    Authorization problem with computer and Nook


      I am tryng to transfer an Overdrive book from my computer to my Nook.

      I received a pop-up that said that I could only read the book on the computer because the Nook was not authorized.

      However, when I went in to authorize my computer it said that that Adobe ID already existed.

      This is the only computer that I have had and I have not exceeded the 8 device limit .

      So, why cannot  I get it to authorize my computer and Nook?

          ADE often gets its authorization confused.


          First return the library book ~ it is probably now authorized with the mixed-up id, and you might not be able to return it once your proper ID is registered.


          Clear any old authorization using ctrl-shift-D to ADE (cmd-shift-D if on Mac).

          Restart ADE.

          Try again to authorize ADE with your Adobe ID.


          Then you should be able to set the ID into the Nook as well; and borrow the book back again.


          Good luck ~ what a rubbish implementation of DRM Adobe has produced....
