Overdrive/Library/DRM problem

I'm not sure whether this should go in this forum, or in Calibre, or ePub, or even perhaps General Discussion, so please bear with me and with the length of the post.

The background:
- I've had Adobe Digital Editions on my computer for at least 18 months, and have used it on three different ebook readers; the Sony 650 has been my ebook reader of choice for several months now.
- I use Calibre to transfer downloaded ebooks to the Sony.
- I almost always cleanse ebooks from DRM defilement before uploading to the device.
- The State Library of Tasmania has recently started offering ebook for loan, and I've just downloaded my first two choices.

I downloaded through the ADE I already have on my computer and can open and read the ebooks on my computer. But when I transferred them to the Sony with Calibre I got a message with both books that they are DRM protected, and of course they would not open.

Why is this happening? Am I doing something wrong? How can I get to read the books I borrowed?

Regards, Alex

I had this happen to me with my pocketbook and learned that you have to let adobe load the library books on to the reader. You cannot open them if calibre transfers them. I thought this interesting since i did not have this issue with our purchased books that had adobe drm. There is something different with library books though.

As an alternative, you can also transfer the books after opening them in the Sony Library.

The something different is they're library downloads... this involves overdrive which involves time tracking the book... you loan is only valid for a limited time (or until you reconnect your eReader if you've passed the time limit)... normal purchases are just DRM protected with no time limits... and no overdrive...

Thanks to you all. I'll think about the ideas you've given me.
