2 Ways to Transfer Kobo ePub to Sony eReader


kobo to sonyQuestion: I have a Sony eReader and my brother has a Kobo Vox. We both have a lot of eBooks and we would like to share them with each other. But when I plugged his KoboVox into my computer, I can’t drag and drop the books like I usually do. The eBooks of these two eReaders are both ePub, which means that it should not be very difficult to transfer. But now, for whatever reason it is being very hard. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!

Answer: Transferring Kobo ePub books to Sony eReader, you should authorize your Sony eReader using your Adobe® ID. Sony Reader Library software is also necessary. In this tutorial, we will tell you two options to transfer Kobo ePub to Sony eReader.

Method 1: Read Kobo ePub on Sony Reader with Adobe ID
