            When you activate your Literati with Kobo, you will need to set up an

            account with Kobo.  You may never use it for downloading ebooks, but it's

            required for your Literati to be 'registered'.  You registered with Adobe as

            well, so when you use ADE to connect to the Literati, it will pick up the

            registration and permit you to attach the Literati to ADE so you can

            transfer ebooks.  Here are some items to check:

             

            You should set up your Literati to access the Kobo bookstore wirelessly.

            That's important because Kobo delivers software updates to your Literati via

            wireless - and you need the latest update so that ADE will work correctly

            with it.

             

            You need to attach your Literati to your computer first, so it has a chance

            to recognize the Literati and set it up as a USB drive (PC's) or external

            hard drive (Mac's).

             

            Then, open the ADE application.  It should recognize the Literati in the

            Library pane, on the left hand side.  You can then drag and drop ebooks from

            the right hand pane to the Literati.

             

            I do it all the time....

                Hi,

                 

                In order to fix this you can try following.

                 

                Solution 1) Modify the manifest.xml file located in C:\Usres\Username\My Documents\My Digital Editions:
                1) Quit Digital Editions
                2) Make a backup copy of the manifest.xml (call it something like manifest.good)
                3) Open manifest.xml in notepad
                4) It will appears as one big long line of xml, and you are looking for a tag called  start at the begginning of this
                    and select until you the end of the tag that looks called </de:deviceID>
                5) If you have attached more than one Reader there may be multiple of these.  Delete all of them to make sure.
                6) Save the file (manifest.xml) and quit out of notepad
                7) Ensure you have the Reader plugged in
                8) Launch Digital Editions
                9) The Device Setup Assitant should come up.
                  a) Do NOT click on the "Don't ask again for this device" checkbox.
                  b) Do click on the "Authorize Device" button.

                 

                Solution 2) 1) Open Digital Editions.
                                    2) Connect the Reader and open it.
                                    3) Press the keys Ctrl + Shift + E  on your keyboard.
                                    4) Now unplug the Reader and replug it.
                                    5) There you will find a new drive created similar to C or D drive under "My computer".
                                    6) Open the Readers Drive and you will find one or two folders with name adobe.digital.editions.
                                    7) Delete this folder and plug off and re plug in the Reader.
                                    8) Authorize Reader from the same Adobe ID which you used to Authorize Adobe Digital Editions.

                 

                I hope this will work for you!!!!

                  My computer runs Windows 7 and doesn't seem to recognize the Literati when I connect it via the USB.  After quite a while it does show up in the directory under My Computer, but it won't access anything.  I've reset both the Literati and the computer, but still doesn't work.  I do have the latest Literati software loaded.  (Note my old computer running Windows ME does recognize the Literati when connected thru the USB and I can see the files.  But I can't activate with that computer -- it's too small and slow to run Adobe Digital.)  Any ideas, anyone?

                    I had the same problem.  On ADE they were showing up on my lookbook...but not on the actual lookbook itself.  On your eReader...go to the Documents tab.  The books might be there.  Once you click on them there and they open, they will then show up on your "I'm reading" tab.  Also, depending on what you downloaded, if you click on the information for the book it might say that it is only readable on your computer.  I am not a 'computer' type person...so I found this all out accidentally, ha!

                      Part of my frustration is with Microsoft.  Win 7 and XP should work the same

                      way when it comes to handling external devices plugged into a USB port - but

                      sometimes they don't.  This seems to be one of those times....  Your

                      Literati should show up as an external hard drive in Win 7 within moments of

                      being plugged in.  And when you open ADE, it should show the Literati (or

                      any other ereader) almost immediately.  I don't understand the delay you've

                      been experiencing, unless Win 7 or your anti-virus software is doing a full

                      scan on the ereader before it shows you the linkage.

                       

                      If you drag and drop an edocument from ADE to your ereader, its placement on

                      your ereader depends on what kind of edocument it is.  epub's should show up

                      as 'books', while pdf''s should show up as 'documents'.  The Literati is

                      programmed to do that.  ADe doesn't care that much - it lumps them together

                      in the Library.  Cookiewelder hit that nail on the head....

                       

                      Cookiewelder?  I usually eat mine whole.
