Multiple reader device support

My wife and I both have Kindles and use a common copy of Calibre. We have to keep separate copies of the same copy protected book in Calibre. We use tags to try to keep them straight but it's easy to make mistakes. Is there some feature in Calibre I've missed to help track protected books by device? Anybody have any easy system to tracking them in Calibre?

I strongly reccommend avoiding any DRM'd files all together. Failing that, you should looking in to unlocking any DRM'd files. I haven't tried with kindle files, but it's very easy with mobipocket files. Perhaps if you get the mobipocket pids for your kindles they would work for decrypting the files.

I'm afraid there is no such feature. Tags are probably the best way to go
