    Authorize Multiple Devices?

    mitchw58163835

      I authorized a first computer Adobe Digital Editions with and Adobe ID. But I cannot seem to authorize a second netbook computer ADE with an Adobe ID in order to transfer books from 2nd device to an ebook reader? How do you authorize multiple devices. You are supposed to be able to do 6. I keep getting error message Cannot authorize with the same ID as used to authorize another device?

       

      Thx.
