As far as I'm aware Nook DRMed books will not open on the Kobo eReaders (though I haven't tried it). Apparently they will open in the Adobe Digital Editions app on the PC, but if you use ADE to transfer them to a Kobo the eReader will report they are locked.

However, given you have an iPad, why not install the Nook iOS app and read the book on that? The app is free and works very well.

I belive this is correct, Barnes and Noble DRM is not compatible with the Kobo, but it is very easy to remove the DRM using the correct tools which you can find here

You do need to have a bit of technical know-how, but it's not really that difficult and once you have done it the first time you'll find it a doddle. B&N base their DRM encryption on the name and credit card number stored in your B&N account, so you will need these to hand.

Did you try setting it to Wumbo?

I'm not a lawyer but...

Remember that distribution, promotion and/or use of such techniques may not be legal in your neck of the woods. In the US the DMCA probably applies and there are European Directives that cover much the same ground. In the UK it is possible that the Copyright and Related Rights Regulations 2003 apply (assuming ebooks are considered "protected computer programmes"). I haven't heard of anyone being convicted for breaking DRM for personal use but it may be technically illegal (but then formatting shifting TV programmes probably is as well).
