Books purchased from iBooks (with Apple DRM) can only be viewed in iBooks
i think they were bought from amazon not apple, but when i sync with the ipad the books go into itunes and become impregnable ! ive installed kindle as well ,which works great but still wont bring in these other purchases.I havent bought anything from either itunes or ibooks. but even if you buy from itunes/ibook the macbook wont open or read them like the ipad does ,right? pretty complicated crap for a high tech laptop thats supposedly the best.
under the info header for one book in Digital Editions reads: error: "document contains a resource that is too long " !
Umm... I think you missed Jim Lester's point: "Books purchased from iBooks
(with Apple DRM) can only be viewed in iBooks".
So, if that's the source for your ebooks, you'll have to use iBooks to read
them, not ADE.
I'm definitely missing something ! I haven't purchased any ibooks ever. books purchased from amazon work very nice in ibooks on IPAD only. when synced to my macbook they are worthless and unreadable. Books purchased from / through Kindle also work great and are synced perfectly to the macbook. Question 1: can books purchased elsewhere be put on kindle ? i legally bought them and should be able to have them where i want ! Books bought USING the ipad (from amazon) went into Ibooks,which purposely does not allow them to be read on a macbook.Another forum poster stated he reads his ibook on his mac using Adobe Digital Editions. This forum says : nope ,cant do it . i certainly CANNOT and posted the error messages that i got. Question 2 : After downloading Adobe Digital Editions ,shouldn't i be able to read any book on my macbook (that was synced into itunes from my ipad ) ? see my error messages Question 3 : If not ,how can i get them into Kindle where they work perfectly on any device i've owned ? Thank you . Rhetorical question for Apple marketing: why buy anything where its use is limited and won't sync with even your own ( expensive) products
I think you are getting very confused. Amazon does not sell epub files (they use a different format). So if it is an epub file that you are synching from your iPad via iTunes, then you most likely purchased it in iBooks.
If it is indeed content that you purchased from Amazon, you should download the Amazon Kindle app for MacOS, and then you don't have to worry about synching (it will take care of it for you).
