    Activation Server Error - code: E_AUTH_NOT_READY

    chiclet6

      Up until today I was able to add books from my local library to Digital Editions and then add them onto my Kobo.

      Now, for reasons I don't understand, it will allow me to download the books from the library, but not add them to my Kobo.

      I looked and it says my computer is "Authorized without an ID" and that basically this means I can't add books to another device.

      So, I went to authorize it using my Adobe ID and I'm getting the error message:

           Activation Server Error

           code: E_AUTH_NOT_READY

           Digital Editions encountered an error on the activation server.

       

      Does anyone know how to fix this or what I've done wrong?  Please help!
