Moving this discussion to the Adobe Digital Editions forum.
It's kind of the other way.
Once you've registered with Adobe and then installed ADE on your computer,
it's ready to go.
When you get an ereader, then you have to go to their website and register
it with them. That process puts a small ID file on the ereader, which ADE
will use. It makes it much easier if you use your Adobe ID when you
register the ereader.
ADE will recognize ereaders 'automagically' - you don't need to do anything
to ADE to tell it you have an ereader. Just plug the ereader into your
computer and make sure your computer finds it and shows it - usually as an
external hard drive. Then, start ADE. Your ereader should show up on the
bookshelf, which is the left hand panel of the Library view screen. You
then can transfer ebooks to it by dragging the title and dropping it onto
Things to look for: make sure your ereader is supported by ADE. Kindles
are not, along with a bunch of 'generic' ereaders, Android tablets, phones
and Apple products. THIS
take you to the list of supported devices. Also, when you go to disconnect
your ereader, use your computer's routines for 'ejecting' the ereader, such
as Windows 'Safely Remove Hardware' icon on the START bar. Then, don't
pull the plug until your ereader says it's finished updating its content.
Hope this helps!
Where on Adobe.com do I register my eReader? I have 2 Barnes & Nobel eReaders; one is the original Nook and the other is Color Nook. Both are in the list of ADE supported devices.
You register your ereaders with B&N, not on Adobe.com. When they are
registered, B&N will write a small ID file to them, and this file is read
Both of my e-Readers were registered with B&N.com in 2010. Somehow, ADE doesn't recognize my Color Nook (purchased and registed after the original Nook).
