DRM-protected titles first need to be opened in Adobe Digital-Editions and can only then be synchronized with the reader software (e.g. Bluefire Reader) on an iPad/iPhone.

**

eBooks can only be read on a target device after conversion with the Calibre software.

***

We recommend eBooks in ePub / PDF format, since the Mobi format is not supportes by any eBook reader. For more detailed information, you can check with your device manufacturer.


Further information about the eBook formats and copy protection can also be found in our FAQ area.
