For these devices, we recommend the eReader application. eReader software can read encrypted (Secure) or unencrypted (MultiFormat) Fictionwise eBooks.
Sending an eBook to the Palm Device: After downloading an eBook to your computer, you can use the Palm Install Tool to send the eBook file to your Palm device. We recommend saving all your eBooks to the same folder so you can easily find them. For example, if you are a PC user, make a folder called "Fictionwise" on your C drive and always save your eBooks there.
Saving the eBook file to your hard drive on some older browsers:
Older browsers will not properly set the default file name when
you attempt to Save an eBook file to your computer's hard drive.
Such a browser will show the default file name as "mw" as opposed
to the name of the eBook file (such as "Poe-Tell-Tale-Heart.pdb").
To save the eBook file using an old browser, simply type in a sensible
name in place of "mw," making sure you are using a ".pdb" file extension,
and select "All Files" on the file type pulldown in the Save dialog. Back to Top

Franklin eBookman (FUB, Palm Doc)
The Franklin eBookMan
can read either its own proprietary format (FUB) or it can read Palm
Doc files (PDB). The FUB format is generally more desirable because
it can display text formats such as italics and centering.
eBooks to your Franklin eBookMan device: To transfer
a file to your Franklin eBookMan, you must save the file in the
"Sync" folder. By default, this folder is c:\program files\Franklin
Electronic Publishers\Data\Contents, assuming you installed
the Franklin tools in the default location.
is a rather long path to find all the time, so we suggest you change
it to something simpler, such as C:\EbookManContents by
using the eBookMan Desktop Utility (first create the new sync directory
using windows explorer then go to the eBookMan Desktop utility,
select the File menu and choose Change Sync Folder).
all you need to do is save your files directly into your Sync folder,
then use the Synchronize button in the eBookMan Desktop Utility
to send the files to your device.
the eBook to your hard drive on some older browsers: Older browsers
will not properly set the default file name when you attempt to
Save an eBook to a file on your computer. Such a browser will show
the default file name as "mw" as opposed to the name of the eBook
file (such as "Poe-Tell-Tale-Heart.fub"). To save the file using
an old browser, simply type in a sensible name in place of "mw,"
making sure you are using a ".fub" file extension, and select "All
Files" on the file type pulldown in the Save dialog. Back to Top

Rocket eBook Reader and Gemstar REB1100/1150/1200/2150
The Rocket eBook reader and Gemstar REB1100/1150/1200/2150 are
devices dedicated to reading ebooks. The Rocket and REB1100 devices
can receive files uploaded from your PC using a cradle. The 1150,
1200, and 2150 class devices can receive files from the Gemstar ebook
site using the "Personal Content" feature. For all of these devices,
choose "Rocket/REB1100" as your MultiFormat eBook download option. The
files you receive will end in the extension: .rb
Sending an eBook file to the Rocket/REB 1100 Device: When
you download a Rocket eBook from Fictionwise to a PC that has your
Rocket eBook cradle and Rocket Librarian software installed, things
are easy. The Rocket Librarian should launch automatically after the
file is completely downloaded. If your Rocket eBook Reader device is
in the cradle and turned on, the Librarian will even offer to send the
file to the Rocket automatically! If you are downloading the eBook
file on some other PC (one that does not have the Rocket software
installed) then you will need to save the eBook file to your hard
drive. You may transfer the file to the PC that has your Rocket cradle
(using a floppy disk or some other means) and then import the file
using the Rocket Librian. (Import is under the Title menu.)
Sending an eBook file to the REB1150, REB1200, or REB2150:
In these cases, the device itself cannot download content directly from your PC,
but can only connect to the Gemstar web site via a modem, USB (REB1150) or Ethernet (REB1200) connection built into
the device. So, to get your Fictionwise eBooks to the device, you must
first download the rb file(s) from Fictionwise to your PC as above.
Then, you must upload the eBook file(s) to the Personal Content Server by clicking on
the Personal Content link, logging in, and following the instructions.
After you have uploaded your Fictionwise rb files to the Gemstar
Personal Content server, you may then download the eBooks into your
device over the device's built in modem.
Saving the eBook file to your hard drive on some older browsers:
Some older browsers will not properly set the default file name when
you attempt to Save an eBook file to a file on your computer. Such a
browser will show the default file name as "mw" as opposed to the name
of the eBook file (such as "Poe-Tell-Tale-Heart.rb"). To save the
eBook file using an old browser, simply type in a sensible name in
place of "mw," making sure you are using a ".rb" file extension, and
select "All Files" on the file type pulldown in the Save dialog.
Another option is to use the "bulk zip download" option to download
all of your eBooks in a single ZIP compatible file, then unpack them
using Winzip or some equivalent utility. Back to Top
