Transferring Ebooks to Nexus 10.
« on: June 01, 2013, 06:02:23 AM »
Can anybody please help Me. I've just bought a Samsung Nexus 10 I'm trying to transfer an Ebook from My laptop onto My Nexus. The Ebook file is going on My Nexus into settings-storage-misc files, but I don't know how to open the file so I can read the book. Also do İ need to change the file format to one that is compatible with My Nexus. I would appreciate any help given as I'm very inexperienced with tablets. Thanks Jim.

If you are transferring a single ebook I usually just email it as an attachment to my gmail and save it to the download folder. What format ebook are you using and what ebook reader?  ALDIKO is a good reader, and it can view several formats.  There are apps available for your PC that can also change the ebook format, I typically choose the epub format as it is pretty universal for most reader apps.

Thanks very much for the information. Could I be a pain, and please accept My ignorance. But how do I now transfer the email with the book file into the download folder. I've installed ALDİKO onto my Nexus.
Thanks very much for Your help and patience.
Regards.
Jim.

When you open the email on your tablet, tap the three  ". . ." after the ebook file and you should be prompted download or save the file.  It will be in your download folder.  You can use ES File Explorer or Astro File Explorer or the like type of file manager to view or move the file.  I use ES and made a folder called epubs that I store all my epub files.   ALDIKO can be directed to any location to load it into its memory...

Not a problem at all, someone spent their time with me for the same.

On a different note, same outcome, if you get the Nexus Media Importer app and a micro usb to USB adapter cable(OTG cable) , you can read any memory device and transfer material back and forth, from a memory stick to an powered external HDD.  I've even attached my 2TB drive and transfered material.  Although transferring one or two ebooks is easier via email, but music and video files being larger are more appropriately transferred via the cable and the app.
