I'm in Australia and having the same problem with Overdrive ebooks from my country's libraries.
I have completed all those steps and nothing seems to work. Hi, I spent two hours trying to figure this out - and found that when I installed Adobe Digital Editions 3. Why don't Adobe just put some answers on their forum!!! Just have to wait 2 weeks and start again.
Good luck everyone. Since talking to Theodore at Support, there was a brief and tiny window when I was successful at uploading books to my Koboglo HD.
Alas, the window is closed again. A book that I have borrowed and CAN read on the computer hardly ideal is going to expire in 6 days. I was on hold for this book for several days. Perhaps it's a sign from ADE that I shouldn't read the book.
As far as I can tell, there has been no update from ADE to resolve this issue. I'm quite reluctant to revert back to 3. Please excuse me for replying to myself. The solution that finally worked for me is outlined by Maureen here:. Not able to open library books on my Kobo Glo: This document couldn't be opened". Just adding a note that I recently had this problem crop up with my Aura 2, and downgrading to ADE 3. I re-downloaded books I'd already fulfilled through ADE 4.
Please note that you don't have to downgrade to get kobo to work again. Maureen outlined how to fix it here:. With the following list, I am paraphrasing Maureen's excellent advice that finally released me from my anguish:.
I just bought a Kobo and couldn't get it to work with a library book and I was getting SO frustrated. I can now read the book I borrowed on my Kobo. Thanks you legend! Downgrading to Adobe Digital Editions 3.
Thanks so much for posting this solution! We are currently investigating the issue at our end with ADE 4. Also, I would like to share few points given below that you should verify at your end while working with ADE 4.
If the above mentioned steps doesn't work, try to perform the below steps and see if that helps-. I have had my Kobo Aura H20 since March I must say this whole ADE process has been a nightmare. Less than half the time the process worked.
I updated my Mac to latest OS and Chrome versions recommended months ago. My Mac computer will no longer install these as Certificate shows expired authorizations Feb Successful transferring to my reader still worked unpredictably.
I borrowed 2 books today at 3 am and transferred to ADE 4. I realize that these fixes cannot be guaranteed but I was desparate for a solution that actually worked. Sorry I am too frustrated to post a link.
Another user did post a reply just now and I have yet to respond but he has had same problem with ADE. Now at 7 pm the same day I tried another 2 library books. The same happened.
One success and one failure with identical process. I finally contacted KObo support again. She said she could reset my DRM auth for my KObo epub downloadd books but it was probably a library Overdrive, ADE issue but she had another call earilier with same problem and it seemed to work. After I got off the phone with her just now, I was able to successfully transfer 2 borrowed books and lo and behold the 2 books that my ebook would not open at 3 am will now open although the device still shows them as black rectangles and no expiry information???
Kobo is getting back to me in hours.
I can only take so much frustration before I crack up. This is not my first Kobo. This I now know as I resorted to reading all my library books on my iPad for months before I could resolve to try to use ADE process with my new Kobo ereader again. KObo is now aware of my frustration. THe whole transfer process is cumbersome and unreliable! Thank you! This worked for me after hours of trying to figure it out. I had done the steps explained, de-authorised both ADE and Kobo, removed and reloaded book, but hadn't tried with a NEW book from my library.
That seemed to kick the brain of everything back into order. I only had this problem after I upgraded to High Sierra on my Mac desktop, so whether this had anything to do with it is anyone's guess.
Hopefully, Adobe will fix the error. I wasn't able to download ADE 3.
Had to get rid of my new version of ADE and installed the earlier version, etc It seems to work with downloads from the public library - wish I had come up with your post sooner. Thank you!! This totally worked!! I am so happy I found your answer quite soon in the search so the problem was solved within minutes. I had all the same issues described in this blog, and I spent 2 days of agony to get my new Kobo Aura One e-reader to accept public library books. Adobe Digital Editions required to download public library books and then transfer them to my Kobo.
Couldn't get the Adobe account authorization to stick on the Kobo. Books downloaded appropriately to my computer and were visible in ADE. Computer was properly authorized, and I could read the books on my computer. Books appeared to transfer to the Kobe, but when disconnected from computer, the books were grayed out on the Kobe and wouldn't open with an error message saying the Kobe was not authorized to read said public library books.
I tried all the tricks suggested in this blog Reset the Kobe to factory settings Returned books to library and downloaded again and again. Tried new books from library.
