There are a couple of things you talk about here. One is the Adobe
software and one is the ereader.
For the software, don't confuse Adobe Reader with Adobe Digital Editions.
They're very separate products, and Reader does not work with ebooks in
Digital Editions format. So, are you talking about Reader or Digital
Editions? Your ereader and its instructions should tell you which one.
Also, when you talk about 'registering DRM', that's not what happens.
'DRM' stands for Digital Rights Management, and it's not software. It's
the way that a publisher, distributor or library restrict the use of an
ebook - and you don't register for it because it's a set of attributes
built into ebooks themselves, not Reader or Digital Editions.
Next, the ereader that you mention is not supported by Digital Editions, so
even if you get it registered, it's very likely that you won't be able to
interact with Digital Editions. THIS
take you to the Adobe Digital Editions webpage that lists those ereaders
and other devices that are supported. Many off-brand manufacturers promise
that their ereader will work with Adobe software, but in the real world,
Getting to the preloaded ebooks on your ereader should not involve
registering with Adobe, but it probably does involve registering with the
manufacturer's website. You may be able to do that from the ereader
wirelessly, but you'll have to go to THEIR website, not to Adobe's. Check
the 'user's guide' that came with your ereader for directions.
Hope this helps!
I am having the same problem with my daughter's new iTomic E reader, can't register DRM which means can't read any of the books she wants to download. All the manual says is to go register for an adobe digital edition account then use that id and password as your DRM register. What I really don't get is that it really does work for some people even though its not on Adobes list! And of course the company is out of business so you can't get any help at all!
Please read the answer I posted to this question. It covers the issues
you're having, and (hopefully) clarifies what 'DRM' is.
Thanks, I had read your post and sadly the ereader still doesn't work. I know what DRM stands for and on the iTonic e-reader you have to register your adobe digital edition account under the DRM register section in order to read any book you download. Basically its just connecting your adobe account to your ereader in order to allow the transfer of DRM protected books.
There is obviously a problem with the the reader my daughter recieved as I have talked to people who were able to get that part to work while hers still says application error. The company is out of business and the manual is pretty much a joke. It tells you how to do stuff step by step (Add your adobe digital editions id and password in the DRM register) but no troubleshooting instructions beyond, make sure your internet is connected!
The fact that it has worked for other people and has some pretty good reviews tells me this one is just junk and will be sent back asap! Thanks for the help though.
