These are instructions on how to transfer a DRM-free ePub formatted eBook to your iPad for reading in iBooks.

Step One
Download the ePub title and save it on your desktop. In this example I will be downloading the iPad Programming book by Daniel H Steinberg and Eric T Freeman.

Step Eight
Check the Sync Books checkbox if it isn't already enabled.

If All books is selected then all your Books will be transferred to the iPad. If Selected books is selected then you will need to look below for the newly added Book and check the checkbox next to its title.

Now click the Apply or Sync button at the bottom right of the window.

You may receive a warning that this will erase all the books on your iPad if this is your first Books sync. Click the Sync Books button.

*Note: If you do not have iBooks on your iPad you can download it free from the App Store.

On the off chance that you have Dropbox on your desktop and your iPad, you can duplicate the ePub document to your Dropbox account. When you attempt to open the document in the Dropbox application, you'll get a mistake saying that you can't see the record. In any case, on the off chance that you touch the download symbol in the upper right corner, one of your alternatives will be to open the record in iBooks (accepting you have the iBooks application introduced). Touch that and you're ready.

Dude, thanks, but I hate iTunes. I'd prefer to use WinX MediaTrans to sync ePUB eBooks, PDFs, etc. from computer to my iPad fast and smoothly, with no data loss. Exporting or deleting iBooks from iPhone iPad can also be easily achieved with this smart tool.

I have transferred ePub ebooks from Windows laptop to iPad using both iTunes & email. Books appear in Book folder on iPad but I get an error message saying that they cannot be opened as the file maybe corrupted or not in the right format. Does this mean the book files are not DRM-free? Can ebooks which are not DRM-free be transferred?

One simple way is to email the epub file directly into the email registered on your iPad/iPhone. Open the email in your iPad/iPhone and Open it with iBooks.
