Help - What Am I Doing Wrong?



I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, but thought I'd ask folks far smarter than myself on all things eBook!

I just downloaded a free book from eReader.com. The format is PDB, which I thought was compatible with the Pocket Pro. I copied the file to the SD card, but when try to access it on my Pocket Pro it's not there.

The Pocket Pro and EZ-Reader support PDB format (as DOC), but not the Ereader PDB format (at least not yet).

More than likely even with it being a free ebook it is still DRMed. And if so the Ezreader can not open it yet. We are still waiting for Astek and barnes and noble to completed the contract that will give us the ereader upgrade that will let up read DRMed ereader books.

ahhhh, yes! I do remember reading this on the forums. Bummer that it isn't supported yet. Patience is a virtue!

Try using Calibre to convert it - if it is non DRM it will work.
