I was browsing on Fictionwise, and saw a couple of versions of the OED in secure Mobipocket format. I was wondering if anyone had tried deDRMing that for conversion and use on their own personal devices, and if so, whether the results were satisfactory.

@starrigger
Thanks for finding that updated .epub so useful.

@ZP
OK I've got one more extremly large dictionary that I converted almost 6 years ago for my own personal use (see below pics). You may not know about this one.

It was a 25MB OED.lit that yielded (extracted) a 70 MB .html and after adding a simple TOC produced a 55 MB .imp file. It was not useful/readable on my REB1200 hardware reader as it exhausted/max-ed out its internal memory!

It was a challenge that could not yield any acceptable results then. Maybe when my hardware reader can allow this large a .imp file, I'll revisit this dictionary.

So, it may be possible to extract that Mobipocket OED, as I did with the .lit version, though I have not attempted to do so.
