Customer Question
What does Invalid Item...

What does Invalid Item mean. It said the item was protected with DRM and can not be read on my Fire. It then said to remove the item a=from my device an download it again or purchase a copy from the Kindle Store.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Kindle? What have you tried so far?

It just happened yesterday. I did remove the book, but when I tried to reorder it said I had already purchased it.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the E-reader Expert to know before I connect you?

No. I don't think so;
