    Couldn't write the application to the hard disk


      I'm can't download Digital Editions, I get this error message:


      "Couldn't write the application to the hard disk. Please verify the hard disk is available and try again"


      I have Windows 7


      Any ideas? I'm not a computer whiz so I'm becomming increasingly frustrated with not being able to simply download this software. Any help is greatly appreciated.

          The message you're getting has nothing to do with Digital Editions.  It's

          from your computer and it is telling you that there's a problem writing

          files to your hard disk.  Other folks have no problems installing Digital

          Editions, so there's something different about your computer or the

          settings you have in either Windows 7 or the way your user account is set



          You need to talk with someone at Microsoft - or an independent group like

          The Geek Squad and see if they can help you with your computer problem.

          There's not much we can do via posts to the Digital Editions forum.
