What a wonderful, informative error message, eh? Maybe to a programmer, but
not to users like you and me.
What it's telling you is something concerning time and date from the library
where you were downloading ebooks.
I 'think' that means the ebook you were downloading had the wrong date and
time in its header. ADE uses the header to set the expiration date on a
library book. So, when ADE did the comparison so it could set the
expiration date into the future, it found that the date in the header was in
the past. This can happen when you're renewing an ebook, depending on the
software the library is using.
My suggestion is to contact the library and talk with one of their techies.
This error may stem from the library not resetting the header when the
ebook's date expired.
Hope this helps!
I thought that might be the problem when I first started troubleshooting, however, I get that error now, when I am trying to authorize the program, not when downloading content. at this point I cant even authorize my iPad.
I cleared an
Adobe Activation Request error :2004 (followed by some time references)
by setting the time in general setting on an iTouch to 24 hour mode.
This was suggested by an Overdrive technical support rep.
They were very helpful.
I own a NEXTBOOk2 and I can't authorise the devise, I have entered my adobe I.D.(Email address) and my password to no avail.
Adobe Digital Editions doesn't support the NEXTBOOK. HERE

Make sure time zone is correct. I had to update that on wifes tablet to get it to work. We had our time showing correct where we lived but for some reason they would not authorize with incorrect timezone.
I had the same error on my IPAD; deleted and reinstalled Overdrive app, but did not help, could no longer authorize. Saw a post about time incorrect and sure enough, IPAD was still set for Pacific time from previous vacation. Changed to correct local time, authorized Overdrive and was able to download books from 2 different libraries. Thanks to whomever posted the fix.
