Hi there. Has anyone used the Overdrive app on the HD+ successfully? I can activate with my adobe digital editions ID, log into my library, and download the book onto the bookshelf perfectly fine. The problem arises when opening the book. It just sits there at "Loading..." indefinitely.
I also noticed where you can add an Adobe ID in the settings. What exactly is that for? Perhaps there the Overdrive app issues I've had are related in some way.
I also observed that the Nook HD+ is not recognized in the Adobe Digital Editions software on my computer.
I assume all of these things will work out over time but I'm mostly curious if there are others who have noticed the same things so I can take comfort knowing I'm not the only one.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Are you trying to open the book from your bookshelf or from withing the Overdrive app? You have to open them from the app.

Same here. I have the Overdrive app on my rooted Nook Tablet and it works great. I was so happy to see the app on the B&N store so I downloaded it to my new NT HD+. I have activated my Adobe Reader Digital Editions access, opened the app, and added my library. Of course, I couldn't find any available titles I actually wanted to read so I downloaded one of the more interesting Always Free epubs. When I went to open it, it just sat there, "Loading" for so long I gave up. You are not alone. I'm sure they'll sort it out. Hopefully soon.

I have had my Nook HD+ since last Friday and have yet to get the OverDrive app to work. Unfortunately, I can't even sideload the old way using Adobe Digital Editions. This post was in teh New Solutions Thread, but I don't think it has been solved yet.
Has anyone gotten this to work?

Everyone just needs to just either contact overdrive to find out what is taking so long for the next app update or wait it out to see if BN does another update themselves to get it working. Usually if it does not work its the developer that needs to fix something in the app.

I've gotten two seemingly opposing replies from the makers of Overdrive. Here they are in the order that I recieved them:
Reply 1: An app update, OMC v2.6.2, will fix this problem and was submitted to B&N. It passed testing but I do not know exactly when it will be published on the Nook App Store. It might not show up until 11/16.
We're sorry for any trouble you're having. We are aware of the issue you mentioned and are working to correct it as soon as possible. Unfortunately, we do not yet have an estimated time of completion. We appreciate your patience.
The red emphasis is in the original and has not been added by me. So, I'm unsure which to believe. I'm going to go with reply 2 since it's the most recent once.

My Nook HD+ isn't telling me there is an update for OMC. I am still on Version 2.6.1. I tried uninstalling and searching the app store, but the only version out there is 2.6.1. How did you find the new update?

How did you find/get the update? My HD+ hasn't "announced" it. I'm unfamiliar with Android, and I had minimal apps on my NC. Is there something in particular I should do? Thanks in advance!

Go to the "Apps" section of the device and click on the button in the bottom left corner that looks like a bunch of lines. Then click "Check for Updates".
