need help with fictionwise purchases

Ok, I am new to this business but I know the help I need is here. So thanks in advance.

I just purchased a couple of books from fictionwise. Now how do I get them on my reader?


I was using calibre and I get a message that they are drm's and can not be converted without removing the drm first.

Ok ---- how do I remove the drm and do I really need to do this or is there some other way to get fictionwise to download them to my reader?


Some of this is so confusing.....

I've never used Fictionwise, I prefer BooksonBoard. And you have the wrong format, it's an eReader format which your Sony does not read. To not have to bother with DRM, you need to purchase only ePub or PDF (this one does not look pretty when you change the font size). I've never puchased a .pbd file so I don't know how to remove the DRM (I know it's possible). I stick to Mobi, Lit, ePub, & lastly PDF. You need to download Abode Digital Editions in order to purchase ePub or PDF books: http://www.adobe.com/products/digitaleditions/
Once download you have to activate it (email address and password). Then Plug in your Sony PRS-600 while the software is open and you activate that using the same information you created. Then you can just pull and drop your purchase from the software to your reader.

yep I had the wrong format. When I downloaded the book with the right format it works great. As I said new to this. Thanks and I will have to look at booksonboard also. The reason I went with sony was so I could get books from multiple places.

again thanks
