Red face Automatic transfer books

I'm trying to find a way to get books automatically on the iphone (wake up and have books in ibooks for the commute)
It keeps asking me to 'auto convert before transferring books?'
I have set that option in preferences and chosen different convert formats to no avail!
Help anyone?
Thanks,
G

Have you set the default format to ePub (which is what iBooks needs)? The auto-convert option is normally only offered if your books are not already in that format.

Yes

Thanks, I've got it set to epub. I think I see now. Mainly wanted it to auto download feeds. But I guess now, that some of them are in different formats and need converting.
