I purchased 3 graphic novels and received "Download Error" when trying to view them on my iPad. I am connected to the internet and a regular novel that I purchased at the same time downloaded fine. Thoughts/Ideas to help?
Just in case, the G.N.'s were Batman: Year 1, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, and Batman: The Long Halloween.

many have reported the same problem with the new update; what worked for me was de-register, delete, re-download, re-register. Now Watchmen and V/Vendetta work fine. However, all my other books were wiped out and had to be re-downloaded. I haven't seen any better suggestion tho.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

Thanks for the suggestion, although you are correct that this is not the ideal solution, this was the only option which would work for me and allow me to download my copy of the graphic novel.

I have just encountered the same problem. I have followed the solution advised above and still have the same problem. It is very frustrating! Does anyone else have a solution?

Download the new version of the app. Apparently no need now to delete the previous one or to deregister

Just been in contact with them as I'm having the same issue and tried all the suggested routes to resolve the issue with no luck. Apparently there is a problem with the ipad and iphone app and they're working on it and should be sorted in the next 24-48 hours.......we'll see!

I am thinking that this will cost amazon kindle as I will not be buying anymore books until it is sorted. Good to hear that someone is working on it though, fingers crossed eh!

I too contacted them this morning when my purchased book wouldn't download from the cloud. After speaking to two different people they confirmed in an email there is am problem with the cloud at the moment but didn't say when would be fixed. Frustrating

Ok, I just tried the deregstration from iPad again, then I deleted the icon from my iPad and registered again and I can now download too (Thanks Emma). Don't know what has happened but am just happy to be working again.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 7, 2012 9:17:23 PM PDT lose your previous books?

No my previous books re loaded automatically

There is clearly a problem and I am surprised they have not made an announcement. Until it is fixed there is no point buying new books if you intend to read them on an iPad

I had to de register and re register, then book downloaded to device. What a pain.

Unregister, delete, install, register worked for me.

I tried the de-register, delete, download, and register option. But I still cannot open the book. Is this also an issue with the Kindle for Andriod app?

Heloooo? How do you de-register?

You deregister by going to Amazon's website, logging into your account then going to Manage my Kindle, then choosing Manage my Devices.
