A computer truism: if everything works BUT one thing, then there's
something wrong with that thing. I suspect that the library ebook has
digital rights set so that it cannot be copied. You can check this by
bringing up ADE in Library mode, and hovering your cursor over the small
arrow next to the ebook's name. A drop-down menu will appear, and you
click on 'Item Info'. Another menu will appear, and the digital rights for
the ebook are displayed in the middle. I'm thinking that copying is not
allowed, and that's what's keeping you from reading the ebook on your
Thanks for your reply Frustrated in AZ.
I have just done as you suggested and the results are ;
Viewing on any device until 20/12/12,
Copying not allowed,
Printing not allowed.
This ereader is a KOBO Mini and when I checked Adobe to see what readers it supports KOBO was listed.
I have spent so much time on this I have just about given up
I'm afraid I have some bad news. If copying is not allowed, you're not
going to be able to get the ebook to your KOBO ereader. The ebook's
digital rights won't allow it.
You can still read it on your computer, of course. And you could contact
your source for the ebook and see if they will change the digital rights
and allow you to download the ebook again.
I was under the impression that if the book was an EPUB and if it allows viewing on any device it should be ok. I thought copying meant that you could not make a copy of the book.
I just checked a book (not the same title) on another device with the same permissions and I could open it with no problem. I am wondering if there is something with the newer version of ADE that is causing the problem.
The book I checked on a different reader was loaded before I upgraded to ADE 2.0
I guess I can't use reference booksfrom the library
The copying that dialog refers to is copy/paste of text. The key phrase in that dialog is 'viewing on any device'. which means this isn't a perms promblem.
At first guess you are not using ADE to transfer the content, and Kobo is handling the resulting error badly.
Thank you Jim Lester
So even if I have ADE open and the book iis showing in the ADE library when I click and drag it to my reader it is not being transfer though ADE?
