How to open DRM protected PDF files when you copy or transfer PDF to other device? If you break DRM protection on PDF files in unreasonable way, it will be a thorny issue. This tutorial will introduce an effective and practical solution to remove DRM from PDF (ACSM) with All DRM Removal.
Authorize Adobe Digital Editions with Adobe ID
If you install Adobe Digital Editions 3.0 and open it for the first time, it will remind you to input your login information for Adobe ID. Adobe’s DRM works by associating each ebook with your Adobe ID. Make sure DRM PDF files can be read on ADE for windows/mac. Create an Adobe ID here.
If you want to deauthorize your computer, just press “CTRL”+ ”SHIFT” + “D” key at the same time. And click “Erase Authorization” button in the bottom of pop-up window. Restarting Adobe Editions will ask you to reauthorize your computer. Selecting the menu “help” > “Authorize Computer” and login it again.
If you download PDF eBooks before authorizing your computer or device, or the book was downloaded with a different Adobe ID, you won't be able to read this book. The error is related to Adobe’s DRM below. To fix the error “E_LIC_ALREADY_FULFILLED_BY_ANOTHER_USER”, go forward to Adobe Digital Editions Discussion.
