The Galaxy Tablet is not a supported device. There is ebook reader
software on it that will work with an ebook downloaded by ADE, but the
normal ADE transfer to an ereader doesn't work with Android devices - the
OS is not compatible with Windows or Mac OS.
The error message you're getting is specific to time, date AND time zone.
All I can suggest is that you check those settings again..... The way you
describe when you get the message, I suspect the tablet.
I am frustrated as well with the poor documentation of error messages, but
we have what we have until or unless Adobe devotes the proper resources and
project management to upgrades and new releases. Every message that's
posted complaining about error messages should be taken seriously by the
internal development team....
If you want to try something else, you have choices. Bluefire Reader,
Calibre and Overdrive media seem to be the more popular ones. Samsung may
have something now - I understood that they were working on it.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help!
Thx for reply, but the expired error was produced on my laptop, and yes I did check and re-check my time, zone internet time and it is correct. On Galaxy tablet I am using Aldiko (it's best) app and Overdrive. Till now worked really well, the error which I am getting on tablet it's different "Unknown" ( I also posted here. As I am getting completly different errors on different devices I start to suspect the ADE itself.
It's a lots of annoyed users on Internet and honestly even the interface of ADE it's not user friendly, to find out a simple solutions how to de-authorise the computer you have to go to forum and search for the answer, it's ridiculous.
Lokks like the acsm file have the timestamp as well and if does not match the current time, then the activation server assusmes that the title expired. After deleting all acms files and download them again I was able to open them in ADE without a problem.
I would love that this sort of information Adobe will share it.
Like many users, I thought this process was 'plug and play' - because
that's what we're used to. I knew that ADE comes with a Help and FAQ set
which describes thoroughly how ADE works, how to set it up and how its
features and functions can be manipulated, but I thought I could bulldoze
my way through the process logically. Didn't work well.
The only reason I'm able to answer a lot of the questions on the Forum is
that I read the Help material. If you do that also, you'll find
explanations of many things that have frustrated you, such as how to
deauthorize and authorize a computer, what steps to follow when attaching
an ereader, what the various panels mean and what the drop-down menu
contents can do. You don't have to come to the forum to get answers.
Granted, it's easier to ask the question, but you might be misunderstood
and get the wrong answer.....
From your description of at least one issue you have, you may be running
into some digital rights issues. Those rights are set up by publishers,
distributors and authors relating to copying and printing their products.
ADE, Overdrive, SONY, B&N, KOBO, Amazon and Apple all deal with those
rights - it's not an 'issue' with the package doing something wierd. To
its credit, ADE does tell you 'no permission to copy here' when you attempt
to move a DRM-protected ebook to an ereader. You just need to understand
In your unstable situation, do any of the errors repeat themselves? If the
only one that does is the 'time' issue, then we still have to get the
settings set correctly - even if they appear to be just fine. I'd suggest
now that you do a reset on the Galaxy and then see if the time settings are
correct. One of the former Adobe people has told the fourm several times
that the time has to be set within five minutes of the true time....
You can use Overdrive, Bluefire Reader, Calibre and several other software
packages to do the same job as ADE does if you have had it 'up to HERE'
with all of the things that have gone on. It may be too late to read the
Help section, but if it's not, I think you'll be in control of your setup,
and maybe things will start to fall into place. If you switch, you'll have
to start all over again....
Thanks for your answers, but as I stated previously I resolved on the laptop the 'expiry' error, the ascm files have a time stamp.
On Galaxy tablet it's completly different error Import failed E_ADEPT_UNKNOWN http://ascepub.contenreserve.com/fulfillment/Fulfill"
BTW, Bluefire reader is for Ipad, not Android, android uses Aldiko reader and Overdrive, Calibre it's only available for PCs and I am using on my laptop.
It be much easier for everyone , if Adobe will have a list of errors with explonations.
Sometimes the posts get 'out of time' also - that is to say that someone
will be answering a post and not know that there are other posts after the
one that is being answered.... Happens all the time.
I may have missed the segment in your posts that you were working with
library ebooks, which have an expiration setting in their downloading.
And thanks for the comment about error messages from the Galaxy Tab. It's
another entry in the CBOK.
