    Not sure if iBooks gets lumped into iWorks but?

    Before the wonderful iOS8 came along and everything worked. I put several books (Reference) to the iCloud, today I tried to recover one or two and it won't let me!!! I have tried the usual way (tapping on the book) it does show that it is working i.e. the little circular thingy in the top corner confirms it is downloading - but thats as far as it gets, when the download thing disappears I'm still left with the iCloud symbol and no book.

    Wife suggested I go to the store, search for my bought and paid for book/s and reload them from there - did that - same response! I have 4 books (paid for) which I don't seem to be able to recover.

    Now I have tried to sign in and out of my account which works perfectly and I have done a system reset on the iPad - but nothing - any suggestions, with the exception of speaking to Apple (I'm never going to waste another day of my life doing that again) would be most appreciated and with luck Bris the moderator won't lock this thread before a conclusion comes along.

    Apologies, I have just noticed that there is a iBooks; bit but as nobody has looked at it for a few months and I can't see anything within it, to do with what to do when it is not working I will leave my question here - not that I know how to move it anyway!

    Happy New Year

    Hello - now I'm assuming that you have recently upgraded to iOS 8.x on your iPad and no longer have the desired books on the device - correct? Do you have iBooks on the iPad? If not, then download from the App Store - but if so, open iBooks - go to your 'Books' category (see screen shot below) and 'Unhide' your iCloud Books (blue arrow) - books that are in the cloud should show the 'cloud' icon w/ the outgoing down pointing arrow (see the two w/ red arrows - I have plenty more on the next page) - see if this helps - if not please post back - Dave :)

    Hi Dave thanks but I have done all that - I stored all my reference books on the cloud - they are there and show up as being on the cloud (your red arrows) to recover them usually you just tap the book, it asks you for you password (sometimes) and bobs your uncle - they recover - well they ain't!!

    If you have not done so already, restart and/or reset the iPad. Just because it's worth trying.

    But:

    I know you don't want to, but you are probably going to have to talk to iTunes Support (not Apple Tech Support). They should be able to reset whatever has got those books hung up, or at least tell you why they won't download anymore.

    I'm saying this because, short of cleaning out your entire iBooks library and re-downloading them all again, I've no idea of how to approach this. And I'm not entirely sure how to clear the library without doing a clean restore of the device, or using iTunes on a computer. You no longer have the option of deleting iBooks and re-installing it.

    TP I decided to take your, as always, very sensible advice, bite my lip and seek help from iTunes :( guess what I got an email straight back telling me that they acknowledge my request and promise contact within 48 hours :). That was lunchtime last Thursday, since then not a single peep:mad: Apple Customer care/ iTunes is crap and that's trying to be nice;)
