How do you put e-books on your PocketBook e-reader?

Before you can start reading, you first need to put some books on your e-reader. There are 2 simple ways to put e-books on your PocketBook e-reader. Use a USB cable to connect your e-reader to your computer and quickly transfer the files. Or use email to send the e-books to your e-reader, even if you don't have it on hand.

Via a USB cable and your computer/laptop

  1. Connect your e-reader to your PC or laptop via a USB cable.
  2. You'll be asked whether you want to charge or link to the PC. Choose PC Link.
  3. Open Explorer (Windows) or Finder (Mac) on your computer. Your e-reader will appear on the left, with your drives (Windows) or devices (Mac).
  4. Drag your e-books to your e-reader. The file in which you place the books is also where you can find them on your e-reader.
  5. Disconnect the e-reader and enjoy your reading session.

Via email with Send-to-PocketBook

  1. Make sure your e-reader is connected to the WiFi.
  2. Go to Settings on your e-reader and then to Accounts and Synchronization.
  3. Choose the option "Send-to-PocketBook" and tap "Register".
  4. Create a PocketBook account by filling in your email address and password.
  5. Open the email you receive from PocketBook on your computer and create your own PocketBook email address. This is actually the email address of your e-reader.
  6. Send your e-book as an attachment from your personal email to your PocketBook email.
  7. Grab your e-reader, tap "Synchronize" at the top, and the book appears in your library.

Transfer secured Adobe DRM files

Some e-books are secured via Adobe DRM. This is a copy protection that prevents people from illegally spreading e-books. You need a separate program to transfer these secured e-books to your e-reader. You can easily download that program (Adobe Digital Editions) via the Adobe site. Create an account and follow the steps down below to transfer e-books to your e-reader.

Transfer secured Adobe DRM files

  1. After purchasing your e-book, you receive an .acsm file. You can only open this with Adobe Digital Editions (ADE).
  2. Open ADE on your computer and log in with your user name, or create an account.
  3. Open the .acsm file with ADE. Your e-book now appears in your library.
  4. Connect your e-reader to your computer via a USB cable. Your e-reader automatically appears in ADE. Restart the program if it doesn't appear.
  5. Drag the book from your bookshelf to your e-reader and then disconnect your e-reader.
