If you check out a Kindle book, you may notice that some are limited to transfer via USB only.
This is due to restrictions publishers have placed on their titles. At the moment, Penguin is the publisher that has chosen this limitation for their Kindle titles in Library2Go.
What USB transfer only means that the Kindle book cannot be delivered using wifi to a Kindle device or to a Kindle app. The title can only be transferred to a Kindle device using a USB connection.
I have a Kindle ereader. What should I do?
You can check out your title normally from Library2Go, but be sure to follow these instructions to transfer the title via USB to your Kindle reader.
I use a Kindle reading app on my mobile device. What should I do if I want to read a USB-restricted title?
A Penguin Kindle title cannot be transfered to a Kindle reading app. If you are using an iOS or Android device, or any other device compatible with the OverDrive Media Console app, we recommend you use that app instead for reading USB restricted ebooks, or for all of your ebooks from Library2Go. Just be sure to check out the EPUB version of the title, not the Kindle version. Here are instructions for using the OverDrive app on your iOS device (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) and for your Android device.
