Microsoft shut down the server some time ago. You can't authorise new instances of the reader, nor can you download new copies of the books. If you don't already have them downloaded and de-drmed (& converted) they're lost.

And yes, it would be splendid if they transferred over to a new life.

Me too. In fact, FW closing is a bit of a blow, because I don't think there is anyway to get Asimov's now in the UK, unless you have a Kindle reader. It is not carried by Kobo UK who I normally use for epubs. Amazon UK will only supply it for the Kindle ereader, and not for Kindle PC, so you cannot download it to your PC and then format convert. I may contact the Asimov's editor and see what she thinks, because she's keen on supporting ereaders. Obviously from her point of view it will affect sales outside the USA.

I am not buying a Kindle just for Asimov's, especially as I have just got a Kobo Glo! There is more to ebooks than Amazon!

I got the same message when I tried the link supplied in the email. But I have had several email address while I've been a member of both fictionwise.com and ereader.com; do I put one of my old email addresses in the link and that went through. Luckily I still have access to the old email address. I wonder if it will do both accounts?

My Google-fu seems to be failing me this morning. I don't have a B&N account, and am in the UK, but I can't find a UK version of the site. Are those of you who are talking about having UK accounts for B&N doing it with a UK address on the main .com site?

I'm doing a bulk download from FW, just to be sure as they are all already in Calibre. This download will go straight to a external drive as back up. I only bought DRM free multi format but am still downloading the mobi, epub and PDF versions.

Funnily enough my library states 177 books but my back ups are 179 books in all formats. I think i need to do a calibre tick back.

I am debating about trying the NOOK transfer, I am in the UK too, I'm not too worried about the transfer but would the resuting epubs (assuming i get any ) be DRM'd?

I am assuming B&N uses DRM, like Amazon does?

I opted in for the transfer and got 6 of 135. I bulk downloaded and got only the open format books (59). I can't figure out any way to get the "Secure OEBFF" books. My Rocket ereader, or whatever it was called, is long gone. Anyone have any ideas? I never did figure out how to get those secure books onto my PC for potential future use...

I HATE DRM!

Per the bulk download notes, secure books would automatically be added, but they are not in the zip files.

Yes, I have not had one yet. The last email I had from FW was May 2010, but I still have an account with them. My last purchase was September 2012. (I am in the UK).

Uk user here too, and I've not had an email yet. I've checked that the email address on my Fictionwise account is the correct one, and I'll use that to set up a B&N account.

My books are all downloaded and backed up anyway, but I guess it's the principle of the thing and a feeling that getting the books transferred at least provides continuity back to the good old days of Fictionwise!

Do you need a nook to buy ebooks from B & N, specifically magazine subscriptions like Asimov's science fiction? With Amazon, they will only allow downloading magazines direct to the device, and not to Kindle reading software on your PC.

Calibre itself does not process DRM'ed ebooks.
But it can be extended with plugins, software modules that you can configure to process different types of DRM'ed ebooks. Including eReader format.
It has long been considered sensible to process your ebooks right after purchase to be on the safe side of something like this.

Do a web search for "Apprentice Alf"...
It's like the days of Prohibition, you gotta know a guy that knows a guy to get into the speakeasy.

The 2 extra files are manifest files which Fictionwise stuck in the 2 ZIP files you downloaded. Each one lists the ebooks in one of ZIP file.s

Is OEBFF unique to the Rocket? If so then the files might not even exist anymore. They could have been stored on a server which went down when Rocket died.
