DVDs & Blu-rays
My disc won't play. What should I do?
- It might be dirty or smudged. If so, please take a soft, lint-free cloth, and wipe gently in a straight line from the center of the disc to the edge. Only clean discs with a solution of water and mild detergent or rubbing alcohol. Never use abrasives, solvents or highly acidic cleansers.
- If you've tried to clean it and it still won't play, it might be scratched. Please report your unplayable disc here and we'll help you out.
Will Patrol ebooks work on my e-reading device (Kindle, etc.)?
Yes, the corresponding format will work on virtually all e-reading devices currently available.
What file should I download for my device?
For Kindle devices and apps, download the MOBI version of the ebook. For other e-reading devices, download the ePUB version. Finally, we also offer a PDF version of each ebook, however this should only be used as a last resort as e-readers typically do not support as many reading features for PDFs as for other formats.
How do I get the ebook onto my device?
For mobile/tablet devices, access your Virtual Bookshelf via your mobile browser, select the appropriate file format from the bookshelf to download the file to your device, and then open the file with your preferred e-reading app.
For Kindle eInk Devices, download the file from your Virtual Bookshelf onto your computer. Plug your device into your computer, a drive folder will appear on your desktop. Drag the ebook file into the "Documents" folder of your device. You can also add an ebook to your Kindle eInk device by emailing it to your Kindle email address (see instructions here).
Can I read Patrol ebooks on my computer?
Yes. There are many desktop e-reading apps that will allow you to read ebooks on your computer.
Do you provide illustration services?
Thanks so much for asking, but Patrol does not provide illustration services for outside projects.
