          I'm going to assume that you've registered your Aluratek and updated its

          software to the latest level from its mother site on the web.  If you have,

          your problem might be just a case of doing things in the 'right' sequence.

           

          First, turn on and plug in your Aluratek and make sure that your computer

          recognizes it.  If you have a Windows machine, it will detect 'new hardware'

          the first time you do this, and will show you a message box when Windows has

          finished installing it.  Your Aluratek will display a message that it's on

          line also.

           

          When your Aluratek is on line, open ADE.  As it initializes, ADE looks for

          ebook readers that it recognizes among the devices that are attached to the

          computer.  When it finds your Aluratek, it will show it in the left hand

          panel of the Library View screen.  You then can drag and drop your book to

          your Aluratek.  ADE will show you a progress panel as it copies your ebook

          to the Aluratek.

           

          Finally, you need to disconnect your Aluratek electronically, not

          physically, from ADE by ejecting it.  Right click on the word Aluratek in

          the left hand panel, and then click on Eject.  When finished, the word

          Aluratek will disappear from the panel, and you can close ADE.  After it

          closes, you can disconnect your Aluratek from the computer, but don't turn

          it off!  The Aluratek needs to update its internal catalog with the new

          ebook.  It will tell you when that's done, and then you can turn the

          Aluratek off, or go to its Home page and see the ebook in its library.

          Then, you can start reading the book.

           

          Hope this helps!

            I am having pretty much this same problem.  some of the sample files are DRM and some are not.  The ones that are DRM give me an error that I do not have permission to copy here.  The non DRM files work fine.  Any ideas?  This purchase is turning into a nightmare....

              For background: each ePub document has permissions embedded into it.  You

              can see those when you use Library view in ADE, highlight the document and

              then click on the arrow in the document's label.  You'll get a drop-down

              menu (Item Options) that includes a tab marked 'Item Info'.  Clicking on

              that will display the permissions for that document.  If you're transferring

              documents that are not ePub, then you don't have this feature.
