Adding Ebooks to your iPad

(Note: Please make sure you have followed the instructions to create an Adobe Digital Editions account first.)

1.) Find the free Bluefire Reader app in the iPad app store and install it on your iPad.

2.) After the installation is complete open the Bluefire Reader app and click on info button on the bottom right side of the screen.

3.) Enter your Adobe account ID to authorize the device.

4.) Connect the USB cable from iPad to computer.  iTunes should automatically detect your device and open with the Devices listed on the left side of the screen.  If iTunes does not open automatically, start iTunes and the device will be listed on the left side of the screen.

5.) Select the iPad in the Devices list.  Then click the Apps tab. 

6.) Scroll down to File Sharing and click on Add.

7.) Go to your My Digital Editions folder (C:\Documents and Settings\ACCOUNTNAME\My Documents\My Digital Editions)

8.) Select the downloaded e-book you’d like to transfer.  Be sure to select the .pdf file, not the .acsm file.

9.) Click the Sync button in the lower right corner of the iTunes screen.

10.) Open BlueFire reader to find the e-book.
