MurrayM:On my Kobo only books that bought from kobo ereader will download to it. Those bought using pc will not even by syncing download to the Kobo except by transferring with connected to PC. So I just use calibre to put them on now and just buy from amazon as the ones I buy are much cheaper there. Only buy from Kobobooks those amazon dont have which isnt many at all
Also easier to buy books for kindle. I buy books from Amazon on computer and they go straight to Kindle. On Kobo if I buy using computer I have to download to computer then connect kobo and transfer over. However if I buy from Kobo itself they download straight to Kobo. Much prefer Kindle for ease there
I don't quite understand your comment. I view the Kobo website on my PC and buy books (or tick the ones that I want to read the preview of), then on my Kobo I do a sync and the new books and previews appear on my Kobo, no need to hook my Kobo up to my PC. Is that not how you do it? The only time I have to connect my Kobo to my PC is if I'm using Calibre to load books I've got from somewhere other than Kobo, and even then it's possible to access Calibre wirelessly if you want to.
