Okay I got this nook glowlight 3 for christmas. I downloaded overdrive on my computer to check out ebooks from the library. I downloaded Adobe digital editions 4.5. I got two books into Adobe digital editions, but could not get the books on my nook. So the nook support team said that my nook is not compatible with adobe digital editions 4.5 and I need the 3.0 version adobe digital editions. Now, I cant get the book from the overdrive to adobe digital editions 3.0. Nook support now says that I have to contact Adobe support because this is now a adobe problem, not a nook problem. Somebody please help me read books on my nook.
Up until I got a different newer glolight nook last week was able to use Adobe 4,57 to put library books on my nook. Plug nook into PC , open nook file, open first sub file, internal storage and nook shows up again, just copy and paste your ebooks into that file. It should be fine. My problem is I can't even get the adobe software to open. Have been trying everything I can think of.
Frankly I think Kindle and Adobe are in cahoots with each other and want to put Nook out of business. You notice their new software Libby can go from library to Kindle directly. It seems like rotten eggs to me.
Don't know if this will help you at all, but good luck
Nook Glowlight 3 - "This book has been returned" and "Error opening book. Loan token update failed."
I love my new Nook Glowlight 3. But last week I was unable to open ePUB books from the public library ("This book has been returned" error). Had sessions with Nook and Overdrive support. Did a factory reset of Nook, deregistered and reregistered ADE on my Mac (Sierra), upgraded ADE from 4.5.6 to 4.5.7, and tried to install ADE 3.0, to no avail. Along the way, the "returned" error turned into "Error opening book. Loan token update failed." Needless to say, many wasted hours.
The issue is resolved by switching from Adobe Digital Editions 4.5.7 to ADE 3.0, but 4.5.7 must be uninstalled in order to install 3.0. Here's how I resolved the issue. It looks like a lot (14 steps!) but actually only took five minutes.
Hope this is helpful. Happy reading!
For me, the simple answer is to use Calibre. The metadata directory can get confused (I have 450+ books) but if so, I just wipe the book, reinit it and download everything anew.
