Help With Adobe Ereader. It won't recognize my Nook HD

I had a Nook Simple Touch and upgraded to a Nook HD. I wanted to transfer books I had on my Adobe Digital Ereader onto my new nook but the ereader won't recognize it. I've found steps on the internet that tell you too delete the adobe digital editions folder on your nook drive and then restarting the adobe ereader and your nook but it doesn't work. I've done it countless times. I even deregistered my nook simple touch and uninstalled adobe ereader several times and deleted my adobe ereader digital folder to see if that helped and nothing. Does anyone know how to get it to work?


Thank you.

The HD devices dont get authorized by ADE the same way as the older nook devices (NC/NT/NST.)


On the HD, go to Settings, then Account Settings, then AdobeDigital Editions. Enter your id and password for ADE in there.  Attach your HD to your computer. Copy your other books over to your HD.

Is it supposed to show up on the ADE like before or do you just copy the books into the ADE folder on the nook because I entered my email info under the settings and it is still not showing up.

Ok, try it again. On your HD, go to settings, then Account Settings, then Adobe DigitalEditions. Enter your ADE email address and password. You need to have your wifi on when you do this for it to get authorized. I think you can have 6 devices authorized to ADE account at any one time. You need toget this part working.

If the books you want to sideload are books you have purchased (not library books), just copy the epub files from your computer to your HD. While the computer and the HD are connected, go to the HD, look for a folder called MyFiles. Pop it open and you'll see some more options. Look for Books (might be called MyBooks.) Thats where you want to put your purchased epubs. MyFiles/Books

If they are library books, you do have to use ADE to transfer the file because you need to get the ascm file (temporary library token that will allow you to read the book) onto the HD. A simpler method would be to get the Overdrive app. You will need to authorize OD with your ADE id as well. The OD reader isnt as nice as the stock nook reader. But on the other hand, its less of a pita to get your library books up and running with it.

See if that works for you.
