Hi!

I'm trying to upload Overdrive library books to my Nook device using ADE.  I authorized ADE on my computer so it lets me transfer the books to my Nook, but then when I try to open the book on the device it says "User Not Activated."  How do I fix this?

UPDATE: problem solved using the following instructionsOverDrive | What to do if there is a "User Not ... HOWEVER, if, like me, you have a Mac and the /.adobe-digital-editions does NOT appear, hit Command+Shift+Period, and your "hidden files" should appear.  The folder should show up and you can delete it.  I would recommend re-hitting Command+Shift+Period when you're done to re-hide the hidden files so you don't mess with anything too important on accident.

I just got a new laptop and I'm having the same problem with ADE and my Nook.  I've already tried deleting Digital Editions and reconnecting the Nook.  Now I have two versions of the same eBook and both give me the error dialog: user not activated.  I don't know what to do!
