Can I use my Sony Reader digital book with eBooks purchased from the Barnes & Noble™ Web site?

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

Most of Barnes & Noble™ ebooks are offered in EPUB format and are protected by a Digital Rights Management technology created by Adobe® called ACS4 which is compatible with all Sony Readers.

IMPORTANT: The Reader™ Digital Book will not be recognized by the B&N software. To transfer books purchased in the B&N website you will need to install the Reader for PC or Mac software on your computer  and import the books to your library . Once the books are imported, the Reader software will sync your library with your Reader.
