You are only allowed to install apps from the Amazon app store with Kindle Fire. But you can fix this by setting the tablet. Go to settings >> More ... >> Device >> Allow Installation of Applications >> ON.

I am on a mac and there doesn't seem to be a nook for mac application that works anymore.  I really want to download my nook books and would love some help if you have any ideas.

I'm having the same difficulty. I can't find an app for my MacBook Air to download on my dock. Once I do that, I hope to convert my nook books to kindle books.

BUT - I NEED THE MAC APP FIRST! any thoughts?

07/24/2016 07:23:33
Followed the instructions and it worked great. Only thing is I can only access from Docs. Can't add them to collections. Otherwise Fantastic!

In Epubor Ultimate I can see books in left hand side under Adobe, as epub File but when I drag it to the right, it says "DRM is removing, please make sure you can read the ebook on your computer at first". This remains at 0% and does not progress, and they do not appear in the right hand side.
09/16/2016 00:41:07
Will my nook books continue to be available for my nook reader or will that version of the book become obsolete?
10/23/2016 00:49:19
Thank you very much. Your instructions worked perfectly. I have been trying to do this for months now.
05/10/2017 20:59:16
Worked like a charm. I did have to buy the Epubor Ultimate because I had too many ebooks for the trial version, but otherwise it worked perfectly. Thanks so much as I had gone through six Nooks in a year and not one of them worked correctly.

I am having a problem transferring my Nook e-books to kindle.  The instructions that are given for # 3 "Transfer converted Mobi books to kindle e readers" is not working. I have a new kindle fire but used this instruction for transferring my e-books.  For # 2- "Transfer Nook books to kindle Fire (HD)" instructions, there isn't a Select More... " Device setting on my kindle fire (HD).  These instructions are not helpful to me.  Additionally, when I had to buy the Epubor Ultimate software to transfer my books my library is large and only 436 e-books transferred.  I originally have 554 e-books, so what happened to the rest of my e-books during the transfer?  None of these instructions help me.  If anyone can give me some assistance, I appreciate it!  Otherwise, I am returning my kindle even though I had to buy Epubor Ultimate.

To heck with that. I think I'll continue to lay my sacrifice at the altar of the Amazon Behemoth until an easier solution comes around.

Did they changed nooks look because I can't get it to do what I want it to do????
08/21/2018 17:27:16
The nook for pc is very old version. You need to download your nook books via Nook for PC and then use Epubor Ultimate to remove DRM and convert it to Mobi.

I just paid the $24.99 to get my software registered and my books are still only showing on my kindle as text documents not azw3.
12/3/2018 10:05:07
Hi there,
Please ensure you have registered successfully. Also, you can restrart the software and then DRAG & DROP the book to the right column to decrypt again. It should be in its original format.
Or you can contact support@epubor.com to get more assistance.

Great information, but I can't even download "nook for mac" I can't even start!
Can you help?
02/11/2019 09:30:56
Since the Nook has discontinued the Nook for mac for many year and the nook for mac does not work with the latest Mac SYSTEM, there is no way to install Nook for mac on your Mac computer. The best way to download nook books via Nook for windows and then copy it to your Mac computer to remove the Nook DRM.
02/13/2019 07:25:12
When I drag and drop the books it gives be the B&N DRM failed message, and I've already entered my nook account information as you described. Is there anything else that could be causing this?
02/13/2019 10:35:17
After downloading nooks books via Nook app, then sign in Nook Study(it doesn't matter even if you can't sign in NookStudy successfully), next run Epubor software, click Nook tab in the left side-bar to load all of your nook books to the software and add them to the right main window, then you will be able to remove NOOK DRM with no problem. If you still failed to remove Nook DRM, you can feel free to contact support@epubor.com to get instant help.

I’m not sure I understand what NookStudy is. I haven’t found anything called NookStudy that I can log into.
03/25/2019 14:17:48
We are sincerely sorry to inform you that Nook has discontinued the server for Nook study about half a month ago. So the only way to download Nook books is via Nook windows 10 app.
07/16/2019 06:20:14

I had no problem downloading the software or loading my books. My problem is I do not have a Nook option in the setting to put my information in. I have Output, Kindle, ADE, Favorite as options. How do I remedy this>


07/16/2019 09:37:48
Thank you for using Epubor software. We are sincerely sorry to inform you that the NOOk option has been removed from our software because Nook has changed its DRM scheme. For now, this softwarecannot remove Nook drm. We are sincerely sorry for the inconvenience caused. Once this new DRM has been cracked, we will let you know. Have a nice day!
