          Hi allee,

          Please refer the KB : http://www.kobobooks.com/ade

          Prepare to use NOOK Tablet with Adobe Digital Editions

          Follow these steps to get ready:

          1. On a desktop or laptop computer, use a web browser connected to the Internet and go toAdobe Digital Editions.
          2. Download the Adobe Digital Editions program.Make sure it’s the right version for your computer.
          3. Install the program on your desktop or laptop computer.
          4. Follow the instructions to authorize your computer.
          5. Turn on your NOOK Tablet.
          6. Plug in both ends of the USB cable that came with your NOOK Tablet.One end goes into the computer and the other end goes into the NOOK Tablet. Make sure to use the right USB cord.Adobe “recognizes” the tablet.

          Install book files using Adobe Digital Editions

          When you’ve put Adobe Digital Editions on your laptop or desktop computer, you can use it to buy or borrow books from stores or libraries that require it. Follow the store’s or library’s instructions to download files to your computer. Then do the following:

          1. Launch Adobe Digital Editions on your desktop or laptop computer.
          2. Turn on your NOOK Tablet.
          3. Plug in both ends of the USB cable that came with your NOOK Tablet.One end into the computer and the other into the NOOK Tablet. Make sure you don’t force things!
          4. Drag files you have downloaded from their location on your computer’s desktop or a folder onto the ADE library bookshelf.They will be available for reading on the computer, but your goal is to get them onto your NOOK Tablet.
          5. Follow the instructions to move those files to an authorized NOOK Tablet.

            If that doesn't work

             

            Adobe Digital Editions does not generally recognize tablets, only dedicated ereaders.

             

             

            For a tablet, install compatible Adobe DRM ereader app.  I suggest Bluefire; also consider Akdiko or Overdrive but some people have issues registering them. Some tablets come with such an app preinstalled.  Authorize the tablet from within the app to use your Adobe ID (details vary from app to app, usually somewhere within Settings)

             

             

            The tablet may well be able to download books without use of ADE at all.  If you do want to transfer books from ADE/computer, use a file manager (Windows Explorer, Mac Finder) to copy to the tablet as mounted drive, or use a utility such as Dropbox.
