    anonyme Adobe-ID



      I am facing following problem.

      I have so far read my eBooks on my ASUS Tablet and bought also from there, and downloaded.

      Well, now my Tablet has unfortunately a little weird and should reset to factory settings are, therefore, I have loaded all on the PC my eBooks.

      Here, I have now downloaded the Digital Edition to me, as there is created an Adobe ID.

      Which brings me to my problem, the eBooks on my computer with the ID doesn't, because these are used by a different ID.

      I got but to date no applied.

      I looked at the app on my tablet, and I had to realize that here is:

      "To use a randomly generated anonymous Adobe ID."

      What do I do now??? I can't not all eBooks new shopping???

      Can you somehow read this ID?

          That is an awkward one.  These randomly generated IDs are a vicious trap that Adobe lays for unsuspecting customers.

          They do give very mild warnings, but not nearly strong enough.

          When you register 'without ID', ADE (or the tablet app in your case) creates an anonymous/implicit ID with limited powers (eg can't be used to share with other devices).

          Whenever you first load a DRM book, that copy of the book is associated with whatever ID the computer is registered to at the time.

          Any book you load while this anonymous ID is active gets associated with that ID, and can't be read on any other device.

          When you properly register your computer with a real ID, that old anonymous ID is lost.

          Now you don't have any devices that can read the book.


          The only way I know round this is to use a DRM stripper such as epubee BEFORE you deauthorize the device.

          I do NOT advocate using such code to get around the valid limitations placed on a DRM book.

          However, where the problem arises only because of the ineptness of Adobe's ADEPT DRM infrastructure and its implementation,

          such a measure is totally justifiable.


          If the device is a PC then epubee provides a relatively painless way to do the stripping.

          As your unauthorized device is android I don't think epubee will work.

          If you are technical you may be able to resolve this using one of the other methods from http://www.epubee.com/remove-drm-from-epub-on-adobe.html

          Good luck with that.
