If your tablet will not work with the mobile app, you may be able to transfer an ebook from your computer to the tablet. You must install a reading app to your device, then transfer the book from your computer using the 3M Cloud Library App. Other free reading apps may also work as long as they allow you to register them with an Adobe ID, but the ones in this solution have been tested and work well with the 3M service. *If these instructions do not work for the Kindle Fire, try manually transferring the epub file using these instructions
Aldiko Reader for Kindle Fire: follow these instructions to install
Aldiko Reader for other Android devices: Google Play/Android Market |
Amazon Appstore for Android
*You may also use the free Nook for Android App available from Barnes & Noble for other Android devices - download here
Make sure Adobe Digital Editions is installed. Get Adobe Digital Editions
You will also need to make sure that the Adobe ID that you have registered the eReading app on your device matches the one on your PC.
Install the 3M software for PC from http://ebook.3m.com
Connect your device to the computer with its USB cable.
Open the 3M Cloud library software
Check out a book and then open the 'My Books' tab in the PC Software
If your device is connected properly, a 'transfer to device' message will appear on the book jacket cover on the 'My Books' tab for all of your checked out books. Click on the book to transfer it
Properly eject the device from the computer.
If using Aldiko, open that app and then choose 'Files'.
Then choose 'Digital Editions'
Choose the book title and tap 'open' in the upper left corner
If you do not see the book you just transferred, make sure that you have registered your Adobe ID in the Aldiko app by tapping on the menu icon (bottom of the app, the icon looks like a page with lines on it) and then choosing settings
Note that Freading users may see the 3M Cloud books in their Freading app on the Kindle Fire, but testing has shown that a more fully featured reading app like Aldiko provides a better experience overall with 3M eBooks.
You can return it early or wait for the rights to read it have expired (you are encouraged to return books early, when possible!).
If you want to return the book early, then you will need to log in to your Cloud account using one of the 3M apps and then select 'check in' from your book shelf.
To remove books from the device, open the Aldiko app and select 'list view' from the home screen. Open the "More" icon (down arrow in a circle) to the right of a book title and then select the 'Delete' icon.
You can also delete a book by connecting the Fire to your PC and using Windows Explorer to browse to the Kindle's Digital Editions folder to find the file.
This action will only delete the book file from the device, not from the Digital Editions folder on your PC. See this help file for more instructions on file cleanup.
