One thing you can do to ensure your files download faster is to:
- Go to your Documents folder on your computer
2. Click on the My Digital Editions folder
3. Delete all unwanted files from that folder (any files you're done using)
This will free up some space on your hard-drive and allow incoming files to download much quicker. If you do this every once in a while, when you find you've downloaded a number of titles, you'll see faster downloads.
