    Hello,
    Is there a way to transfer my nookbooks to iBooks. Would like to keep a library of books in one place and I prefer the iBooks app. Would hate to lose the downloads-lots of $ in book collection!

    Unfortunately, no. Because of Digital Rights Management (DRM), there is no way to read most Nook books in iBooks. It's a proprietary thing.

    Sorry.

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad

    Error MSG saying its not compatable? Any ideas?

    If it was not loaded from itunes, it may be blocked by an update. Also try taking it off the bookshelf.
