It has nothing whatsoever to do with Calibre, so Calibre can't "fix" it. The format of the KFX DRM "voucher" files has changed. Calibre does not, and never has, removed DRM.

Any change would need to be in the DRM removal tools.

I don't have any branded devices, just a Windows 10 Phone (Lumia 930) and a Surface Pro 4. Amazon killed off their app, so now I'm stuck with unreadable books except for the clunky PC version of Kindle.

Any ideas of what I'm doing wrong? I'm brand new to Calibre and this whole EPUB & DRM thing.
Step 1 in jhowell's post worked for me. See the very first post in this thread.

Does anyone have a link for a 64 bit version of Kindle for Mac <1.25?

FYI, it looks like there was no 1.24 for Mac, and 1.25 has been pushed since 12/18...

My copy of 1.25 for Mac was working fine up until this week, when suddenly Calibre began converting Amazon files to KFX-ZIP. I can't tell what the specific cause of the breakdown was (simply newly configured books?).

However, reinstalling 1.19 (a 32 bit app?) allows much of the same functionality that was available earlier.

The "specific cause of the breakdown" was that the DeDRM plugin does not work beginning with 1.25. See the updated info in the first post.

Version 1.25.x is the first 64 bit version released for the Mac. This may be a problem for Mac users wanting to upgrade to a 64-bit only OS later this year.

I just upload the version 1.17 kindle for pc, I try to read my ebooks on Calibre but it do not open my books... so, Consequently, I can't convert these in pdf because at first Calibre don't read my ebook, and If I try to upload plugin the program tell me that ebook is using a DRM (of course). The format of my ebook is KFX.

Detailed help with DRM removal isn't permitted at MobileRead. But do note that Version 1.17 of Kindle for PC will not download KFX format ebooks, so you didn't download that book using Kindle for PC 1.17.

Did you remove the books from your local Kindle library and then re-download the books using K4PC 1.17?

Version 1.17.1 of Kindle for Mac not permitting "download"

I have kept the 1.17.1 Kindle version for Mac running on my machine.
However, it appears that Kindle doesn't "download" new books anymore. The menu item "download" is greyed out... and right clicking on the particular item in the Kindle reader doesn't show any "download" option anymore.
When I go to the last page of the book, Kindle keeps showing it at 99% downloaded. In my local "kindle content" folder I cannot see any new file downloaded, either.
Has anybody else run into this issue?
Is this is a way of trying to push everyone into upgrading the Kindle reader first, before one can fully download new purchases?

I have seen that happen in Kindle for PC when a download fails. Try this: Exit the Kindle for Mac program. Restart it and right click on the problem book. Choose "Remove from device". Then right click again and choose "Download".

Also, try the same on a different book. It might just be one problematic book.

Clarification question:

After updating A Certain Other Tool to 6.6.2 (released today), can one safely install Kindle for PC version 1.25 and the KFX Input Tool, and expect to import newly downloaded KFX-ZIP files from Amazon in to Calibre and output them as .epubs (or whatever other format)? Several messages and "release notes" both here and elsewhere sort of imply that this should now be possible, but nobody either (a) actually confirms or denies it, or (b) explains what workarounds might be necessary to make this work.

The information in the first post of this thread about what will and will not work with various versions of Kindle for PC/Mac is still accurate.

I suggest you check the FAQs at github. They seem to have been updated at the same time as 6.6.2 was released.

In particular, the new line

"Do NOT use Kindle for PC/Mac version 1.25 or later. The tools don't current[sic] work with those versions."

Not very grammatical, but clear enough, I think.
