I tried the "unblock" trick that I found on this forum to no avail. I also found the direct link to the PDF inside the .acsm file and downloaded that, but the DRM would not recognize it either. I cntrl-alt-d'ed and re-registered Digital Editions in case that it did not recognize the first time.
None of these tricks worked... Any others that I haven't thought of?
Well... I locked myself out of the single book I have gotten to work with this god-forsaken piece of software. Apparently I have reinstalled too much, it tells me "too many activations" now when I try and start up Digital Editions.
X( Good grief. Anyone know how to get my lone book back?
Im also under your same cincunstance... There's a NEED to avoid this problem! I need to work!
I have had this to happen to me three times now and there isn't a set way to remedy the problem. I now understand why people don't want to use this software. I have done everything from posting on the forums to calling the customer service number (language barrier in communicating with representatives) to contacting Sony since I have a Sony Reader. Nothing is quick and it is never the same to fix. There are thousands of people with this problem so you would think Adobe would have an interest in making a viable solution quick and easy for the user. Had I known this was such a problem, I may not have purchased the Sony Reader.
If anyone can help with this "Too Many Activations" error code 2023, please let me know.
I REALLY dislike Adobe for this poor service.
