Question Can anyone help me with EPUB files on my E-Reader?

Hi there, I bought an E-reader (not sure of the make) and purchased e-books. I downloaded them and put them onto Adobe Digital Edditions which was all fine. I authorised my E-reader and dragged the books onto it which all worked. But when I unplug the USB and go into my E-reader, the EPUB files won't open and the symbol is a zip folder. Can anyone tell me what could be happening and if I can ever open these books?! My E-reader states that it is compatible with EPUB and all other files. Thanks.

Hi Anne, welcome to MobileRead

The question is the same: which ebook reader do you have? Does it say in the specifications that it can read epub files with drm? A great deal of the cheaper tablets are not able to read drm'ed epubs.
One solution might be to de-drm the files. We are not allowed to give detailed information here, use google and apprentice and alf if you want to go this way.

From what you post your reader is not loading/decoding the e-pub an epub is a form of zipped html file... hence the zip file icon... some drm epubs are specific to a particular reader but without knowing what make your reader is it's hard to tell.... I suggest you load a non-drm epub from one of the free sites (like gutenburg) and try that.... if that doesn't work then your reader doesn't handle e-pub.. in spite of what it might say... but surely there is something on the reader itself or in the software that tells you what make/model it is ???
