    Hey There,

    It seems that the xxx.opf file in the publication preview is containing the versioning info.


    Please try this.


    The xxx.opf file in filename.epub must have a line which looks like


    <meta property="ibooks:version">3.0</meta>


    Remove that line, save the file, rebuild the package and deliver.

    Ohh I see. I thought that you are getting this error in an epub. Nevermind. You can try following steps when exporting a preview of the book.


    1. With the book open, choose Share > Export, and click iBooks.
    2. Choose Standard Book for iBooks from the Export As pop-up menu.

    3. If you want, type a book version number in the Version Number field.
    4. (DON'T put any version number here. I think this is causing the problem)

    5. Click Next.
    6. Type a name for the book, choose a place to save it, and click Export.

    It took my book to go live within 3 days after it got successfully imported by Apple. Did you check whether Apple successfully imported your uploaded book? You can check it by going in iTunes Producer, Window > Lookup Status ... then enter Vendor Id/ISBN... and make sure that it says "Imported"


    Good Luck with the Book

    You can't download it on your iPhone since you made it an iPad ONLY compatible.
