Kobo purchase book transfer to Calibre

I recently purchased 2 books on Kobo.com. But I can't figure out how to get them from the Kobo Clara to the Calibre library. When I try to add books to library, I get an error that says the books are virtual and cannot be added to the Calibre library.

v/r,

Google Apprentice Alf and install the OBOK tool from his set of deDRM tools for calibre.

MR forum rules don't permit detailed instructions, but you can ask questions on Apprentice Alf's site.

An alternative way to do this is to download from the Kobo library on their site. The main difference with this is that you will be downloading the epub version of the book rather than the kepub that is downloaded by the Kobo app or device. That will mean the book doesn't have the extra styles and spans that Kobo add to a kepub.

The disadvantage of this is that if the book has DRM, you will need ADE to download the book. For non-DRMed books, you will just download the epub directly.

Hi, I have a similar, but I think, simpler problem. I have a non-DRM document on my Kobo that I want to copy to the main Calibre library.
How do I do this?
Thanks for any tips,
Rojofo
