I am the proud, and happy, owner of a reMarkable tablet. Wanting to try out it's eBook feature, I bought an eBook (epub), but ADE doesn't recognize my reMarkable, I've been able to load the eBook from the finder into the reMarkable app, but when I open the file the pages are all white in the app on my Mac, and the eBook won't even open on the tablet.
reMarkable have announced that for the time being DRMs are not supported, but I don't know if the eBook I bought has a DRM, is there a way to know? Is that the problem?
How do I (we, reMarkable users) ask Adobe to make the reMarbale tablet and/or app recognizable and compatible with ADE?
Does Adobe's DRM work?
ADE does not recognize my remarkable ereader.
Computer is autorised, ereader connected, does not show up in the ADE.
Well Im NOT the proud and happy owner of a REMarkable Tablet! I had such high hopes for it when I spent far too much money on it and so far have not been able to do anything on it!
I cant upload ANY ebooks at all! The Adobe Digital Editions works but again NOT with the RM. There is absolutely nothing ReMarkable about it at all!
If you are a student that likes to take notes or perhaps write on pdfs and other papers, then perhaps you will get some use out of it - or you draw.... other than that there is nothing else that other tablets cant do and more.
I asked them to give me my money back and of course they would not, made every excuse under the sun. Im just waiting and hoping that the people that build this archaic monstrosity actually catch up with real technology! Then perhaps Ill find some use for it. In the meantime it stays in the box ..... unless someone wants to buy it from me?????
truth, I just verified, ADE and the RE:Markable are still not a thing... which is so sad. The capability to annotate directly on an epaper page is a vastly superior reading and writing experience when campared to glossy color displays. I'll ping RE:Markable and see what the hold up is. Adobe, do you have insight? Does your DRM prohibit annotation and screenshot? Is it a battery/processor thing?
Calibre works for managing epubs without the schmancy shackles of DRM. And personally I prefer PDF's in the same pagelayout as the print edition, like I get with academic journals, as the page refrences are the same as the original published document. This makes for more coherent citation and shared refrencing in my experience. Looking forward to being able to just carry my RE:Markable and not multiple epaper readers...
Next connect your remarkable to your PC and use the remarkable app to cooy the Epubs to your remarkable device. The ePub is yours so this not illegal.
Even if I hope you've found a way to do it (before now I mean), I've found a quick fix today, regarding an epub I bought and needed to be opened through ADE. I hope it'll help people in the future too!
Just go on ADE, click right on the epub and select "Show file in Explorer" (or in Finder on mac). Then, you just have to drag and drop the file to your Remarkable Desktop App and Tadaah!
