Not sure what readers you have tried. If you want to use PDF, you could try ezPDF Reader, it works great for me. But my preferred format is ePub and then you could use Aldiko or even the Nook app (I prefer Aldiko though).

Don't convert to Pdf it is not an ebook format. Convert to epub then you can use many readers to read it. You can get the list of ebook readers for android from here.

I would recommend coolreader app once you copy the file to your device just open it with coolreader

Dopedangle, I DL'd the coolreader and copied to my SD card and opened coolreader and selected SD card...did not see it anywhere. Is there a certian folder I need to copy the file to. I also converted to Epub using Calibre . I copied it to the internal HD. and not the SD card and it was in there. Wonder why it won't work on my sd card. I would like to be able to but several books on there when I go on vacation.I have more space on the card. Thanks for helping me out.

Part of the problem is the funky file structure Vizio uses on their tablet. Internal storage is labeled "SD CArd" and the micro SD card is located inside that in the file tree, lebeled "external." This means that not all apps can access the micro SD, because they're looking for it someplace that the tablet says does not exist. I was hoping that the update I got this week would fix that, but no. Maybe if there's enough interest to lead to a new root of the thing, we can fix that.

The good thing is that with the update to Honeycomb, the sdcard problem is solved, as wlellis mentioned here: http://androidforums.com/vizio-via-t...1-ota-now.html

I am not sure why Vizio didn't advertise this more, it is a huge improvement many have been waiting for.

Yes, it pretty much eliminated my biggest gripe about the VTab.*

Note that, when switching default storage to SD, apps will move but files will not. I spent an hour in a coffee shop on vacation yesterday
trying to figure out why Mrs. Drang couldn't access any of her Sony eBook files, finally downloaded Astro File Manager to her VTab, and realized that all book files needed to be relocated...


*Well, that and the skin. Fortunately, with the Honeycomb upgrade, Go Launcher works just fine...

My Samsung S Plus phone (Android 2.3.5) does the same.
