You can drag and drop or you can use your Kobo desktop software. Adobe digital editions for copy protected books. Or you can down load calibre from here

http://calibre-ebook.com/download

It will manage all ebooks and does a decent job. Oh

good luck

regards

Make sure that the books you purchased from Kobo that you want on your new device are in "I'm Reading". You can move them there by bookmarking them in the purchased section. I don't know what version of the desktop you are running, if the older one, you should be offered the new desktop when you choose something like "update your library". If not, you can download the new desktop from Kobo.

After that, it is just a matter of attaching your Kobo (I am assuming, if 12 months old it is Kobo 1) and choosing sync to get the purchased books onto the reader.

The Kobo 1 user guide can be accessed from the pick menu here: http://kobobooks.com/wifi_support . It has both the WiFi guides and the Kobo 1 guides.

With Desktop V2 at the top right there is a SYNC button. This will sync the Desktop with your account on Kobobooks.

When you connect your Kobo the third icon on the left hand side will turn white; 1st icon is your library; 2nd icon is the shopping cart; 3rd icon is the Kobo.

I think the problem is that the guide and instructions you had were for version 1 of Desktop; not the new V2.
