How to Transfer eBooks to Another Computer


There are several easy ways to transfer your eBooks to another computer. The most time-consuming part of it will be waiting for them to transfer to the electronic device you're using to move them, but besides that waiting time, this should be a very simple process. Your two main options are using an iPod or other MP3 player, or burning the eBook to a series of CDs or a DVD. Having a basic knowledge of how to find and move files on your computer is all you'll need to transfer your eBooks.

Things You'll Need

  • eBook
  • iTunes or other music player
  • iPod or other MP3 device
  • USB cable
  • CDs
  • Locate the eBook in iTunes or the equivalent music player on your computer.

  • Connect your iPod or MP3 player to your computer with the USB cable, which may have come with the player; if not you will need to purchase one.

  • Transfer the eBook to your MP3 player by clicking and dragging the file from its folder into the MP3 player's icon on your desktop or in your music player.

  • Take the MP3 player to the computer you want to transfer the eBook to; after you plug it in with the USB cable, click on the title of the eBook and drag the icon to the desktop or to the music player.

  • Burn the eBook to a CD if you do not have an MP3 player or, if it does not fit, onto a DVD, then copy it to the other computer from the disc.

Tips & Warnings

  • Do not violate any copyright laws. If you have purchased the eBook, check to see how many computers it is authorized for. If it is open source, there are no limitations.
