How to delete "unnamed" books??

I have several books with the file name URLlink.acsm in my downloads file.  How do I know which books these are???  And if I go to delete one, will I end up deleting them all???

Re: How to delete "unnamed" books??

Those are the links to the books that Overdrive uses and Kobo uses.  They aren't the books themselves.  When you download a library book from Overdrive or a book from Kobo, it downloads a .acsm file to your computer.  Double clicking on that small file opens Adobe Digital Editions, which, based on the information in the file, goes to the server and downloads the book into ADE.  It shouldn't hurt to delete them since they aren't the actual book, as long as you've already downloaded the book. You should be able double click on the file and it should open ADE but it will download a 2nd copy that if you already downloaded, but it would tell what book the link is for.

Thank you so much!  When I looked and saw all those "books" with the same file name, I freaked thinking I would have to keep them permanently.
