Kobo glow - how to put epubs on from calibre or desktop

I reciently purchased a kobo glow for my wife and cannot find any detailed instructions on how to transfer the epub files I already have on my computer (not in kobo's app) or from Calibre's library. Could someone either direct me to a thread that covers this, or give me some easy to follow directions? Thanks in advance.

Dear Author has a decent set of instructions:

Click their "Calibre" tag for more on setting it up.

Or you can just drag and drop an epub file onto the root folder of your device while your device is connected with USB.

If you copy epubs to your Glo manually, I'd suggest creating a folder to put the epubs in and possibly subfolders below that. I find that once you get over few hundred books, it's much easier to use a decent directory tree to locate a specific file when I'm editing/replacing an epub.

David
