I think you are right here, and it is like DVD vs the HD-DVD/Blu-ray fiasco.

With DVD, you have one file format that everyone competes equally on as a movie publisher. Anyone paying license fees can make a device as well. The customer has things 'just work', despite the presence of DRM because everything uses the one standard.

With HD-DVD and Blu-ray, you had competing formats, studios didn't really know which to pick, and the consumer was either split or simply waited until the fervor died down and one format won. That is if you were even interested in high-resolution movies in the first place.

eBooks are currently facing the second situation. Until one format wins, eBook adoption will be limited by the fractured market.

ePub is the new standard and Amazon is missing the boat.

For example, I copy a DRM PDF which opens fine on ADE on Windows over to "my documents" on the nook, but when I try to "read" it on the nook, I get the nook message "Sorry, unable to open this book"

Any ideas what else I can try?
Does anyone have any idea about why one would get a "Sorry, unable to open this book" message when the same book opens fine under ADE and I've already authorized my nook successfully?

Did you copy using ADE or just drag and drop it to your device?

I found with my EZ-Reader you had to use the Adobe Program to make the transfer. Once that was done, you could then copy that book elsewhere if you wanted.

But Amazon "just works", and if you look around a little, you will see that's not happening here.

In all fairness, I just want to see all of the ereaders thrive, warts and all, and I don't care who makes them. I just don't like people in the ereader community that try to put down others because they aren't like them. This fractured attitude will not help us in the upcoming battles with the book publishers!

I just dragged and dropped it to my device. But I just went into ADE and found no way to copy using ADE. Does anyone have any idea how to do that through ADE?
