I've successfully sideloaded PDF and MP3, and also gotten B&N books into my new Nook, but the epub I got from another site just won't go in. I put it into the digital editions folder and also the documents folder. Neither helps. When I pull up the book in Digital Editions, it loads, but won't show in the Nook folder. I tried to add it, but it doesn't see the file at all then.

Do you have Adobe Digital Edition loaded to your computer? If not download the software here: http://www.adobe.com/products/digitaleditions/#dow

victory1, you are correct. When I first received my nook I purchased a book at another site (it was in epub format) when I sideloaded and dropped it into the"My Documents" folder, I could see the title of the book (on the nook), but it wouldn't open. I put the book into Adobe Digital Editions, attached the nook to my PC and then dragged and dropped the title to the nook icon. I opened the book and I am able to read it. It seems, from my experience, that the nook doesn't like you to drop some files directly into the folders, but when I did it as described above, it knew where to put the file automatically.

Actually it is a question of what type of ebook you are trying to load on the nook.
If it is a normal epub and not secured, nook can see it just fine if you move it into the my documents folder.
The problem is the secured epubs from sites like www.fictionwise.com
If the format is "secure ereader" you will have to use adobe digital editions in order to register your nook.
It looks like you may only have to load one secure book and register the nook like this once. I have been able to directly load secure epubs to the nook now that my nook is registered with the adobe digital editions.
I hope this information helped.

I could use some assistance with this. I run on a Mac. I have Adobe Digital Edition installed. When I download from Kobo, I get a file that I save to my computer called URLLINK.acsm. I open it using DE. All I get is this blank window that is black and I see nothing. When I hook up my nook to my computer, I do not get some indication that I need to activate my nook with DE.
Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong or what steps I need to follow to get this to work so I can get my new book I purchased from Kobo onto my nook?
Thanks in advance!
