    Can not Download Newly Purchased Ebooks to ipad

      Earlier today I checked out a sample of Grammar Girl's Quick & Dirty Tips for Better Writing and The Grammar Devotional: Daily Tips for Successful Writing from Grammar Girl and dediced to purchase them.  The samples downloaded easily via 3G and now the purchased books states that wi-fi is needed to download, what gives. (This was my first time trying a sample ebook on my ipad.)

       

      Grammar Girl's Quick & Dirty Tips for Better Writing order number 157065711

      The Grammar Devotional: Daily Tips for Successful Writing from Grammar Girl order number 157065755.

       

      Note:  When I first purchased the above books they did download via 3G and it seemed that it was not the full book so I deleted them from my ipad and am now trying to download them again.  They are in my library on the website. 

       

      Does any of this make any sense?  Shouldn't I have been able to download them again via 3G if they are in my B&N library?

          Regarding iPad, this is from the summary page for those eBooks:

           

          Note: Not compatible with Mac and Blackberry Clients

           

          I'm afraid I don't know why they have compatibility issues with Mac Clients but there is a good chance this is what the problem is.

           

          Regarding samples, it doesn't surprise me those would download fine. They are a different eBook, very small, and the few I have looked at are DRM free.

            I agree, the ipad is not a Mac client.  I've had the ipad app ever since it was announced on the B&N website and have had no problems in the past with downloading my entire library and on the same day the app downloaded another book at the same time.  I think it has something to do with the fact that I downloaded the sample first.

             

            I was able to download the books via wi-fi at home but there's no reason why it didn't download with the 3G.

             

            Thanks for all of your answers and trying to help, I appreciate it.

              @lilk,

              What is it that indicated it was not the full NOOKbook that downloaded?  Also, have you synced your library on NOOK for iPad?
