Transfer your file under DRM to another computer
To be able to view your file on other devices, you must authorise each of these devices by repeating
the procedure above (note that you can only authorise one computer only for each Adobe ID account).
If you want to read your DRM protected file on another computer, you first need to install Adobe
Digital Editions on this computer. During installation, you can enter your login and your Adobe ID
password to authorise the computer.
Once the computer allows it, you can read your file (that you have previously transferred by mail or via
a USB stick) simply by double-clicking on it.
Transfer your file with DRM to a mobile device
(reader, tablet, etc.)
No mobile devices will permit you to read files protected by DRM.
The first thing to do is therefore ensure that the software Adobe Digital Editions is compatible with your
device. To do this, see the list which is located at this address:
Start by installing the driver to use your reader on your computer
Connect your reader to your computer. Adobe Digital Editions will automatically detect it: the icon for
your reader appears in your list of libraries (left column).
You have to
authorise your reader.
Once you have authorised your reader by using your Adobe ID
account you will not have to do this again for subsequent file transfers.
Then in the right column select the title that you want to transfer and drag the slider to the icon for
your reader. The transfer is complete!
