    Erase Authorization

    Leon Capart

      I cannot erase my authorization. I tried with my Adobe password, and the one from "Authorization Information" that includes 45 digits.

      Nothing works, and I still cannot read any ebooks from the Public Library thru OverDrive.

      It's been over 2 weeks now and I can get no answer as to how to fix this. None from Adobe, OverDrive, Nook, Local library.

      I was even thinking about buying a new Nook, but the problem would probably still be there.

      Please help

          1. quit Adobe Digital Editions.
          2. 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 library files | Mac OS 10.7 and later.
          3. Open Adobe Digital Editions and reauthorize.

          3. In the Open text box, type regedit and then press Enter. The Registry Editor opens.
