The most common problem we see after installing and authorizing Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) is that clicking on the link to your eBook does not open it in ADE, usually because of the many different ways computers are configured.

Here, for Windows and Mac, is the procedure for getting your eBook opened quickly.

 

  • WINDOWS:

    On your Sagamore My Account eBooks page, right-click the link to your eBook and select 'Save Link as...' and save the URLLink.acsm file in your Downloads folder.

    Open Adobe Digital Editions.

    At top left, click the 'Library' button.

    Click the ‘File’ menu – then select the first option: ‘Add to library.’

    In the window that opens, make sure your Downloads folder is selected in the left column.

    Then, at the bottom right of that window, above the ‘Open’ button, make sure the dropdown has ‘Adobe Content Server Message’ selected.

    In the main window, select a file that’s named ‘URLLink.acsm.’ (it might have a number in parentheses in the filename)

    Click the ‘Open’ button. Your eBook should then open.

  • MAC:

    On your Sagamore My Account eBooks page, right-click the link to your eBook and select 'Download Linked File as...' and save the URLLink.acsm file in your Downloads folder.

    Open Adobe Digital Editions.

    From the 'File' menu, select 'Add to Library.'

    Navigate to your Downloads folder and then select 'ACSM files' from the 'Show' dropdown. (You may need to click the 'Options' button to display the 'Show' dropdown.)

    In the Downloads window, select a file that’s named ‘URLLink.acsm.’ (it might have a number in parentheses in the filename)

    Click the ‘Add’ button. Your eBook should then open.
