What Adobe ID did you authorize within Adobe Digital Editions? From your description it sounds like you currently are using an Anonymous ID on your computer which will make it impossible to transfer protected content to other devices.
Please see Can't authorize with a previously used Adobe ID - http://helpx.adobe.com/digital-editions/kb/id-been-previously-used.html for more information on how to correct this difficulty.
Thank you for your response. You are correct in that I had originally used an Anonymous ID when setting up my account. When trying to figure out my transferring issue, I realized my error and changed my ID to my email address which seemed to work as far as authorizing my PC. However I still cannot transfer to my Nook. I still get the" cannot authorize with a previously used ID" message. I uninstalled Adobe Digital Editions from both my PC and Nook thinking if I reinstalled, as if starting from scratch, it would rectify things. No luck. Still same scenario. What am I not seeing? or doing incorrectly?
You certainly only want one AdobeID for all your devices if at all possible.
It may be that the Nook has kept some memory of an older registration id.
You should be able to undo that, then reregister. To undo that, try (in order)
- ctrl-shift-E to ADE with the Nook plugged in should work.
- If that fails, try to delete 'Digital Editions' and hidden '.adobe-digital-editions' directories from the Nook.
- If that fails, try a factory reset of the Nook.
That will clear all your things from the Nook, so you may NOT want to risk that one.
Thanks for the response. I finally resolved the issue by downloading Digital Editions directly fro Adobe rather than the Library. Not sure what the difference was, but it worked. Perhaps it was actually being signed on to Adobe rather than being connected there thru the library.
