ADE can 'import' ebooks that are on your computer.
First, find out where the library ebooks are located on your computer.
Then, open ADE. In the Library view pane, put your cursor on the small
arrow next to the word 'Library'. A drop-down menu will appear.
Pick the 'Add Item To Library' entry by clicking on it. ADE will open a
window that will let you browse to where the ebook is located.
Then, double-click on the ebook name, and ADE should add it to your
library. Once it's there, then you can transfer it to your Nook.
Please note that some ebooks cannot be transferred from your computer to
your Nook due to the way digital rights have been assigned by the publisher
or the library. If you find out you can't transfer the library ebook onto
your Nook, get in touch with the library and see if they can or will fix
Hope this helps!
Thank you for your help. i did what you said, but I'm stuck after the "add
item to Library". the window that lets me browse, isn't showing the word
"downloads" which is where the books are. Obviously, I'm not very astute
with computers! Anyway, I don't know how to get those books in a folder, if
in fact that would help me. Should I have my nook plugged into the computer
before(or should I say if) I get this accomplished?
I'll try to put into words the picture you're seeing. Hopefully, I'm at
least close. If this ain't workin' for you, maybe somebody else that you
know is a computer geek (in my case, it's the nine year old down the
street) can help you right at your computer.
The window I think you're seeing has several parts to it. The top contains
a box where the location that the window points to is located. There is a
'down arrow' on the right hand side of that box, and if you click on it,
you should see a list of locations on your computer. These will be the
disk drives and the files on those disk drives. when you see the list, you
can choose the location of your files - apparently the 'Download' file
folder on your hard drive. When you click on that entry, the middle of the
screen will change to show you all of the file folders in that location,
and you can put your mouse pointer on the one where your ebooks are located
and click on it. When you find them, you can double-click on the title.
It will appear in the box at the bottom of the window, and you can click on
OK. The computer will burp while it digests the ebook, and you will be
returned to the Library view of Digital Editions to do it again. The
second and successive times will be easier: your computer remembers where
you were last time, and all you should have to do is to double-click on the
ebook titles, then click on OK.
Hope this helps!
