What happens if you attempt to read an E-Pub book on multiple devices?

If you attempt to read an e-pub book on multiple devices you will receive this message: "E_LIC_ALREADY_FULFILLED_BY_ANOTHER_USER." Users get this error if they are attempting to read their ePub book on multiple devices. If each device has a different ID, you will need to un-authorize and authorize them so they all match. It is easiest to un-authorize Adobe Digital Editions on your computer. To do this:

  • Press and hold Control-Shift-D
  • Select Erase Authorization
    • Note that if you activate Adobe Digital Editions with an Adobe ID which has already been used to activate Adobe Digital Editions on another computer, any DRM-protected Adobe eBooks downloaded before activating with the Adobe ID will no longer work.
    • If the subsequent download of an Adobe eBook is attempted on a computer that has been activated using a different Adobe ID, DRM restrictions will make the title incompatible with the second computer.

Please email the library if you have any other questions.
