Thought I saw a post once that said Book Creator would do it? Not sure. Haven't bought any drm free ereader so far, only secure ereader.


Edit...it might be book designer instead of book creator.

Have you tried the eReader2Html script? What does it do if the file is not encrypted? I bet it would be pretty easy to remove the de drm part of the code.

BD doesn't work in all cases. So that's a no go for some books.

It does not work as is unless there is DRM.

ereader2oeb would be a great command to go into Calibre.

Is there a good source of DRM-free eReader ebooks for testing such a converter?

Have you tried the ABC Amber Palm Converter. It works for most non-DRM eReader files I have tried. The output does have all of your (Jon's) normal complaints about ABC Amber output but it does work most of the time and it is free.

Isn't that one of the formats available with fictionwise's multiformat books?

According to their FAQ, multiformat includes the PalmDOC format, which is readable by eReader, but not the eReader format.

Just a thought, but I think Stanza will do it... I think it will allow you to export any format it can read as an html... though I don't think it will also export images and stuff, so you might loose stuff in the process.

If you send me a non-DRMed eReader file I will try to modify it so that it will work. Can't be too hard... even though I don't work in python all that much I can usually read and edit existing code of languages I haven't worked with.

Actually, I think Stanza will export to a multitude of formats, so you could convert from PDB to just about anything, including PDF, Mobi, Word, HTML, RTF, Text, even Kindle. I guess the success of the various conversions will differ, so you can try a few.

Interparse4 seems to work. I just downloaded a free .pdb of "Around the World in 80 Days" from Fictionwise, opened it in Interparse, converted it to HTML, and was able to open it in Firefox. Took less than a minute, not including the download.

Development of Interparse seems to have been abandoned and most links are dead, but I believe there's a working link aroud these forums somewhere.

Anybody know for sure whether Fictionwise uses Ereader format for the free Palm format files, or just PalmDOC format?

It is probably PalmDOC, but it is easy to tell. Open the .pdb file with a text editor and look near the start for TEXtREAd (PalmDOC) or PNPdPPrs (eReader), see wiki: PDB.
