Question Calibre and Diesel eBook store

First to the Calibre Devs - best software I never knew I needed till I had it Thanks!!!

Now the question - Found a book I want at Diesel eBook store
http://www.diesel-ebooks.com/item/97...r-eBook/1.html
have read conflicting reviews of this site and have a suspicion that I won't be able to do what I propose with the file.
Up until now I have been getting non-drm ebooks in a variety of formats, then using Calibre to convert them to .lit files to read on my Windows Mobile 6.5 smart phone. (I know, the dinosaur of readers, but it works and is free)

Will I not be able to convert thier PDF's to .lit because of the DRM protection?


Thanks!

If the book is DRM protected then Calibre cannot convert it. Therefore if their PDF books are DRM protected calibre will not convert them unless you can find a way to remove the DRM.
