    It Works

    I was trying to get ReaderKeyRecoveryTool to work. The one sentence that did not sink in was that that tool is only needed if the file is encrypted, which her files were not. All I needed to do in ConvertLit was to Downconvert the lit file which strips off DRM5 and creates a DRM1 LIT file. That is fed into Calibre which creates the ebook. So easy once one knows the steps to take.

    Thank you for your comments. They got me to reexamine what I was actually doing.

    Does the ePub format offer advantages over just reading the file with a PDF reader (e.g. Goodreader)? I have some Canon & Adobe manuals that I would like to have on the iPad. Does any method exist to transfer files between my iPad and Windows PC via wi-fi on my LAN?

    Mike, I transfer from PC to Ipad via Dropbox (free for 2GB). I have my camera manuals on my Ipad. The Canons are offered in pdf but you have to look around for them. If you already have them, just install Dropbox on PC and the Dropbox app (all free) on the Ipad. Drag your pdf manual into your PC's Dropbox dialog box, it will appear in your Ipad Dropbox. There you can hit the. "open with" icon top right and open it in Goodreader or Ibooks or any other app that reads pdfs. I use Dropbox to transfer things all the time; photo files, docs, books from our digital library, pdfs. I backup things from Ipad on Dropbox too.

    There are other methods for transferring and accessing your PC, I just don't use them since Dropbox offers me other advantages than just transferring.

    Diane,

    Thank you. I am off to check on Dropbox. Is it worth my time to use Calibre to convert the pdf to epub format?

    I've never used Calibre though I know about it. Perhaps others can offer some insight but for me the pdf manuals are good. In fact I expect I would prefer them for a manual because its easier to find the right page. I would import them as pdfs and try them in Ibooks and Goodreader and see what you think. Those two pdf readers have a bit different viewing experience and you might prefer one over the other. I was just looking at my 5D manual in Goodreader and then did an "open with" to Ibooks. I prefer Goodreader where I can look at the contents and find the page number for what I'm looking for and then use the page finder (icon at bottom of page) and simply type in page number and it opens. However both aree quite nice to read pdfs.

    Thank you for your help. I have all my camera and photoshop reference materials moved to my iPad using Goodreader. It is a fantastic app. I agree, it seems much more useful than does iBooks, but then I have not done a lot with iBooks either.

    Regards

    Calibre had some add-on that will automatically trip DRM then convert your ebook. Maybe you will find more answers on how setup your Calibre tool in the mobileread forum.
