I have a kindle and a kobo. I am trying to switch permanently from my kindle to my kobo which I will make my new ereader because it has many other options as well ( the tablet offerings). I have downloaded the epub mobi,az, etc. converter and epub master. I need to remove the kindle DRM to be able to move the kindle books to the kobo. Everything I read makes it seem so straightforward yet, there must be one thing I am missing. I have searched mefi for answers but am not finding anything that helps. Within my reading, it appears that using those programs you add the file and it converts it, super easy. Mine are not converting.

Maybe someone here has a similar problem. The kobo is more of an "Indy" reader and I wanted to make a move from my kindle and support them but it seems that kindle has such a huge monopoly that it perhaps was not worth leaving the kindle and I should have upgraded. I also hoped to share books with my mum who is on a kindle. Why is this so difficult? I also used calibre and added the plugin, I have been using calibre for years and I'm surprise it is coming up with so many errors as well. Many times people make these suggestions that I do not understand so If you " dumb this down" it may help!!( no shame!)
