JBL review on NewEgg website: Found a way to read kindle books!

I checked JBL deals on NewEgg.com website and found the interesting review:
-------

Pros: I cannot say enough positive things. I will have a difficult time going back to paper now.

Cons: The page turner on the left side could be easier to pull down. The end of my thumb is getting a callous

Other Thoughts: I found a way to copy kindle books to my jetbook. Type "Converting Kindle For PC Books Now Possible" into your favorite search engine.

This makes it possible to get all the latest books on my jetbook!

Your mileage may vary.

I tried that procedure and had problems so I switched to using "Skindel"

The problem here was how to apply the commands. I tried the "Run" as well as just double clicking on the exec.

I figured out that you need to start up the "command prompt" - place yourself in the "My Kindle Content" directory and then apply the skindle command string.

I found that setting up the command strings in Notebook and saving them helped in being consistent with the string. You just had to change the variables and do a copy and paste from notepad into the Command Prompt screen right after the last character in the line. If you have a problem just review the string for a typo.

Here are 2 sample strings. the first one just places me in the correct directory.

The second executes the string command within that directory.

Afterwords you can use Calibre to convert the output files to another format.

usage: ./skindle [-d] [-v] -i <ebook file> -o <output file> [-k kindle.info file] [-p pid]

-d optional, for topaz files only, produce a decompressed output file

-i required name of the input mobi or topaz file

-o required name of the output file to generate

-k optional kindle.info path

-v dump the contents of kindle.info

-p additional PID values to attempt (can specifiy multiple times)



You only need to specify a kindle.info path if skindle can't find

your kindle.info file automatically



execute in the command prompt:



Step one positions you into the kindle content library
. You should only need to do step one once - unless you accidently kick yourself out. That is why I used Notepad. If I screwed up I could just fix it in notepad - save, and then copy and paste for another try.


*** Note: Change the YYY to your user name for the PC logon





cd c:\documents and settings\YYY\my documents\my kindle content\





Step 2 creates a copy of the file with no drm
(May not work for all topaz files) - the copy is placed in the "My Kindle Content" directory.


c:\skindle\skindle -d -i b00xxxxx_EBOK.azw -o Output_name.azw

Note: I extracted the zipped skindle to a directory on my C:drive - that is why you see C:\skindle\skindle...... For those who don't know DOS commands the "C:\skindle\" tells the PC where it can fine the executable program called "skindle" and the parameters such as "-d" are control variables being applied to the program "skindle".

I would double click on an azw file to bring up K 4 PC and this would tell me the name associated with the file name. Then I would have the drm free file outputed as that name.
