The original question was:
"How do I get the library books from ADE to my Kobo when there is no Kobo
icon on the ADE screen?"
Jeff Wright suggested that you make sure your particular KOBO model is
supported by ADE. That's fine, and you should do that.
However, your comment about an icon on the ADE screen assumes that there
should be an icon. That's not true.
What you would see if you hooked up all the gear in the proper sequence is
a word on the bookshelf side of the Library display. That's the left hand
side of the screen, about midway down. All you might see is the word
I mentioned the proper sequence. That's very important, and from your
comment assuming that you'd see an icon, I have to question whether you
have followed the sequence. Just to make sure, let me outline the sequence
The first step is to check to see that the KOBO ereader model you have is
on the list of supported devices. The next step is to register it with
KOBO if you haven't done so. That process will ask you for an ID and
password, and it makes things so much simpler if you use your Adobe ID and
password. At the end of that process, watch the screen on the KOBO and
make sure it tells you that it's done with its processing. Pull the plug
on the KOBO and turn it off.
Now for the ADE part. Turn on the KOBO, then, plug in the KOBO to your
computer's USB port. Both the computer and the ereader should tell you
that they're connected. Now, open ADE. If all is well, it should show the
KOBO ereader on the bookshelf in Library view, as above. The KOBO also
ought to tell you it's waiting for you to do something - I don't have one,
so I can't say what is on its screen at this point.
Transferring ebooks from ADE to the KOBO (your original question) takes
place by dragging and dropping them from the library side of ADE onto the
KOBO on the bookshelf.
When you're done with the transfers, close ADE. Watch the KOBO to see when
it's finished processing new content. When it is, then disconnect it
logically from your computer (in Windows, you can eject it using Windows
Explorere, or use the 'Safely Remove Hardware' icon in the right hand side
of the system tray). Once this is done, the KOBO should display the ebooks
you've transferred on its screen.
Hope this helps!
