Viewing Authorized Devices

The Reader Store says that I have 3 authorized computers. One's got a friendly name but the other two say "Description: Reader Library 1" and "Description: Reader Library 5". I'd like to determine what those devices are so that I can de-authorize one of them.

Anyone know of a way that I can determine what these devices are?

1. If you are able to de-authorize a computer, that is the computer you are currently logged in with. Rename it to a meaningful name. i.e. Desktop.

2. If you have another computer, log in with the other computer. There will only be a de-authorize option for the computer you are currently logged in with. Rename it to a meaningful name. i.e. Laptop

3. Repeat step 2 for any other computers.

If you have any computers left over without meaningful names, rename it/them to "Please delete 1", "Please delete 2", etc. and contact customer service and ask them to un-authorize the computer(s) named "Please delete 1", "Please delete 2", etc.

I had to do something similar when I returned a defective netbook that I forgot to de-authorize before I returned it.

From the Manage Devices screen.

To add or de-authorize a computer, you must first log in to that computer.

Can't access that computer anymore? Contact Customer Service.

Hoping there'd be a quicker/ easier way though.
