The problem occurs when I load the books into my iTunes iPad Book library for syncing/reading in iBooks…

The two newly published books load with grayed out boxes (not picking up book cover art) the older book published some time ago loads into iTunes just fine…

When I click on the gray box "it says I can't read it on this computer but should be able to read it on the mobile device"... NOT TRUE...

I even moved iTunes and the converted ePub to another computer and tried to import in to library… same problem occurred…

Has something changed in ePub or iTunes that make them no longer compatible…?

Is something wrong with iTunes I don't know about...???
What should I try next…?
Thanks in advance…

It sounds like a DRM problem to me. Not sure what 'has changed' - but the solution is to download Calibre (free software) then search for Apprentice Alf (a blog that explains how to use Calibre to solve your problems).
