Printing is not a supported feature of either format. The best would be just to study them using your reader or on a pc. A PC would let you copy a page if you need to for a study reference. The only way to print the whole book would be to unpack it first, view the files in a browser and print from that. No guarantee that the images would follow or the formatting would be preserved.

Thanks for replying.
I've just goggled after my posting here and found this software EPubsoft ToolBox which enabled me to unlock and convert and print with ease.
But it is not free I am afraid.
Thanks

Open them in Calibre's ebook-viewer. The viewer has a "Print to PDF file" function that has rather reasonable controls and will usually produce a decent PDF for printing. You will have to open the resulting PDF in a full feature PDF reader (e.g. Adobe Reader, Foxit Reader, ...) to actually print the file.

Alternately, you could use Calibre to convert them to PDF.

I tried the software you mentioned.
I am afraid that it is producing a very large size file with a lot of pages.
The original .mobi file when I open it with any pdf viewer like sumatra it shows about 96 page counted by the software.
When I convert it using the EPubsoft ToolBox it converted the .mobi file to a .pdf file with a 243 pages while the software you suggested convert it to a new file with about 982 pages and each page is about few words and the font is very big.
Check attached files.
I've titled each image according to its software.
Check top left area of the image.
The result of the Epubsoft is accepted to me and I did print it and it is really working but the software is not free and it is only 30 days.
So does there is a way to get the same result from the software you suggested?
