iBooks does not open books after update to ios 5
I have a bunch of ePub books which I have uploaded onto the iPad using iTunes. They worked fine previously with cover art etc. however once I updated to ios 5 I am having trouble. In particular, some books now appear on the screen with cover art but I can no longer open them as there is a black line of sorts in each of the books I can't open. As if they were trying to download but can't for some reason. I tried to erase everything and resync several times without avail. Indeed every time I resync what happens is that random books become available but others do not. I can't delete them or move these books anywhere.
Any help i can get is greatly appreciated.
Same problem, but just occured after months of problem free use.
I was reading a book last night before bed. I woke up this morning, made breakfast, was sitting over my steaming bowl of oatmeal ready to get back into my book... but this story does not have a happy beginning. My book... nay, ALL my books are no longer accessible. Black bars mar each and every book, I cannot delete, move, open, or make any changes to my books in any manner. I deleted the app, shut down, restarted my iPhone 4S and redownloaded iBooks.... and same thing. A mystery begins... did my 3-year old child drop my phone in the toilet overnight? Perhaps my sinister wife who has had it in for me ever since I moved our Hawaii vacation back a week... or perhaps Apple has put me down as a "bad apple".... Any suggestions or thoughts?
