ADE: How do I activate a supported eBook device using an Adobe ID?

To activate an eBook device using an Adobe ID…

  • Connect the eBook device to your computer.
  • Open Adobe Digital Editions.
  • Adobe Digital Editions launches and detects the eBook device. The 'Device Setup Assistant' dialog box is displayed.
  • Click 'Authorize Device'.
  • Adobe Digital Editions activates the eBook device. You can now transfer DRM-protected Adobe eBooks to the device.

Note that both Adobe Digital Editions and the eBook device must be activated with the same Adobe ID to transfer DRM-protected Adobe eBooks to the device.
