Using an older Mac

Hello! A simple question - will Calibre work on an older Mac with an older operating system? It's a Mac 10.6.8 and the OS hasn't been updated in years... I'm not techy at all, so wondering if anyone can give advice on this point - Many Thanks!

Latest Calibre that will run on Snow Leopard is 1.48, which is here: https://download.calibre-ebook.com/1...bre-1.48.0.dmg

The Calibre subforum would have been a better place to ask this.

Can you update the OS to a newer version? The version last version of Calibre that you can run with that OS is very much old and obsolete. Most plugins will not work. And the drivers for a lot of newer devices don't exist.
