I took it to mean all letters, numbers.
Nope.... I think it's just an example of what the PID looks like. My last two characters are both letters not digits.

Is it possible that they are stripping the asterisk behind the scenes or doing something so it won't create a Kindle PID properly?
Maybe you're making the same error that I made after using mobi2mobi and mobidedrm which both require a second book name. Kindlefix only requires the source book name and the PID. i.e. Kindlefix Scarletletter.prc XXXXXXX*XX

Are you sure you have the correct PID? What I do is cut and past my Kindles S/N from the amazon web site so I don't have to worry about typos.

I just got an answer from Amazon....so for anyone else out there who ever wonders if they have a "0" or "o", here it is.......
Thank you for writing about your serial number.

There are no letter "o"'s in the kindle serial number. if you are having issues registering your account you can call us a 1-866-321-8851.


That clears that up, and now I am 100% certain I have the correct PID...........

All I've done is learn from reading everyones posts.
Let us know if that works for you. I've just got back to the laptop and am starting to play again. Isn't this fun?

Yep..that was it...thank you Leep!!

I'm soooo stoopid

(If you are still having problems, I'd take pilotbob up on his very generous offer to webex...he only accesses your PC for the session with your permission and you can see everything he is doing).

Don't think anything of it, I hadn't used Kindlefix for a while so I gave Desert Grandma an incorrect command line and have had her running in circles. At least with all of us working on it, we have it figured out. A very great thing about this forum.

cheers

If you do have Mobidedrm.py 0.01 & 0.02 or just the 0.04 version, then just put in the computer's PID, strip the DRM after purchase and be done with it. Case closed.
