Adobe Digital Additions "Authorization"

Folks,

 

By reading other older posts, I found out that my small-town library belongs to the Oregon Digital Library allowing me to download books using ADE.  Here is my question...

 

When I downloaded ADE and registered, (which I am cautious about anyway, I hate DRM software) it "located" the books I have purchased from B&N and Smashwords and backed up to a file.  It told me that it was going to "Authorize" my files.

 

I once a long time ago ripped a CD that I purchased that had Sony's DRM hidden in it and it screwed up my music files.  Did ADE just cause me issues with my books that it found on my hard-drive as well?  Have any of you had problems with this program?

 

Thanks for your help as always,

Tony

Welcome, Tony! :smileyvery-happy:
No, your eBooks should be ok.  I always download eBooks into other folders and then "find" them using ADE, and ADE has never screwed any of them up.

I appreciate the confirmation.  Your experience with it will help me relax and take advantage of it.  Black helicopters and all that you know!  :smileywink:
