Can you tell me first, do you use Calibre, or are you intending to copy the books from your PC to the internal or external Sd card on the Vox?

Are the books already on the device???

‘Syncronize’ will search your device for compatible ebook formats (ePub & PDF). You’re presented with a list and you can select all or put a checkmark next to each book you want to add to your library screen.

‘Explorer’ offers you a file browser as another way to import books.

The books I have I bought through the Kobo store, so I just press synchronize and that
will import them to my Mantano app?When I've tried this before all I got was the
Mantano manual, which didn't help much.

It appears that Kobo doesn't store its epub files in a standard way, and hence Mantano doesn't find them. (Instead of storing them as an epub, which is mostly a renamed .zip file, it stores them as a directory with all of the files normally in the .epub in the directory.)

However, it is possible to download the epubs from Kobo using a browser, rather than using the Kobo app.

First you have to active Adobe DRM on your Vox in Mantano.

Then in a browser, go to kobobooks.com, log in, go to your library, download the epub you want (it actually downloads a URLLink.acsm file), then allow Mantano to open it.
