If you have received a specific error message upon purchasing and downloading an eBook or are having an issue with one or more of the eBook formats please refer to the Electronic Book Support Center homepage for initial guidance.
Depending on the type of ebook software, the ebook file is either encrypted to a specific computer or device (meaning it can only be read on that computer or device) or it is encrypted to a specific user's account (meaning it can be read on any device or computer which contains that user's secret account information).
If an ebook has been protected for only one person to read, then consumers download the file to their computer and must read the ebook on that computer (or on other devices containing their secret account information). Copies of the ebook can only be read on authorized computers or by authorized users.
Most Ebooks are transferred to PDAs and handheld computers by "synchronizing" them with your computer. If you are not familiar with synchronizing your PDA or handheld computer, you should consult the instructions for your specific device.
Before you can transfer an ebook to your handheld computer/PDA, you must first download the ebook to your desktop or laptop computer.
