    • A. There is a free program (calibre) that converts ebooks to whatever format that you need. It may be a little inconvenient to download books to your desktop/laptop before adding them to your reader, but this unit is so appealing, it would be worth the extra step. Go to calibre-ebook.com to check it out.

    • A. DRM Protection basically is copy protection for digital files. This ereader does not accept DRM protected files. Most of these sellers have DRM protected books (especially their bestsellers and copyrighted books). If you want DRM books I would recommend a Kindle or if you like color a Nook.

      Was this answer helpful?
    • A. DRM (Digital Rights Management) software by Adobe is "protection" software used by public libraries. You can "check-out" e-books through your local public library web-site, but you don't get to own it. The software stops you from being able to access the e-book when your lending period expires. If you only intend to read books that you buy, I expect you will be able to find any book available in a format compatible with the ematic.

      Was this answer helpful?
    • A. Yes. Most readers accept books from any source. This particular one does not, so be prepared to buy one or more DRM removal programs, depending on how many sites you want to go to. The DRM keeps ebooks from being pirated, copied, and resold.

    • A. I suggest buying new books from borders, they have a website, and use the epub format. If there are any other online bookstores that offer the epub format use those for the E-Reader.

    I purchased this for $79 and usually I'm so stingy that I will place value on price rather than product. This time I couldnt. I had to return this product. It works well enough as an ereader. I synced it with my PC and loaded my books. I liked the fact that you could zoom text, change the light etc. I also liked the fact that i could load photos of my four month old as well as my music. Pretty convenient. That's where the "like" stops. The usuability of the device is rather poor. The menu and navigation buttons are difficult to grasp. The device is rather poorly designed in general. I found myself getting very annoyed with navigating through the menu and processes of the darned thing, that I just gave up. Also, it doesnt hold a charge for very long. I would charge it at work, synced to my PC, and the battery would DIE in the middle of a really interesting page turning portion of the book on the train on my way home...forcing me to find the page and try to read the book on my trusty i phone. Not good. Sorry. Not for me.

    This product works very well. You need to reset the settings: So the screen doesn't keep going black (I suggest setting it to "no automatic shut down") and to preserve the longevity of the battery (I suggest turning the brightness down to the "1" setting, it's set at "5" by default). If you download something onto the E-Reader that you want to delete, you connect it to your computer open the files on your E-Reader, right click on what you want to delete, and click on delete. You can listen to music you download onto E-Reader, but you need to use a program like Windows Media Player. Unfortunately you can't listen to the radio and read a e-book at the same time, for some reason you have to set the screen to shut off before you can get a signal for the radio stations. Over all this is a very good product, we bought three at one time and haven't had any problems with any of them. We've also ordered another one recently, to give as a gift.

    This is the second Ematic eReader that I have bought in the past year. The first one that I bought I got for my 10year old daughter. She loves it and has read so many books since I bought this for her at christmas time. I decided I wanted to have one for myself. I figured I could put my college texts on it also ... maybe. I was so disappointed when I recieved it. The box itself was torn up and none of the paper work was in with the product and on top of that the product didnt work at all. I tried to call Ematic and recieved no answer when I called the half a dozen times inbetween the times that the only paperwork that was in with the box suggests. I even left a voicemail and still have not recieved a call back. I was so fed up with waiting to talk to the company that actually makes the product that I finally took it back to walmart and got my money back. I am very disappointed with Ematic and would suggest spending the extra money and just getting a knook.

    I've had this ereader for @ 3 wks and I love it. You can't beat the price for what it has and does. An avid reader, I began collecting ebooks that interested me for months while I was saving for the new Kindle. I found this and jumped on it. Easiest thing to do is download 'Calibre' (freeware, beleive it or not) a powerful ebook database, add your ebooks to the prog on your pc and then just click once to transer to your ematic (must attach with cable provided to usb port)any or all your books. Your PC will recognize the device and give it a drive letter, treat it just like another drive. Copy, paste or drag and drop. I've listened to music, and played a movie already. 4 G is a lot of space for text--Right now I have @2900 books on the main drive and a movie and music on a 4 G micro card. Will soon get a $ gig. One thing I'd like to see changed: the manual is too small and sorely lacking. I still can't use the search function. If anyone knows how, please, please contact me or send me a link to get a >16 page user manual. One other thing, that battery doesn't last a month like the Kindle but the Kindle doesn't do as much. One more thing, tho it has a speaker, the ear phones give a far better sound. I hope this will be helpful to prospective buyers. So far I haven't purchased any ebooks directly to the device, but I'd rather do it the way I am anyway.

    I got this to be able to read E-books without carrying my laptop everywhere. The E-books have to be downloaded in E-pub format to be read well. when you use the large font half the page is lost and when you go to the next page you it starts ON THE NEXT PAGE. you can't scoll down like on a laptop. and even though it claims you can turn text so it's wider it still is hard to read I like my laptop Way better. The music part of this E-Reader works really well, it comes with earphones and the display is easy to read. Downloading is pretty easy and the plug & play connection is great. Battery life is really good and you can do a lot of different things with this e-reader

    There is nothing I don't like about this. Unlike the Sony that this replaces it can be used in the dark with the lighted screen. I have loaded several movies & music cd's on it. The built in speaker is not easy to hear but with the included ear buds you get plenty of sound. I wish I found this one first.

    I am thrilled with my purchase. Most of my courses require tons of research paper downloads, and this is saving me tons from not having to print those out. The sound quality for the mp3s is great. It is very easy to use and I haven't had any problems downloading ebooks. I Very highly recommend it. I will be ordering another for my mom later.

    I wasn't sure I was throwing my money away at first, especially after seeing the directions. I got a magnifying glass out to read those useless directions. Realized I didn't understand any of it. But after spending some time using and learning to use the E-book reader, I am quite happy with it. First of all, you can print out the directions in big enough letters to read them from the file that comes up on the drive you plugged it in to. Although it still didn't do me much good understanding how to download things to it. After trying several E-book companies, down loading books and finding out they wouldn't open. I found one that loads easy to the reader and works quite well. It's Boarders E-books. I found quite a few free ones. Didn't want to buy any until I found out if it would work. It loads them in EPub. After telling it to down load and then pressing the Sync button where it shows the device is recognized, off to the bottom left. Bingo, there they go. Disconnect it from the computer opened E-Matic up and went to E-Book, Digital Edition and there they all were. All six of them. Next to try and learn how to load pictures and music. Well, to make a long story short here, you have to look at the E-reader as a jump drive. When I plugged it into one of the empty USB ports, mine showed up as J drive. Just go to where you have your music and pictures stored on your computer and you can drag them into the drive it's plugged into, or you can copy and past them from one to the other. It puts everything in the right places. Next I tried to load a video. But it said I didn't have enough memory for that. I guess in order to do videos, you need that small memory chip. I'll buy one of those later. But everything works as stated. I turned down the back light to help keep the battery up as I hear they don't stay charged that long. When you consider what this E-matic does and what they give you with it. This thing is a heck of a buy. My Sister paid $35.00 just for a cover on her book reader and you get one free with this one and it does a heck of a lot more than many readers at three times the price. The color is good and the back light is great. Once you learn how to use it, you got to know your getting your monies worth.

    I bought this product on line for Christmas. Day of Christmas tried charging it but it would not charge, i jumped it from the computer but then it would not turn off had to use the reset button the back. because it was pasted the 15 days to return I had to send back to ematic. They roped me around and around till I threatened to let Walmart know that they would not help me. I finally got a return number which I sent right out to them. They say i sould have a responce in 15-21 day. I have called and they give me the run around. I still do not have my ebook back and I am getting rather mad. If they don't stand behind their product any better than this I will not recommend it to anyone. Walmart needs to re evaluate the company they deal with and the fact that you cant get it fixed or replaced in a timely manner. Here it is 3 months later and still can not use it because i do not have it. very unhappy
