Unhappy I need so help, pleaseeeee!

Hello Everybody!!!

I got my Kobo Glo about 3 weeks ago and I have to say, I am not very good with it when it comes to add books...

I have no problems when I buy them from kobo's website but I can't read the ones I downloaded from other websites. It is either not showing on my device or I can read the first 10 pages and then it is blank... I should may be tell you that I downloaded them from Isohunt and co. as I already have a paper copy of them.

Is there any body to help me, please?

I am getting very frustrated here.

Thank you

Use Calibre to manage your library and transfer them to your Kobo. Just drag and drop the book on to the Calibre main screen.

It sounds like you downloaded a bunch of crap, which is unsurprising given the source. If you keep going, you'll probably not just get crap fakes, but malware as well. Try your library and Project Gutenberg and other legit freebies, if you can't/won't buy ebooks.

Sounds to me like your reader is not the problem. The problem here seems to be the source where you got your books. Beware of viruses and the likes in such websites.
