best format to convert to mobi

So I have a Sony 505 and a bunch of LRF's... I want to convert most of them into mobi to use on my Kindle 2.
I sort of have the hang of using LRFTools to convert them to something else... but what is the best format to convert LRFs to before converting them to mobi?

I am on a Mac and will not have access to a windows pc until mid april...

Ideas?

Will LRF Tools make an epub out of an LRF? I can't recall, but if it does you could do that and then use Calibre to make a Mobi.

I didnt think of epub! I tried HTML and XML and they dont come out well. I was starting to think there was a special trick or something. Lets see if it works

Where did you get the LRF files? Most sources for these files also contain other formats such as mobipocket.

Books downloaded from the Sony Store will be "LRX" files, generally speaking, not "LRF". These cannot be converted to other formats.

Since some of these LRF, are LRX, why not just read then on your 505? It's a lot easier then the hassle of trying to convert.

Nope. Sony's DRM has not been broken.

Well... that might be the case. About the only way I can think to convert them it to cut-n-paste them from the Sony eBook Library viewer into files... then format and create a mobi book with them using Mobicreator or Book designer.

I'm not even sure if this is possible. The Sony viewer may block cut-n-paste. I have never tried it.

IIRC it does block cut 'n paste on DRM'd books.

Ah... well in that case... Screen Grabs and OCR. But, at this point it doesn't see cost effective. I would say, read them on your 505 or keep your Sony software/account so you can read them on your PC.

Here's the difference, LRF is non-DRM Sony files and LRX is a DRM Sony file; Sony store ONLY sells LRX (DRM has not been broken and can only be read on Sony reader and computer). Yes, Sony has a library software that allows you to read your books from 6 different devices, and those devices can be readers or computers. Like I have the Sony library installed on 3 computers and I have my reader, so I can download a book purchased from Sony on all 4. So an LRF fife (non-drm Sony file) could easily be converted to Mobi by Calibre.
