Barnes and Noble ebooks on Kobo?

Hi all,

I'm asking this question for a friend. He owns a Kobo, and recently bought an ePub book from Barnes and Noble. He tried to transfer the ebook onto his Kobo using both Calibre and Adobe Digital Editions. Both ways gave him DRM error messages. Can you read B&N ebooks only on a Nook? Is it impossible to read these on a Kobo?

Thanks!

AFAIK, the Kobo only handles the regular ADE DRM. I haven't seen anywhere that it handles the B&N DRM....

Sorry about that...

It does work but you have to strip the DRM first. Do a google search (specifically for Barnes & Noble DRM); there are python scripts that will do this. (I bought several titles from Barnes & Noble because I couldn't get them elsewhere.)

Speaking of getting books for the Kobo; when is your book going to appear in the kobo book store?
