Hey guys,

I hope this is in the right place. I bought a Kindle book for my iphone. I would really like to read it in Stanza. So I DeDRM'd it using mobidedrm v0.2 Things went smoothly from what I can tell. But when I try to open it in Stanza it says "IndexError: list index out of range" This error also happens with Calibre. Calibre can read the metadata but when I try to convert or read it gives the Index error.

Any thoughts? I know this DRM stuff is a no no on the forum, but maybe you guys can point me in the right direction? Is it an decryption problem? I can't test in Mobidesktop because I'm running a PPC mac.

Thanks

It might be because Stanza isn't very good at reading Mobipocket ebooks. Or it might be because there are a few bugs in 0.02 and it can't handle all Mobipocket ebooks.

On a completely different topic — who's that shadowy figure over there in that car... that can't be safe, driving backwards while tapping away at a laptop. Someone ought to tell him it's dangerous, possibly illegal. But how to tell him? If only there was somewhere on the internet that he might see a comment...

...perhaps that dark reverser has a blog.

I agree with pdurrant: try version 0.05.
