Hello,

I just purchased epubor ultimate and  I am disappointed by the fact that kindle azw3 files seem not supported.

How can DRM be removed from the latter?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards,

If I have a kindle e-book on my PC before I try this will I lose it if I try this or do I need to download first.

Hi, John

Sorry for the inconvenience.

For removing Kindle DRM:
Make sure all the books are synced by the same version of Kindle for PC (other than directly copied from your Kindle device or other sources) and you can read all the books on Kindle for PC!

1, Download and authorize Kindle for PC with your Amazon ID;
2, Sync all books to PC, make sure you can read them;
3, Run Epubor software!

I have downloaded the appropriate epub removal for Mac. However, I can't work out how to actually get the books from Kindle into the programme to convert them. Can you advise where you have instructions to enable me to do this? Kindle is greyed out and I can't access the files for the actual books in Kindle anywhere to convert them.

Hi,

Please click Help-->Settings to set your Kindle eBook path, then the software will automatically detect and upload them.

Thank you !

I am still unable to use this software. When I go into Kindle to follow your instructions from the link, there is no Tools > Options > Content. I can't go any further.
