          Can you please try re-activating? or try the below case


          Kindly follow the below suggestion and let us know if this helps in resolving this issue:


          1. Download ADE 3.0 from the following URL -  http://www.adobe.com/support/digitaleditions/downloads.html
          2. Install ADE 3.0 on your computer.
          3. Connect the KOBO reader in ADE 3.0
          4. Activate KOBO using ADE 3.0
          5. Now you can transfer and reader books

            Downloading ADE 3.0 didn't work. However, I have finally solved my problem

            by downloading version 2.1.0, which didn't work at first. It only worked

            after I also then pushed Control/Shift/D (all at the same time), to

            deactivate, then unplugged the ereader, then plugged it back in,

            then *authorized

            it again*. During all my attempts to get this to work I also discovered I

            had changed my Adobe ID that was associated with my original ereader/tablet

            (Google Nexus). I found an email stating my email wasn't verified. So I

            re-verified it several hours before everything was solved. Thus, I'm still

            not sure what actually solved the problem, except to say that the last

            thing I did was installing 2.1.0 and re-activating, unplugging and



            Thank you for your advice though. It was much appreciated regardless.

              I have tried the above steps and am still getting this error. CE_COPY_NOT_ALLOWED - No permission to copy this book

              I am on a MacBook Air, and have downloaded first the 4.0 Digital Editions, trashed that one and downloaded 3.0. However, when I open the 3.0 it's showing me my library books that I previously downloaded in 4.0. I'm thinking I didn't uninstall correctly. I dragged the entire folder to the trash but...I'm a PC user, this is my first Mac so I may not be uninstalling correctly. I couldn't find an uninstaller for 4.0.

              Any help would be appreciated. I bought this Kobo Aura specifically to get away from using a tablet - Nexus 7 Android - because of eye strain and now I'm incredibly disappointed that I can't read the library books. I feel a bit short changed by Kobo as well, as they don't reveal the issues with Kobo Aura and Adobe Digital Editions.

                When I uninstalled my Digital Editions 4.0, then installed and uninstalled

                3.0, then uninstalled 3.0 and installed 2.something, each time, my books

                that were previously installed were present in the next install. I think

                you may have uninstalled the program. I am a pc user as well and don't know

                how to uninstall using a mac, sorry
