Thanks! I'll give it a try this weekend. if I undersand, convert which will then ive the file two formats and make sure the original (single format) is not on my Kindles.

Since you own a K3 (Kindle Keyboard) you have the option to put the K3 software on your DX to make them more similar (if you feel comfortable with it). I believe it will help with your KF8 format issues (though I only read the original DRM'd files on my Kindles, so I can't swear to it). I used this hack with my DXG.

At present, my K3 (a replacement from the original) is running firmware 3.4 and my DXG is running 3.3 (from my original K3 image).

I have managed to get the Kindle 3.1 software to run on a Kindle 2. Unlike what I expected, the software runs fine with no slowdowns (it is slower then the K3, but on 2.5.8, it is also slower). I've tested the internet browser, pdf reader, audiobook reader, etc. Everything works just as it does on the Kindle 3.
