Hi all,

For some time now I've owned a Kindle and purchased quite a few books on it. However, as I want to share it with my various devices, I stumble across a big annoying blockade: The DRM protection that is built into the AZW format that Amazon uses.

I've been looking into this question for a few months now, but still haven't found a workable solution. So, does anyone else have experience with this issue that could help me out?

Thanks :)

Don't know how legal that is for you to do, so I won't give direct links. Just asked your prefered search engine for something like 'calibre drm remove plugin' and you should find what you need.

Yeah, I tried those, but apparently can't make them to work. Do they only work with specific versions on Calibre? I'm running the latest version right now.

Update:
Ok, just before I went to work I thought to give it another try and it now works. At least, I could open the ebook in Calibre 0.9.1 :)
Not sure if I can do other things, like convert it to PDF and all that, but will try more thoroughly when I get back home.

Thanks!
