How to transfer eBooks to an eBook reader using Adobe Digital Editions

Print

For reading on the go, you can transfer downloaded eBooks to an eBook reader using Adobe Digital Editions (ADE). Downloaded eBooks can be transferred to readers that support DRM-protected eBooks.

Note: These instructions are for ADE 2.0 or newer. We recommend always using the latest version of ADE.

What you need

  • A computer (Windows or Mac)
  • A compatible eBook reader
  • The USB cable that came with the eBook reader
  • Adobe Digital Editions for Windows or Mac
  • An activated Adobe ID on your computer and your eBook reader.
    This should be the same ID on both devices.

Transferring eBooks to an eBook reader

  1. Connect the eBook reader to your computer.
  2. Open ADE on your computer. Make sure you're in "Library" view.
    Your eBook reader should show up under "Devices."
    Note: If you don't see your device, you may need to install some additional software. Please check your eBook reader's documentation for more information.
