Are you using the latest version of Reader? Does your device have the latest firmware installed?

It sounds like you haven't authorised your reader.

First check your reader. Turn it on and go to setting, then click on 'about'. In the section labelled device information it should say 'this device is authorised for reading Adobe DRM content. If it doesn't then that's the problem.

To authorise it you need to do that in ADE.

You need to do this when you're in ADE
I think Blackadder has put their finger on your problem.

Of course, the alternative solution (which I recommend) is to google for Apprentice Alf's blog, and use the tools from there to remove the DRM as soon as you've bought a book. That way authorisation problems won't trouble you again, and you can move your books between your devices without any fiddling. It also means that you'll be able to convert your books to different formats in the future.
