  1. You can install the Reader directly to your handheld. However, we recommend that you install the MobiPocket Desktop Reader first (thick red arrows on the flowchart) from here. (Alternative server: mobireadersetup.msi)
  2. When you connect the handheld to the desktop PC, the MobiPocket Desktop Reader automatically detects the handheld and installs an appropriate software on the handheld.
  3. Open the PRC file from the MobiPocket Desktop Reader. Click the Send button to send the book from the desktop PC to the handheld.
  4. Whenever you connect the handheld to the desktop PC, the MobiPocket Desktop Reader automatically synchronizes the book between the handheld and the desktop PC. You could read half of the book on the handheld, then finish reading on the desktop. Annotations are also synchronized.
  5. Alternative (thin blue arrows on the flowchart - use this method if you do not have a Windows PC or if you want to download the Reader from your handheld over the air): You can download the Free MobiPocket Reader directly to your handheld.
