How to Convert ACSM to EPUB

Sometimes when you download a purchased eBook, what you get is an ACSM file instead of the most popular eBook format – EPUB.

ACSM is not an eBook format. It is simply a link to the eBook which must be opened with Adobe’s free software – Adobe Digital Editions (ADE).

How to Open an ACSM file with ADE? To sum up - download, install and launch ADE, and you'll then be prompted to input your Adobe ID and password to authorize your current computer. Finally, find your ACSM file and open it with ADE. Below are the detailed steps for your reference:

Step 1. Install Adobe Digital Editions

Click here to download and install ADE to your computer.

Step 2. Authorize ADE with your Adobe ID

Launch ADE, go to "Help"->"Authorize computer" and input your Adobe ID and password to authorize the current computer. If you don’t have an Adobe ID yet, simply click “Create an Adobe ID” and follow the steps to create one.

Step 3. Open ACSM File with ADE

Now find your ACSM file and right-click the file, select “Open with > Adobe Digital Editions”. Once the ACSM file is opened, ADE would automatically download it as an EPUB or PDF file. And you can find the file under C:\Users\User Name\Documents\My Digital Editions\.

However, sometimes you may expect an EPUB file while what you download from ADE is a PDF file instead. Besides, the books you download from ACSM files can only be read with the same Adobe Account. If you plan to read these books on other devices, you’ll have to remove your Adobe Account in the former computer.

Therefore, you need another eBook converting tool to accurately convert it to EPUB format and get rid of that kind of limitation.
