I have yet to remove one DRM for Nook. I have downloaded the Nook App for my PC and entered my credentials which BN will not recognize. I even changed my password to ensure that wasn't the problem. Clearly, Nook is no longer supporting login to remove DRMs. I was dubious about purchasing your product since it still refers to Nook Study which no longer works but I took a chance anyway. Now, I'm out $25 and my books are all still DRM'd like they were after using the free calibre plug-in. My fault. But, for other Nook users trying these steps, they currently don't work. If you Google it there is evidence all over the internet that currently, no one knows how to remove a Nook DRM.

What's the kindle for pc/mac version are you using now? If you are using kindle version 1.25 or later, the kindle books are encrypted with new kindle drm which not any software can handle. Please downgrade your kindle version to 1.24 or older and then use epubor software to remove the drm. If you need any further support, please contact our technical support via email support@epubor.com
