How to read acsm ebook on Ipad

Aug 1, 2010 11:49 AM

I have just bought an ebook which required me to download Adobe Digital Editions. I can open the book fine on my computer in digital editions (I work on a Mac). I am however not able to figure out how to transfer it to, and thus read it on, my IPad. Suggestions would be much appreciated,

    Hi Marianne,


    I have the same question. Although nobody ever answered your question is this forum, were you able to find a solution?

    Open itunes.

    Click on app store.

    Enter Epub reader in the search field (upper right).

    Second section down is for ipad.

    There you will find several apps that are supposed to be able to read epub and pdf files.


    No claim on my part as to what works, as I have no experience with ipad. I use a kindle.


    Good luck.

    One other point:  the '.ascm' file is not the ebook itself - just a small

    file containing data about where the ebook is located and some information

    about its size, etc.  When you go to download the ebook from the source,

    your iPad ebook reader for '.epub' format will know what to do with that

    Another thread pointed me to the Bluefire Reader app (free). It worked like charm to open the ascm file that I had purchased.
