I'm getting the same kind of error as dieterpops. Here's what's happening:
* I checked out book "A" about a week ago. It has 6 days left before expiration. I successfully transferred it to BFR via iTunes, but the cover was blank with a circle and line through it. When I tried to open it, I got: "This loaned item can no longer be accessed." However, it opens fine in ADE and has 6 days left before it expires.
* I then tried checking out some new books ("B," "C" and "D"). These all transferred fine and opened no problem.
* I then returned book "A" and checked it out again. Now it has 14 days before it expires. It's all fresh and new. I transferred it to BFR, but again I get the blank cover with circle and line through it and the error message: "This loaned item can no longer be accessed." And yet, it's newly checked out with 14 days left and opens fine in ADE.
* I then decided to return book "B" and try checking it out again. This time, I get the blank cover with circle and line through it and "This loaned item can no longer be accessed."
So there's definitely something wonky with the authorizations if you're trying to transfer a book that's been checked out for a while, even if it hasn't expired yet. And it looks like once you return a book you can never check it out again, which is kind of a bummer since my library only loans for 14 days, and if I can't finish a book in time and want to check it out again, I can't."
I have had the same problems with a couple of my Sony Readers in the past while trying to re-check out a Overdrive eBook when I had many days left before expiration. I almost think it is the problem of Adobe Digital Editions. Very annoying when it happens.
Have you tried the method listed where you bypass ADE completely with your downloaded Overdrive Library acsm file and e-mail the file to your iPad/Phone/Touch and then open with Bluefire? It still will have the same expiration date on the BFR. I am looking forward to trying out the Overdrive eBooks to see if they will stay checked out on the reader until actually closed like they do on my nook. That would allow me to finish a book in case I get busy doing something else.
