I have been plagued with the same problems as many others, and any fixes only last a while.  But the other day I happened to re-start my Kobo-Glo, and saw a reference to Overdrive, the security system that my local library uses.  I found (for the first time) that the complete borrowing process could be perfomed on the Kobo over wifi, so no ADE is required.  I have no idea how long this capability has been there, but I for one won't be using ADE ever again if I can help it!

 

I hope this helps someone - and if you all knew already, why did no-one tell me?  Martin the slow.

oops! Sorry for getting your hopes up - I used to have a Glo, it was lost and my daughter bought me what I thought was another - but its an Aura, and AIUI, Overdrive has been available on that since the get-go.  So I'm even slower than I thought!
