Converting AZW4 print replica into PDF format.

Does anyone know what settings to mess with to get this to work? As it sits right now it reorganizes the pages. Sorry I'm a bit of a novice but I have the latest möbius pack plugin and there is no DRM on the files I wish to convert. Help!

In case you haven't yet found the answer you were seeking, have a look in this KindleUnpack - The Plugin thread.

After you install the plugin, highlight the file in Calibre that you want to unpack and click on the plugin button.

Yes, by all means... don't convert an AZW4 to PDF. It's already a PDF inside the MOBI/Palmdoc wrapper. It just needs to shed its skin. KindleUnpack (standalone or plugin) is your best bet for that (as was already mentioned).

With the KindleUnpack plugin installed, highlight a DRM-free AZW4, and select "Extract PDF" from the AZW4 submenu of the KindleUnpack menu (either on the toolbar or the context menu... depending on the options you chose when first installing the plugin).

Error unpacking e-textbook

calibre, version 1.20.0
ERROR: Unhandled exception: <b>MemoryError</b>:

This file is Hole's Anatomy and Physiology, 13th edition, purchased from kindle for android, downloaded to kindle for pc, hacked with DeDRM stand alone with working python, confirmed there is NO DRM on the book, it opens and runs fin in calibre 1.2, but the file is 414Mb. This same procedure worked fine for my other textbook, which was 68Mb, so I assume its a file size issue causing memory errors. Any thoughts? I have C++ compiler, I can make modifications to the program if it is simple, i do not know python, but I'm pretty good with C and variants of C.

Kindleunpack is a python script. You could try running as a stand-alone script instead of as a calibre plugin. But for a 414MB book I expect you'll need at least 1GB free memory, possibly more.

Your advice was flawless. I used the KindleUnpack stand alone, only took seconds to extract it as a .pdf

Take that greedy amazon and greedy publishers.

Cheers.

What is this?

When I used the script to unpack the book, it produced several files and a folder with several files inside it. It worked fine with the smaller book, producing a finished .pdf which i can open in acrobat and reader. I am curious what I can do with the unusual file type .rawpr

FCIS52933.dat
FLIS52932.dat
header_PR.dat
Hole's Human Anatomy & Physiology, 13th edition_nodrm.001.pdf (0kb)
Hole's Human Anatomy & Physiology, 13th edition_nodrm.rawpr (423,426kb)

Folder named "mobi7"
Hole's Human Anatomy & Physiology, 13th edition_nodrm.opf
Folder named "Images"
image files of cover

Any ideas?

Not without checking the source, which I can't do until this evening.

Files to Play With

Below is a link to my drop-box with a 7zip containing all pertinent files and some logs for my attempts to extract the e-text to pdf. It is 688Mb in size. Also a copy of the original .azw4 after i removed the drm. When you get the time, i would be very grateful if you would take a look and offer some suggestions. I don't want to hit my clipping limit on this text before my class is over.

Thank you in Advance,

Levi

[SOLVED] Memory error issue

After several long hours, i found my answer in an obscure post deep inside the kindleunpack forum discussion. I upgraded to 64 bit calibre, and behold, plugin worked perfectly, flawless .pdf file in seconds for the big books as well as the smaller ones.
