    The never ending learning curve...with problems called Drop Box

    I loaded the Kindle app. Then a friend said I needed Drop Box...OK... So I found and downloaded that app. Later, he sends me some books...nice, but I can't open any. What do I need to do? Thanks, JR

    The never ending learning curve...with problems called Drop Box

    If your friend sent you some books that he got from Amazon (that can be read with the Kindle app), you can't read them. Amazon, like most other e-book stores, have software on each e-book to protect from unauthorized copying and sharing of books. This software is Digital Rights Management (DRM) and it makes it so that a book can only be read by the purchaser.

    Due to this DRM, your friend cannot share electronic books with you. You'll have to purchase your own. Sorry.

    By the way, this has nothing to do with Dropbox, which is "merely" an online cloud storage.

    Your friend can lend you an Amazon ebook. Here is some information. Unlike printed books, ebooks cannot be given away.
