Nexus 7 and Sony Reader
« on: September 03, 2012, 09:31:34 AM »
Hi. I'm a new user of Nexus 7 and I love it.

I'm trying to use it to read some ebooks which I saved in Google's g-drive.
I downloaded and installed the Sony Reader in my Nexus 7 from Google Play.
But when I try to open the ebooks with the .mobi and .epub formats,
there comes an error  message on my Nexus 7 that says:
"Unable to open document. No viewer is available for this type of document."

I know Sony Reader can open those files because I'm using it on my ASUS TF300 tablet too, and it works well.
Does anyone know what's wrong with my Nexus 7? Any advice is helpful.

Thanks.

Try installing the app 'Aldiko' from the Google Play store and see if that works better.

Hi, Babyfacemagee.

Thanks for your advice. I installed the Aldko Limited version and now I can open (read) the ebooks of the .epub format. The .mobi format files still can not be opened.

Thanks again.

Try Cool Reader it supports epub and mobi formats. Aldiko does not support mobi format.

Hello, S.Prime.

I tried to install the "cool reader" in my N7.
When I select the .mobi file from my Google Drive (or even I set that file as an offline use file),
there comes a message window (and closes very fast that makes me can not read the message well)
to show the system is downloading it, but nothing happens after the message window disappears.
I tried to use "cool reader" with both my N7 and ASUS TF300 and it does the same thing on both of them, can not open the file.

I tried to use "Mobipoket Reader" on my PC to read the same file, it works well.

Ok, let me to do more research to find the way to open it.

Thanks.

@bobfuji

You cannot open the book from Google Drive. You will have to copy the mobi file to your Nexus 7. You can use a file manager like Astro from Google Play Here to copy your mobi files from Google Drive to the internal memory on your Nexus 7 or you can transfer them from your computer using a USB cable.
