After reading this post and the tech support notes, I strongly suspect that Sony created a second AdobeID for you. You should have gotten an email when they did this, and it will typically happen if your Sony ID is different than your Adobe ID. Since this happens during installation of Sony EBL, it activates your computer for the new AdobeID (which renders the exisiting content unreadable because of the licensed to a different account error).
After you confirmed that this is indeed the problem, then to get this fixed (and it is a known problem acknowledged by Sony), you will need to contact Sony so that they can associate your Sony Account with the correct AdobeID, and give you redownload links for all content purchased from Sony so that it can be licensed to the correct AdobeID (the old one).
Thank you so much! Know I just have to figure out what my previous ID was...
I did not get an email when my account was changed.
Ok, I carefully went through my records, and exhausted all other possibilities and from what I can tell this is my original adobe ID.
I am sure that my computer was activated with an ID because I transfered content between computers when I switched computers 2 years ago. Is there any way that their could be to ID's set up for this email that are somehow not associated?
First see what your current AdobeID is by going to ADE and selecting "Authorize Computer" from the Library menu, see if it is the AdobeID you think it should be.
Then just to make sure create a different OS user account.
Logged into the new user, Authorize Digital Editions with the AdobeID you think is your original.
Try to open up the books that you currently can't open up.
If you can successfully open the books that you cannot currently open then that is your original AdobeID.
If this doesn't work, then email me two of the documents (one that you can open, and one that you can't open), and I can tell you the AdobeIDs associated with each.
