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

    MWatson1219

      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!
