Hello everyone - a newbie here.
I have a first edition Ipad running IOS 5. All apps work perfectly bar Ibooks. The problem there is that books (either newly purchased or redownloaded after purchase) appear in the books section with the blue progress bar but immediately vanish the moment they complete downloading.
Things I have tried already without success include:
checking that I have selected books not pdfs
deleting the ibooks app and redownloading that from itunes
reset on the Ipad
checking I am logged in with the same Itunes ID as with the original book purchases
making entirely new purchases of Ibooks
Any other suggestions would be gratefully received - this problem has been unresolved for months!
