How does the Bluefire APP on the iPad work with EBL JHU e-books
Librarian Sharon Morris was able to successfully download and use the BlueFire App to read JHU e-books on the iPad!
The trick though is in the authorization – the username and password you use on the iPad must be the same as what you have on your computer and in Adobe Digital Editions.
- Connect to your computer by USB cable after installing BlueFire.
- In BlueFire click the "I". This device must be authorized message
- Adobe ID and Password Username & Password (same as on the your computer)
- You can transfer ebooks from your computer (directions are in the BlueFire manual) or you can use the iPad directly to connect to EBL and download.
If you have authorized your computer, Adobe Digital Editions does not "lock" your eBooks and other digital publications to that computer — they are assigned to you through your Adobe ID. This means that you can transfer library items to up to six computers and six supported mobile devices. Before you can transfer items between computers, you must authorize both computers with your Adobe ID and connect the supported e-reader device to your computer before launching Adobe Digital Editions.
Adobe Digital Editions, also known as ADE, automatically detects the presence of your device and offers to authorize it with your Adobe ID. If you have not authorized ADE with your computer, you will need to complete that first (Digital Editions guides you through that process: View the Activation and Authorization topic). Both Digital Editions and the device must be authorized to be able to transfer protected content to and from the device. Unprotected content can be transferred to and from the device without authorizing either the device or Digital Editions, but Adobe strongly advises authorizing Digital Editions as it gives you content portability for your protected books, whether on Digital Editions or the supported device.
I hope that this information has helped but please feel free to email me with any e-book or e-reader questions that you may have in the future.
