Libby files to calibre?
#1  kakkalla 05-27-2020, 03:23 AM
I have downloaded Libby to my iPad as it makes it so much easier to find and borrow books from my library.

Is it possible to transfer Libby's files to calibre?

I tried a file browsing app that looks at the contents of the iPad, and I found a folder named Libby, but there was nothing in the folder. I am not sure if that is because the software was in trial mode or not.

Thanks.

Maybe via the Overdrive Link plugin ==>> Index of plugins

The Overdrive Link plugin allows searching of library sites to find books to borrow. It does not have anything to do with the reading or borrowing process.

I do not know of anything that can help you with Libby. I do know that the documentation for plugin most commonly used for DRM removal say that it is not intended for use on borrowed or rented books, such as library books, and that you are unlikely to receive assistance if you attempt to use it for that purpose.

the books that you have checked out on Libby can also be checked out as epub using ADE on a PC. they will have ADOBE drm
but you can copy the DRMd epub into calibre if you really want to , or do whatever you would usually do with such books
its daft to try to retrieve the book from libby + Ipad when you can simply check it out again but this time to PC , or probably to MAC.
connect to your libraries digital web site- log in and you should see the books under " loans"

there is no trial mode with libby - its a free app, made by overdrive, for android & IOS. works with any library where you have an account, so long as that library uses overdrive. it also syncs between devices if you have it installed in 2 places.. the actual book files are probably well protected and well hidden. and they auto-expire.
