    Does anyone else have iBooks that they have converted and imported themselves? If so, how do you back them up along with all the highlights and notes? How have you set up your iCloud settings for iBooks?

    Have you tried just importing it as a PDF.

    You can't highlight/write notes in a PDF. Not in iBooks anyway.

    Yes. It seems that iBooks doesn't upload custom content to iCloud like iTunes Match does.

    Once I tried to use AppBackup to manually back up iBooks and then restore the device. Once restored I used AppBackup again to put the books back that's before I've ever opened iBooks after the restore. After AppBackup did its job I launched iBooks. Everything seemed perfect for a second until cloud sync kicked in and removed all the custom content (books, notes, highlights and all).

    So I guess if I want to use iBooks I would have to completely turn of sync and do things just on one device, manually.
    That was the reason I created the thread to see what setups people have come up with that work.

    i used to do ibooks alot, i practically read the entire eragon series on my ipod... but ive gotten a kindle since then and dont use ibooks any more at all... sorry i couldnt be more of a help...
    you have the latest ibooks installed? and theres no error like there was before with the jailbreak, and needing a work around? and its only the one book? maybe you need to use calibre to save it...
    sometimes there are tiny tiny little things that make it not an official "ebok?" so that would casue issues.

    I appreciate you trying to help.

    I've been using Calibre to convert PDFs, web pages and text files to ePub for the longest time. That's what I import to iBooks. I'm using the preset for iPad so things are generally quite readable. As to my iBooks version - I haven't gone to the newest one (version 3 I believe).

    A clarification: it's not just one ebook that disappeared. It's all ePub files I've imported.

    i remember when i was trying to import my stuff to my kindle fire, even though i converted them, i had to go go the advanced settings tab and tick off a box for ...
    like preferences, then output settings then (for my kindle now) i had to select mobi, then make sure that the personal document tag was ebok...
    im not sure if there are any other options for an epub other than default....
    but it might be something like that... also are you on calibre .9.9?
