ADE's website is vague when it shows support for the Galaxy Tab, so we don't
really know whether the 10.1 is supported or not.
If your Adobe ID and PW work on Adobe's website, but not on Aldiko, I'd bet
that you typed something differently - an extra letter from 'fat fingers' or
something like that - when you created your login for Aldiko. Happens all
the time, and I'm not sure what Aldiko will let you do. Normally, there's
some way to change your login ID or password without creating a brand new
one - which will cause problems with Adobe when you try to connect. The
military have a phrase for this: catch-22....
Well, thanks for the reply, but that's not the issue. I have now downloaded and discarded 4 or 5
ebook readers. I have come to the conclusion that the Tab is not usable
with ADE. I get error messages in all the apps that I have tried when I attemp
to log in with my Adobe user name and password.
Trying my husband's Xoom next to see how that works.....
Mystery solved. Everything works perfectly on the Xoom, so the issue lies with the Tab. It can't be used to read library books. Works ok with books in the public domain that you can get from Kindle, but not epub or pdf books. BOO HISS
From my perpective, the Xoom should be on your list of supported devices. I did check the list yesterday when I was struggling with this, and saw the Tab is (maybe???) supported. BUT, ADE (at least in my case) DOES NOT work on Tab. It works perfectly on the Xoom. Today I downloaded an epub book from my local library, using Overdrive Media Console, signed into my Adobe account, bingo, there is the book.
So, Xoom 1, Tab 0.
Thanks for the replies, but so far nothing has worked. I am wasting my time trying to get this to work on Tab.
I too was unable to get my library books onto my Tab using ADE. What actually worked for me was getting the Overdrive application through the marketplace and using that with my library. I'm not sure if this will help you at all but it did the trick for me. My library does use Overdrive and I check the book out on my computer like I've always done, but then I open up the Overdrive application on my Tab, sign into my library account and download the book directly to the Tab. Not sure if it will work with every book, but it has for every one I've tried so far.
I had actually tried Overdrive, but when I went to sign into Adobe, Overdrive gave me an error message, and would not sign me in, nor download the library book. So, I went to my library website, under the digital media section, and looked for troubleshooting help. I found the exact same error message listed in the help section, which said that I needed to make sure my computer [device] had the correct date, time and time zone. Turns out, the date and time were correct on my Tab, but the time zone was not. I changed it (not really believing it would be that simple a fix), and it WORKED!!!
So simple stupid as my hubby would say.
Thanks very much!
The devil is in the details....
