    Digital Editions-Transfer

      When trying to transfer a book to the Nook Color, I receive an error:  CE_COPY_NOT_ALLOWED - No permission to copy the book.  This started when I installed OS X Mavericks and the new Digital Editions.

          Have you authorized your new copy of Digital Editions?

          It may be there is some remanent of the old authorization in which case you need to deauthroize then reauthorize (cmd-shift-D, details below).

          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.
