However, in this case, I immediately saw that the epub file in question was not the usual single entity but was divided into 15 or so mini-files: split, in other words. When I clicked on the first of these, here is what I got:
"Windows cannot open this file:
To open this file, Windows needs to know what program created it. Windows can go online to look it up automatically, or you can manually select it from a list of programs on your computer."
I then instructed Windows to look it up online:
"Use the Web service to find the appropriate program."
But when Windows did just that, it returned with this:
"File Type: Unknown
Description: Windows does not recognize this file type."
So I'm left baffled. What special software or procedure is necessary to open split epub files? (And, out of curiosity, why can't Windows deal with this situation?)
Any information at all would be helpful at this point. No one seems to know anything about this subject. I certainly don't, despite extensive online searches before coming to Geeks To Go.
