    So I got a Barnes and Noble gift card from my aunt and uncle and thought, "Oh, cool, I can use it on some books for my new Kindle." Well I got home, and figured out, the Kindle (Fire) doesn't support .epub. So I open trusty 'ol Calibre and try to convert it. DRM said no. Then I googled for a DRM remover, and what else other than something I have to pay for. The only free thing required a credit card number in the end, so now I'm stuck with a book that I can't even read. So does ANYONE know a working, and FREE, DRM remover so I can actually convert it?

    I think http://zamzar.com doesn't check for DRM so you should be able to convert your epub to a pdf using that...I think..

    Kindle Fire's an Android device, so you should be able to download an app to read epubs. I know Aldiko does it, although I'm not sure how well it supports DRM-protected stuff. It's free, too.

    Well zamzar encountered a problem, and I was hoping just to be able to read the book straight from my Kindle...
