Did you use the Overdrive Media Console to transfer your book to your iPad?  If you didn't that would be the problem.  All of our iPod/iPad compatible books need to be saved onto your device using Overdrive.  It works like (and sometimes with) iTunes. 

You can put Overdrive on your computer and connect your device to get your books, or there is also an Overdrive app you can download for Apple devices.  Both versions can be found on the download page.

Unfortunately the books don't work immediately by saving them directly to your portable device from our site.  You always have to run them through Overdrive first.

You can find other info on Overdrive with our quick start guide.  There is also a great tutorial on how to use Overdrive.

If you have further problems and/or questions, please let us know - thanks!
