How do I open make iBooks regognize two books created in iBA as different books/files? (iBooks opening separate books as the same file)

I am trying to load two different books created in iBooks Author into iBooks. These books were exported instead of uploaded to the iBookstore, therefore I download them and then open with iBooks on an iPad.
Here is my problem:
When I download a book (Book A), it opens in iBooks correctly. If I download a second book (Book B),  instead of opening  Book B, iBooks re-opens Book A. This also happens vice-versa if I delete Book A and then upload Book B. Essentially, both books cannot be loaded in iBooks at the same time, and iBooks treats the second download/open attempt as the second book being opened, when in actuality it opens the wrong book.
When I looked at the authoring files, I saw they had the same title listed in the Book Pane in iBA. Even when this title is changed, the books fail to open correctly in iBooks.
Has anyone run into a similar problem? Also, I am wondering if legacy meta data is a possible reason for iBooks to open the same book twice instead of loading and opening the new book? (if this is the case, is there a way that this legacy meta data can be deleted)?
Thanks in advance for your help/support.

Update: Solved.
Either creating a new file or saving the old as a template file & renaming it solved my problem.

  • I am trying to create a button in flash that will display 4 separate images at the same time when clicked.  I can't get the images to stay on when I take the mouse of the button.  I need the actions script code to make this happen.

    I am trying to create a button in flash that will allow the user to click on the button and 4 separate images show up at the same time.  I can get the images to appear when I click the button but they will not stay on the screen.  I need to know what code I use to make the images stay once the button is clicked, then I need to know exactly where I place that code.  It does not appear to be possible to add the action code to the buttons layer since each time I add a new layer I just get another "up" "over" "down" and "hit" line.
    Thank you in advance

    It is not clear how you are trying to realize this from your description.  If you are trying to create this within a button symbol it will not work.  Explain your approach and if there is code involved, show what you have so far.

  • Two separate versions of the same file corrupted in different ways...

    I was working on a Photoshop CS4 file last night that was created in CS4 and has only been opened on this machine in CS4. I saved the file and closed Photoshop. When I open the file today, all my layers are gone, flattened into one Background layer, and the image looks like colored TV static. On top of that, the separate, older version of this file with a different name (created earlier in the week on the same machine in the same CS4) will not open at all - I get the error message, "Could not complete your request because the file is empty" and the file size has mysteriously shrunk to 76 KB from 20+ MB. What happened?! I'm guessing these files are corrupted beyond recovery, but why and how did this happen? Has anyone had this or a similar problem? I want to know how to prevent this from happening in the future. Please help! Thank you. =)

    Thanks for the suggestion, Chris.
    Same issue, new question - don't ask me why I did this, but while both Photoshop and the now corrupted file were open, I changed the name of the folder containing the file, then continued to save the open version of the file without first closing it and reopening it from the newly renamed folder. Could this have caused both files in that folder to become corrupted in different ways? The other file that gives me the "file is empty" error was not open at the time, but it was in that folder. I'm thinking maybe by changing the path to the files while Photoshop was running, that could have triggered this. ?? I have 3 1TB internal drives raided to read as 1 drive, so I'm really hoping that one of these disks is not dying on me as you suggested. I was also backing up an external drive using BackBlaze when this all occurred - any possible connection? How can I find out if one of my three raided drives (and which one) might be going bad?
    Thanks!!

  • Get Info sees different "Open With" for the same file on different computer

    I've got a laptop (17") and a desktop, both with OSX 10.4.3. I had a disk problem with the laptop, but was able to get everything off the disk, reformat it, and put it all back. Everything's been working fine until today, when I tried to use the Equation Editor in Office. It wouldn't work. As I tried to chase down the problem, including reinstalling Office, I realized that my laptop was seeing certain Office files using GetInfo as "Open With" Netscape. I compared this with the settings on the desktop, and they were different. Different applications, different icons, even.
    Then I noticed that when I have the CD in the laptop and do GetInfo on a file there, or even look at the icon, it's different from what appears when I look at the same file on the desktop. So it appears to be an OSX issue, not a Microsoft issue.
    I've rebuilt permissions several times. I changed the OpenWith settings, but that didn't solve the problem. But I think it's because other Office files are being misread by the OS, too.
    If anyone has a diagnosis (and hopefully, a cure), I'd really appreciate it.

    Hi, Jim.
    You wrote: " I realized that my laptop was seeing certain Office files using GetInfo as "Open With" Netscape."If you are seeing more than just Office documents displaying the incorrect default application, this could indicate a corrupted Launch Services cache or preferences on the affected Mac.
    In associating documents with applications, Finder employs Launch Services. Launch Services employs several files to associate documents with applications and vice versa. When these files become corrupted, this can result in problems including:
    - The wrong applications being launched when double-clicking a file.
    - Multiple copies of a single application appearing in the Open With menu for a given document.
    - Incorrect icons appearing on files, folders, or other objects.
    The following steps will remove all of the files used by Launch Services. Be sure to read these instructions entirely, including the Notes, before proceeding.
    1. Quit all running applications.
    2. Trash the following two files in the Computer > Macintosh HD > Library > Caches folder:
    - com.apple.LaunchServices-0140.csstore
    - com.apple.LaunchServices-014xxx.csstore
    where xxx is the uid number for the affected account in the NetInfo database. Type your Admin password when prompted to authenticate the deletion of the first file. See Notes [1] and [2].
    3. Trash the com.apple.LaunchServices.plist file in your Home > Library > Preferences folder. See Note [3].
    4. Restart your Mac.
    5. Log in to your account.
    6. Empty the Trash.
    Do not empty the Trash until after you have restarted your Mac.
    Notes:
    [1] Step 2 will result in you being prompted to approve the launch of the application associated with a document the first time you double-click a document. These alerts are a result of the security feature in Mac OS X. The list of applications which you have previously approved are saved in the caches deleted in step 2.
    [2] The first user account defined on your Mac is generally uid 501, the second uid 502, and so forth. For example, the second file ID for the first account would becom.apple.LaunchServices-014501.csstoreYou can find the uid number for any account as follows:1. Launch NetInfo Manager, which is in the Computer > Macintosh HD > Applications > Utilities folder.
    2. Select users in the middle column of the NetInfo Manager window.
    3. Select the desired user account in the right column of NetInfo Manager.
    4. The data for the selected user, including uid, is displayed in the lower pane of the NetInfo Manager window.[3] Step 3 will reset to default values all associations you have created between specific file types and applications. For example, if you set PDFs to open in Adobe Acrobat instead of Preview, they would now open in Preview again until the association of PDFs with Acrobat is reset. You may want to skip step 3 to see if the other steps resolve the problem. However, if skipping step 3 does not resolve the problem, running steps 1-6 again, including step 3, should resolve the problem.

  • Two users opened the same file at the same time with file on Win2K Server

    I just had a problem with a file that could not be saved. After a little investigation I discovered that two users had the same file open at the same time. This is with both users using InDesign CS2 and saving to a Windows 2000 Server. Any ideas how this even happened? The only thing I can think of is if they both opened the file at the exact same time but even that I doubt. I guess the more likely possibility is that the user on 10.5 (which we have had a lot of problems with, it's hard to tell how many of them are CS3 problems (yes CS3) and how many are Windows 2003 Server problems) had InDesign CS2 flake out and not tell her the file was open. Has anybody else seen this? The other user was using 10.4. Both computers have the most recent updates for the OS and for their various adobe products.

    I have videos on mov file and my quick time player does not play them.
    The MOV file container is the generic QT file container. Any audio and video data compatible with the computer system used to create the file can be placed in the MOV file container. Unfortunate, other systems cannot play the file unless they too are configured with the same components as those used to create the file. The normal procedure here is to use the Finder "Info" or alternative media play "Inspector" window to determine what codecs were used to create the original file and, if they are available for your Mac, install them on your system for playback use. Also be advised that some "legacy" codecs may require playback in the QT 7 Player for proper QT support.
    I opened with other players, there is no sound. Then I opened the same file on my windows 7, it plays perfectly with the sound and everything? What is the problem?
    This would indicate these players either access your QT codec component configuration which does not include the required codec or the app has its own built-in codec support which does not include the required audio codec but you Windows 7 media player is configured with the required codec support. This may incidate the use of a really old codecs that may or may not be available/supported on a Mac any longer.

  • Using Illustrator CS and being able to open the same file on two machines!

    Hi,
    Don't know if anybody can help?
    I have been using macs for many years and now we have moved over to windows!
    We are using a server (not sure which type? NT?) and we have found that with the Mac you could not have two users in the same file but with Windows I can be in an Illustrator file and a colleague can also open the same file - no error message comes up or anything! We can then both do changes in that file and the last to save has the updated file.
    Can we do anything so you get a error message for the second user?
    Any ideas?
    Thanks
    Carole

    Hi,
    this does not make sense? Its the SAME version of Illustrator as that was on the Mac but when working on the PC you can both be in the file. On the Mac you get an error message saying the file is already open and you cannot access it.
    This must be a Windows issue or a Server issue as the problem is not on the Mac?

  • How do I stop more than one user opening the same file?

    I'm about to install Lion Server and we're concerned that more than one person will be able to open the same file at the same time. Can this be prevented? If not it seems to make the concept of a server pointless?
    Any help appreciated. Already annoyed I have to phone and order 10.7 Server as it's no longer on the App Store. Can't run 10.8 as the Mac Pro is too old and Apple have cut us off.

    The file server software supports file locking, but multiple file access is application-dependent. In some cases it's entirely valid for multiple users to access the same file. It's up to the application to allow or deny this.
    Ordinarily, if an application requires exclusive access it should flag the file accordingly when it opens the file. This will prevent other users from opening the file. However, it's not up to the server to do this.

    Moved iTunes library to an ext hard drive to make space on my int drive... Followed steps from apple.  Now I cannot access my music... It says: "File could not be used because the original file cannot be found.  Would you like to locate it?"
    I moved my iTunes library to my external hard drive some time ago and I followed the directions listed here on the apple support page.  It did copy my library and now is on my hard drive... I can open iTunes and use it to sync all of my devices but I would like to play my music... I can see all of my music files but can not play them if I click on an album or song it says the following:  "(file name) could not be used because the original file cannot be found.  Would you like to locate it?"  I click locate but do not know where to go from there?  I need a way to access all files and not to hunt down one at a time on my hard drive... I am pretty sure I deleted the original library to make space on my internal drive which was the reason for moving it.  I have tried and tried to fix it and do not have a lot of time to do so with a one and two year old at my house who do not like it whenI sit down at my computer.  What to do???  Any help is much appreciated!!!

    See Make a split library portable. Move all of the bits of the library together in the the correct shape and it should work. Or undo exactly what you did and then start over.

  • How can i have the same files on my iMac as i do my Macbook Pro?

    Im no computer whiz but i know more than the average joe. But when it comes to things like this im not an expert. I am a Photograher, Graphic Designer, and Videographer. I use my Macbook Pro on the go and my iMac in home. I would like to be able to have a matching folder structure for all my files and have both computers running the same aperture libraries and final cut libraries. Essentially a mirrored machine. Or just a directory that i can acsess from both of them. I assume this would be the work of a server? I just dont know enough about how fast would it be if i had my aperture library referenced off of a server attached to my home network and i was connected via wireless N "i could do ethernet but that would require me to venture to the basement" Also i assume that i would be able to connect all of these external drives i have to it? Say i had drive A1 and B1 A1 would be the master and B1 would be the back up and so on for A2 and B3? kinda like a raid set up so i can have a drive for photographery thats backed up one for video thats backed up and so on thanks.
    Also could i use such server to remotely render files for my applications? Such as Final Cut, After Effects, or Cinema 4D?
    Also this is all based around a Mac Mini Server as i dont have the money to be spending thousands of dollars. "I already did with my computers haha."
    Thanks i appreciate it in advance!
    If any of this was confusing i can re write it all thanks!

    I'm trying to do something similar with my iMac set up as an Open Directory server with network accounts, and then having my MacBook bind to it for login and home folder syncing. I still don't have it working the way I would like, maybe someone here could help me. I'm no expert, I found an up-to-date book at my university library, but it doesn't mention mobile accounts.
    What I did:
    1. Installed Server on my iMac and configured it for network accounts. I made a few test accounts.
    2. Configured the test accounts for mobile home folder and mobile syncing. I also configured the path to the home folder to be the server (iMac).
    3. Under Users and Groups preferences on my MacBook, made my iMac the network account server.
    What I got:
    1. I could login to any of my test network accounts from either computer.
    2. I could could create files on my MacBook and have them automatically sync with my iMac, and vice versa.
    What I didn't get:
    1. When I removed my iMac from the network, I could not log in to ANY account on my MacBook, not even local user accounts.
    2. If I made a change, such as in iPhoto on my MacBook, then made some other changes in iPhoto on my iMac, the sync can sometimes produce the wrong results, i.e. imports added photos, but not changed foto albums. (This would not be a problem on a dedicated server, but this could be a show stopper for the parent unless there is a good work around.)
    For me the show stopper is not being able to login without the iMac on the network. I remember NetInfo from the NeXTSTEP days and I thought the reason we went with OpenDirectory was so we could login without the server being connected. If anyone knows how to get OpenDirectory to work without a network, please let me know, and no - I do not want to install Server on my MacBook and make a clone directory.
