I can download books OK from the Kobo Site but I don't know what format and how to transfer to the Kobo when I download from other sites.

Any help would be appreciated.

Download and install calibre-ebook (http://calibre-ebook.com/). Kobo reads many formats, try epub.

Go to the site you want to download the book(s) Make sure kobo is plugged in Via USB ( its easier) open Calibre.

See Picture below:

1. Click on add books - navigate to where you downloaded the book, select it, then click open.

You will see it load into Calibre.

2. highlight the book(s) you want - Click Send to device.

3.Down the bottom right hand corner you will see it loading, only takes a few seconds, but a tick will appear beside the book as well once its loaded.



Edited: Calibre can convert to many different formats as well. Simply click the book you have loaded, Click Covert Books -- top right is a drop down box with various options.
