Was the first book you successfully downloaded a free book by any chance?
I know that the DRM limits on some free books is much looser  than on
purchased books.

I believe there is a limit to the number of devices of any particular kind
which you can register for Kindle , however I think this is relatively
generous and multiple registrations to each device is possible I think, .
This is counted however and this generally means that for purchased books
you need to be logged in under the name of the account you purchased the
book under a registered device.

The behaviour you are describing would be accounted for if Kindle thought
you were trying to access books you purchased under one account with another
email address.

Subject: [BCAB] Another Kindle app question

Hi, Although I have successfully downloaded and read one book on my Kindle
app. all the other books I have downloaded and try to read I get the same
error message. The message says to delete the book from my device and to
download from cloud, if the error continues to reregister my device. I
already have 2 Kindles registered so didn't have to register the app. The
only difference is the e-mail account which my Kindles are registered to is
different to the one I have on my Iphone. Could this be causing the problem
but if so why did one book successfully download. anysuggestions would be
gratefully accepted. susan Jones
