I have a book published in 2009 with an ISBN, When I attempt to post it, the PBS system does not recognise the ISBN. Is there any way to have the ISBN  acknowledged by the PBS system?

I do know I can post his book by posting it as if it did not have an ISBN (which I have done). ISBN: 380933 It woud just be nice to have the "real" ISBN in the system.

Is it saying it is a valid ISBN, but not in the system or is it saying its not a valid ISBN? If it says its a valid ISBN, it should give you a screen to enter the book by its own ISBN by entering all of the data so it is listed correctly.

Thaks Melanie - you helped me work it out. I was just searching for the ISBN, and getting the message that no books were found with those parameters. So, I immediately went to "post without an ISBN". After your reply, I went to the post books page, and put in the ISBN there - and, lo & behold, a page came up so I could enter all the appropraite information, which I did (and uploaded a cover pic too).

Thanks for helping me to "get it right"
