Help! inputting books to B&N Reader for Win devices
I use an HTC Touch Pro 2 win-based smartphone to read B&N books on its (beta) reader application. Although I like the reader, I can't figure out how to get content into it that didn't come from B&N.
I found the folder: Program Files\BN eReader\Books. In there, books are stored (as ePub files... didn't know that until I looked). I can add ePub files to the folder, no problem, but that's not enough to get the reader library to recognize them.
There is another file, found under the "My Windows-Based Device" folder, called BN.db3. As the name suggests, it's a database file, and that's what the B&N Reader uses to find its books. But I have no idea how to edit it (which I believe would be a manual process). I also can't figure out how to get the reader to accept new books into it.
Can anyone steer me in the right direction to be able to input ePub books into this library, and read all of my content on it?

I was wondering the same thing and so I decided to research it a little and I tried a few things out. I don't have many ePub books, but I've purchased a few from Barnes & Noble, and install the windows mobile B&N eReader application to my HTC Touch Diamond2 a few weeks ago.
I've read that the BN.db3 file is a SQL lite database. If you know anything about SQL Lite (I don't), you can modify the file to add new books to the database and then you can open your books.
Or you could download some free ePUB books from B&N's website. Then rename your books to whatever those free books are called - essentially replacing the book you downloaded with your book. The title would be all wrong, but when you select the book in the B&N eReader software, your book would open up.
It might just be easier to install Freda to your phone.

I'm currently using the HTC eReader on my HD2. I've loaded epub files that I have found from Project Gutenberg straight to my micro SD card. On my phone I go to file explorer, select the file, and it loads automatically on the HTC eReader. You may want to explore HTC eReader cab for HTC sense. From what I recall the Touch Pro 2 has HTC Sense, I may be wrong though. Otherwise what ProfJulie recommended may be best for you, Freda. Also look into AlReader, I used it before on my HTC Touch Pro and it worked well. Also go to XDA and to freewarepocket PC to find other eReader cabs.
