Keep in mind that what you four are doing is exactly the kind of activity
that the Digital Millenium Copyright Act was passed to prevent. Digital
rights to ebooks are set up by publishers and distributors (KOBO included)
to make sure that those ebooks aren't copied and distributed, and the
ebooks you've downloaded may have settings that will prevent you from
downloading the ebook. Before you start screaming about the 'right to
share property', remember that the digital world is not like the paper
ADE is not set up to handle this situation. Trying to trick it into doing
so results in problems associated by its limits on the number of devices it
supports. You can try going back to your original email ID and see if
anything changes to confirm that this is the issue. Then, you 'may' be
able to download the same ebooks to your account.
You may be able to copy the ebook to another device by using the computer's
utility programs (not the ereader's) and then import the ebook into your
ereader. That depends also on the digital rights settings.
Thanks for responding. It was not our intention to break any copyright laws. We read that you can authorize ADE on up to 6 computers; I guess we misinterpreted that as being able to have a shared library.
Regardless, I cannot unauthorize ADE; I try to and nothing happens. I can't do anything with it. Do I need to uninstall it and reinstall it to get it authorized on my computer with my account?
And if I do need to uninstall it, how do I? I've been a PC user for 25 years (yes, I'm antiquated); this is my first mac.
The instructions I found are:From your user directory, locate /Library/Preferences/Macromedia/Flash Player/www.macromedia.com/bin/open.
Drag the digitaleditions1x5 folder to the Trash, and empty the Trash.
However, I can't find a Macromedia folder anywhere; not under user directory nor system.
