Question Can't load unprotected PDF files on PRS-300

I just bought a PRS-300 and successfully loade a bunch of public domain ePUB books onto it using the Sony "Reader Library" software (running under Windows 7).
When I try to load PDF files however, I am getting the error message "there is no license to view on this device or it is authorized to another user", even though all of the content I am trying to load is unprotected (no DRM)! When I first tried to load unprotected PDFs on my PRS-300, I was prompted to register with Adobe. After doing so, the eReader Library still refuses to load the PDFs onto the PRS-300, displaying the error message in the original post. How can I get rid of it?

Are they PDF's you created or did you purchase them somewhere? Are they possibly password protected?

Non-DRM PDF's should be read without having to authorize.

They are mostly unprotected PDFs from my employer, but a few I created myself. None are password protected. It now seems as though at least some, if not all of the PDFs were loaded, despite the error message. What is the significance of the error message?

Your ADE (Adobe Digital Editions) log in and password needs to be the exact same ones as the Sony Library to read the DRM protected files. Also, your computer and Sony 300 need to be registered/authorized through ADE and the Sony Library.

You can check MR's (MobileRead) Wiki (at the top of this page on the left side) for additional information about ADE and ascm files (DRM protected files).
