Books on my e-reader wont open

Has anyone had books that downloaded but will not open? I downloaded 5 books last week and 3 of the 5 will not open.

A little more information will help.
Where did you download the books from.
What format are they.
Could it be that you downloaded a DRM'd book and don't have the required associated programs to make them readable? i.e. Adobe Digital Editions.
B&N ePub books won't work on a Sony.

You probably have two different book formats.

Did you buy them from the Sony Bookstore? They seem to have a pretty consistent problem with that. If you DID get them from Sony, good luck!
