Question Sony Reader Library epub books to Nook?

I saw a good book on the 'Free' thread from Sony that I wanted so I installed the PC Reader Library software for Sony onto my PC, downloaded the epub book, and it's now sitting within the Reader Library (Sony) and I can read it on my PC.


My newbie question is now how do I get that free Sony epub book from my PC to my Nook? Does the Sony Reader Library PC software know I have a Nook to connect or does it only use Sony ereaders?

You need to install Adobe Digital Editions. Then connect your NOOK and it should recognize it and prompt you to authorize it with your Adobe ID. You can then import that other book into the Digital Editions library and drag it to the NOOK icon, or you can move the book to the Digital Editions folder on the device.

Have you tried using Calibre? It's great for importing, reading and converting ebook files.

Did you try to connect the Nook to see if the Sony software will recognize it as a device?

If it does not then use either Adobe Digital Editions or Calibre.

Thank you so much pretty lady!

The Sony Reader Library software didn't see the Nook for me, but the Adobe Digital Editions did. I then dragged the book over to my Nook.
