Step 2: DRM removal: How to Remove DRM from EPUB files using ePubee DRM Removal:
1. Install Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) v1.7.1 (restating this step since its very import to do first – if you don’t, the DRM program won’t work)
Authorize your copy of Adobe Digital Editions, download the EPUB files to your desktop PC, make sure the EPUB files can be opened on ADE.
2. Install ePubee Drm Remvoal which you can get here for FREE:
When you install the program, Run ePubee Drm Removal to remove DRM from EPUB files:
Next step is to Input files as follows:
Click on the “browse” button to choose your EPUB e-book / input folder.
If you just can’t find the EPUB e-book, open Adobe Digital Editions and find the path in the properties of the e-book.
You do not need to find the EPUB Files one by one, just choose the folder which the EPUB files were saved in, the ePub Drm Removal software helps you decrypt tens of DRM protected EPUB files at one time!
Click “unDrm directory”, this removes the DRM from all of the EPUB files
The decrypted EPUB files will be saved to another folder no change to the source files
Open your newly created DRM-free EPUB file with your favorite application (on whatever device you like).
If you don’t do the above ‘Step 2′ first, the next product won’t work.
Step 3: Download and Install Calibre
Next download and install Calibre for FREE (again – no trials, no pay later for the full program to work) which can be found here:
After installing Calibre, run the program and add your EPUB ebook file to Calibre.
Once you have added the file, you have the option to convert your e-book files.
While highlighting the EPUB file you want to convert to PDF format, click on the icon that says: Convert Books
In the upper left and right corners you have the input file (original file format you added into Calibre) and the output file. These can be changed via the little black arrow down button. Be sure to check that the input file says: EPUB and the output file is changed to say: PDF (since for the purpose of this blog tutorial is to convert the EPUB file to a PDF file. If you want another file you can play around with those once you’ve done this first test run to a PDF file). Once you have verified the correct output file, click the okay button in the lower right corner. Calibre will convert the file to a PDF format in just a couple of minutes or less.
Once the conversion is completed, you can highlight the book that you just converted and to the left of the window, click on Formats. As you can see in the image below, on the right, the E-book file by Laurie, Victoria is in both an EPUB format and PDF format. If you ‘click to open’ as it says next to ’ Path:’- a new window will open which will show you where the PDF file is stored on your PC.
Now that you’ve installed all 3 of these software programs, you can download all your EPUB e-book files and convert them to PDF files with ease.
