Don't Panic!
The Good Bad News:

* You're not crazy: The dark powers that be are conspiring against you.
* A lot of stuff is complicated on purpose with the intent to make you feel like a failure
* (Seriously! Consider HDMI, it's purpose is literally to make it difficult to watch a movie you've purchased. The technology world is riddled with such false solutions that capitalize on making things intentionally difficult and unintuitive.)
* A lot more stuff is complicated because it wasn't designed to by someone who uses it

It's always an uphill battle when someone is already out to get you, so if you can fight the power and win even one out of four times, you ought to feel really great about yourself!

So don't give up just because it's hard. You can do it! You're smart. Just take guesses, believe in yourself, and give it time. You'll get there!

Adobe Community: iPad Digital Editions?
Another way to transfer DRM .epub books to iPad is to use Dropbox.

The Dropbox app on the iPad can then open them in Bluefire.

Dropbox will initially say 'Unable to view file', but if you click on the top right icon in Dropbox it will give options such as 'Open in Bluefire Reader' and 'Open in OverDrive', depending what is installed.

(Just checked, the Bluefire option works fine but that route into OverDrive doesn't seem to work for me.)

Still a bit indirect, but saves the horrors of iTunes (for those whose opinion of iTunes is similar to mine ....)
