When you said

"Samsung phone to my lap-top. Nothing happened apart from a lot of empty folders."

You mean you tried to copy the books from the phone but nothing was copied over?

Thank you

Hello - yes, tried to download books from Samsung to laptop.


Just had a lot of empty folders moved but no books.

Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
Did you see the books on the Samsung via the computer?

And where did these books originally come from?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

The books were already on the Samsung, they were linked to the Kobo.


The books originally came from the Kobo web site

Thanks

The books cannot be transferred to the Kindle.

The Samsung reads them as it uses the Kobo B&N app, but Kindle (being from the competitor) wont run this, or read the books.

The same is also in reverse, the Kindle books cannot go onto the Kobo sorry.

You will need to purchase another Kobo, or a Tablet (that can use the Kobo B&N app) in order to read the books again.

I know its not ideal, but it is what these companies do to keep you reliant on their devices.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
