Dealspot Houston: Hey David im having problems. When I import the Kindle file into Calibre it
just says working but it never actually imports. Do you know what might be
the problems? Ill be refreshing the page waiting for your response. Thanks
Jake Henry: I'm not able to download the file from alf's site. The link on his page
sends me to a page where a server times out from not responding. How do I
get the plugin???
007007fred: Thank you very much for the great tutorial it was very helpful finally
somebody put a review on YouTube which had a knowledge of electronic and
Raphael Chacon: Thanks David you are a life saver I had no problems with the DRM
714JayPP: Thank you for your time to do this! I had a few problems that I was able
to resolve and hope to share them so they will help other. my set up is
Kindle for mac where all my books reside, from here I add them to Calibre.
But after updating to V2.18 and upgrading DeDrm to V6.1 it would not
work. Turns out all I had to do was delete all my books from the Kindle for
Mac, delete all books from Calibre, empty contents of trash, and
redowlnoad, this did it for me. I'm very happy because my books are on my
Nook reader which is easier to read then the iPad and Kindle Fire.
Biel Solis Mora: THANKS! LIKE!
Anke Bittroff: I used your Link
but i can not find the plugins after i have unzipped?
Lopez Bryan: By chance how do you generate the page numbers on kindle? I want to use it
as page numbers while reading, not "loc" as it shows in the kindle. someone
told me you could generate it from calibre but I am not sure how to do it.
Danial Renton: Thanks David great video... When I put my IP address into the browser it
can't find it! Any suggestions, I have done a test server and the books are
there I just can't access it through my iPad.
Maurice Hendriks: thanks it works as described!
Esteban Beckford: hi bro, I appreciate so much your video, man I have a book in AZW, I got
this book from a friend, I didn´t buy this book from my Kindle, i do not
why did not work with this book. i got a others books from the same guy but
in MOBI format and with those It works, but i do not why did not work with
this ones in format AZW. can you help me???
Heather Delezen: Thank you! This worked perfectly for me. Do you know how to do this with a
book that I borrowed from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library? These books
can only be read on an actual Kindle device, they cannot be opened in the
Kindle for PC application. Thanks again!
fire4bull: And it works, thank you!
Heather Delezen: Does this work for PRC files?
Richard Furphy: Brilliant instructions...even I could do it!
William Wang: It does work for a book published in 2008.
elizabethw67: I downloaded the plugin but couldnt find the five files needed
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?
witchdiva: Very clear. Will try later.
HughWheelerDrums: Cannot find the plugins folder
Tony Robertson: You just made my life a little easier. Thanks, Man.
Martin White: I installed everything, plugins and all but still nothing
rNd Liou: Thanks!...it finally worked (technically challenged :)...there was some
Adware my antivirus detected while downloading...I do have a question
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.
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
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
Stinky Pete: 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
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 Rodriguez: 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
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
