Just to clarify. I did buy the books directly from Baen (same thing happened to all three). I've bought books from them before and transfered them this way without any problems. Also, I haven't had any trouble from books from other vendors.

As has been said, there's absolutely no reason to use ADE to transfer DRM-free books. You need only use for DRM-protected content.

Just to throw an idea out there, but does the device have to be registered with ADE before it will copy the book to the device?? ie; unless ADE thinks the device is registered with it, it feels it doesn't have permission to copy files to it?

I strongly suggest ignoring ADE and as others have suggested just copy the book straight to the reader. Can the Kobo download .epub from a web site? Could log into your baen account from the Kobo and download the ebook that way.

Wrong. Or rather, true for purchasing, but there can also be geo restrictions that are enforced with DRM. Believe me, what is currently being done with DRM is trivial compared to the evil that _could_ be done with it.

3rd parties CAN put DRM or other restrictions on sales they make.
Baen's contracts with other sellers, including Amazon and B&N, require that their books be sold without DRM. So it wouldn't matter where it was bought.

To quote from the details on a Baen book at B&N (though Amazon has EXACTLY the same wording):

"At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management)."

I've figured it out. Baen's files are zipped when you download them so I was trying to put zipped epubs onto my ereader DOH! Once I unzipped them, there was no problem,

Ah. That would explain it. It is possible to download files unzipped, but only one at a time. Thanks for letting us know the result!

If you're using Windows, then enable display of file extensions if you haven't already. The person who thought it a good idea to hide them by default should be shot. (When did they start doing that, btw; XP? Or even earlier?)

The problem with Windows (and DOS) before (vista?) W7 was they treated the filename AND extension as one field unless hidden.
People would rename and blow away the extension (which is how Windows determines what Application to use)

Shot wouldn't hurt enough. I would begin the treatment with an enema based on some liquids which strength is reported in scoville. Just think how often you had to help out unexperienced users who clicked on some "lookharmless.pdf.exe"
