I thought the first instance of upubs was a typo. What are upubs?

Upubs are the format needed to install into the kobo vox.

Never heard of them. I read DRM free ePUBs, the Kobo format (AKA kepubs) on the Vox Kobo App. Actually I use the Kobo app from the Play store, not the one that is part of the Vox.

OK, now I didn't ask if they were free because I wanted to know if you paid for them. I asked if they were DRM free, because the Kobo app only works with ePUBs without DRM and books with the proprietary Kobo ePUB (aka kepub) format.

There are a number of ways to get books that are drm free onto the Kobo app, including, using dropbox and downloading them from there, using Calibre server, bringing them over via USB and Adobe ADE, dragging and dropping them onto your Kobo over USB and a file manager.

If the books have Adobe Adept DRM, you can use an app like Aldiko for them. Aldiko might also work with other ePUB DRM schemes (like Nook Books). I don't know anything about that.

It sounds like you completed the first step: copying the files onto your Vox. The next step is importing the books into the Kobo reader app.

From the bookshelf in the Kobo reader app, press the menu button. Select Import Content and follow the on screen instructions from there.

If you don't want to go through this import process, it is possible to grab a third party app from Google Play. I like CoolReader, but FBReader is pretty good too. There are other reader apps, but a lot of them like to import ePubs (though they will do so seamlessly).

Odd. I've never had that problem. You can try deleting the Pegasus directory and reimporting, but I don't know if that will solve your problem.
