    I have a number of books I bought BEFORE I bought my Nook stored on my laptop and desktop ... now that I like the portability of the Nook over that of my laptop, I want to transfer the books from my laptop/desktop but I can't figure out how ... Can someone help me here please? I do NOT want to have to purchase them again, because I shouldn't have to.

    thanks in advance

    Hi dog, congratulations on your new Nook and welcome to the forum. Glad you decided to join us here at Android Tablets.

    If you registered the Nook using the same B&N account you purchased the books under, the books should automatically be available to the Nook as well. I have a desktop and two Nook tablets all sharing the same books.

    These are books I bought in .pdf format and .epub, but not from Barnes and Nobles and I have had them for a number of years. Some are books I've found free at Gutenberg.org (not sure if that's right) and other places. Nothing I've done has allowed me to put these books on my NookHD ... sorry I should have posted that correct in the first place.

    I managed to get some books from Gutenberg.org onto my Nook by converting them using Calibre on my PC. calibre - E-book management Unfortunately, you'll have to experiment with it to see what conversion works for your HD.

    I'll give that a try I guess ... if that doesn't work or someone doesn't come up with something easier, I'll just sell my nook and get another Kindle ... (one is already being used by the wife)

    It just seems the process would be just as easy as that for the Kindle ... unless this is how B&N intends to make their money :)

    That probably has a lot to do with it.:rolleyes: Rather than converting the books to fit the reader, another option would be to install a second reader for the books Nook can't/won't handle. I have the free Aldiko Book Reader installed on my Nexus and it appears to handle anything I throw at it. Worth a try? Amazon.com: Aldiko Book Reader: Appstore for Android

    At least you have 2 ways.
    1. Use ADE, once you connect nook to pc, the ade will detect the device, then you can transfer epub&pdf books from pc to nook via ADE.
    2. Use Calibre content server, this is what I would recommend. You can check this post: Transfer downloaded eBooks from Computer to Nook Tablet?
