.azw4 format

Hey , I have a textbook in the azw4. format so I could try to send you guys that. But what I'm looking for is a way to convert the .azw4 format to something I can open on my iPad. I can't convert using DeDRM or Calibre.... Help !

See this thread

If your file has DRM, nothing available will touch it. It can only be read on Kindle for PC or Kindle for Mac.

Non-DRM AZW4 input support has been added to calibre. It's very basic but this will change over time.

If you wander over to Apprentice Alf's blog, I think you'll now find what you're looking for.

Wow — under two weeks from the first report of a new format being available to a stand-alone tool to extract the PDF, initial calibre support and the appearance of DRM removal tools.

MobiUnpack gets the PDF out of the sample file with no problems for me. There's no actual converting needing to be done. Do not try to convert AZW4 to PDF with calibre at the moment. It tries to convert the embedded PDF to XHTML and then back to PDF. Ugh.

Yeh i used MobiUnpack. Should just add MobiUnpack to Calibre for direct conversion.

I'm having this exact same problem and trying to do the same thing (get an AZW4 readable on my iPad).

I've got mobiunpack 31 (is that the right one to use?) but I don't know what to do with it. I tried following the instructions in this thread: (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=121815)

But I just got DOS error messages saying invalid command lines.

The important first step is to install a good version of Python 2.x. The ActiveState Python implementation is the one I'd recommend. It's got all the bits needed for the script, and it comes packaged as an installer, and is free.

Download the right one for your machine from here.

You want Version 2.7.x (NOT 3.x) for Windows x86 (NOT 64-bit)

Install that, and then try, in a command window

python mobiunpack.py

and see what happens.

Once the DRM is taken care of, you just need the KindleUnpack plugin. This will extract the PDF from the .azw4 wrapper.
