      How do I get an Ebook From Digital Editions to Samsung Galaxy P1000 tab ?

       

      Which applications should I install on my  samsung Galaxy P1000 Tab to copy the Ebook over from Digital Editions ?

          The process will be one thing - the support for the P1000 is another.

           

          The P1000 is not listed as a supported device by Adobe.  Part of the reason

          is that the Galaxy uses a tablet OS (Android) which ADE does not support,

          and thus can't connect to.  Clich HERE

          <http://blogs.adobe.com/digitalpublishing/supported-devices> to see the

          list of supported devices.

           

          There are several workarounds that have been discussed on the Forum, and I

          didn't save those messages - sorry!  You can try to search the Forum, or

          someone else who knows how to do it may respond to your post with the

          details.

              The citation is for the app on the Tab, not the interface WITH the Tab,

              which is the point.  ADE won't link directly to the Tab.

               

              So, why does Adobe list the app on the tablet?  That goes back to the

              start of this century, and the spec's for digital rights management that

              sprung from it.  Adobe Content Manager was picked as one of the methods for

              securing digital rights.  Adobe Digital Editions incorporates the functions

              of ACM, as do other epublication management software programs.  Thus, most

              sources of ebooks will 'specify' ADE as their primary download interface.

              That was before the Android OS took off.

               

              What you're running into is the pace of change in electronic devices.

              Every cell phone and tablet seem to have a way to 'read ebooks'.  Trouble

              is that the device manufacturers make the claims without telling you how to

              do it, and thesoftware guys can't keep up with the changes  ....  I'd bet

              that Adobe is trying to figure out how to interface with Android OS, but

              they haven't released anything yet.

               

              What you can try is to download the ebook to your ADE library, then use

              your computer's utility programs to transfer the ebook to the tablet, and

              then start the application on the tablet and import the ebook.....  If that

              doesn't work for you, you can try another device-neutral ebook management

              program, like Bluefire or Overdrive.

               

              Hope this helps!
