KOBO TOUCH SIDELOADING

Hello,

I am looking to get my first e-reader and picked the Kobo Touch. It looks like a great e-reader but I had a few conserns. I have a few books that are epub format and once that I downloaded for free also in epub format.

I was wondering if I would be able to upload these books on to the Kobo touch without any problems.

Thanks,
Franco99

Yes. I asked the same question to the kobo help desk and this was their answer.

While the touch isn't out yet, it's hard to say; however, if kobo follows their previous readers leads, and they would be pretty stupid not to, sideloaded Epubs should work fine.

Franco, download the free program Calibre and use it to load books on to your Kobo, manage your library, etc.

You should be able to. At present Kobos appear on Macs and Windows boxes as "external drives" and I see no reason why that should be any different with the Touch.

This means that all file manipulation that can be done with the Finder or Windows Explorer is accessible. So, if you are savvy with copying files around using either of these you can do so with the Kobo. No need for an extra program to do so.
