        I've read through nine pages and can't find a problem like mine.

        I've used ADE fine for the past four months or so, then two weeks ago, like usual I downloaded three books from my library, I put them on my nook and read them. When I went to return them, my ADE library was empty, so I re-opened them to return them early and checked out two new books. I put them on my nook and then decided to get another book...and the two books that I had just checked out were no longer in my ADE library.
        I wasn't ready to return them but was still kinda irritated. Now, when I dl'd my third book I saw it in ADE and then accidentally closed ADE, when I opened it it was gone.

         

        I know that all I have to do is go re-open it and it will show back up and I can load it on my nook
        but WTF? Why are my books just disappearing?

        It's really, really annoying. 


        The books are saved in the My Digital Editions Folder on your computer. Have you checked to make sure your hard drive isn't damaged? Make sure that the books are being saved into this folder or ADE will not see them.

          I have been getting library books on my nook since I got my nook in December 2009, and I get that the message about "the document is licensed for a different user" is about ADE attempting to open the books on my nook- but I am finding that it now takes longer and longer for ADE to cycle through this process as I get more and more books on my nook- Does anyone know if there is a fix on the ADE side to "don't ask me about this again" type of thing?  I don't have to click OK every time, but I get so many pop ups!!

           

          Just venting and wondering if anyone else knows the answer to this...

            You are correct, the more books you have on the Nook, and especially the more B&N books you have, the longer it takes ADE to cycle through all of them . There's currently no fix for it, since ADE doesn't know if it's a BN epub or an ePub that needs ADE.  If Adobe ever updates ADE for B&N social DRM, this problem "should" go away to some extent, but, it's still going to take awhile to read all the books on the device.

             

            My solution, connect my Nook and then go away and do something else for a while.  When I get back, ADE is ready. 

            • 93. Re: Using Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) - Library Books and Vendors other than B&N.

              @FrogAlum.  Thanks for the ADE instructions.  All went well until I tried to download a book to the NC from ADE.  At first I thought that ADE was not seeing the NC. So I went through all of the various deleting adobe digital editions file and so on.  I even uninstalled and reinstralled and reinitialized ADE and my NC and restarted my pc. 

               

              Well I don't know if anyone else has done this or not, but I realized I was on the wrong view on ADE, i.e. I was in reading view so when I scrolled down on the left I couldn't see the NC.  Well I just noticed at the top of ADE on the far left, little icons, one looks like a stack of books (Library View) and the other looks like an open book (Reading View).  I clicked on Library View and voila', at the bottom left was Media (my NC).  Drag and drop and all is good.  Book opened up with no problem.  Hope this helps someone.

              • 94. Re: Using Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) - Library Books and Vendors other than B&N.

                ADE has just been updated to 1.8 and it supposedly supports B&N's social DRM.

                 

                Forgot to mention that it's only a "preview" and not a full replacement for 1.7 so it doesn't have many features yet. One is no USB export.

                • 95. Re: Using Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) - Library Books and Vendors other than B&N.

                  I'm having difficulty getting ADE to see the book from my library.  I followed the library directions, which said to click here, download to PC, etc.  I thought I was downloading a .pdf or zip or something, but it's the acsm file.  Too bad I hadn't read all this BEFORE I downloaded my book.

                   

                  At any rate, if I try and open it with ADE I get a server error:  "Error getting license
                  Server communication problem: E_ADEPT_REQUEST_EXPIRED"

                   

                  If I try multiple times, I get a download in progress message.  Nothing ever downloads or shows up in ADE. 

                   

                  I authorized my computer, but I didn't link it to the same email as my B&N account (too many emails, I was confused). 

                   

                  Help!  Thanks!!

                    This should get you up and running.  BTW.  You don't have to use the same email as your B&N, but you can if you choose.

                      Thank you so much, FrogAlum! I got my nook classic in December 2009 and nook color earlier this year believing that the borrowing from libraries is a primo feature of nook. It seemed so complicated to me and my local library wasn't offering ebooks. I know I could have worked around that but it was the perfect excuse to avoid the complicated process of downloading/authorizing/sideloading etc. I recently discovered from my BN nook expert that our local library joined Overdrive so I no longer had my scaredy cat excuse! Oh my! What was I to do? I decided to give it a go and see what happened.

                       

                      So fabulously easy! What a pleasant surprise. I'm so pleased to now be able to add the library's selections to all the freebies BN offers.

                       

                      Thanks again, Froggie - great step by step instructions.

                        I did what you said and now the nook icon has disappeared from ADE and I can't get it back! I dragged and dropped my book files into the nook slot before it disappeared and then tried to see them on my nook. They weren't there so I tried it again and ADE told me that they were there... what do I do now??

                        Please help!

                          Who are you referring to when you say "I did what you said".  Until we know what you did, it will be hard to offer any suggestions.

                            I'd bet money that "E_ADEPT_REQUEST_EXPIRED" tells you what you need to know.


                            Those links are keys to unlock and receive a file.  They only last for a short time (I thought I read somewhere that it's as little as 30 minutes).   You keep trying to use a key that you saved ages ago.  It's dead now.  Just like if you reserved a physical book and waited two weeks to come and pick it up; they figured you weren't showing up and put it back on the shelf.

                             

                            I would suggest you go back to the library site and attempt to check out ANY OTHER book that's available.  Check that out and see if you can get the epub.  That will prove if you have ADE setup correclty.  Stop trying to make a dead-key work.

                              Do these directions also apply to the 2nd generation Nook? The ADE shows up on my Nook but when I click on the book to read it it says that the Nook does not allow the format. I have done everything in your directions multiple times to no prevail. I am very frustrated please help!!  :smileywink:

                              Thanks, Mindy

                                  You have done all of what several times and what problem are you experiencing.  We need much more detailed information to provide any type of suggestions, including what exactly is or isn't happening, which Nook are you using, what type of computer and operating systems.  If you get an error message, the exact error message.  Things like that.

                                    Hello!

                                     

                                    So, I'm having a problem similar to everyone else's but nothing that I've tried to do seems to work.

                                     

                                    I'm trying to read library books on my nook using ADE, and though both my nook and my computer are authorized to ADE, when I try to read the books on my nook, I'm getting the "Use not Activated" message.

                                     

                                    What should I do?

                                     

                                    Thanks so much for any and all help!

                                     

                                    ps -- Sorry if this is a question that's already been asked, I've been searching the thread for ages and haven't found an answer. So thanks again!
