I download an eBook, which came in the form of an ACSM file. I then discovered it’s a link and not an actual eBook file. How can I get the eBook?  Do I have to convert ACSM to ePub or PDF to read ACSM on Android, Kobo, etc?

    ACSM (Adobe Content Server Message File) files are purchase tickets, contain a unique activation ID.
    you need to install adobe digital edition
    to get your ebook double click in your acsm file, then ADE will download the real ePub book. The e-book file will be stored in the folder “My Digital Editions”.
    The ebookin adobe digital edition, is most likely is a PDF document or epub, i think you cannot view them outside Adobe Digital Edition.
    Adobe Digital Editions supports printing (unless disallowed by the document itself). However, vector printing is not supported — instead, pages are printed as bitmaps, so the quality is not as sharp as if it were vectors. Also, for documents that contain SWF movie clips, only the initial frame of the movie prints, and it does not reflect any interactive changes you made in the movie clip inside Adobe Digital Editions.

    even you open it in Adobe PDF reader the security will not let you to print it, but you can take screenshots and depending the ebook, can be MANY SCREENSHOTS!
