I'm guessing the partial solution to this problem may be that no DRM-stripping (or De-DRM'ing) plugin or App is 100 % successful; apprently they work on some files....but not others.
No, it works on all Kindle books that you can read on Kindle for PC or an E-Ink Kindle.

For detailed help, you'll have to ask at Apprentice Alf's blog, but I think it might be permissible to point out that the DRM removal happens on import into calibre, not on conversion.

The site came up half a day later. I was able to access it and download the tools. Added the Plugin to Calibre and was successfully able to convert one of my Kindle books to the MOBI format. That's the good news....

The bad news is, the other book I tried to convert was a total fail - got messages saying that the DRM needed to be removed. Which is weird, since it (the DRM-stripping/conversion plug in, which operates automatically after being installed in Calibre) worked perfectly on another book.

I'm guessing the partial solution to this problem may be that no DRM-stripping (or De-DRM'ing) plugin or App is 100 % successful; apprently they work on some files....but not others.

But at least I've gotten the Plugin downloaded, installed & working.

Just thought I'd report this. CHEERS everyone, and thanks for the suggestions and comments.

Miguel
That's odd. I had been in the habit of converting all my books to mobi format as soon as I purchased them, but have slipped out of doing it on a regular basis. However, after reading your post, I converted three recent purchases and has no problem.

Perhaps some kind soul will contact you privately with a solution (it can't be done publicly as detailed instructions for DRM removal are forbidden at MobileRead).

I didn't see you had already replied, Paul, but I think you may be on to something with that second paragraph.

I can't seem to download this. My anti-virus programs throw warnings and then block the file outright if I ignore them.

And then I can't even seem to access datafilehost at all. :P

Chrome seems to throw a lot of false positives. I suggest using a different browser. (And do follow the instructions to uncheck the download manager checkbox!)

The 6.2.0 "release" appears to be the plugin source and the plugin zip only. Nothing else is included. There's at least one file there that appears to not belong to the plugin, but it doesn't look particularly harmful. Just maybe a little careless?

Not sure what to think, really.

EDIT: seems you have to download from the Source Code link to get the full tools package.

Little odd that nothing is mentioned on Alf's site other than in the comments section, but it could be legit, I guess.
