Are you trying to convert LRX or LRF? if it's LRX, it won't work as that's chock full of DRM.

The Amber Sony converter ... leaves a lot to be desired.

Most folks have been pretty disappointed with it, but it's the only straight out converter available so far.

However, since the files you have are LRF, you have another option. If you open them in the Sony PC software (assuming you have a PC ) you can copy the text straight out of its viewing feature (with a simple ctrl+a ctrl+c) and paste it into wherever you need to go. Hope that helps.

You can use lrf2lrs and then edit the LRS from there.
