Purchased an enhanced nookbook Harry, A History, yesterday and can not read the book on the Nook for Ipad app. Before I bought it, when I clicked the buy now it said it can be read on Nook Color and in the Nook For Ipad app, so I went through with it. It's paid for (with a gift card) and in my library and "shipped" in my order history. I saw in another help thread that said to access nook library from the Safari app and try to download it from there, received a "can't be downloaded from your browser". I also tried firefox, chrome and safari on my computer with the same error. I can see it in Nook for PC, current version 188.8.131.5263, all I can do from that is move it to and from the archive. Clicking to download or read, I get an an error says "title not available for this application (download 2138)". I know it isn't for the Nook PC app, I'm just listing what I tried. The book is not in the Nook Ipad app, not as a download, not in the archives, not when I refresh, not when I "deregister" by logging out. If I can't read the book, I want a refund, it's really that simple.
edited to add what I see when I try to purchase any enhanced books:
I also downloaded a free sample of Philosophy of David Lynch which put a .pdb file on my computer that I can't open and in Nook PC, I get a "technical difficulties error download: 2154" when I tried to download it and in the nook ipad app it says "title can not be viewed on this device.
Solved! Go to Solution.

You only get PDB format on a Mac when downloading from the B&N website.
Use Nook for Mac (or is case of problems Nook Study) to download the books in ePub.

Try the Nook for Kids app on the iPad. That one reads enhanced books (as well as the normal ones). I had the same issue with "Goodnight iPad" and its very annoying as I had to add all of my books to the "kids" app just so I could get them all in one place.

Thanks for this post! I was having trouble figuring this out, and was able to download the "nook for kids" app on the ipad and it worked like a charm!!
