    Unable to transfer books to Nook

    p.oneill01@comcast.net

      My nook is activated and shows up but when I drag a book fr

      om ade to the nook I get a msg that says1 file unable to transfer and no permission to copy document here. I should tell you I did not activate ade or the nook until I had already transferred over 1700 books from a file to ade. Please don't tell me I have to start over. It took me about 10 hours to drag 1700 books one at a time to ade. Thank you for your help.

          The message you're getting relates ONLY to that particular book's digital

          rights.

           

          Publishers determine what you can do with an epublication.  They assign

          digital rights to each ebook, which relate to the transfer, copying and

          printing of a particular ebook.  When ADE is asked to do one of these

          things, it checks the digital rights and does it if possible, or tells you

          that it can't do it - via the 'no permission' messages.  You can check the

          digital rights for this ebook by displaying them from ADE's Library screen.

          Just rest your cursor on the ebook and a small arrow will appear.  Rest your

          cursor on that arrow and a drop-down menu will appear.  One of the choices

          is 'Item Info'.  Click on that line, and you'll see information about the

          ebook.  In the middle, you'll see the digital rights that the publisher has

          assigned.

           

          Don't contemplate trying to change the digital rights.  Publishers and

          resellers are able to do that, but you can't.  I'm not aware of any software

          that would circumvent these rights - the other software packages like ADE

          all have digital rights management built into them also.

           

          Hope this helps!

            It isn't transferring any books whether it says publisher unknown or whether the publisher is listed.

              I put the memory stick back in the computer and

              I was able to transfer books to the nook where the nook is listed on the bookshelf . When I click on the nook the books are listed. However, they aren't on the actual nook. Anybody know what's going on??

                Now you have me confused.  The nominal process is to use ADE to download

                ebooks to its library, then drag and drop them to the ereader.  I don't see

                how a memory stick fits into the process.  If you can see the Nook on the

                bookshelf in ADE, and can drag and drop the books to it, that's a good

                thing.  Then, when you finish that process, you will be closing ADE.  Let

                the Nook sit attached for a few moments and watch its screen.  It will be

                synchronising all of the new material and will tell you when it's done.

                THEN, eject the Nook or use the icon in the system tray at the bottom right

                hand side of your Windows XP screen to disconnect the Nook logically.  When

                that's done, you can disconnect the Nook, and check to see that the books

                are there.....  They should be.
