Either your Reader is not Authorized to the same AdobeID as your reader, or the content was licensed to dissallow reading on readers or on any device but your computer.
Checking the Item Info permissions section in ADE will tell you if it is restricted.
Thank you Jim. I have checked the item information in ADE for the books downloaded. The information said the books are allowed on any devices. I have tried reauthorized and authorized my Reader with no success in opening these books.
I have also tried deleting the ADE in my Reader then re-transferring the books and it didn’t work.
What are the steps to to authorize my Reader to the same AdobeID as my reader? Should I uninstalled my ADE and re-install is again and reauthorize my Reader?
I may have missed it, but what ereader are you using?
My ereader is Miroad E7001 which supports TXT, EPUB, FB2, HTML, PDB and PDF format text. I have no issue with when transferring the books from ADE on my Computer to the reader, only when I tried to open the books in the reader that it failed to open.
From the ADE website in the sample Library I've downloaded two books for testing. They are:
The Geography of Bliss: One Grump's Search for The Happiest Place in the World (Chapter 1) Twelve.
EPUB ebook - English 196kb - I could open this one in my Reader after transferring from my computer.
Hot (Chapter 1). Forever
EPUB ebook - English 200kb - I could transfer this one successfully to my Reader but the file failed to open.
The difference between these two in the properties is that The Geography has an option to 'unblock' and Hot doesn't.
Could this be the reason?
The Miroad E7001 won't work with DRM protected ePubs or PDFs (most of what you will buy or anything you get from a library), and isn't supported by ADE.
In fact from what I've heard ( http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=125931 ), it's not a very good device, however you may be having better luck.
I would suggest looking at sources of unprotected content such as feedbooks.com.
The information is very helpful. Thanks you all for participating in this discussion.
As I said to your other posts:
DRM is the implementation of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act of 2000.
It's the law. If you try to remove DRM protection from an epublication,
you will be violating the law, and there are some pretty stiff penalties
including jail time if you're caught. More to the point, your ethics are
screwed up if you think that you can break the law just because of some
technical consideration or because you think that DRM should not apply to
