Not yet. A new Kobo driver is under development that will allow it, but for the moment you can only see side loaded content.

I'm not looking to remove DRM protection, but would really like to use Stanza to read books purchased from Kobo. (I find the Kobo iphone app too buggy and have used Calibre and Stanza happily till now.)

Is it possible to use Calibre to load books I bought from Kobo into Stanza?

Thanks in advance

If you're not looking to remove DRM, no. Calibre will not convert encrypted content.


Ethics aside, stripping DRM is relatively easy. So if you can get past your trepidations regarding DRM, it would be a (fairly) trivial matter of downloading the ADE epub, removing DRM, and converting.

I suspected as much. I am all for legal digital content, but I find such app/device specific restrictions a major pain in the rear.

Thanks for letting me know.
