DRM protected ebooks

I have downloaded calibre but it will not remove DRM from ebooks I purchased for my Sony reader - Any thoughts on purchasing DRM removal? Wondering if it is worth the cost or should I just stick to buying and reading through Kobo? Any suggestions/thoughts appreciated!

Re: DRM protected ebooks

Go do some reading about DRM stripping! Just do a Google search, its that simple. I have never purchased ebooks and do not think I will ever do so, to get ebooks for my Playbook! I use the BookReader app to read my books and have the entire NY Times Bestseller list. Both fiction and non-fiction! Good luck.

Re: DRM protected ebooks

You have to get a special plugin for Calibre to remove the DRM. Google it. That is what I would do for the books you already purchased if you want to move them to the Playbook.

Re: DRM protected ebooks

Sorry, still having a problem. I looked in Calibre under Preferences and Plugins, but do not see anything about removing DRM. Do I need to go outside Calibre to add a pluin or is it a separate tool?
