Hi,

  1. If possible, turn your eReader off.
  2. Turn it over and locate the small hole on the back.
  3. Unfold a paperclip and slide an end into the hole.
  4. Press gently until you feel a click.
  5. Your eReader should restart.

Note: if there is no small hole, press & hold the power button for about 10 seconds, then turn it back on and check.

If that does not work, please uninstall the Kobo desktop program from the computer, then restart the computer, then download and reinstall it at
http://kobo.com/desktops

If it still does not work,

  1. If possible, back up any books or documents that you added to your eReader using Adobe Digital Editions, or that you manually added using your computer. You do not need to back up any books you bought from the Kobo Store.
  2. Press the Home button.
  3. Tap the Settings icon an the top left-hand corner of the screen.
  4. Tap Settings.
  5. Tap Device Information.
  6. Tap Factory Reset.
  7. Tap Reset Now.

 

To use your eReader after a factory reset you must:

  1. Set it up again using the free Kobo Desktop software.
  2. Sync your library to restore any Kobo books you own.

Please let me know if there is still any issue. Thank you.

I have done what you have suggested but to no avail. I still keep getting this message as the book starts downloading to my Kobo,"THE APPLICATION KOBO DESK TOP EDITION QUIT UN-EXPECTANTLY. MAC OS X AND OTHER APPLICATIONS ARE NOT EFFECTED. CHECK RELAUNCH TO LAUNCH APPLICATION AGAIN AND REPORT TO SEND MORE DETAILS TO APPLEOR SEND A REPORT"

Hello there! Please do the following to fix this issue.

 

Go to your mac hd icon then to the right there should be a house icon with your user name on it. Click this icon and look for a folder called library. Once inside library look for a folder called prefrences. Move any file that has kobo in it to the desktop. It should look similair to this

com. kobo.Kobo Desktop Edition.plist

Then restart and try to sync again.
