Convert Sony eReader to Kindle Format

Is there a program that will convert LRF files to read on Kindle? I have a number of LRF books.

Thanks.

There is one I think, bit I hear it isn't great. Most places that source LRF files will also have a mobipocket format file that you can d/l and use on your kindle.

If they are LRF, not LRX, then the only thing I can think of is to use LRF Tools and convert from the output it gives...

I am in that predicament and what I am doing is using LRFTools to convert them to EPUM and then using Calibre to convert them to MOBI. So far it is working just fine though it is a a pain in the ass

But remember that most of the books in the Sony Store are in LRX format. This is the DRM'd version of LRF, and it can't be converted.
