Transferring an eBook to an eReader device.

Make sure your eReader is authorised to the same Adobe ID that was used to download the eBook to your PC.

Before you can read DRM wrapped eBooks on your eReader using Adobe Digital Editions you must first authorise the reader. To do this simply:

  • Connect your eReader to your computer using your USB cable.
  • Open Adobe Digital Editions, which will then detect the eReader and open a device setup assistant dialog box.
  • Click ‘Authorise Device’
  • Adobe Digital Editions will authorise the eReader to allow DRM wrapped eBooks to be read.

It is very important to remember that any eReader device must be authorised with the same Adobe ID that was used to download the eBook to your PC.

Once the eReader device has been successfully authorised it will appear in Adobe Digital Editions ‘Bookshelves’ in the library view.

Using your library view, copy the eBook(s) to your Reader by dragging and dropping them from the 'Library view' onto the Reader icon in the left hand panel.

When you disconnect your eReader from your PC you will be able to read your transferred eBooks.
