Trying to convert azw book

Hi,


New here & no expert in any of this, just use Calibri etc for myself.

I am trying to convert an Amazon azw ebook to epub, so I can listen to it on my iTouch with a audio book reader called Voice Dream. (I do this as my iTouch weighs far less than my Kindle when I go backpacking, I also like the audio as we listen to books around the campfire).

The Amazon book is actually free today 8/3/13 & is called Treasure of the High Sierra: Dead Men's Gold (Florea and Holland Mystery Series) [Kindle Edition].

But I can't get it to convert.

I am using Calibri v 0.9.4 without any plugins.

I have always been able to do this before, but lately (within the last 6 months), have sometimes been having problems.

Is anyone able to convert this book?

Thanks!

It likely has DRM applied.

from what I see on book's amazon page (http://www.amazon.com/Treasure-High-...dle+Edition%5D)
This book has amazon drm applied. (one of easy ways to check is look for 'Simultaneous Device Usage: Unlimited' on book's page)
This mean for this book regular conversion won't work because either Amazon doesn't want you to do so.

Search on Google, et al., would be better.
