Yep, I had a similar problem. You may find it helpful to read my post “What to do if you can’t authorise your ereader”. You'll find it down a few posts.
I cannot transfer books either. And no, that post was not at all helpful.
There is no command to sync books to or authorize my ereader. I understand that it was supposed to happen "automatically" but it didn't. I can't believe Adobe's only support is this dumb*ss message board.
I can understand why the other post wasn't helpful - if only reading the post is all one does! You haven't emailed me for the solution to my problem that I found (which is what I suggest people reading the post actually do!)
Anyway, I understand the frustration. I, along with many others, are finding ADE to be a seriously flawed product. Time will see Adobe solutions to people's various problems emerge I imagine but, in the meantime, too many hours being wasted by too many people.
I have a similar problem. I have recently been given a MiGear BSTE102. I have downloaded "Adobe Reader Mobile" onto the MiGear device, as it is supposed to read "epub" files with an epub or acsm extension.
I have successfully downloaded Adobe Digital Editions on to my Personal Computer and also successfully downloaded an E-book (in epub format) to my PC, which I can clearly read on my PC with Adobe Digital Editions. No problem on the PC.
However, I transfer the book/file to the MiGear portable E-reader, but Adobe Reader Mobile does not recognise that there is even a file in the E-book "Digital Editions" Folder. I know it is there, because both my PC recognises it in the separate drive and a search on the Ebook finds the file but lists a ? next to it. It is unable to be read.
Why does Digital Editions not recognise the file on the E-Reader? The file extension is acsm whichis supposed to be synonymous with epub. What is the best solution
The short answer probably is that, at this point of time, Adobe and your ereader aren't compatible. Check out this link: http://blogs.adobe.com/digitalpublishing/supported-devices
