Can you just connect your eReader to your computer, then click and drag it to your eReader instead?  I find that transferring books that way to the eReader is simpler and more effective than using a file manager.

no I'm afraid I can't..I have to use adobe to transfer the books....and I often have to run epub books thru calibre one more time for them to work but sometimes they don't work then either :-/ maybe I just need a new reader it's been thru a few pages if you say so ;-)

What kinds of problems are you getting? It may be in your Calibre settings. If you have it set up for the wrong device that may cause you problems.

What do you mean you have to use adobe to transfer the books?? What kind of ereader are you using?

I have an Iriver and the only way to get the books in to the reader is to put them in Adobe on the computer and transfer to the reader from there....

You should be able to use the drag and drop function on your iRiver eReader as it should mount itself to your computer as a standard USB mass storage device.  What model is your iRiver ereader?  As you shouldn't need to use Adobe to transfer books unless they are DRM protected.

If  downloading from Libraries, sometimes you have no choice but to use Adobe :)
