ISBN Question

I just finished an epub for a client of mine, besides the epub he needed a mobi and a pdf. I generated these and now need to know the following. Client then gave me the ISBN number for the book he generated and I entered it in the metadata inside the epub. The client then generated 3 more ISDN #s and is wanting me to add these to the mobi and pdf.

How does the ISDN code system work? I would think that the ISDN the client has for the hardcover book would be the same number that would be used in the epub. I converted that epub to a mobi file and there is nowhere to re enter an isbn code do I assume that the .mobi would have the same code as the epub. Is this true with the pdf as well?

anybody?

thx

RD

This is NOT a Sigil question.
There is a separate ISBN for each (dead tree) format

Since Sigil makes EPUB (1 format), you will need other tools to include the proper ISBN for each other format
