What is Adobe Digital Editions?
With Adobe Digital Editions, you can open the eBook on your computer and transfer it to other reading devices.
At present Adobe Digital Editions supports more than 50 eReaders, including Sony Readers, Nook, Kobo and Kindle Fire.
As eBook technology is constantly changing, we strongly recommend that you check with the manufacturer to see if your device is compatible before buying an eBook from Hammersmith Books.
How do I install Adobe Digital Editions?
To install Adobe Digital Editions go to http://www.adobe.com/products/digitaleditions/ and click on ‘Download Now’ then select the correct download for you, depending on whether you are using a Windows or Mac machine.
After installation, you’ll be asked to authorise Adobe Digital Editions. During authorisation, you’ll have the option to create an Adobe User ID. An Adobe ID enables you to transfer DRM-protected eBooks between multiple reading devices and restore them after a data loss or system reinstallation. If you don’t create an Adobe ID, the software will still download but you will not be able to download any eBooks until the User ID is created. If you are asked for an ‘Ebook Vendor’ when authorising, please select ‘Adobe ID’ from the drop-down list.
