Where to Download KFX Input Plugin?

Never mind. I found the link under my nose. Thanks anyway.

Hello,

I've been using DeDRM in Calibre for some years now. Today I upgraded both Kindle for PC (1.24.3) and DeDRM (6.61). I've installed this plugin w/o issue. However, I can't find the download location for the KFX Input Plugin. I've read this thread and searched the plugin library, but I can't find it.

Help please?

Is it safe to say that a lot of books / files don't have metadata associated with them when they are sourced directly from the maker of the reader? Most of mine don't, and I just want to make sure that I don't have something setup incorrectly where they aren't being read in. Thanks.

Book in KFX format imported from a Kindle device or app will generally have the following metadata: title, author, language, publisher, publication date, and ASIN. A short description will occasionally also be present. You should see these in your calibre library when you add a book in KFX format.

Other metadata, such as series and ISBN, are not contained within the book. You will need to add those manually or download them using metadata plugins.

Super. Thanks. Didn't even think of looking at those items. The files in question do have that metadata, so it looks like everything is working as it's supposed to.

Ok what am I missing here?

I try to package both kfx files into a zip file, then rename it ".kfx-zip"

I drop that in Calibre, but it's reading it as a .zip, and not kfx-zip, so it can't convert it.

If calibre sees it as zip format then most likely you have failed to rename the file correctly. Research renaming files for your operating system.

To find out more information you can create an import log. Restart calibre in debug mode (choose this from the menu after right clicking Preferences), import the file, and exit calibre. A log of the import process will appear. You can should be able to determine from that what file type has been imported from that.

Also make sure that you have included all of the files that make up the book in your kfx-zip file.

It might be easier to follow the instructions in the first post of this thread to have the plugin create the kfx-zip for you automatically.

Thanks for the quick response. I feel like I read the instructions 5x, but went back and read them one more time. Realized I was grabbing the wrong KFX file

Import worked as expected and can now successfully convert.
