Mac epub issue - pls advise :)

I've got a PRS 505 and use a mac.

The reader works well as a drag and drop device. I have just purchased a book from Waterstones that I've discovered is a DRM encoded epub. When I access the book on my reader the message says "protected page.' and won't let me access the books content.

I've tried to convert the epub to an lrf using Calibre but to no avail. The message from the Calibre software says that in order to convert to an lrf I need to remove the DRM.. I know this is possible but I'd like to steer clear of copy-write issues. I'm not sure if it is a mac/reader issue or a mac/epub issue or perhaps even an issue with the file being DRM encoded!

I've purchased this book legally and would like to read it! Any ideas?

You need to authorize your PRS-505 on the same Adobe account as you use on your Mac. To do this, you need one time access to a Windows PC. See PRS-505 and a Mac Question.
