KINDLE: Can I transfer EPUBs to Kindle?

You can transfer EPUBs to a Kindle Fire, however, you need to install the OverDrive Media Console app. See our Kindle user guide for instructions.

How do I transfer EPUBs to supported eBook devices?

To transfer Adobe eBooks using Adobe Digital Editions…

  • Open Adobe Digital Editions.
  • Click on the Adobe eBook you want to transfer.
  • Drag the Adobe eBook to the eBook device icon in the left pane of Adobe Digital Editions.
  • The 'Copy Documents' dialog box is displayed and the title is transferred.
  • When transfer is complete the 'Copy Documents' dialog box closes. You can now disconnect the eBook device and enjoy the eBook on-the-go.

Note that to transfer Adobe eBooks to a supported eBook device, Adobe Digital Editions and the eBook device must be activated using the same Adobe ID.
