I used epubor to turn my kindle e-books into epub as well as pdf format to read them on my remarkable 2. It all worked fine, however when I put the newly created epub file on my remarkable it doesn´t show the cover correctly, it just shows a nearly empty box. Pdf works fine. However I would prefer to read my e-books in epub over pdf as the font is bigger and the format is made to be read on a smaller device. But not having the book covers visable really bugs me.
Do you know any way to fix this so that I can view the cover in the epub version on my remarkable as well?

I have the same issue.  Did you ever receive a reply or solve this problem?
08/4/2021 23:31:08
Would like to purchase a reMarkable 2 but this complexity to read Kindle Books, no ability to browse and search on the device, and eliminating functionality of my Kindle Subscription make this a no-go.  What eReader/Note Taker would you recommend 2nd to the reMarkable?   Any that have no backlight and paper feel?
11/1/2021 03:06:30
Does not work at all. The software makes "trials" of all ebooks. So 1 page without use
11/2/2021 09:32:18

Thank you for using our software. Please note Epubor software is the paid software with free trial version. So the trial works well on all your books, the licensed version will allow you obtain the whole content of your ebook in its original quality and formatting.

If you have any issue on using this software, please feel free to contact us via support@epubor.com.

If this product would work with Kindle Ebooks seamlessly I would get it. Your biggest contender is a kindle that unless you fix this issue you can't beat.
01/10/2022 04:34:46
Without a license, it's useless. It only save 20% of the ebook content. :(
04/1/2022 13:48:12
After purchasing this software, I initially had problems because I downloaded the newest version of Kindle software on my PC. However, this website offers so many ways to troubleshoot those problems yourself. I'm really not very tech savvy but the step-by-step instructions, with images, make the troubleshooting incredibly easy! I am absolutely ecstatic. The software is great, and the website is user-friendly which makes this the perfect option for file conversion/DRM removal.
