ken
