I tried removing and adding the book again, several times in various combinations with installing/uninstalling old Kindle for Mac versions, but sadly it did not work.

Only thing, I could not find Kind for Mac version 1.25.2, though maybe it does not matter?

Just in case it is relevant, my MacBook is running Sonoma 14.5
I haven't tried Method B for a long time and no longer have older K4Macs installed to test, so it's possible Method B no longer works on K4Mac.

That said, did you open Terminal to apply chmod -x or sudo chmod -x?

yes I did that - had to go for the sudo version, and as noted elsewhere I also got the instability in the app, from which I take it that I did it correctly, but alas no joy, nothing other than the kcr and mbpV2 files are downloaded.

It looks like my book is going to be stuck in its cage :-(

Thanks for your help nonetheless!

I successfully download using Kindle for Mac 1.29.0 (58033) using the right-click download option. (At least, for books not published very recently.) I downloaded one this way yesterday.

It might help to know which book you are working on in case there is something unusual about it.

sure, I should have said it in the first place, this is it:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

the pages do look all like each is a pdf.

For what it may be worth, on a Windows box with K4PC 2.30, the sample of the ebook downloaded and imported into calibre. Oddly, it downloaded to K4PC as azw3/KF8 not KFX format. KindleUnpacking it, every page is an 1358x1920 image with no text.

I took at stab at starting a new thread in hopes of creating a new central place for discussion and investigation going forward for people who want to use Kindle ebooks with calibre: Dealing with Kindle ebooks in calibre. It is my hope that it can be made a Sticky.

thanks so much Paul - I've again uninstalled the umpteenth version of kindle and reinstalled 1.29.0 (58033).

Ran "sudo chmod -x /Applications/Kindle.app/Contents/MacOS/renderer-test" in a terminal window before launching the app.

Launched the app and downloaded with right click.

Unfortunately, no change

Thanks anyway for trying!

To avoid that thread becoming a duplicate of this one, I have closed it and stickied it.

I suggest adding a link to this thread for questions/discussions, while that thread remains a single post summarising the latest info distilled from this thread. Assuming you're willing to maintain it.

Preventing active discussion in the new thread kind of defeats the purpose of the new thread to me.

The reason I started the new thread is because jhowell wrote:

If active discussion is going to continue in this thread, I think this thread should be re-Stickied and I will delete the new thread.

Respectfully,

~oda

ETA: I just discovered that with the new thread closed, I cannot edit it. So the question of my continuing to maintain the single post is moot. If I can't edit it, it's impossible for me to update and maintain it.

Seriously, if the new thread is going to be closed and active discussion continue in this thread, I think the new thread should be deleted and this old thread re-Stickied.

Hmm... In that case, I'll re-open the new thread and close this one.
