Epub problem on kobo glo

I have successfully put kindle books on my glo using calibre and apprentice alfs help.

Today my mum bought a kobo, and wanted some of the books I had from the kobo site.

I have adobe digital editions, I redownloaded the books as EPUB's. They wouldn't work without DRM removal, which I did on Calibre and I can read them on my pc now. But they wont go onto her glo, when I try, the book titles come over but say they are DRM'd. And then the other books already on are corrupted.

I've taken off my attempts at loading the epubs on, but where am I going wrong?

If you're mum's Glo says the epubs are still DRM'd, then they probably are... are you sure you gave Calibre the right plugins that Apprentice Alf tells you to give it?

Another thing you could to is just authorise your mum's Glo with your ADE details.

If yuo can read the books with calibre's viewer, then they are not DRMed. If not the probbly are.

Maybe check this as a first step.

Are you sending the books to the device from calibre? When you add a book to calibre, it copies the book into its internal store and any changes are made to the copy. The original isn't modified.
