Frequently Asked Questions
Q1: Where are Kindle titles stored after I downloaded them via Amazon Cloud Reader Chrome?

A: For being able to read on devices where the Cloud Reader doesn't work and for having a copy in an open format (WebSQL file), most of us will want to find the location where the KCR books are stored (works with Chrome/Chromium).

Step 2. Extract Kindle Books from Kindle Cloud Reader to PDF

As what I described in step 1, all the kindle titles that we downloaded from Kindle Cloud Reader Chrome browser are saved in a folder named "https_read.amazon.com_0". When we opened this folder, we will find 2 files (if you have already downloaded some books via KCR). In fact the larger one includes the real Kindle titles. They are html format files.

But, what a pity you can't open those HTML files! Here comes the Epubor KCR Converter tool.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q1: Does Epubor KCR Converter work for Firefox or IE browser KCR?

A: Though Kindle Cloud Reader works well on Chrome, IE, Safari and Firefox, but for now this recommended tool KCR Converter only supports Chrome KCR.

Q2: Not all purchased Kindle books can be open via Kindle Cloud Reader. Then, how to convert them to PDF?

A: Some books especially those novels with long texts can't be open via KCR. book can't be open via Kindle Cloud Reader

A way to check if a book's type is compatible with Kindle Cloud Reader is by visiting Kindle book's product page. On the right side, there is a "Deliver to..." option under the "Buy Now" button. From the drop down menu if you can see "Kindle Cloud Reader" listed, it means you are able to read the book on KCR.am I able to read one book on KCR

If not, the book can't be read on KCR, so the KCR Converter can't help you extract them. You should use Kindle desktop app first, then use Epubor Ultimate or Calibre to help remove DRM and convert formats.

Q3: Can Calibre or Epubor Ultimate help convert Kindle Cloud Reader books?

A: Epubor KCR Converter is the first and unique tool in the market that works directly on exporting kindle books from KCR. Neither Calibre nor Epubor Ultimate has this function. But if you sync and download kindle titles via Kindle desktop app or Kindle eReaders, you can use these 2 tools.

Q4: When should I use KCR Converter and when to use the Epubor Ultimate?

A: If you succeeded to download & pin books via KCR, you can use KCR Converter. If not, you should use Epubor Ultimate (or other similar tools).

Say more, if your Mac computer has been updated to 10.15 Catalina, the only way to backup your kindle books is using this KCR Converter because neither epubor ultimate nor calibre dedrm is able to rip the latest kindle drm.

Asks you to uninstall your Amazon reader and install an older version. Result looks borderline unreadable. "Trial" version does not list limitations online, but tells you AFTER you tried converting to PDF, INSIDE the resulting PDF that it only gives 20 percent of it, in an invalid format.

It seems you are using the trial version. If you are using the licensed version, you will get the full content in its original format.

Absolutely worthless software. Downgraded Kindle from 1.25 to 1.17 as requested by the software and I still received bugs when converting Kindle ebooks.

My suggestion to you is buy Epubor Ulimate is well worth the money.I am only a customer nothing to do with the company
but I have had this software for many years it’s brilliant I use it regularly as I like to have my books on my IPad so change the
various formats to epub.I buy books and expect to be able to do what ever I want with my property and not be dictated to my ebook sellers

Very helpful guide that resolved my problem. Thank you dear.
05/16/2019 04:29:17
is this process legal?
I would need it for personal use, not for sharing with others.
I prefer PDFs format to take note, copy and paste to translate, etc...
05/31/2019 13:45:04

For personal use please.

And if in fact, the drm removing is based on your kindle account or your kindle e-ink device KSN.
