Freda is for DRM-free ebooks only.
Try the Bluefire or Aldiko app. You should be able to register the app with your Adobe ID directly.
The device still won't show up in ADE.
You will need to copy .epub etc books from the computer to the device as a mounted drive, using a file manager such as Windows Explorer or Mac Finder.
You can then read them in a (registered) Bluefire or Aldiko.
Thank you, but I cannot find something that will load onto a 2007 htc windows mobile 6 device
Sorry, I didn't check and assumed it was Android.
I suspect that you won't be able to read DRM books on the device.
Until pretty recently it was the same for Windows RT devices; there is now an app called DL Reader.
You could check if that was available for Windows Mobile, but I am afraid probably not.
thank you for your help
