I just downloaded two books from Google Play Books. I cannot transfer them to my Nook.
When I try to open the ASCM file in Adobe Digital Editions, it says:
Unable to download
Error getting License. License Server Communication Problem:
Thanks for messing up my evening, whoever is responsible for this.
I even downloaded Adobe Digital Editions for my Android, my Desktop and Android are both authorized using the same Apple ID, the new 'How to get started' ebook from downloading the app appeared in both my Desktop library and my Android library, but the ebooks that are on the desktop library have not appeared on the Android. I definitely have the authorization correct, but it's not working both-ways.
There also doesn't seem to be any way to open the ebook I purchased from the Google Play Store within the Adobe Digital Editions android app. So, for my needs, the app is totally useless (no books from my library, and no books from my device). I just don't get it, what's the app for? So even if I did get the synchronization to work both ways, I still will not be able to achieve my goal of purchasing an ebook from Google Play Books and reading it on a device with a decent battery life.
Necessary rant: Yep, so, Google should stop using Adobe for DRM and roll their own, it would be a lot better. I probably would be able to manage my library online and not with some 32-bit Windows application when I'm a Linux user.
The EPUBs on the server of your deliverer are currupt. Has you download the files a twiche? If this not work should contact the reselller of the file (Google) and ask if can check his links for the eBooks.
I downloaded the ACSM file several times
I read the file, it's not corrupt in the transport sense, but it is possibly using an out of date format... I purchased the same book from Kobo instead, and their ACSM file was nearly twice the size, it contained a few extra fields. Kobo's ACSM file worked.
... hehe, but I still don't like Adobe Digital Editions, as a hoop, for the user to jump through. I don't understand why it's a desktop download, and there's no online offering, I mean, the generated epub is still locked to my authorised devices, unless I'm misunderstanding how everything is related. <- and/or Linux support, too. ADE is the sole item of software I use my Windows XP partition for (I moved to Linux when XP went out of support).
The mobile app still doesn't have any of my titles, and there's no way to add or open titles in it, so that wasn't anything worth keeping.
Has you ask the reseller for the eBook to check the download?
I mentioned this to Google when I requested a refund. I'm not sure they did anything to fix it, they just issued the refund.
Have just had the same problem with ebooks from epagine. The links were corrupt and they have sent me new links.
Clearly better service than Google !
I was on the verge of requesting a refund, too, except my gf really wanted this book and I couldn't find it anywhere else that was accessible from South Africa.
