        Anybody know how to do this in  MAC OS El Capitan V 10.11?

          I tried the update today. I downloaded a book from the library's overdrive site.  I opened it on Adobe Digital Editions.  I then copied it from the My Digital Editions folder to the My Files folder on the nook. I then tried to open it on the nook and it said it was already returned.  Let me know if there is any extra information you need.  I noticed that I can now see some folders I didn't see before on the nook including a .adobe-digital-editions folder.  Do I need to remove this folder? I believe I saw remarks about this on other nooks.

            I removed the xml file in the .adobe-digital-editions folder on the nook and then re-added my adobe registration and then I was able to open the same book it previously said was returned.  Wahoo!

             

            Hopefully the nook software folks can include this procedure in the official update.  I will now try this on my second nook glow light.

              The second test was also a success. I removed the same activation.xml file on my second nook and again readded my adobe id.  I then tried a different book from the library under a different library account.  I downloaded the epub file and opened it in adobe digital editions and then copied it over from the My Digital Editions folder to the My Files folder on the nook and I was able to open it.  It looks like if the Nook software folks add in a step to fix the broken activation.xml file this fix should work well.  Also, I saved a copy of the one of the broken versions of the file.  Nook folks, let me know via private message if you want this file for your debugging.  Thanks for the Beta Update!  I work in software that runs on embedded devices and I know how hard it is to get an update out for thousands of devices especially at this time of year.  It is a shame overdrive and adobe made this format change without working with B&N, especially at this time of year.  Folks should be more angry at the Overdrive and Adobe folks as it seems to me they made a change and didn't test it on all the devices that use their format.

                With so many threads being displayed during this forum discussion, I'm not sure what "this" myergin is referring to when asking "Anybody know how to do this in MAC OS El Capitan V 10.11?" but I am using a Mac with the same OS version.  If the "this" refers to "transferring an ebook once it has been downloaded from one's library", it should be noted that to transfer downloaded books from a Mac to a Nook, one must download and use the Android File Transfer application noted in this helpful hotlink:

                    I finally got it to work on my MacBook Pro. First I made sure I had Android

                    transfer installed. Then I downloaded a book to ADE from our public library

                    in Overdrive. I plugged NGP into a USB port. I right clicked on the book

                    cover in ADE and told it to show up in "Finder." Once it showed up in

                    Finder I pulled it over to "My Files" in the nook window. Not as intuitive

                    as it was. But it worked seamlessly even though it now is a PIA.

                      Alex how do you find the serial number on the NOOK GlowLight Plus? I can't find it anywhere and I really want to participate in the beta.

                        You have to have either VERY good eyes, or a magnifying glass.  It's engraved on the very bottom of the rear of the GLP...and it's VERY tiny!

                          Thanks, I found it and requested the beta test.

                            I'd suggest first trying to download another library epub book, any book will do. Then try the same procedure, e.g. right click on the book in ADE and click on view in Explorer. Then drag and drop the book file to the My folders file under Nook.  It's possible that drag and drop will work better than copy and paste. If that fails, I would try deleting the file you mentioned and restarting ADE.  If that fails and you are using ADE 4, you can try uninstalling it and installing ADE 3.0. You should be able to find 3.0 with a Google search. I have found that Nooks are somewhat incompatible with 4.  I am using 3.0 with the NGP and the new beta update. It's working so far. Good luck.

                             

                            BTW, I'm convinced that B & N's failure permit the NGPs to be recognized and direct loaded within ADE is a root cause of the problems we have been experiencing.

                              Ischutz, how did you get the beta update? I want to read epubs, Alex won't reply to me.

                                Can you send me the instructions that Alex sent you, lschutz? That way I won't have to keep waiting for him

                                  I'd be happy to, but he didn't send me any instructions, except how to participate in the beta update test.  If you want instructions on transferring library ebooks, the best I could find was from Overdrive at https://help.overdrive.com/customer/en/portal/articles/1481071-how-to-transfer-ebooks-to-an-ereader-using-adobe-digital-editions?b_id=15211

                                  You can transfer downloaded eBooks to a supported eReader (like a NOOK or Kobo) using Adobe Digital Editions (ADE). No...
