Please try refreshing the the library on your tablet and check if you start seeing the new ebooks on the device after that. You may refresh by opening the library with the ebooks showing up there and then pulling the screen down and leaving it back up.
In case you do not see the sync working on the computer, then you may try re-launching ADE on the computer and then check if you see the ebooks getting synched there.
Restarting the program worked. However, my comments / highlights in the book were not transferred. How do you solve that?
I am having the same issue, and restarting the program has not helped. I have uninstalled/reinstalled, authorized/deauthorized, and every other type of refresh. Books I have added from to my PC edition are not syncing to any other device.
Does not work
My application is not synching either.
Mine is not syncing either and if I try to transfer to my nook, it shows it in my library on the nook, but says loan token not found. Have tried the whole deauthorize and authorize. Have tried a couple older version of ADE all with no help. The transfering to the Nook used to work,
It just does not work. I have tried all the recommended suggestions and many more without any luck.
It can't be that hard
Also, does not work. Also tested several solutions to no avail. Expected more from an adobe product.
Adobe team, this is obviously not working correctly.
Multiple users have tried reinstalling the app on PC, re-authorizing the account, but sync is not working across devices.
Can we expect some official known issue post from you and ETA for the fix?
For a workaround, we are copy/pasting book files between devices manually, which is not the intended way this should work.
Same problem.. Library at my MAcbook is not synced with Tab ... It was working perfectly well before...But not anymore!
I have this problem as well.
Plus, i had to completely stamp my pc because it wasn't turning on properly so all my e books on my pc are gone. I had hoped they would show up on my laptop, because i had synced with the same id but obviously no..
i had lots and lots of books there..
to add to that, when i open adobe on my newly set up pc no books show up at all...not a single one even though they have the little cloud symbole when i open adobe on my laptop
I have the same issue.
Not ideal when you purchase a book that can only be read by ADE, opening it the first time on my Mac, and now I can't read it on my phone or my tablet.
I came across your 'fix' online and that doesn't work either. Your 'fix' is to deactivate ADE on the device where the problem is; in this case it's my PC. I had no problems with ADE and downloading library ebooks to it, until I started using Overdrive on my iPad. My Libraries part of the Overdrive system. Now reading/downloading ebooks works great on iPad but doesn't work at all on PC any longer. Deactivating on PC is no 'fix'.
Sync not working for me neither between PC and Android
Why doesn't Adobe do anything?
I figured I'd chime in and say I was having this issue as well.
Tried reinstalling/udpating with no luck, some old ones are synced, new ones are not.
I've noticed there's a small cloud icon in the top left corner of synced epubs but I see no selectable command or action I can use to activate (or deactivate, for that matter) this option.
Any clues about this?

I am a first time user of ADE. I am having this problem as well. I added my first book on my PC, and it shows a little cloud symbol. I installed and authorized ADE on my phone, and I've waited for > 1/2 day for my book to appear. I tried de-authorizing and re-authorizing and nothing is showing up.
Does this feature still exist?
I'm having this same problem. I've authorized the same account on both my computer and my samsung s7 and it won't sync. It doesn't show any listed devices.
This does not work.
I have ADE on an iMac, Windows 7 PC, and an Android tablet. At best, the iMac saw two books I installed on the Win7 machine but failed to connect to them. The PC fails to see ANY of the 12 books on my iMac, as does the Android tablet.
All devices have the latest version of ADE (why doesn't ADE check for updates?!) and I updated my password on all devices, forced a deauthorization and then reauthorized all devices. Still no syncing.
This problem has been left Unresolved on this forum for over a year now. Can we please have an update? How about a Force Sych option on ADE?
Does this work for anybody? Sync to ADE Android does not work. Adobe, please reply with some answers.
it doesn't work
My doesn't work either..have the ebook of my laptop but doesn't sync with my Android or iPad device... please help

It doesn't work automatically, however you can copy your ebooks. It's easy, you only have to search the "My Digital Editions" Folder in your first device on a computer it wil be at "My Documents" Folder, if you have an Android, you can search for a folder named "Digital Editions".
Well... once you have found the right folder, you can copy to an USB the book(s) you want to copy to another device.
In the second device you start the ADE program, then you select the "Add to Library" option, and finally you select the book you want!
et Voila! You are ready to read your book in the second device.
Note: You have to previosly authorize the second device with the same account.
I cannot seem to add anything on my android device? Have you had this?
Same problem for me. I'm using Windows 10 x64 (all updates installed) and ADE version 126.96.36.199148 my android tablet is a Alcatel one touch model 9006W.
Logged in and authorized as same ID on both computer and Tablet.
USB connection set to Media - share files
Auto download is enabled
I have tried all suggestions unplugging / exiting / refreshing / reinstalling / ect No luck. The book imported into the computer's ADE - but the tablet does not show up in the library as the getting started book said it would.
I am trying to transfer a ACSM file I borrowed from overdrive and downloaded to my computer. I even tried to just manually transfer the file into the "Books" folder and the "Downloads" folder - I didn't see a specific folder for ADE. When I tried to open the file in downloads the error was "No application to read the file".
The Tab app does not have a File -> open option in it like the desktop version does.
I guess this means... No comic books for us!
Yeah this just doesn't work at all. Evidently if you buy a new Nook, which has a different operating system, it should work, but I can't even get the thing to read on my ipad. Doesn't sync across devices, and doesn't show up in the library or in itunes. Completely maddening, and Adobe help only sends me to forums, where there is also no help -- as per this string. I can BUY a book directly on my Nook, that still works, but when I download from the library, which I used to do all the time, I can only read it on my computer, which I really don't want to.
This worked perfectly going from Windows (authorized and working) to Android phone (authorized and not working). Copied the .pub from PC to phone and t showed up immediately with no refresh.
I have tried EVERYTHING that has been suggested here...with no success...
I'm not interested in installing yet another app to make this app work...then I'd rather directly use the other app, as far as that one works...
Also someone suggested to MANUALLY copy all the books to the other device...what would mean that you also have to set up all the shelves or categories MANUALLY on the other device...that is not the idea behind such a kind of application! That's really annoying!
Very very frustrating but got it working on android but not using Adobe Digital Editions
1. download to Aldiko
2. copy files from PC to google drive
3. download from google drive
4. Go to aldiko and "open file"
5. go to files and click on PDF downloaded from google drive
6. Enter adobe User ID
7. And it worked for me
Very frustrating. After the above worked I tried to copy the PDF to the Adobe Manifest folder but that did not work either. Hope the above helps someone
I have the same problem i.e., ADE stopped displaying the ebooks I checked out in Overdrive. Any ideas on on how to "return borrowed item(s)" to the library (Overdrive) if they aren't displayed in an ADE?
Same issue. Have a laptop but I only read from my tablet.
Have the app on both devices. Have uninstalled/reinstalled the apps. Have de-authorised and authorised both devices but my books are not on my tablet.
The only way to read them on the tablet is to save them on a memory card, put that in the tablet, add all the books individually to drop box, then open them all individually in digital editions. I have over 150 so this is very time consuming especially when every time I download a new book I have to do this whole process again.
There must be an easy way to read books on both devices? Why aren't they on the tablet automatically when I've used the same adobe ID?

Bloody useless app. just installed and registered on computer and android tablet but cannot for the life of me get the books on the tablet.
tried all suggestions above
This message appears on my computer: "You can only authorize this computer with an Adobe ID that has not been used previously to authorize any other computer or mobile device, please try again.31
What should we do when we can not authorize other devices?
How do I delete all authorizations in Adobe and authorize them all again? If this is the problem.
Can you help me solve this problem please?
Same issue here. It'd be super cool if Adobe cared enough about its customers to fix a serious issue that has apparently been broken for at least 6+ months now.
This is still an issue, I have given up trying to read library books on my kobo as there seems to be no fix for that, so I installed the digital editions app on my phone. I was able to read one book and now that I have new library books they are not syncing. Tried ll of the advice and tips here and nothing has worked. VERY FRUSTRATED. Adobe, can you do anything right? Can you please fix your issues so people can continue using your products they way that they are ADVERTISED to be able to be used?FIX YOUR ISSUES, PLEASE. This is a problem that has been going on for almost a year. Do you need to hire new IT staff - please consider this.
Still does not sync across devices that are authorized, windows 7 10 and android user here. Absolute trash, Adobe should be ashamed.
You just have to be impressed by the cool attitude of Adobe - simply ignoring the thread and the obvious problems.
In my case I've installed the book on my macbook - trying to access it from Android. The app doesn't suggest that it is trying to sync, so no clue as to where the problem occurs.
So I wasn’t able to get multiple devices to sync but I realized you hav to just load it manually. it did work that way
