Very disappointing, but unfortunately not surprising. I do hope it is just a temporary glitch. Whatever the reason, I highly recommend Calibre to keep your own copy of everything you purchase.

I sent you guys PM's with the code copied into a code box. You can look it over and decide if you feel it's safe enough to install. It's copied from a file named 152985.user.js. It was in my Firefox Profile folder under "Gm_scripts\BN-Dload". You can find where the Firefox Profile folder on your computer is by typing "about:support" in the address bar of Firefox.

I suspect the script has to be actively installed somehow, rather than just copied to the folder....Greasemonkey's Wiki offers instructions at http://wiki.greasespot.net/Greasemon...alling_Scripts.

It's 3:30 AM where I am and I have GOT to head to bed....have to be at work by 10 tomorrow. I hope you can get it to work. I went ahead and downloaded the last of the books I hadn't yet, just in case the buttons disappear forever, and they figure out a way to block this script

I usually do. And I downloaded everything except a few 'sample' files and one or two that never did really download even from the site so I have some new backups that I can convert (for use on my Kindle).

Excellent. The so-called "cloud" services are very convenient but this sort of thing is the downside.

I usually get my epub books over at Kobo though if I can't find what I'm looking for there I do go to B&N. As long as I can download a book via the Nook for PC app and convert it I'll still buy from B&N if they have what I want. If/when they take even that away from me it will be time to part company though.

Userscripts moved to http://userscripts-mirror.org/ because of a lot of malicious scripts being uploaded. Not sure this site will fare much better, but it could take awhile to reach the point where userscripts.org gave up. A lot of the older scripts were moved over to the new site as well.

I checked B&N and there's a few comic books that still have a download link, but it seems all ebooks purchased can only be read instantly. I have the original Greasemonkey script that I installed about 1.5+ years ago, and the code is below if you just want to create your own file. The script itself is named 152985.user.js and located in BN-Dload directory. I noticed there's a few books it doesn't work on though*, but the majority of my books can still be downloaded via the Alternative Download link that the script gives you for each book.

I'm glad the first thing I do when I purchase books from anywhere is to removed DRM for when stores do things like this or go the way of the Dodo bird.

*Edit: Actually I logged back in and reloaded the page with my library and all books can now be downloaded again using the script. Maybe my session timed out when I first tried.

And oops, I missed that FizzyWater basically had the same info, but here's the script without dealing with PMs (unless this violates a forum rule, and I'm sure I'll find out soon ).

}
});

}

setTimeout (function() {
doIt();
}, 3000 );
}

doIt();

1- I was able to download my (Fictionwise) titles via the Nook for Android App on my Fire HD tablet. (Very fast--I may have been the only person downloading at the time. ) They imported fine into Aldiko. (Plus, I have disinfected backups.) I need not deal with B&N ever again. Not that I ever dealt much with them anyway.

2- I can't get into the US nook ebook site at all on my tablet. I can get fine into the UK site. I have no books there, of course. I'm not in the mood to go fire up the PC.

3- It is probably another glitch, the likes of which they are having too many for my taste.

Edit: tried again and was able to force it to give me the Nook site instead of redirecting it to B&N.com.

Thanks. I responded to your PM but you should also get public recognition. Installed the script, restarted Firefox, and it works fine. Now I'll see if I can it working under Chrome on my Linux box (currently using my wife's Windows' machine).

Update: Can't find a Greasemonkey add-on for Chrome, so just used Firefox on Linux and everything works fine. Actually, as slow as Chrome is getting lately, I might just go back to Firefox. Thanks for giving me back features (and a bit more) that B&N should not have taken away.

I've had the download button disappear for individual books (or not be available for many, many hours after purchasing) quite a few times over the last couple of years. Often enough to make me a bit leery, and make B&N my last choice for buying epubs. I'm pretty-much Kobo or Google Books these days. And if Kobo gets much worse with tricking me into buying their kepub-only monstrosities, they'll go by the wayside too.

The Greasemonkey script works in Firefox. (Actually, as was mentioned, it works better than original, because you also get download links for Archived items.) But we shouldn't have to come up with a workaround. I guess Barnes & Noble is serious about dumping their ebook market. At least that seems to be their plan.

You can also download through the nook Study program.
It's clunkier than the original nook for PC, but it does work. (nook for PC stopped working for me a while ago and I had to switch.)

They aren't giving out good vibes, going into the crucial holiday shopping season...
Their fate (and Nook Media sale price) hinges on having a good holiday season.

I went to install Nook Study as a workaround, but it seems to have been replaced by something called Yuzu.

Just tweeted my annoyance to @NOOK_Care, and this is their reply:

"The ability to sideload NOOK purchased content has been discontinued. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause."

So I guess the ability to download to your computer is gone for good.
