Library books to CM on Nookcolor

Hi all--

I'm new at ereaders, so I'd appreciate any help. I have a Nookcolor that I rooted and installed Cyanogenmod 7 on. I don't have a SD card in the unit.

Basically, I'm trying to download a book from my library (which uses the Overdrive system) and read it on my Nook. The book is labeled as an Adobe PDF ebook, and the file format that downloads is acsm. I'm able to open it in Adobe Digital Editions without any issues. To make Nook appear in ADE, I have to unmount the Nook's internal storage and then turn on USB storage. That seems to work fine, and I'm able to transfer it over from ADE. The file (in PDF format) ends up in \emmc\Digital Editions on the Nook.

From this point, I'm stumped. I can't open the pdf file in Adobe Reader, and trying to open it in Aldiko gives a SD card error. iReader can't seem to open the file either.

I'd appreciate any guidance on how I can start reading!

Thanks.

Copy the .acsm to the nook color and I think import the .acsm into aldiko and it will download the book onto the nc via wifi

No luck-- Aldiko is giving me a SD card error (Please make sure your SD card is present and that your device is not in USB storage mode) whenever I open any file.

Edit-- Just borrowed the SD card from my phone, and now it's working properly. So moral of the story is that Aldiko requires a SD card to work properly.

You'll find that a lot of Android apps do.

If your NC is an internal root....sd card should be left in.

well at least you got it. An SD card is relatively cheap nowadays
