Nook and Macbook Pro 6 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 0
I recently bought a Macbook Pro, and am still learning how to use it since I am mostly a PC user. I also own a original Nook, not the color one. How do I download my epubs to my mac and actually be able to transfer, and use them? When I download my books to the MAC it says that the program is unable to be found. So I am not sure how I can transfer books from nook to mac to nook without the proper software. I know there are third party programs that would allow for easy converting, but I don't know which ones to use?

I'm assuming they are from a source other than B&N. Books from some sources (public libraries, Kobo) have DRM protection and must be loaded onto the Nook using Adobe Digital Editions (installed on your Mac).
-Connect your Nook to your Mac with the usb cable, it should appear on your desktop the same as any removable drive.
-Drag & Drop file from Mac to Nook - see below

This is from page 163 of the User Guide:

You can put files in these places on your NOOK:
• Digital reading content (EPUB, PDB, and PDF formats):
Place these files in the my documents folder in your NOOK’s internal memory, or in any top-level folders that you create
in the internal memory or on a supplemental microSD card. Optionally, you can organize the files using subfolders

Don't not put them in the B&N folder on your Nook - this is for direct downloads from B&N.

No actually, I am unable to read the ones that I have downloaded from B n N. I was transferring books from my nook to my sisters and tried to open them and it would not work. It didn't download as an epub or pdf, that was what is confusing me. ON my PC I did not have to do any converting at all. So when I download books straight from my bn n account I still cannot open them.

There is eReader software for the Mac that should open the books on your Macbook Pro:

www.barnesandnoble.com/ebooks/download-reader.asp?dltab=mac

Unfortunately this software is not as advanced as the PC version.

If you copy a B&N book from your Nook to another Nook:

-It needs to go in the My Documents folder on the second Nook, not B&N
-When you try to open it on the second Nook, you will probably be prompted for credit card info to unlock it

The books are DRM protected,converting requires stripping the DRM from the file first - technically illegal.
