ePub eBook

EPUB is a free and open e-book standard by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). Files have the extension .epub.

An EPUB file can optionally contain DRM as an additional layer, but it is not required by the specifications. In addition, the specification does not name any particular DRM system to use, so publishers can choose a DRM scheme to their liking. However, future versions of EPUB (specifically OCF) may specify a format for DRM.

There are a variety of options for publishers who want to create digital editions. Some vendors provide a high service model, where publishers can simply send a pdf and detailed instructions to their vendor. The vendor then creates the digital edition from scratch and provides a high quality product the publisher can offer its readers. Unfortunately, high service comes at a high price. This kind of vendor is ideal for a company with a big budget and no time to get involved in creating a digital edition.

Digital Edition Converter is  a solution that tries to capture  the need of many user to convert digital editions to PDF file without the high cost. Using a highly intuitive wizard model, user can converter their own digital editions ebook in about five minutes.

How to fix Protected Page error on sony reader?

If you have problem that public library PDF and ePUB cannot coexist on my reader. you can’t open library ebook on sony reader PSR-600,  it show error message “Protected Page”.

Some library books are Adobe PDFs, some are Adobe EPUB (both DRM protected). You can have one or the other – not both types of DRM – on the Reader.

From the Sony website (this was for the 505, but I’m sure it is the same for the 300 and 600).

This issue happens when Adobe DRM protected ePub and PDF eBooks which have been borrowed, both exist on the Reader.

You can borrow epub and pdf books from your library, but be careful to never have both epub and pdf library books on your reader at the same time, as there is a conflict and you will not be able to access them. A Protected Page! error occurs on the Reader when opening a borrowed book that is in the ePub or PDF format when borrowed Adobe DRM-protected ePub and PDF eBooks exist on the Reader at the same time.

To solve this issue, please follow these steps:

1. Delete all borrowed books from the Reader and transfer them again from Adobe Digital Editions or eBook Library.
2. Verify that all borrowed books are of the same format(ePub or PDF) before transferring them to the Reader.
