If you saw a window when opening one book via kindle cloud reader, it means that this book is not supported by Amazon kindle cloud reader. In other words, for this type of book, you can't use KCR Covnerter but Epubor Ultimate works.

Asks you to uninstall your Amazon reader and install an older version. Result looks borderline unreadable. "Trial" version does not list limitations online, but tells you AFTER you tried converting to PDF, INSIDE the resulting PDF that it only gives 20 percent of it, in an invalid format.

It seems you are using the trial version. If you are using the licensed version, you will get the full content in its original format.

Absolutely worthless software. Downgraded Kindle from 1.25 to 1.17 as requested by the software and I still received bugs when converting Kindle ebooks.

My suggestion to you is buy Epubor Ulimate is well worth the money.I am only a customer nothing to do with the company
but I have had this software for many years it’s brilliant I use it regularly as I like to have my books on my IPad so change the
various formats to epub.I buy books and expect to be able to do what ever I want with my property and not be dictated to my ebook sellers

Very helpful guide that resolved my problem. Thank you dear.
05/16/2019 04:29:17
is this process legal?
I would need it for personal use, not for sharing with others.
I prefer PDFs format to take note, copy and paste to translate, etc...

For personal use please.

And if in fact, the drm removing is based on your kindle account or your kindle e-ink device KSN.
