    Error trying to authorize new computer to transfer books to e-reader


      I had previously had my adobe digital editions on a computer that I recently got rid of. I am trying to transfer books from my library onto my nook using my new computer. I downloaded digital editions and downloaded the ePub books, but I cannot copy them to my nook in digital editions unless it is authorized. When I try to sign in with my adobe ID it says that I can't authorize with an ID that's been previously used on another computer or mobile device. How can this be? It says you can transfer items in up to 6 devices. Help please!

              Close all applications.

              Choose Start > Run.

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

              In the left pane of the Registry Editor, locate the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adept

              Select the Adept key.

              Choose File > Export.

              In the Export Registry File dialog box, select Selected Branch under Export Range. Enter a name and location for the backup registry key, and then click Save.

              Right-click the Adept key and choose Delete.

              In the Confirm Key Delete dialog, click OK.

              Close the Registry Editor.

              Open Adobe Digital Editions and reauthorize.




              quit Adobe Digital Editions.

              Navigate to /Users//Library/Application Support/Adobe/Digital Editions and drag the activation.dat file to the trash.
