Can't read some stories.
« on: August 18, 2014, 04:09 PM »
So I am very new to this board (which is awesome by the way) I tried to download some stories and some of them are readable but, 2 of them are not.  One is called Life Support and is mobi and the other is my five daughters and it is epub.  I am not sure what it means but, my computer won't let me download them properly to read them.  I tried converting them but, it didn't work.  Can someone please help.  Thanks in advance.

Sorry about that the writer of the stories and writers are:

Life Support by Shadowed by Passion which was dowloaded with mobi
My Five Daughters by tea4tulips which was downloaded with epub

I guess I tried to convert them with my usual Microsoft software.  I can read the pdf files but, not the other ones.  When I try to open them in a different window it comes out all scribble and unreadable symbols.  I did try to convert them to pdf but, it didn't work for me so I am not sure what I am doing wrong.

Okay
Here is a solution. You can install Calibre, it lets you convert Epub, Mobi and other electronic format from here

I suggest try the portable version :)

Or you can go to here and convert the file into desired format

Also to read them you need a Ebook software, Alas there aren't many for Windows.
If you read on your smartphone you can get Reader software for your choice.
Still, if you want to read Epub or Mobi file on Windows PC/Laptop you can use there

Sorry about that it is really early here, yes the FBReader worked for me and I was able to convert the stories into a pdf file that I can read.  You have been a life saver because I have been looking for those stories for ages and getting nowhere.  You and this board are amazing.  Thank you so much again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
