    confused about opening books.

      i have a series i got from a friend, its the entire kay scarpetta series. i love it. i used to have a sony ereader and i still had the software on my pc, the series will open in epub format in that program, i downloaded the same files to my new nook tablet, they say there is an error and it cant open the file, i downloaded the nook app on my phone, did a drag and drop in the app of a book that was giving me the error and it opened just fine. why is it not opening the file on my nook?i even deleted it and re-downloaded it, and tried again with the same error popping up, its only doing this with this series...

          I bought a Nook Book from my Nook tablet last night.  Clicked on the book cover in "My Library" and got an error message that said that format was not supported by Nook.  (huh?  why sell it as a nook book then?).  Today, I downloaded the free Nook reading app for PCs on my computer.  Then I downloaded the book - it downloaded as an epub.  Opened up on my pc just fine.  At which point, I again clicked on the book cover icon in "My Library" on my Nook.  This time, the book opened just fine.  

           

          While happy that this is resolved, it strikes me as very odd.

              Oh, and the book only shows up in the "home page" ribbon on my nook.  It is not in the books section of my library.  It is under "My Stuff" the Everything Else shelf.  And going to it through that link, it will not open.  Just gets an error.   Very very odd.

                How did you download them to your Nook?  The few books I've bought from Sony I used ADE to transfer them to the Nook.
