Okay, I'm a friggin' idiot. My learning curve is UGLY!!
I've been working with my e-book reader for the last 2 hours and my head is now pounding.
First, it took me forever to get the Librarian to download onto Vista. Really, that took an hour and a half to figure that all out. I downloaded it right but a shortcut was never created. I think after searching the computer for the 15th time I see a red icon and click on it. TADA! The librarian.
For some reason I can't create a shortcut for the thingie. Yeah, I've done the right click thing and everything. Meh.
THEN, I can't get the reader to figure out how to talk to the bookstores. So I finally decide, 'screw it, I'll work with the librarian'.
Thankfully, Chantal sent me a few e-book gifts and I was able to figure out how to load them onto the reader fairly easily. Phew!
Now, wanting to impress you all (that would be the Book Binge Ladies) I went and looked for a few e-books I wanted to buy. So I end up at Fictionwise and I go to download a few e-books (Ashleigh Raine's two that Katiebabs reviewed) only I get some sort of techno-geek language.
In other words, what file type would you like to download.
I read them and well, none of them say 'e-book reader' so I'm looking through and it seems that something called secure mobi-pocket gives me about 12 types of files to choose from. Sweet! I can figure it out from the librarian after I order.
Uh, yeah. Apparently mobi-pocket is a program and for the last hour I've been trying to figure out how to convert a .prc file into something my reader can read.
*off stage scream*
Yeah, so I'm completely bagged and have no clue why I can't find a conversion program. Okay, I downloaded one but it just disappeared into thin air. It's on my computer somewhere and now I just wish I knew where so I could at least delete the damn thing.
Anyways. Anyone have any helpful hints? Anyone know how to convert the file. If not, anyone have a mobi-pocket thingie cause I have a few books for ya.
My head is pounding so hard I feel like I need a really good cry.
Or a bagful of Tylenol.
Not wanting to be a cry baby I'm heading down to get some headache relief!
Edited: Headache has calmed down cause of Tylenol.
I have converted the files from .prc to .html and then it went to the librarian and it shows as a .imp but I can't get it on the reader. HELP!!
