How to authorize a supported eBook reader with an Adobe ID

Print

This article will help you authorize compatible devices like the Sony Reader, NOOK, and more with an Adobe ID so that you can read downloaded DRM-protected eBooks.

To transfer eBooks to an eBook reader, both the computer and device must be authorized with the same Adobe ID.

Note: These instructions are for ADE 2.0 or newer. We recommend always using the latest version of ADE.

What you need

Authorizing your eBook reader

  1. Connect your eBook reader to the computer.
  2. Open Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) on your computer. You should see your eBook reader under "Devices."
    If your eBook reader is missing, make sure it is plugged in, then restart ADE.
