As a note, I did move my current ~/Documents/Digital Editions folder out of the way, and downloaded a new check-out, and it came in just fine. Then I tried to re-download the "troublesome" book. And I got this error message --
Franklin & Lucy:
No record for this loan is found on this machine, it may have been returned
Now, I had the book checked out. And then it expired, so I deleted the book. And I checked it out again, and every time I try to download, I get this error message. How do I convince ADE that it's never seen this checkout before?
Sarah, you might have to go to the Adobe Help site and look at the way that
control functions work. I'm betting that there's a record in a file
somewhere that could be deleted and you'd be on your way. ADE does keep
track of past library activity, so that's what I'd start to look for.
I looked around the Adobe Help site, but didn't find anything resembling "control functions".
I'd wager there's a file *somewhere* on this computer. But, short of grepping everything (ooh, I could probably do that later tonight) for the UUID identifying this checkout, it's really impossible to find...
Turned the error logging on, and it really seems like the error is happening in the communication at the overdrive server.
The user-facing website tells me that I have this book checked out for another 10 days. And the website that tells ADE whether my file is right is saying that the loan isn't on record.
So I'll stop fussing at ADE and wait for the library to fix its records. Or for the checkout to expire naturally and then, finally, be able to finish the last 100 pages of this 450 page book. *sigh*
