devices are read-only (you can not PUSH from the device)

With the device connected: switch to the Device (library view),
There you will see all the books available on your device.
Those without Ticks, can be selected: aright-click: add to Library (assumes current one)

Yes, that appeared to work, except the book seems to be encrypted, or just trash. Will have to try to understand what is happening. Thanks.....

Books directly downloaded to devices may be infested with DRM.
