First, your post isn't clear as to whether you're having problems with ADE
on your computer, activating the Nook in ADE or downloading from your
computer to the Nook. I got the part about the library, but that brings up
another question: is your computer registered with Adobe? I would guess so
because you were using a SONY ereader before.
Next, if everything is working properly between your computer and your Nook,
you can still have problems with the library interface to ADE on your
computer. They can be authentication problems, software version
compatibility problems or plain software interoperability problems. Nothing
in this environment is trouble-free - yet.
You haven't said it, but I 'assume' you have registered your Nook with its
parent ebook store, and that the Nook is also authorized to ADE on your
computer. Given that, then it's possible your problems relate to the way
your computer registration is linked to the libraries you're working with.
Overdrive is supposed to be fussy in how it interrelates to ADE and the
registration with the library has to be an exact match for Overdrive to work
properly. That may - or may not - be your problem. You and Overdrive need
to make sure that the user ID's and passwords match, along with the time,
time zone and dates.
I don't know anything about 'Nassau Digital Doorway', so I can't help you
there, except to say that it probably has the same general approach: user ID
and password, time, time zone and date matching.
If you 'think' you've downloaded some ebooks but can't find them, they may
be there, but not visible in ADE's library because you 'Open'ed them instead
of 'Save'd them during the download process. You can get them into the
library by using ADE as follows:
Go to ADE's Library view. Click on the drop-down box arrow next to the word
'Library' in the status area. Then, choose 'Add Item To Library', and ADE
will open a screen that allows you to find the ebook by name. When ADE opens
this dialogue, it's looking in the Digital Editions folder, where most
programs transfer ebooks by default. You choose the ebook to add by
highlighting the name, then pressing OK. ADE will register the ebook in its
That's a lot to digest. But I hope it helps!
Thanks for the reply - the issue is that I can't seem to download library books - I called Overdrive and they went thru my entire computer they say something is blocking the site from downloading I was thinking of re-registering with another email account (aol) which I still have on my computer - I have books on the ADE that I purchased or are public domain but I still can't download library books which is the main problem I am having - I have called Overdrive and they are supposed to get back to me - any ideas you can give me would be helpful thanks
Fixed the problem just created another account thanks for your input
