Hey everyone..

Been really silent lately due to I am so enjoying my nook....

But I have come across a tiny issue that I am hoping for you help with.

I downloaded/bought some Epub books from Sony Store.. now I know that my nook should read them, but I am getting this message that I can't read it.

Does anyone have any reasons why I can't read these books on my NOOK seeming as they are EPUB files???

If you buy books like the ones from the Sony store you mention, they always come with digital rights management (DRM), as far as I know. From what I've read and experienced, Calibre will not convert DRM ebooks. I think you should just copy the downloaded epub files from your PC to your Nook, using Windows Explorer.
