Convert DRM books to Epub/other

After downloading a DRM book and then unlocking for reading, is it possible to use Calibre (as an example) to convert the unlocked book to another format?

I assume you mean that you remove the DRM? Calibre will not remove DRM for you.

If so, then, yes, Calibre will convert to another format. You will see a "Convert E-Books" tab at the top of the screen. Highlight the book you want to convert in the main Calibre screen and click that and you will see input/output options and other formatting options. If you can't work those out, please ask again. Hope this helps.

Mobileread's rules forbid giving details about that. You can google for the filetype in question and /remove drm/, which often gives you pointers towards the right software.

The details will be different depending on what kind of file you're starting with.

Is that a recent rule? Only I found out how to do it to epubs here about a month ago, and the thread I got it from is still available ...

It's a longstanding rule; what counts as "details" is a bit fuzzy. Discussion *about* the various methods available is okay; links are not. And apparently, details are occasionally exchanged by PM.

As far as I know, all currently-sold DRM ebook formats have been cracked; some are easier to deal with than others. (Topaz is the worst; .Lit is the easiest.)
