    iPad was released a few days ago, as the biggest competitor for the kindle. iPad embeds a book reader named iBook, iBooks uses an ebook format called ePub. If you have many PDF files or some other format ebooks you want to put on iPad, there is a free converter called calibre can help. And this step by step tutorial will guide you through the process of converting PDF files to ePub for iPad with calibre.​

    If you want to watch video on iPad, here is a step by step guide regarding how to rip DVD and convert video to iPad.​

    Step1. Download and install calibre. The interface is very slightly different in each version. These tutorial images are captured on Mac, but Windows users should have no problem at all following along.​

    Step2. Find the PDF file you want to convert. In this tutorial, we used ‘The Adventures of Tom Sawyer’ as example.​

    Step3. The first time you run calibre it will take you through a quick setup. The first thing you’ll want to do is specify your ‘ebooks’ folder. This is the location you’ll save your .ePub files. ​

    Step4. After you set the ebooks folder, click continue Then select Apple from the Manufacturers list, and iPhone/iTouch + Stanza from the Devices list.​

    [​IMG]

    Step5. Click ‘continue’, then you will see the main calibre interface. Click the Add books button in the top-left corner of the window to import your PDF file into calibre.​

    [​IMG]

    Step6. Now click the small ‘arrow’ next to the Edit Meta information and select Download metadata and cover files. Calibre will now download additional information about your PDF/ebook – if it can find it. If it’s an eBook (as a .pdf), you may need to manually enter the book title and author name if it isn’t present when you load it into calibre initially.​

    [​IMG]

    Step7. After finish download the ebook meta information. Click the small arrow next to the Convert E-books button. From the list that will appear, select Convert individually. You will be prompted with a “summary” window prior to calibre making the final conversion. Click the OK button.​

    Step8. After the conversion is finished, you can locate the folder on step3 where you save the ePub file. Then connect your iPad to your Mac or PC, and launch iTunes. From the iTunes menu select File -> Add to Library… to import the converted ePub file. The new .ePub file will now appear in the Books section of iTunes.​

    [​IMG]

    Step9. Select your iPad in iTunes and select the Books tab. After confirming your new .ePub book is listed, click the Sync button. That’s all. Then you can lunch iBooks on iPad and find the eBooks. ​

    But, speaking as someone who has done this for years, the formatting can get tricky. Some PDF's do well, others not son much. It really is much easier to use Goodreader and just read the PDF's.

    I agree with Bremen with that some PDF doesn't do well after converting.I still have PDF files that are hopeless for conversion. Members in this forum even tried to help me but still it can only be viewed only with the pc.

    Tips: About ePut Format
    iBooks use an ebook format called ePub, ePub is supported by iPhone, iPad, iPod, iPod Touch, PC, Mac, Android Phone and others. What's the ePub format?

    The ePub format is a standard eBook format recommended by The International Digital Publishing Forum.

    The ePub file may be divided into three categories: XHTML documents, packaging files and container files.

    XHTML Documents. XHTML is a strict version of HTML. The stricter syntax enables web browsers or eBook viewers to render the document more easily. Packaging Files. They include two files: one with the .opf extension and another with the .ncx extension. Container Files. They must be placed in a folder named "META-INF". These files are used for encryption and digital rights management (DRM). For an eBook without DRM, the container file has only a few standard lines.

    To read ePub eBooks you will need a digital reader. There are now many such readers available with the most popular being the Sony Reader, Apple iPhone, iPod, iPad, Kindle, etc..

    I just received my new iPad, loaded Good Reader to be able to view the iPad Guide and it - so far - works like a charm. Thanks for the recommendation.
