Opening ACSM files

Did your computer fail to open an ACSM file? We explain what ACSM files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your ACSM files.

What is an ACSM file?

Files that contain the .acsm file extension are most commonly associated with the Adobe Digital Editions application that is distributed by Adobe. This software allows users to view and manage digital publications such as eBooks and digital magazines.

When eBooks and other digital publications are purchased online, the ACSM files are used to manage and download the digital content. These files contain information that is required to activate and download the eBook or other publication so that a user can read it on their computer or mobile reading device. The files ensure the copyright protection of the file in question.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
