It might be a package... many mac apps store stuff in packages.

Zip is built into OS X... and there are plenty of freely available Mac apps. That said, most Mac apps, like Omnigraffel, blow away windows counterparts (like visio) and are much cheaper.

But, to each his own.

Right-click (or control-click) on the file in Finder. Select "compress <filename>". You now have a zip file as well as the original. Or if you must drop to the command like, zip is built-in there too.

They're all much the same. ePub usually has better source files (better formatting, bigger graphics), so if it wasn't for the fact that I mostly read on a Kindle, ADE ePub would be my format of choice. As it is, I usually buy the Mobipocket, as then I don't need to format convert, just strip the DRM.

For people on Windows/Internet Explorer, possibly Microsoft Reader is the easiest to strip. But downloading it is impossible if you're not using Windows/IE.

I wasn't interpreting it that way just showing that Mac OS X has these odities as well.

It was before Snow Leopard and I hadn't found the compression option (I may have tried the right mouse button).

This questions aren't formulated right. You don't crack the format you crack the drm attached to the format.

All of these are broken so far. Microsoft Reader isn't used as far as I can see.

The easiest are now the DRM schemes that have .pyw scripts to circumvent them. These include Adobe ePub and PDF (PDF is harder in that a few PDFs still fail) and Kindle for PC.

If you use Calibre, recent versions of the mobidedrm.py script can be used as a pre-processing plugin for MOBI. So once you get it working, Calibre handles DRMed MOBIs just like DRM-free MOBIs.

The error indicates that you are using the wrong Adobe ID. You can use the ebook only with the original Adobe ID on which you downloaded it. It doesn't matter whether you have ADE 1.7.1 or 1.7.2. Also it doesn't matter which computer as long as it has ADE registered to the same Adobe ID.

If you had ADE on the original computer not tied to an Adobe ID but anonymous, I think I have read on Adobe's website that you can authorize it on an Adobe ID and then your downloaded books will be converted to that ID. Otherwise you can try to re-download the book with the correct Adobe ID.

What you did wrong first was not registering the copy of Adobe Digital Editions before downloading your book. That tied the DRM to that particular installation, rather than to your Adobe ID.

Your second mistake was to delete the installation of ADE on the computer, since that was the copy that contained the key to decrypt your book.

I don't know how ADE chooses a DRM key without an Adobe ID. If it involves a random number generator, then there's no-way you'll decode that book. If it depends on the computer hardware, it's possible that re-installing ADE on the original computer and not registering an ID would allow you to read the book again.

If you do manage to get into a state where you can read the book with ADE, the current 'inept' scripts should allow you to remove the DRM

If you can't get the book to display with any ADE installaton, you'll have to ask your supplier very nicely to allow you to download it again to a new installation of ADE (and don't forget to register it with tyour Adobe ID first!). Since this will cost them money*, ask them very, very nicely.

Best of luck.

*Adobe charges a small few for every encryption with the Adobe Adept DRM scheme. It's currently £0.11 + VAT for a non-expiring certificate. As far as I can tell, the only way to see this price is to actually click on the "buy now" button on the Adobe Content Server product page. http://www.adobe.com/products/contentserver/
