Wow, this just bit me hard.
One minute I'm able to download books for my PRS-505. The next, my existing books are WIPED OUT (deleted from the host computer completely, but still in my book reader), and I am completely UNABLE to download any new content.
Oh -- and to make matters worse, I CAN'T DOWNLOAD THE 1.71 VERSION because it requires an internet connection with a browser and FLASH. I DO NOT HAVE FLASH AND DO NOT WANT IT INSTALLED ON THIS SYSTEM -- EVER!!!!!
But there is NO other download link AT ALL for this update.
24 hours away from a long trip (where I needed my book reader) and Adobe pulls this on me. I cannot begin to describe my feelings for Adobe at this moment.
I have just opened my Digital Edition and need to upgrade but when try to do this it comes up with message that aol cannot open upgrade to large how else can i upgrade using what method. Even asked to reminded at later date but it will not let me down load a purchase that is because i think i need to upgrade i need help
A standalone installer can be downloaded from the Developer Network site at http://www.adobe.com/devnet/digitalpublishing/
You'll want to scroll about midway through to find the "Digital Editions Stand-Alone Installer" link
The download from that location is giving me 1.7 and not 1.7.1.
