Whenever you are downloading an EPUB book always be sure to select "Open" and not "Save" when the box to download the file appears. If you have already selected Save, then simply return to your OverDrive page, select My Account, select My Bookshelf, and redownload the item selecting "Open".

  1. I do not get the choice of either 'Save' or 'Open' - only 'Save'. So now I have a book on my bookshelf that I dragged to my Nook, but cannot read.

  2. Eureka! I am using Windows 8 - don't know if that matters, but when I download something, it shows up at the bottom of the screen in a download panel. I right-clicked on the title I had just downloaded and saved to my computer, and 'Open' was one of the choices shown. I clicked on that, and ADE fulfilled the title. NOW I can drag it into my Nook and access it through either 'Library/Al'l or 'Library/My Files/DigitalEditions'.
