Playbook not reading .acsm files purchased online.

Can anybody please assist me in getting the proper application for my Playbook 64G.

I cannot find an application that can read the .acsm file.

PLEASE help?

You can try Overdrive. Or you can try converting the file into some other formatt..

You can try to convert the file using Calibre - this can be downloaded for free.

There are some plugins that allow you to strip the DRM from the converted epub file so that you can load it onto the PlayBook.

I haven't personally tried this, but I've seen enough blogs on the internet about it to know that it should work.
