Now, I ran into another problem, with Books. A free book from Starbuck downloaded only 883Kb, which gave me a nice view of the book cover, but no other hint. Today, after redeeming a $25 card, and getting no credit, I downloaded a book, Yellow Submarine, a 319 MB item. The book was free from Apple. Again, only the cover.
So, I copied the two .epub files, and paste them on my Desktop. Adobe Digital Editions opens the unprotected .epub files. Interestingly, it showed no picture of the book covers, but a nice index of the content. Through Adobe, I was able to see that there was an error:E_Pkg_Encryption_Xml_Syntax, which would not allow mw to view the contents. I sent a report to iTunes.
It is possible that ptotected Book files may work, but I would not trust iTunes, at this point.
By the way, when I finished the download to Yellow Submarine, I got a puzzling popup:
. I clicked ok, and the credit showed up.Your credit balance is out of date
What's the matter with them? I will report, if I get a reply.
