MS Reader Missing eBook Download Bug
Problem: "I could not download an new purchased ebook from my bookself. It seems the computer download the file to temporary folder but MS REader run only go to its library page. When I search the .lit from my computer I can't find any new ebook."
Answer from FictionWise:
This is a bug that sometimes just starts to happen with MS Reader. I first found it when it happened to me and my LIT files would no longer show up in my PC version of MS Reader. Microsoft then told us how to have the SAVE DIALOG appear when downloading -- this let's me save it to the Library folder. Here are the instructions (which are on our MS Reader help page):
Saving Microsoft Reader Files on your PC:
When downloading a Microsoft Reader eBook (.LIT), the default setup automatically launches the PC version of Microsoft Reader once the download completes. Some members prefer to have more control on where there Microsoft Reader eBooks are saved. To do this, you have to modify the file type association. Here's how:
For Windows 2000 and Windows XP:
Open My Computer.
Click the Tools menu and choose Folder Options.
On the Files Type tab, choose Lit (extension) Microsoft Reader
(File Types).
Click Advanced, and then check the box before "Confirm open
after download".
For Windows 98:
Open My Computer
Under the "View" menu select Folder Options
Click on File Types tab, choose Lit (extension) Microsoft Reader
(File Types)
Click on the Edit button
Check the box before "Confirm open after download"
