    I just downloaded iBooks to my iPod touch and I noticed that the Winnie the Pooh book is not there. So I went to the store to download it and the progress bar always seems to sit at 100%. I tried it with other books too and they do the same thing.

    I tried syncing with iTunes and no help there either. Is it an iBooks issue or is it just my touch?

    Thanks

    Same thing happening, 3 downloads all struck at 100%. There are a few thread about it over at the Apple support forums as well.

    I'm pretty sure is a bug: you can't sync PDFs from iTunes U. I have several PDFs in iTunes U from Apple and some universities. When choosing what books to sync with the iPhone I can clearly see ALL the PDFs, including the ones which are on the iTunes U library, but these are not synched at all. If I copy of of these PDFs to the Books section then it works.

    Well, it turns out it was the jailbreak as all my iBooks would show up on my iPod :)

    Just FYI people, the redsn0w 4.0 jailbreak takes out the ability to sync iBooks to your device

    Could you tell me where I could download it from? I jailbroke my iPod on Monday with version 0.9.5b5-3 of redsn0w and am having the same issues with iBooks. A link to the new version would be very helpful. Thanks.

    Yeah, it did. I just rejailbroke it with the redsn0w version 0.9.5b5-4 and when I opened iBooks, all the books I had try to download before were there.

    Only free books offered?

    Why does Ibooks store doesn't show me purchasable books? I only see free books offered?

    IDK, because I'm near positive that they offer books at a price(dont have an ipod touch).

    So far, I think only the US and maybe the UK get purchasable books at the moment.

    I guess that's a solution if you live outside the US or UK.

    The rest of the world gets the free, boring books, well except for Winnie the Pooh.

    That sucks but they always have Winnie the Pooh to entertain them.
