My understanding is if you have these types of PDFs on a machine, and you install ADE on that machine and authorize it to your Adobe ID account... that it can convert the protection of these PDFs from machine specific to Adobe ID protected.

Unfortunately, not any more. The servers that allowed this to happen were turned off after December 15th, 2009.

Google for ineptpdf 7.4 and ineptepub 4.1.
And the stream-recorder forum has some more specific links.

If there's no way to re-download the PDF with Digital Editions, it may require another version of the script to strip the DRM...
I have 4 PDF books that I CAN NOT re-download and they DO NOT work with ADE (any version). Torques me . I opened one in a hex editor and found characteristics at the end of the file and it includes "PRINT FIRST =". I also found in there that it is using RC4 for security. What do I need to do to the line(s) so that I can open it with Acro 8 or something so I can read these books I bought so long ago.

Also, to confirm, the snake scripts will not work on the file(s) which prompted me to snoop around inside them.

Thank you for any further help on this matter.

If it's an Adobe Acrobat 5 DRM file you might search for 'Advanced EBook Processor 2.2" (google is your friend). For later versions you're out of luck (the script doesn't support Adobe Acrobat protection (or better to say: the key retrieval - the protection method is probably the same).

You might copy the complete harddisk as an image to your new harddisk (for instance with the dd Linux command or DriveImage cloner). Also you might read out the harddisk serial number (use a Windows tool), keep your current hardware and decide later how to proceed.

By the way with Adobe 7 existed a method (a security glitch) to save a crypted pdf. You loose all metadata (like Toc Links etc.) but you might give it a try.

You can also use the open source tool Bookshooter. It automatically grabs a selected screenzone, makes a screenshot and press to the next page.

and it's impossible to re-download. Amazon removed it from it's bookshelf and from the users who purchased it! (yeah your digital books will be there forever, NOT).
Thanks,

Here is a solution for your problem (if you already have activated and own Adobe 6 (not 5 or 7).

OK, forgive me if this is a dumb question, but - I've checked out an Adopt DE file (extension .acsm) and want to strip the DRM so I can read it on another platform (other than my laptop, on which I can open it no problem.) Do files with this extension fall into the category discusses here, or are they a totally different entity?

.acsm files are not encrypted ebooks. They are files used by ADE to download the encrypted ebooks. You'll need to find where the encrypted ebooks that are downloaded by ADE are stored on your computer. On Macs it's in the Documents folder, inside a folder called "Digital Editions".

A .acsm file is a ticket for an ebook that you have bought. It is used for both PDF and ePub books. So if its is PDF then this thread applies. If it is ePub there is another thread that deals with it.

Hi All,

I ran into a strange problem using ineptpdf. I bought a book, downloaded it, got the key with ineptkey and than deciphered it using ineptpdf. Although, the book was deciphered successfully, the book cannot opened with Adobe Acrobat and Foxit Reader opens the deciphered e-book but displays only the even pages and the odd ones are simply blank.

I tried different versions of both ineptpdf and ineptkey to no avail. My best guess is that there is something wrong with the formatting. How do I solve this?
