    ADE 2.0: can no longer copy library books to Nook.

    adobehater2011

      I can no longer transfer library ebooks to my nook with ADE 2.0.  What is the fix for this?  From this site, it is clear that people have been complaining since September 2012.  Why is there no response from Adobe?  So many libraries and schools rely on this feature, it is irresponsible to have made this change, or to refuse to fix it.

          Unfortunately Adobe doesn't have any interest in proper support for Digital Editions (or if it does, it keeps it well hidden).

           

          Do you rely on ADE2.0, or can you just revert to ADE1.7.2?

          That is what I have done; in my case because of a bug with ADE2.0 relating to Sony PRS-350 and Overdrive use,

          but there are lots of other bugs in ADE2.0 as well; many of which can be fixed.by moving to 1.7.2.

           

          I realize this is slightly more difficult to explain to your customers as it doesn't come up automatically on the Adobe site,

          but probably much simpler than trying to work through the myriad problems with ADE2.0.

          The Adobe DRM ADEPT infrastructure should be designed for people not used to computers;

          but it is hostile to such people even when it works properly, and a complete menace when it doesn't.

          I really respect the librarians who have the task of helping these users.

           

          Version 1.7.2, it is a little difficult to find, available on Adobe site for Windows and for Mac.
