Moving this discussion to the Adobe Digital Editions forum.
Welcome to the world of ebooks! I'm not sure, however, that your first
experiences within it are going to be great.
I say that because there are many, many devices out there that claim that
you can use to download and read ebooks. Not all of them, however, are
supported by Digital Editions (ADE). Check out the list by clicking HERE

ereader isn't on the list....
The general process that you follow is pretty simple, actually. To start,
you'd go to the Adobe website on your computer, register there to obtain an
Adobe ID and password, and then download ADE to your computer. It will
contain your Adobe ID and password, so that it can use this information
when you download ebooks. Close the process. Next, you'd attach your
ereader to your computer and link it to the ereader's home website. You'll
probably go through a registration process as well: use your Adobe ID and
password so that it will be written to your ereader. While you are there,
you should check for any software updates, and download/install them to
your ereader. Log off the site.
With your ereader now recognized by your computer, and loaded with your
Adobe ID, you can start ADE. It 'should' recognize the ereader and will
show it on the bookshelf panel (left hand side of the Library View). Then,
all you have to do is to drag and drop an ebook to it.
When you're done doing transfers, you can close ADE. Watch your ereader -
it will be finishing its updates and synching everything. When it's done,
detach it logically from your computer BEFORE you unplug it. In Windows,
you can find the drive letter using Windows Explorer and pick the Eject
function from the drop-down menu when you right click on the drive letter.
Or, you can go to the START bar's extreme right-hand side, and find the
icon that will allow you to stop the drive letter.
Hope this helps!
