If you’ve tried moving an eBook you bought on Amazon that was protected with DRM to your palm device and have been successful skip this post. However, if you’ve tried your hands at if and failed (becuase you were as confused as me) read on.


Trying to the use the Acrobat Reader for Palm OS (that works for all of my other PDFs) kept throwing the following error - "This document has not been encrypted using stand security handler and therefore could not be opened"


A Few minutes on Google brought me to This Thread.


Just for the Sake of Redundancy, I Quote –


“To send your DRM protected e-Books on your Palm device you need to use your desktop Adobe Reader (version 7.0 or later). For which you need to:


Activate your Palm device from your desktop reader's File --> Digital Editions --> Authorize devices. Go to File -->Digital Editions --> My Digital Editions

Click on the book you need to send to your Palm device (add it if it doesn't show there by the "Add File" button), and click 'Send to Mobile Device'.

Then your eBook is prepared and sent to your List of files to be transferred in Hotsync manager.”


I just wished Amazon / ADOBE had provided clear instructions for this. When a person buys an eBook in all probabilities he wants to read it on his PDA! It is frustrating go to Google and waste an hour after spending money on the book and then not being able to carry it around!
