Thanks!
Load your selection of books onto your Arc using Calibre. You can plug it in or follow these instructions to do it wirelessly using the Calibre server:

Note 2 changes: do not use Aldiko premium and now Calibre will tell you what your IP address is if you click on the little arrow next to the "Connect" icon, it will be in the drop down menu that appears.
For the rest of the sync process:
1- open a Dropbox account if you don't already have one. Install on PC and install the app on each device
2- make sure your Aldiko version is the free one (2.1) on all your Android devices, because permissions for Dropbox have changed, the premium version will not sync unless the tablet is rooted
3- purchase Aldiko sync from the Google Play Store (I think it costs about $1.99), install on each Android device
4- in Aldiko Sync, customize your settings, ensure that "sync to last point read" is selected
5- in Aldiko Sync, tap on "sync" folder, enter your Dropbox username and password
6- ensure wifi is "on" and allow your devices to do their initial sync, this takes more time the first time...
For the reading of any type of ebook in Aldiko, Google "Apprentice Alf" and follow the instructions.
