DRM Removal Tools for eBooks

Version 7.2.1 released on 11 April, 2021

Welcome to Apprentice Alf’s blog

This blog is intended to help anyone looking for free and simple software for removing DRM from their Kindle ebooks, stripping DRM from their Adobe Digital Editions ebooks, getting rid of DRM from their Barnes and Noble ebooks, freeing their Kobo ebooks of DRM, or decrypting their Fictionwise eReader ebooks.

If you want to find out more about ebooks, DRM and why you will probably want to remove the DRM from your ebooks, see this post:  Ebook Formats, DRM and You — A Guide for the Perplexed.

If you already know that you want to strip the DRM from your ebooks, you’ve found the right place.

Anti-Piracy Notice

Please only use these tools for gaining full access to your own ebooks for archiving/conversion/convenience. De-drmed ebooks should not be uploaded to open servers, torrents, or other methods of mass distribution. No help will be given to people doing such things. Authors, retailers and publishers all need to make a living, so that they can continue to produce books for us to read. Don’t be a parasite.

Origin of the Tools

The tools for removing DRM from ePubs were originally posted at i♥cabbages’ blog. The tools for Kindle/Mobipocket were originally posted at The Dark Reverser’s blog.

They have since been improved by many people, but mostly some_updates, DiapDealer, Apprentice Alf, and Apprentice Harper. While there are many sites that redistribute these tools, the most up-to-date versions of the tools are currently released here.

Other Sources

Anyone trying to sell you ebook DRM removal tools for Adobe Adept ePub and PDFs, Barnes & Noble ePubs, Kindle ebooks, Kobo ebooks, or eReader ebooks has probably just repackaged (an earlier) version of the tools available here.

  1. Hello,

    I’ve installed the latest version of the DeDRM plugin to Calibre 5.18.0. I recently transferred a bunch of older book from a previous kindle (registered to another account I have no access to) to my computer, then to my kindle paperwhite. I saved the serial number of my paperwhite in the plugin’s customization window, however I wasn’t sure if the serial number is supposed to be from the kindle the book is going to or the kindle it was originally licensed to. I am unable to remove the DRM from my older books (awz3, not kfx). Before I post my log, I wanted to ask if there might be an issue with the serial number I used just in case. I figured there might be something fishy there!

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    • The DRM which needs to be removed will be associated with the device or app they were downloaded with. After DRM is removed, it can be read on whatever you want. So you need the serial number the books are from. Not the one they are going to.

      • That is correct, but it would also be easy to simply put both (or more) Kindle serial numbers in the DeDRM-Plugin Settings, even if one of them is not needed yet.

        Also, as a side effect, the transfered books from the old device should not work on the new device, imho
        – or the ones that work do not have DRM anyway.

        If there is a problem using a different Account for the old Kindle, the books can also not be downloaded from Amazon again.

  2. I posted a message recently with my own error message I received from an attempted installation. I’m logged in with my WordPress credentials but I haven’t seen it posted. Do I need to repost? I was afraid to do it again because I didn’t want to seem like I was spamming the comment section. Thanks!

    • This time when I hit the post button, it sent. I’m not sure what happened the last time.

      This is the error message I get when I attempt to install the plugin. I’ve been using this plugin for quite a while but I reformat my hard drive around once a year or so to get rid of bit-rot and such. It was installed on this computer before I re-installed Windows, so it’s not like I’m new to the plugin. Still, this is the error I get. Thank you for any input!

      • You need the latest version of the plugin for calibre 5.0. The one you’re trying to load is written in Python 2 and will only work with calibre 4.x (and earlier).

  3. Hi there,
    I’ve just freshly installed Adobe Digital Editions 4.5, Calibre 5.23, and the DeDRM plugin 7.2.1.
    I’ve used older versions successfully in the past, so I think I’ve got the method down. XD However, a book imported by .acsm into Digital Editions and then to Calibre, but Acrobat is still saying “… The security plug-in requires by this command is unavailable” when I try to open the file from the Calibre library.

    Here’s my debug data:

  4. I am having trouble getting mine to convert.
    I am running Windows 10.
    The ebook was purchased and downloaded from Google Books. I am trying to get them onto my Kindle.

    Hopefully that’s everything needed. This is my first time trying to use this, so I could easily be doing it wrong…

    • Looking at your log snippet, it looks as if you are trying to import The_Bridge_Kingdom-epub.acsm from your downloads folder. This is not an ebook but rather an Adobe Content Server Message file which tell ADE how to download the file and what rights you have on it. You will need to open that file with ADE to actually download the ebook. If you do not already have ADE installed, you will need to install and register it.

      • Thank you! I did have it installed and loaded the book with it, but couldn’t figure out what to do from there (or why it was even necessary…). Turns out they’re in my documents folder, and they work just fine! Appreciate the push in the right direction lol!

  5. Could anyone help me figure out what I need to do? I’m using a Windows 10 PC and the book is downloaded from Amazon. I’m trying to get it converted to a pdf so I can read it more easily zoomed in (text is super blurry zoomed into the original file).

    • “converted to a pdf so I can read it more easily zoomed in (text is super blurry zoomed into the original file).”

      This reads to me like you are already reading a PDF (inside an Amazon eBook container) – and with scanned pages.
      This is a guess, so I maybe wrong, but if this is the case, and you manage to strip DRM, and convert it to PDF, this will not solve your problem, you still look at images, which will blurr, when zoomed. OCR might help, but wether that is even possible?

      • yes, my thought was that it may be exactly as you described.

        re using OCR: back in the Groklaw days I processed some of their legal documents (on Linux), which were primarily scanned images inside a PDF like this:
        1. use pdf2tiff to create tiff images.
        2. use some custom scripts I had hacked together to run early releases of Google’s tesseract OCR on those tiff images.
        3. the results, of course, still required cleaning up due to the inevitable ‘scanos’. a lot of work was involved.

  6. I am trying to archive my Nook magazines from B&N. I get the epub from Nook for PC and can view, with that epub, the magazine in “page view”. When the epub ends up in Calibre, however, it’s only in “article view”. I heard that the page view is just a series of images which would have to be included in the original epub file.

    I’m wondering if the DRM removal tools also strips the “extra” pictures from the epub since they’re not technically part of the epub format. Is that possible? If so, is there a way to prevent that? Since I can’t get into the epub until after it’s been de-DRM’d and imported into Calibre, I can’t easily verify if it’s pictures of what.

    G

        • The files inside an ePub can be encrypted. But you mentioned being able to view the ePub in calibre, so there either was no DRM, or you’ve successfully removed it.

          • I’ve successfully removed it — and that’s when I think the images (that would look like they’re extra to an epub program) get removed. I was wondering if my guess is correct and if there were a way to prevent that from happening.

            • Have you unzipped the de-drmed ePub? (If not, do so and check whether the images in there somewhere)
              Is the size of the de-drmed ePub significantly smaller than the ePub with DRM? (If so, perhaps the images did get stripped. Try unzipping the DRMed ePub – images sometimes aren’t encrypted.)

              • Yea, after you last message I looked. The images were there (yay!) and I was able to read them. And yes, the calibre epub is notably smaller. So, is there a way to get the DRM app to not strip the images?

                • The DeDRM app does not strip images. If you import the original epub into calibre and check, the images should be there. I just checked on two epubs and the images in the original epub and the deDRMmed epub were close to identical in size (the ones with DRM could not be opened since they are encrypted). OTOH, if you are using calibre to convert epub to epub (or any other format), that’s a whole ‘nother can of worms and outside the focus of this blog.

  7. Hi, I tried importing a book recently downloaded. I followed all instructions and have Calibre 5.23 installed along with Kindle for PC 1.30.0 (59056). Directly after installing the programs I could download books from Amazon and was able to add them to Calibre without any problems, but when I tried again today the downloaded books were placed in a folder again and when I tried importing the .azw file I got a ‘DRM’ message. This is the information from the log:

  9. I’ve downloaded the latest tools for the DeDRM Calibre plugin, but I’m currently having problems with removing the DRM from a couple of Topaz files I’ve recently downloaded, or that’s what I’m guessing might be the problem. It used to be that importing Topaz files into Calibre worked fine, but now all I’m getting is “Could not convert the book because no supported source format was found”. What should I be doing that I’m not doing? Is this linked to DRM not being removed so that the Topaz file doesn’t become an HTML file, or something else? I wouldn’t ask except I need these two ebooks for work and find holding physical books hard to hold.

    • When calibre version 5 was released it changed the underlying software implementation from Python 2 to Python 3. This required updates to most plugins in order for them to work properly. DeDRM was updated to version 7 (currently 7.2.1) to work with calibre 5.

      Unfortunately, some infrequently used functionality, such as support for Topaz, has not yet been made to work in the new version. In order to import Topaz books you need to downgrade calibre to version 4.23 and install DeDRM 6.8.1. To ovoid compatibility problems do not install an version of calibre older than 4.23!

      https://download.calibre-ebook.com/4.23.0/

      https://github.com/apprenticeharper/DeDRM_tools/releases/tag/v6.8.1

  10. I’m completely new to all this. Have downloaded DeDRM tools 7.2.1, unzipped and cannot find a “DeDRM_calibre_plugin” folder, so obviously cannot find the DeDRM-plugin zip file in that folder. Also do not understand what an “archive” means.
    Can anyone help, instructions are very clear, but no calibre seen in DeDRM tools.

      • I know that, and have Calibre installed. My problem is that Alf’s bog says:
        “Download Apprentice Alf’s DRM removal tools for ebooks.” This comes as a .zip archive, so open it up and put the “DeDRM-calibre-plugin” folder where you can find it.”
        When I download Alf’s DRM removal tools for ebooks – I cannot find the “DeDRM_calibre_plugin” folder, it is simply not there.
        Any suggestions.

        • Open the FIRST zip file. In there should be another zip file labeled as the Calibre plugin. DO NOT OPEN THIS SECOND ZIP FILE; put the unopened file into Calibre.

          Yes, the instructions are very unclear on this but they refuse to rewrite them to make it clear. Hence the members hrere have to explain how to do it ad nauseum.

  11. Hi,
    I used to run de-DRM no problem and have run into trouble the last couple years. I deregistered my kindle for mac, deleted it/the content folders, redownloaded it/ my books, and tried to import into the latest version of calibre with the latest version of deDRM. I’m running Mac OS 10.15.7. I would really like to get these books deDRM-ed so I can listen to them text to speech.
    Here’s my error log:

  12. Hi,
    I used this till maybe 2018 when it stopped working on my Mac. I’m running Mac OS 10.15.7, the latest version of calibre, and the latest version of the deDRM plugin. I have also deregistered my old kindle for mac, deleted the app/content folders, emptied the trash, redownloaded the app, and reimported my books into calibre fresh… (I did delete them all from the calibre content library.)

    • Decrypting Topaz ebook: Urban Ministry: The Kingdom, the City & the People of God

      This book appears to be in Topaz format, which tools 7.2.1 have trouble with. You might try going back to Calibre 4.23 and tools 6.8.1.

  13. Hi, I’ve tried a bunch of times and not able to remove DRM from my kindle books using the plugin – I have a feeling it might have to do with the “key” step, as I’m not totally sure I understand the “managing keys for mac/pc kindle” documentation page.

    which tool was used: Calibre (GUI), version 5.25, Kindle for Mac 1.31, having run the chmod -x /Applications/Kindle.app/Contents/MacOS/renderer-test , deleting and redownloading ebooks, DeDRM tools 7.2.1
    which OS you are using: MacOS Catalina 10.15.6
    where the ebook file came from (device or application): Kindle for Mac 1.31
    any error messages: just a “Could not remove DRM from this device”
    a log of the DRM-removal attempt (see the FAQs on how to get a log) -see below.

    Thanks for any help!!!

    Here is the log when I try and convert, and then open within calibre:

    • DeDRM v7.2.1: Trying to decrypt qa7sq_th.azw

      The filename is a little odd. Where did this book come from? Is it a library book or Kindle Unlimited or some variation of a rental by any chance? If so, that might be the problem.

        • Did you try downgrading to Calibre 4.23 and tools 6.8.1 to see if that will work? And a clean install of K4Mac (delete the app itself and User > Library > Application Support > Kindle folder or Application Support > Containers > com.amazon.Kindle)?

          This ebook is also part of the “Great on Kindle” program, which may have something to do with it.

          Finally, there are a lot of error messages in the log that I’m not familiar with. Hopefully someone else more familiar with error messages will come along and help.

        • One last note — you deleted the book from K4Mac and Calibre and then re-imported it into K4Mac and then Calibre before trying to convert, yes? Removal of DRM happens on import, so if you didn’t delete the book and re-import it before trying to convert, that may be the problem.

            • You should also delete the ebooks from Calibre and re-import into Calibre each time. You did that, yes?

              Anyway, try downgrading to Calibre 4.23 and tools 6.8.1. If that doesn’t work, post a log from Calibre 4.23.

              Tools 7.2.1 sometimes has trouble getting the key from K4Mac. If you downgrade, 6.8.1 will retrieve the key, then you can upgrade back up to 7.2.1.

  14. Hi,
    I unsuccessfully tried DeDRM with callbre and Kindle for mac versions 1.31 and 1.26.1 (the oldest version I could run on macOS Catalina) but no luck. Log and other info is below.. thank you for any help!!!

    which tool was used: calibre 5.25; DeDRM 7.2.1 (restarted Calibre gui after installing plugin.. though I am not sure I did the customize then “key” action right? The documentation about generating keys I could not really understand…)
    which OS you are using: MacOS Catalina 10.15.6
    where the ebook file came from (device or application): Kindle for Mac v 1.31 and 1.26.1 – ran the sudo chmod … /renderer-test command each time before downloading books.
    any error messages: in calibre, after I try and open in viewer, says that there is DRM on the book when I try and open in the Calibre viewer.

    • DeDRM v7.2.1: Trying to decrypt B08LLD7QM5_EBOK.azw … Ben Fletcher

      Where did this ebook come from? When I search B08LLD7QM5, there are no results on Amazon. When I search “Ben Fletcher” it’s only available in print, not ebook.

      • I don’t know what to say, I did buy it on amazon! The exact same thing happens with all my other books too, this was just an example I used running in debug mode. It was there as an ebook in January of this year and I have a receipt. Any other thoughts? Thanks.

        • By the way, you did already try this with Calibre 4.23 and tools 6.8.1, right? That should be one of the first things you try, as noted above. If that doesn’t work, post a log from Calibre 4.23/tools 6.8.1

    • Mac users have trouble with the initial key retrieval on DeDRM 7.2.1. Try calibre 4.23 and DeDRM 6.8.1. If you get things working with those versions, you should be able to return to the current versions.

  17. Hi,

    I have Kindle for PC v1.32 on Window 10 v1909. I first disabled KFX format by running Kindle.cmd batch file. Checked in Registry Editor that isKRFDRendererSupported is false. Then a test, I downloaded a book as via Kindle, there’re 4 files (*.apnx, *.azw, *.mbpV2 & *.phl) in one folder that’s apparently designated for that book.

    I also have a Mac w/Big Sur v11.5.2 where Calibre v5.25 is installed, along w/DeDRM v7.2. I was able to add the test book (the aforementioned folder w/4 files in it) in Calibre, able to see the author info, format as “AZW”, & its own cover image. But when I go to convert the book, it fails & says “The book is locked by DRM”. No detail error message in debug file but below lines:

    This debug folder contains snapshots of the e-book as it passes through the
    various stages of conversion. The stages are:

    1. input - This is the result of running the input plugin on the source
    file. Use this folder to debug the input plugin.
    
    2. parsed - This is the result of preprocessing and parsing the output of
    the input plugin. Note that for some input plugins this will be identical to
    the input sub-folder. Use this folder to debug structure detection,
    etc.
    
    3. structure - This corresponds to the stage in the pipeline when structure
    detection has run, but before the CSS is flattened. Use this folder to
    debug the CSS flattening, font size conversion, etc.
    
    4. processed - This corresponds to the e-book as it is passed to the output
    

    plugin. Use this folder to debug the output plugin.

    I wonder if it’s because I didn’t configure DeDRM w/Kindle device serial #, since I currently don’t own a Kindle e-ink reader.

    Or is it because both of my laptop OS are in 64-bit, the latest version, and Calibre DRM removal plugging doesn’t work well in that computer environment?

    I don’t want to downgrade OS on either of the laptop. What should I do? Should I just buy a Kindle e-ink device so that I can use “Download & transfer via USB” via Amazon website to get AZW3 file for the book? But will DeDRM v7.2 in Calibre v5.25 work well on AZW3 file when OS is 64-bit? ​

    BTW, I tried my luck w/Epubor Ultimate, installed on Mac, v3.0.13.812. Same results “Kindle DRM Removal failed!”

    Last but not the least, I bought the book via Amazon, it’s NOT a rented book.

  18. Each installation of Kindle for Pc/Mac has its own encryption key. You can’t download on one computer and decrypt on another.

  19. My apologies for the length of this message: there are two logs at the bottom.

    I have some books bought from Kobo that don’t properly decrypt with Obok. Actually I’ve had this happen a few times before with Manga, but this is the first time with plain English text.

    The symptoms are that the book is allegedly successfully decrypted, but there is no cover page (so it gets a generic one from calibre), and opening the book reveals that it is complete garbage. Unpacking the epub and looking at the .htm files confirms that they are just garbage.

    The book itself in Kobo is fine – Kobo Desktop reads it without problem.

    Looking at the debug logs, I see that there are 12 encryption keys to try, and on the bad book, the second one “works” as in, produces a valid UTF-8 sequence. Comparing with the import of a book that actually works, it is the 9th key that works.

    My (confident) conjecture is that Obok’s algorithm for detecting successful decryption is defective in that it accepts an unsuccessful decryption. Perhaps instead of merely checking for a valid UTF-8 sequence, it should check that the text looks like XML or HTML, e.g. starting with ‘<?xml’ (the first character in that string is a less-than sign). Perhaps the best way would be to go through all the encryption keys with a strict check for XML output, and only if one is not found, go through again with the current permissive check.

    I’d try this myself, but my python skills are pretty poor (yes I am a programmer, no I don’t use python at work), so this will take some time and I may not succeed.

    Or perhaps someone has a better idea as to what is going wrong, or a suggestion of something else to try.

    Now the logs: first, the one for a decryption that produces garbage:

    So is it missing a keylist?

  21. Hi,

    I’ve been using the dedrm plugin successfully for several months but now it is only working on EPUB files and some but not all ASW3 files. All are books I’ve purchased not rented. If anyone has an idea why this is happening, I’d appreciate it.

  22. Hi, I’m having a problem with some awz3 files. This one is acquired thru Amazon by the “download via USB” option. Am running the latest versions available: Calibre 5.26.0 and DeDRM 7.2.1. I have tried the combination of Calibre 4.23.0 with DeDRM 6.8.1, but it didn’t work either. Am using Windows 10. Log below. Thanks

  23. I’m running the latest edition of both Calibre and the DeDrm plugin on Windows10 but I’m still having trouble with some of my awz3 files not unlocking. I’ve entered my Kindle serial number as well and the problem is still occurring. This is my error log. Thanks in advance!

  24. I am having issues and cant seem to work out how to get it to work. I have Calibre 5.26 and downloaded Alf’s 7.2.1 and followed the instructions. I have generated a error log in debug mode and am not smart enough to work out what it says BUT it does say this “Exception: Incorrect padding – Wrong key” a couple of times and also says “Exception: Failed to decrypt KFX DRM voucher with any key” that in the last line. Does this mean the serial number I put in for the kindle is wrong?… I am almost positive I typed it in correctly and I am sure it is the kindle I selected to send the book to when I purchased it off Amazon. (I have a heap of kindles all associated with my account) However if someone can tell me that my problem is definately an issue with the wrong serial number for my kindle I can then look into this further and maybe put in all the serial numbers for all my kindles in AND/OR I could change all the zero’s in my kindle serial to the letter O’s in case this is the issue?? Thanks for any help!

  25. DeDRM 7.2.1, Calibre 5.26, kindle keyboard with extracted serial number.

    I got the file from my kindle keyboard and after that method didnt work I downloaded it directly from amazon for manual upload.

    • With a Kindle Keyboard, you should be able to decrypt either the file directly from the device or the one downloaded from the website for transfer via USB. Be sure you have the Kindle’s serial number entered correctly into DeDRM’s customization.

    • Considering the occurrence of “%1 is not a valid Win32 application”, I would suspect that something in your calibre installation has been corrupted.

  26. Under Eink Kindle Serial Numbers:”Z000Z0Z000000ZZZ” I just replaced all letters with Z and all numbers with 0. I also followed this file:///C:/Users/Jonat/AppData/Roaming/calibre/plugins/DeDRM/help/DeDRM_EInk%20Kindle%20Serial%20Number_Help.htm when looking it up.

    • Easiest way to get the serial number in correctly is to copy and paste it from the website. But I agree with DNSB’s comment that something else must be going on from that log. DeDRM says it’s trying to decrypt your book, but there’s nothing else about it checking keys or looking for them. Then there’s usually a clear indication of success or failure to decrypt before it says the book is added. Can we see a log without your Kindle plugged in?

  27. Hello… Not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but what is the recommended Kindle for Mac version for someone running calibre 5.27 on the latest Mac OS? Thanks!

  28. Hi everyone.. anyone?
    I did post my issue in an earlier post but probably didnt supply enough information for anyone to help so I thought I would post again with the error log to see if anyone can help me. thanks in advance.
