What to do if there is a "User Not Activated" or "Loan token not found" error when trying to read an eBook on a NOOK

Print

This error is typically caused when the NOOK has not been authorized properly. To solve the issue, you need to reset the Adobe credentials on your NOOK.

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

Note: With the NOOK Tablet, Color, HD and HD+ you can install OverDrive's mobile app to download titles directly.

What you need

Get your Adobe IDs to match using Windows

  1. Make sure your computer is properly authorized.
    In ADE, go to Help > Authorization Information . . .
