I am having the same problem and Adobe technical support was unable to assist me. I have even checked with Borders technical support and Apple. . . .to no avail! So, I have gone back to using my PC to download books. . . but that is not the right solution. Anyone out there who can help?

The error message is confusing, because the wrong message is being displayed (it should say just device, instead of device type). The book you purchased from primisonline had additional restrictions placed on it by primisonline to limit viewing on a single computer. You will not be able to transfer this book to different computers. There is no workaround.
You should be able to confirm this by, on the computer you can view this, bringing up the "Item Info" dialog. In the permission section you should see "only on this device" next to "Display".
Expanding on Jim's comments: for EPUB type books, the publisher decides how
many copies you can have or share, and whether or not you can copy or print
it. If you use ADE in Library view, you will notice an arrow (drop down
box) in the upper left hand corner of the book's avatar. If you click on
it, you will see a tab labelled 'Item Info'. When you click on this tab, it
will show you the location of the ebook on your computer and the publisher's
permissions. It's useful information if you have any thoughts of
transferring an ebook or trying to print some portion of it.
Hope this helps!
