I think that you have conflicting information. Ebooks will download into
ADE's library (or its reading pane), and they can be transferred to your
ereader from there in more than one way. What's not clear in your message
is whether you have been able to tie your ereader to ADE successfully at
all. Let me assume (you know that that means....) that you have not.
First, you need to set your ereader up with its source site. In doing so,
you will register it with them, and activate it for use. Normally, part of
this process asks you to set up a user ID and password. That user ID will
be transferred to your ereader, so that when you contact the site via wifi,
you can log in.
Once the ereader is activated, you can get ADE to recognize it. First, plug
in the ereader to your computer, and get it to recognize the ereader. A
Windows machine will show it as a removeable disk drive, and assign it a
letter. Then, start ADE. If everything is OK, ADE will show the ereader in
the left hand panel of its Library view, as the last line. If it does, then
you can drag and drop ebooks from the Library pane onto your ereader. When
you're finished doing ebook transfers, you can eject your ereader, using the
'Safely Remove Hardware' icon in the lower right hand portion of your
computer screen, on the Start bar. BE SURE you do this before you
disconnect your ereader from the computer, because it will close the correct
files and tell the ereader that it's done, so the ereader can do an update
for the new material.
If it doesn't work out this way, the most probable cause is that your
ereader isn't set up correctly, or that your user ID on the ereader isn't
recognized by ADE. If so, then write us back and we'll go through that
Hope this helps!
I am having the same trouble and now to add to that, my IRiver Story tells me that my Adobe Activation has failed. I only downloaded a book last week with no trouble.
The trouble with downloading to my PC is that the files download as ASCE files or PDF but I am unable to transfer them from the Library to my ereader.
It is so frustrating!
Sometimes it isn't possible to connect to the Book Store from the IRiver so I use the PC but it is becoming a problem.
