Question User not activated

I posted too soon on a different thread.

Using Abobe Digital, I dragged a book into my Nook.

Now, when I try to read it using my Nook I get the "User not activated" window.

How do I activate?

When you first opened Adobe Digital Editions and plugged in your NOOK, did it prompt you to authorize your device?

Try deleting the Digital Editions folder on the NOOK. Then open Adobe Digital Editions and plug up the device. It should prompt you to authorize it. You'll have to drag your books onto it again after the authorization.

I have two different folders:

.adobe-digital-editions with one file called device and

Digital Editions with all kinds of files

Did you mean for me to delete the secord folder?




I'm an idiot, so thanks for trying to help me.

Start by deleting the Digital Editions folder. If it doesn't prompt you to authorize the device, then delete the other one as well.

The Adobe Digital Editions file is the one that has the registration information that is the one you need to delete. This usually becomes corrupted if you do not eject your Nook properly from your computer.
