Moving ebooks from PC to N7
« on: April 09, 2013, 06:10:59 AM »
Just got a nexus 7 and want to move a lot of epub files from my PC to the nexus.  Any quick instructions to save me trial & error and a lot of searching?  (I'm totally new to Android)

If they're non-drm'd books, save them in the book reader folder and it will pick them up.

Sign into your Amazon Kindle app with amazon id. That will make a Kindle folder in your file system. Thru usb or an app like Airdroid move the files into the Kindle folder.
Searching,reading and sharing experieces is how you learn.

Kindle won't read epub books.

Moon+ will work if you just make a books folder anywhere and copy the books into it.

Try Moon+Reader you can read Mobi, Epub, Pdf and more, along with the convenience of specifying multiple folders. I have the Pro version and it is well worth the cost and it even supports the "Personal Calibre eBook Server" and online libraries.

Thanks guys.  Useful stuff, now more Qs.
"If they're non-drm'd books, save them in the book reader folder and it will pick them up."  1 - 'non-drm'd' means?
2 - how to get files from pc to any given folder - not obvious what folders are available from pc or how to import on nexus.

DRM is Digital Rights Media in other words protected content. If you purchased your books from Amazon for a Kindle or from another source for another device, like a Nook, then they will have DRM. There are multiple ways to actually transfer the files to your Nexus 7, but DRM would be the key to your method.
