I cannot get the Digital Editions loaded on my PC to "see" my Playbook when it is attached so that I can download books from the library (it dos now show on the Bookshelf). PC says it is authorized.
Thank you, Cherry
You've been caught up in the syndrome that, just because you're supposed
to be able to read ebooks on your device, you assume that all you have to
do is to hook it to your PC and you're good to go. There's some technology
in the middle, and it's important because it makes everything work.
ADE does not support your Blackberry. That's not going to change soon,
either, unfortunately. Once you get your library ebook downloaded to your
computer, you can't transfer it to your Blackberry.
The Problem is another in my opinion.
- Playbook can read DRM-eBooks with Kobo.
- Kobo Desktop is a featured device on Windows, but I can't import there my books from ADE or send them from ADE to Kobo.
- ADE supports the playbook not native
I have to a) remove DRM and copy it on my playbook; or b) use another Reader (Android) to read DRM-protected ebooks. This not easy-way.
Please tell us how we can send our bought ebooks from ADE to KoboDesktop. This would be the way Adobe says.
No, the Blackberry is not a supported device under ADE. Your choice of
the term 'not native' could mean that the Blackberry is supported some
other way by ADE, which is not true. Thus, there is no way to connect the
Blackberry to ADE directly.
ADE does provide both library management and support for DRM-enabled
epublications. As you point out, so do other software systems. And
because there are other software systems that do support DRM-enabled
publications, plus other systems interface with your Blackberry, perhaps
you should look at those systems to use instead of ADE.
Yes, KOBO's desktop support for epublications is independent of, and cannot
run with, ADE.
So, if you have alternatives, why are you asking how to interface ADE with
the KOBO desktop?
I hoped to get help, but Adobe won't do it.
My alternative is illegal and you give me advice to do it? O-(
It's not neccessary to sync to kobo desktop, but directly to the Playbook.
Where is the announced support of the Playbook?
