Kobo glo not syncing

Hopefully someone can help me...
I purchased some books earlier and my kobo wont sync properly.... After nearly 4 hours it has finally put my new books into my library on my kobo account on my desktop, but I can't get them onto my kobo for me to read.
I have tried deleting some books, even tho I only have 60 in my library, but this hasn't made any difference.
I have tried syncing wirelessly and when plugged into computer, but nothing is making a difference and I am just about read to throw everything across the room right now!! grrrrrrrr

robko: thanks for the contacts; however the link you speak of was not on the Canadian site but I found live chat by googling

bookworm: my fix was not as complicated as yours, I had to go into my account, then select the books, and select 'bookmark' then sync and voila the books were back on my Kobo

The info is on the Canadian website, but if you don't know where to look you have to lucky or really persistent and go through a bunch of screens to find it. They really need to make it much more user accessible.

I am having the same problem: cannot sync my books to my new Kobo Glo.

By "bookmark" do you mean "Add to eReader"? I only see the choices of Open, View Details, or Add to eReader.

It is this latter that is completely failing, it shows the sync progress for a second, but then it reverts to showing the book as not on the eReader, and sure enough when I disconnect my library is still empty.
