My internet connection is slow and sometimes disconnects. Is this a problem?
No. Disconnects are handled automatically and loading the missing data is tried again once a connection is re-established.

What does the “Copy to Device” option do?
This feature allows you to download a full copy of the content to your device's internal storage. This will allow you to access the full content in the event that you lose internet connection.
What if I am asked to de-authorize my PC or device while accessing content on another device?
You are only authorized to view the content on up to a certain number of devices depending on the license you purchased. In the event that you exceed that limitation, you will be required to de-authorize the license on a previous device in order to access it on another.
Why am I receiving an error message stating I am locked out from accessing content on my PC/device for a number of hours?
In the event there are too many attempts to authorize/de-authorize devices in a short time period, the system will temporarily lock out content access for a certain time period. This is a measure to prevent un-authorized access to licensed content. Once the time period has passed, regular access can be attempted again.
