      I use to have Adobe Digital Editions on my old computer which crashed and have tried numerous times to install it on my new computer and everytime I try to transfer the ebooks I've downloaded, I get a message saying No permission to copy book.  Can someone help me please?

            Moving this discussion to the Adobe Digital Editions forum.  It is likely that your copy of Adobe Digital Editions is authorized to a different user than the one you purchased the book under.  Which operating system are you using?

              The original post was:

               

               

              "I used to have Adobe Digital Editions on my old computer which crashed and

              have tried numerous times to install it on my new computer and everytime I

              try to transfer the ebooks I've downloaded, I get a message saying *No

              permission to copy book*.  Can someone help me please?"

              Bob's comment is not on point.  As I just posted to someone else, this

              message is telling you that the Digital Rights in the ebooks you're trying

              to transfer will not permit you to copy/transfer them to your new

              computer.  ADE creates a small 'tag' file for every ebook you download and

              it contains the DRM protection settings.  Because you're trying to move

              them from one computer to the other, ADE will compare the tag file to the

              current information and the DRM settings.  If the DRM settings won't allow

              copying, you will get this message.

               

              What do you do?  One idea is to take stock of all of the ones that won't

              transfer.  If they were purchased, then you might be able to get the seller

              to authorize a download to your new computer.
