« on: September 13, 2012, 05:55 PM »
I just discovered several books by fav authors in mobi files....I have a nook and need to convert the files to epub and know that you can use a program called calibre to do so BUT I can not figure out if 1. Calibre works on a nook (read varying reports) and 2. How this is done!!!!  I really have searched  google, calibre, and pts looking for answers......help anyone???

I mostly do calibre in my laptop then transfer it to my phone to read. It is quite easy. Just add the books, then select the books you wanted to convert and click the "convert books" something would pop out and you could choose what format in the upper right corner of it then click convert.

Pretty much what Lex said.
Step by step:
Put Calibre on your computer.

Download the books you want and add them to Calibre [there is an add books button on the top]

Once added use the convert books  button.

Calibre will convert to the chosen format.

Upload the books from your computer to your Nook to read.

IF you are buying something with a DRM like a file from Amazon, get the plug ins from the forum topic here about DRM Removal.  Add them to Calibre then add the book. Then simply convert.

For example, I buy Amazon and add them to Kindle for PC.  Since my Ereader is not a Kindle, I convert them by that method to a format I can use on my ereader.  I have to strip the DRM to read them on my reader.
