    Read ebook on 2 devices??


      I am trying to read my ebooks on a second device, which is a PC (Win7).  Thus I installed "Adobe Digital Editions" when trying to authorize the "Digital Edsitios" for my PC I entered my Adobe-ID & password. Then The following error message ist displayed: "You cannot aithuórize this PC with an Adobe-ID that was used for another PC already". If I select "authorize without ID" ist fails as well.So my question is if there is any way to read the books I bought(!) on more than one device??  Thanks for any hint :-)

          Sometimes ADE gets its registration/activation confused and in a semi-authorized state.

          Uninstalling and reinstalling does not help.

          Unfortunately, it often then gives misleading error messages about what is wrong.

          A common incorrect message informs you that the ID is already in use on another computer and cannot be reused.

          This can often be resolved by completely removing any authorization using ctrl-shift-D to the Library screen on ADE (cmd-shift-D if on Mac).

          Restart ADE, and then reauthorize with your (old) Adobe ID.

          In extreme cases on the mac, the following extra step has helped some people.  Navigate to /Users//Library/Application Support/Adobe/Digital Editions and drag the activation.dat file to the trash. If you are using 10.7, see Access hidden user library files | Mac OS 10.7 Lion. http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1265248?tstart=0
