Newbie question: mobi convert to sony with Caliber
I just got my 505 yesterday. I purchased a book from mobipocket thinking I would use Caliber to convert it to sony’s format, but it tells me that it is DRMed and needs to be «stripped(?)» before converting. How do I do this? It sounds illeeeeeeeeeegal....but I did buy the book.....?....Am I not supposed to be able to do this?
(apologies for my ebook etiquette ignorance )

hi max !
drm removal *may* be (technically) illegal depending on where you live, however i think we'd all agree that if it is only for your own personal use it falls under "fair use" rules (so you go right ahead and convert those books you legitimately purchased !).
for legal reasons, we're not allowed to give you explicit directions on drm removal here, but a little tip : google "mobidedrm".
in future, just for info, in descending order of desirability, i recommend getting the following formats : epub, LIT, mobipocket.
epub can be read natively on your sony and is the new industry standard format, and a much richer format than any others. lit format (microsoft reader) is stunningly easy to unlock / convert and usually gives good results because it's basically just html with a thin wrapper around it. mobipocket format is very flawed and can't support very advanced formatting, however for a novel you can usually get a decent conversion.
don't hesitate to ask for help if you get stuck ! let us know how you manage.
