Problem authorizing my computer so I can access public library EPUB books

Unfortunately I have to use Digital Editions to access EPUB books with my public library, and Digital Editions will NOT allow me to authorize my MAC so I can access on Overdrive books.  Here's the error message I keep getting:  

"You can only authorize this computer with an Adobe ID that hasn't been previously used to authorize any other computer or mobile devices".  

This make no sense to me, since I don't have any other Adobe ID's.  I tried to get a NEW Adobe ID to use on my MAC, but was told I can't get one.  

Can you please help me straighten out this mess with a step by step list of what I need to do?  This program is very frustrating and not user friendly AT ALL.  I'm very disappointed that Adobe Digital Editions is so hard to authorize and use.

Hello all!

I received these instructions from someone on how to fix my authorization issue with Adobe Digital Editions, and I was successfully able to move my library book download on EPUB to my KOBO (after I updated my KOBO).  Here is is!  Hope this helps others out there.  I really think ADOBE needs to look into the issues with their ADE software, and I suggested it to the person who helped me below.
