Use Calibre Plugins To DeDRM Kindle Ebooks For Use In IBooks




What do you think about this video?

Noelle Callaway: Great video. Very helpful except that I have a newer version of Calibre and I cannot find "Load Plug-in from file" button on "Get plugins to enhance Calibre" I have version 1.21. Any suggestions?

Tony Robertson: You just made my life a little easier. Thanks, Man.

Martin White: I installed everything, plugins and all but still nothing

HughWheelerDrums: Cannot find the plugins folder

William Wang: It does work for a book published in 2008.

witchdiva: Very clear. Will try later.

robNdina Liou: Thanks!...it finally worked (technically challenged :)...there was some Adware my antivirus detected while downloading...I do have a question though David.. When I use Calibre to convert books into PDF for instance, will I be able to change sizes and fonts? The writing is HUGE! Please tell me how I can change the size and spacing...thanks!

EagleFeatherUSA: Thanks this just what I needed!

Nikolay Sitkarev: cool. that worked for me

David Furphy: I prefer epub over pdf for books mainly because the text flow adjusts to the screen size of the device you are using and the font size you choose. You're not limited to viewing the original page layout as you are with a pdf. Of course, in some documents with complex page layouts this can be a problem in an epub and so you're better off with a pdf. But for books I definitely stick with a ebook format rather than a page based format to avoid the problems you're experiencing.

supaskunk1111: Hi thanks for the video! But i have a problem, i have followed your instructions to the word but still the AZW3 file wont unlock, or the DRM is still on. I keep getting the error : No key found in 4 keys tried. Any ideas?

David Furphy: I'd avoid converting to pdf and stick with epub. If you must have pdf, I'm guessing there might be better tools for epub->pdf. Beyond that I'm afraid I cant help much.

David Furphy: 1992ipodlover, Alf's toolkit does NOT work for iBooks DRM. He has a post on his blog with the heading "Apple and ebooks: iBookstore DRM and how to remove it"

TheNjoachim: Hi - I am trying to convert an azw file to epub. I followed all of the steps exactly as you presented them, but when I got to the "convert book" step, I got an error message that said "Cannot convert Lonely Planet Japan Travel Guide. This books is locked by DRM. To learn more about DRM and why you cannot read or convert this book in calibre, click here. A large number of recent, DRM free releases are available at Open Books." Any idea what I might've done wrong? I'm working on a MacBookPro

RawR Fest: YOU SIR... ARE FANTASTIC!

David Furphy: Could have been due to the extra coverage the issue is getting following reports of Amazon deleting someones kindle library. A story today on Lifehacker links to the Alf Apprentice blog.

wriggley05: Great video, I have been trying to get the books I have on my rubbish Sony reader into my Kindle and found Calibre but could not find the plugins in the right format (mac opens zip files automatically and Calibre needs them zipped). your video and link to apprentice Alf did the trick. I have a whole lot of expensive books I can start reading again. Many Thanks

David Furphy: I believe the PRC format is slightly different from AZW. This statement from apprenticealf's website may help If you have Mobipocket ebooks, where you either entered a PID on the retailer’s web site, or you must read them in Mobipocket Reader, you must enter the PID you entered on the retailer’s web site, or the PID of your installation of Mobipocket Reader into the PID customisation field of the K4MobiDeDRM plugin

David Furphy: This how-to vid is about converting to epub - not pdf. Jahstice, I think you'll need to search for a more relevant video or maybe even a software tool that fits your needs better than Calibre. Try Adobe Acrobat its only $400 ;)

Steingrímur Jón Guðjónsson: Thanks for the help! Very professional video

benjamin colin: hi, nice work! but it doesn't work for me.. i can't get to know why.. :(

hiro8128: Hi. This seems to work well. I tried this with a few book, but one of them won't work. Same error as benjamin colin is having.

Erika Carter: It worked perfectly. Thanks!!!

David Furphy: Thanks Hurschti97. I agree, a similar solution for iBooks would be great but Alf's tool set doesn't handle their DRM. For me that's a good reason to be buying on Amazon. If you find a good solution let us know.

b78pl: Did all as per instruction, but doesn't work for the book that is really important to me. When adding the error decoding comes up. The book was published in August 2011, is it possible that the DRM key is not recognised by the DeDRM plugin 04.5 ?? please help, thanks.

Daniel Silverberg: I've also followed all the steps and installed the plug-in, but have not been able to convert any of my kindle books to Epub. Get the same message as TheNjoachim about the DRM. Any ideas? Thanks!

shaniyyy: Thanks, I just did this now, worked perfectly!

tara94100: I follwed everything here and it seemed to work well. Removing the DRM and installing the plug in seemed to work well. However, when I went to add my book, the book I want is not there in my Kindle content. There are other books, but not the one I am trying to put on calibre. Any suggestions?

waywardbard: I am too.

Jahstice: i also have another question. Maybe you can help out with that as well. If I converted my file from epub to pdf or anythign else to pdf. how do I keep my direct links from the table of contents, to directly jump into the wanted topic? The table of content is underlined in the pdf, but i cannot click on this. any idea how or what to set during the conversion? Thanks again!

David Furphy: sorry to hear that benjamin. Let us know how far you got, someone might have some suggestions.

batterista: Great, but doesn't work. Can't handle the latest AZW encryption.

smartypantswastaken: Worked like a charm, even for this technically-challenged reader. :) Very helpful info/tutorial. Thanks!

nishantkumar19: I have the exact same problem. :(

silverbright75: I agree, It's probably not installed right. Macs can be tricky - like wriggley 05 stated "mac opens zip files automatically and Calibre needs them zipped". I'd make sure you have the most current version of the tools and follow the AA Blog's directions for installing on a Mac. You'll see it listed as "DeDRM Application for Mac OS X 10.4 and above" on the right in Posts.

Sebastian Niţu: Hey, Apprentice Alf's blog is down for a while now, where can I get the plugin? Please help!

silverbright75: Did you do this? From the AA Blog: "If you have Amazon Kindle ebooks that were downloaded to your eInk Kindle, you must enter your Kindle’s serial number into the Kindle serial number customization field of the K4MobiDeDRM plugin. (You can copy the serial number from your Amazon account page.) If you need to enter the serial numbers of more than one eInk Kindle, separate the serial numbers with commas." Are you using K4MobiDeDRM v04.10?

Sebastian Niţu: THANKS A LOT! Just used a VPN to connect to the site!

Jahstice: why do i want epub? all my books on ym computer i have as pdf files. I dont own a single epub file yet, and i dont even know how to open them. I like pdf's because I can read them individually without openeing another reading program.

MedievalMemory: You're terrific at explaining this material. :-)

David Furphy: Have you tried converting other azw books? If you have done so successfully and its just this particular book that's a problem then I guess there must be some extra DRM not present on most kindle books. If you are having problems with other books as well, it would seem the plugin has not installed properly. I suggest you check out Alf's pages for more details and remove and reinstall the plugins. Anyone else seen this problem?

MrsDAucoin: This was so incredibly helpful!! Thanks SO much!

David Furphy: Seems to be working for me. I added another link in the description. This is the post that includes links to the tools download

Canal Cristiano: Hi, after following all the steps, when I added the amazon eBook to Calibre I only got the format PRC and I can't convert it epub or mobi.. any suggestions would be very much appreciated.. Thanks

Hurschti97: Tanks for that awesome Video. But Is it also possible to Remove the iBook-DRM an Transfer it to the amazon-kindle? If yes, it would be great if you could make a Video about it. Happy New year!!!

Jahstice: hi man, i hope you can help me out. I did convert 2 books from their original format to pdf (azw & azw3). The pdf's however were horribly messed up. Having way over 1200 pages, and the total structre of every sentence and character size were differently. How can I fix this? I would like to have the pdf vewrsion equally (readable and structured) as the original form. Hope you can help me out

David Furphy: Thank you

threecanal: great...thanks

David Furphy: Hi battistimo, I'm interested in any more more details you have. When you say "the latest AZW encryption", how recent do you mean? Do you have any links or sources for when or how the encryption has changed and how widespread is its use? I have been successful with some recently purchased books. Does anyone else have insights on this?

David Furphy: pleased to hear it

DYAC: My friend's business did extremely well with adwords. He basically pay google to put his promotion ads on varies websites and the conversion rate is really high. I guess it helps since he sells gag/prank gifts and his ads get display on funny autocorrect websites. He wouldn't tell me the exact amount, but I'm estimating it is near the mid 6-figure salary. No risk no rewards I guess.
