azw1 conversion error

Hi guys, this is my first thread. I am trying to convert a kindle book to pdf so I have installed calibre and Calibre DeDrm plugin, connected my kindle, imported the book but whenever I try to convert it there's an error "calibre, version 5.32.0, WARNING: Could not convert some books: Could not convert the book because no supported source format was found NAME OF THE BOOK - No supported formats (Available formats: azw1)"

Likewise, when I try to save it on my disk, there's an error "calibre, version 5.32.0
WARNING: Error while saving: Failed to update metadata in some books, click "Show details" for more information

Failed to update the metadata in the AZW1 format of: NAME OF THE BOOK by Unknown, with error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "calibre/customize/ui.py", line 451, in set_file_type_metadata
File "calibre/customize/builtins.py", line 542, in set_metadata
File "calibre/ebooks/metadata/topaz.py", line 381, in set_metadata
File "calibre/ebooks/metadata/topaz.py", line 112, in __init__
ValueError: '/home/MyPC/Unknown/NAME OF THE BOOK - Desconhecido.azw1': Invalid Topaz format - no metadata record"

What am I missing?

Thanks a lot

AZW1 (Topaz) does not allow embedding metadata
It is advisory

I suspect that the DRM hasn't been removed. When a Topaz format book is imported and the DRM removed, it appears as HTMLZ.

You'll need to ask for help with DRM removal elsewhere, as detailed help with DRM removal isn't permitted at MobileRead.
