Calibre said couldn't convert DRM, but Mobipocket Creator did - is this right?

I was converting a bunch of html books last night, but I had several that were only available in Adobe. When I tried to convert them in Calibre, I got an error message saying I had to remove DRM first. Just for fun, I tried to convert them in Mobipocket Creator, and I had no problem.

I suspected Mobi converted the files leaving DRM intact, except that I never entered a PIN to download the Adobe files. Is this just a glitch with Calibre and Mobi and Adobe (I know Mobi is beta).

Just wondering. Thanks, Debra

To be clear, when you say Adobe you mean EPUB files? And when you tried to convert them to MOBI in calibre you got a DRM error, whereas they converted fine using Mobipocket Creator?

If that is the case, open a ticket on the calibre website and attach one of these EPUB files to it, and I'll take a look.

I was just about to post the same problem. I have a PDF book that has a permissions password (so you can't copy/paste/edit), but not a document open password. Mobipocket Creator converts it fine, although I was hoping Calbre would do a better job with the TOC and the paragraph formatting. Perhaps Mobipocket Creator *shouldn't* be converting this file, but... it would be great if Calibre did.
