I can’t get the tools to work on my rented or library ebooks.
The Data File Host download link does not work or just gives me .php files, not .zip files, or says “you can’t download files directly”.
I am trying to install the calibre plugin, but calibre keeps on saying that the plugin is invalid.
I’ve fully unzipped the tools archive, but I can’t find the calibre plugin when I try to add them to calibre. I use Windows.
I have installed the calibre plugins, but now I get an error “Plugin not configured! Decryption unsuccessful. This may be the first time you’ve used this plugin (or the first time since upgrading this plugin). You’ll need to open the customization dialog (Preferences->Plugins->File type plugins).”
How do I remove the old plugins?
I have installed the calibre plugin, but my books still have DRM. When I try to view or convert my books, calibre says they has DRM.
I have installed the calibre plugin or I am trying to use one of the other tools, but I don’t know where my ebooks are stored.
I have installed the calibre plugin, and the book is not already in calibre, but the DRM does not get removed.
I have installed the calibre plugins and the book is not already in calibre, but the DRM does not get removed. It is a Barnes & Noble book.
I have installed the calibre plugin, and the book is not already in calibre, but the DRM does not get removed. It is a Kindle book.
Some of my books had their DRM removed, but some still say that they have DRM and will not convert.
I didn’t use to have any problems with the tools and my Kindle ebooks, but now I’m getting .azw3 files instead of .mobi files.
Do the tools work on books from Kobo?
Do the tools work on books from Sony?
I cannot solve my problem the DeDRM plugin, and now I need to ‘post a log’. How do I do that?
I cannot solve my problem with one of the DeDRM applications, and now I need to ‘post a log’. How do I do that?
Why don’t the tools work with Kindle Fire ebooks?
Why doesn’t the UDID of my iOS device work for my Kindle for iOS ebooks?
Do the tools work on books from the Apple iBooks Store?
I’ve got the tools archive and I’ve read all the FAQs but I still can’t install the tools and/or the DRM removal doesn’t work
Once the DRM has been removed, is there any trace of my personal identity left in the ebook?
What are Kindle Topaz ebooks? HTMLZ? SVG?
I’ve bought Mobipocket ebooks from an on-line retailer without having to enter the PID of my copy of Mobipocket Reader, and I can read them in Mobipocket Reader. But when I try to convert them to another format, calibre says that they have DRM, but the tools say they don’t contain a PIDs, and I should open them in Mobipocket Reader. What’s going wrong?
Are the tools open source? How can I be sure they are safe and not a trojan horse?
I have an old encrypted PDF file that won’t open in Adobe Digital Editions, how can I remove the DRM?
What ebooks do these tools work on?
Who wrote these scripts?
