MUST select the Adobe EPUB format
when checking out.
Check out an EPUB title. When prompted to Save or Open the file (with Adobe Digital Editions),
choose Open and the software will take over and authorize it before opening.
To transfer the book to your device, plug the Nook into your PC or laptop using the packaged

authorization. If the program does not recognize your device, unplug your device, close
the program, open the program again and plug in your device.
Your Nook will appear under Devices. Click the small gear icon to bring up a menu. Click
Authorize Device.
In the popup menu, verify that the Adobe ID is yours. Click Authorize. Your Nook is now
authorized to read EPUB files from Overdrive!
Right click the title you want to put on your Nook. Select Copy to Computer/Device and find
your device (it may be listed as “nook” or “Nook”). Wait a moment for the file to copy. When
done, disconnect your device.
From the Nook itself, go to your Library and your transferred books will be waiting to be read.
Adding MP3 audiobooks from Overdrive to the Nook
Note: Audiobooks cannot be played on the Nook Glowlight and Simple Touch

player. Note: You must have OverDrive Media Console installed on your computer, which can
be downloaded for free from
After downloading the audiobook from Overdrive, double click the file. If the Overdrive Media
Console has been installed, it will take over and guide you through the process.
In order to transfer the audio book to your Nook, you will first need to download at least one part
of the book. Overdrive will, by default, select all parts of the book for you. You can track the
progress of your download by looking at the bottom of the Overdrive Media Console window.
Once the download has been completed, connect your Nook to the computer. Click the
TRANSFER button on the upper section of the Overdrive program window (it is found next to
the PLAY button). Overdrive will automatically detect your device, so all you have to do is hit the
"Next" button until OverDrive initiates the transfer.
Once the transfer is complete, disconnect your Nook from the computer.
