HELP! MY COMPUTER DOESN’T RECOGNIZE ".ACSM" FILES

Wessex PDF E-Books come in ".acsm" format. If you have downloaded Adobe Digital Editions correctly, and authorized your computer, the .acsm file should automatically open in Adobe Digital Editions.

If you get the error message 'Adobe Reader could not open 'URLLink.acsm' because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged." Follow the instructions below.

To fix this follow the instructions below:

WINDOWS:

Step 1
Open Adobe Digital Editions and in the menu bar, go to File->Add to Library.

Step 2
In the bottom right hand corner, change Ebooks (*.epub,*.pdf) to Adobe Content Server Message(*.acsm).

Step 3
Navigate to the location where you downloaded the 'URLLink.acsm' file and double click on 'URLLink.acsm'.

MAC:

Step 1
Open Adobe Digital Editions and in the menu bar, go to File->Add to Library.

Step 2
In the bottom, change Show: 'PDF/EPUB files' to 'ACSM files'.

Step 3

Common Troubleshooting:

Your PDF E-Book download will usually be in the "Downloads" folder in your computer.

If your computer does not recognize the .acsm extension, find the download in the Downloads folder, right-click the file, choose "open with" and find the Adobe Digital Editions program. Make sure that you select "Always open this type of file with this program".
