Convert ACSM to EPUB and Remove DRM

Posted by on .

We often download an .ACSM file after purchasing an eBook online, but it's not the eBook file. Here I will tell you how to convert ACSM to EPUB and PDF, then strip eBook DRM for reading on various devices.

How to Convert ACSM to EPUB books

Step 1 Download Adobe Digital Editions 2.0 (ADE).

Step 2 Register an Adobe Account, authorize your ADE Copy with your Adobe Account.

Step 3Open .ACSM with authorized Digital Editions to download eBooks.

Double click the .ACSM file, it will be opened with Adobe Digital Editions as default. And a window will be opened to show the downloading eBook (Network connection is needed).

If your .ACSM file is not opened by ADE as default, right click the file and select "Open with" -> "Adobe Digital Editions 2.0 ".

Output EPUB path of ADE is generally as follows.

For Windows: ...\My Documents (Documents)\My Digital Editions ...

For Mac: Users/Your computer name/Digital Editions ...

Or you can switch to "File" Menu -> "Item Info" -> "Location" to check the location of your downloaded EPUB book.

After downloading the eBook, you can delete the .ACSM or back it up for downloading the eBook again.

We can read the converted EPUB eBooks on Adobe supported devices like Sony eReader, Kobo reader, Android Devices (with reading apps like BlueFire installed) etc. Just copy the converted EPUB files to the specified eBook folder of your device with the USB cable connected to your computer. Make sure your eReader is authorized with the same Adobe account, otherwise you will be prohibited to open the EPUB books.

However, you can't directly read the books on Apple Devices (iPad, iPod, iPhone with iBooks) and Amazon Kindle titles. So we have to remove DRM from the eBooks, then transfer to anywhere as you like. Here is the best software for removing DRM from Adobe DRM protected ePUB.

How to remove DRM from ACSM (EPUB)

Step 1: Download Epubor EPUB DRM Removal.

Windwos Version Download Mac Version Download

Step 2: Run this program, if your EPUB files are converted from ACSM as the guide above, the program will find your EPUB files automatically. All you need to do is click the "Remove" DRM button.

More about ACSM file extension

The ACSM file type is primarily associated with 'Adobe Digital Editions' by Adobe. If your computer is asking you where to save the .ACSM file then your Adobe Digital Editions may not be installed correctly or not yet authorized. Often you can solve this issue by simply setting your computer to always use Adobe Digital Editions to open this type of file. (Right click an .ACSM file -> "Properties" -> "General" -> "Change" -> "Adobe Digital Editions 2.0" -> "OK")

convert ACSM to EPUB - always open with ADE

I have read this information before with Adobe digital. Perhaps Adobe Digital is not installed corrctly.
I did not see a software to remove DRM.  You mentioned being the best software but did not give the name.

Your instructions are easy to understand and I have followed them.  My problem is adding the ebooks to Calibre.  I cannot open them there and I also am unable to download from ADE to my Sony reader.  I am not computer literate so many things are not as simple as they seem.  I read that I should be able to download to my reader from ADE but I see nothing to tell me that I can.

Hi Clemira,
We are very sorry for the late reply.
Calibre is not able to add your books because your books are DRM protected, Calibre is only able to handle those DRM-free eBooks.

Now have you get the .ePub files or still .acsm files?

"the program will find your EPUB files automatically."

I bought a Google E-book (acsm file) and opened it in ADE, but apparently the file hasn't turned into an EPUB file; instead, it appears as a .pdf file instead. I tried putting ".epub" at the end of the file name, but the program failed in removing the DRM.

How do I solve this???

Hi Louise,

Yes sometimes the .acsm will give a PDF file.

Then you need to use our Adobe EPUB&PDF DRM Removal, it can handle both EPUB and PDF files.
