    Hi guys I'm trying to set up an Epub reader on my psp 3000 on pro 6.2 perm. I've installed PSPKVM and I installed albite reader 2.2 (no touch) inside pspkvm but I can't browse the files on my memory stick to find the books.

    Is this because it's running inside the java emu or is the programme just messed up.

    If anyone could maybe have a look that would be brilliant or if there are any suggestions for another Epub reader that would be amazing.

    No you cant. Bookr V8.1 only reads
    PDF(some has Issues with), .txt, PalmDoc, DJVU (????), CHM (????) and HTML Files

    Is there any way to view MOBI Ebook Files though? PSPKVM + Mobipocket Reader does not work. Can not detect the MemCard

    You could convert the files via Calibre, just a thought.

    Never heard of that. Will check it out. Tried another Program, but that did not work out all that well for some reason. Bookr would show the PDF Files, but when I go to another Page, it would Error. Also tried the zBookr, but that did not work either. Would show the Epubs, but cant read anything on it, or it would come up saying the Files are corrupted or whatever.
    But will give Calibre a shot.

    Nope. Even after Converting still wont open up on the Vita. PSP, get them to work just fine with the PSPKVM + Albite Reader. But as for Bookr and zBookr, nothing.
    With the Bookr Apps, when trying to view PDFs that are more than 1 Page:
    Error in Page 2: Syntaxerror in CMap after /CMapName
    Epubs I get:
    Error: invalid or corrupt file
    - PDFs just get a bunch of messed up Texts.

    I used Calibre to convert EPUB/MOBI to FB2, used latest version from here: http://sd6719.narod.ru/ and all opened perfectly.

    Opened and worked perfectly on a Vita?

    Edit: Indeed it works. FB2 is good enough. Want to see if I can convert to either PalmDoc, DJVU or CHM to see about which one works with the Normal Bookr.

    Edit II: Unfortunately, HTMLZ does not work. FB2 kind of works though. Granted there are some odd Symbols, but it will be good enough for those who want to use the Normal Version. If I can figure out a way to get a normal HTML File working, maybe that might work.

    Edit III: HTML Files will work. Convert any Document either Epub or Mobi to HTMLZ, then Extract with WinRAR. Take that Folder and place wherever on the MemCard. Then just select the index.HTML File. On the PSP, you will get a Warning saying:
    There is not enough memory. Close Tab or go to (Tools)>(Settings)>(View Settings) and set (Conserve Memory) to (on). The (Conserve Memory) Feature may help in some cases.
    To do this, just press Triangle to show the Internet Explorer Options, go to Tools and follow the Instructions.
    Personally, the FB2 Files are better since you can Rotate them and has no Issues on the Vita
