erm, simple question , hope for simple answer!


like to buy another e reader as my cooler screen has died...but I am unsure if kindle allows books I have bought already to be uploaded. They are in adobe digital editions....it seems from all I have read that kindle only want you to buy books from them?
so can i upload from ADE???

thanks from a newbie

Hi Al
I'm still new to this world, but ..
Simple answer is : No
It might be possible to strip the ADE protection from YOUR books, then convert them to a format suitable for Kindle. Whether this is legal for you to do, depends where you live.
Hope you'll more informed answers from the more experienced.
Cheers,

What pchrist7 said is correct. Adobe Digital Editions will have DRM protection and a file format that isn't compatible with the Kindle.

it is very easy to remove the adobe drm. Just do a google search for:

remove epub drm

Click the first link, look at post #3.

Once you have removed the drm, you can use Calibre to convert the file to .mobi - which is readable on the kindle.

They're correct, you can't use a Kindle for that. My suggestion is to check out either the jetBook or the Astak 5" reader. Both have Adobe DRM and a very wide selection of non-DRM file formats. They're also fairly inexpensive. I have a jetBook and a K3 and I like them both. Before I bought the jetBook, I looked very seriously at the Astak. There's a forum for that.

Regards,
