As of today, Calibre now has a driver for the PB. It seems to take a little fiddling to get it to recognize the PB, but it will eventually. This is the best way to load ebooks to the PB. There are plug-ins available for free that strip DRM from ebooks as well, and that will make all books readable on the PB using one of the ereaders available from App World.
When you have the DRM plug-in installed, you simply add an ebook to Calibre and the drm is automatically stripped.
Calibre will check the format and only send compatible books to the PB. Have fun!

Helpful posts on the subject. I cannot get Calibre to 'see' my playbook. I've verified that the PB is connected, but Calibre doesn't see it. Any suggestions? Thanks

Thanks.This worked and sent books to device in mobi and pdf format.
I can see in my z drive (playbook).
However I cannot see any icon on the PB that will open up the books.
Advice gratefully received!

I spent some time wrestling with the same problem - trying to get Kobo to see and read the books - but no luck. I eventually just bought a 3rd party app (Book Reader @ $0.99) and it works fine. Just use Calibre to send the book(s) to the PB, and then add them to the library in the app. This also works with epubs from our Public Library. Hope this is helpful. Bruce.
