ACSM DRM Removal Download, Remove ACSM DRM

Posted by on .
How do I remove DRM from ACSM file? I want to bypass the adobe drm and read my acsm file on my Kindle device.

An ACSM file is not an actual eBook but just a file download link. You need to use this acsm link to download the actual books. When you download ACSM file to real content, in most cases they will also be encrypted with Adobe DRM (Digital Right Management). So you need some DRM removal tools to remove the DRM. When you purchase ebooks from online stores, you may often get acsm files. But many people don't know how to deal with it. So you'll discover the best ACSM DRM Removal and the detailed steps to remove DRM from ACSM files.

Part 1. Open ACSM file and download ACSM file to epub/pdf

ACSM files are not actual books so that you cannot open and read them directly. First you need to get the actual books with the help of Adobe Digital Editions. How to do it? Please follow the below steps.

1Download and install Adobe Digital Editions.

2Authorize your computer with an Adobe ID.

If you are not informed to authorize ADE when you open it for the first time, you can go to Help >> Authorize Computer to authorize it manually.

If you have an Adobe ID already, just enter the email and password directly. If not, you can create an new Adobe ID instead.

3 Open ACSM in Adobe Digital Editions.

Find your .acsm file, double-click it and then ADE will download the book automatically. Double click an .acsm file, then a window pops up showing the downloading progress. When the process is finished, the book will be saved in epub or pdf format.

After downloading the books, you can read them in ADE on your computer. You can also transfer them to other devices to read. But these devices must be Adobe supported ones such as Kobo and Sony eReader. And you need to make sure that they are registered with the same Adobe ID..

ACSM files are always protected by Adobe DRM. Even if we can open them in ADE and transfer them to other ereaders, the DRM restriction still exists. It means that we can open them on very limited Adobe supported devices and these devices must be with the same Adobe ID.

If the Adobe DRM is not removed, it would be never possible for us to read these books on other devices like Kindle, iPhone, iPad and etc.

So if you wish to open and read acsm files on any device as you like, the best way is to remove the DRM from acsm files, or to be more accurate, to remove Adobe DRM from the epub or pdf books. And next I will recommend the best ACSM DRM removals to you.

But how do we find the book's file after Adobe Digital Edition has downloaded it?

What a complete waste of time. Epubor is NOT free. It will appear to work, but will only decrypt/convert 20% of the book, and will ask you to register (for $29.99). If it is suppose to be free why not put the instructions on the list.  Plonkers

Most every program on the internet saying they can do something for "Free" is never really free. One always expects to pay for something.... MY QUESTION... is this program worth the $26?????
If it is... well worth it. There is always a cost so expect that. Is this program worth the $26? If so, stop complaining. If not... talk your talk

This product no longer works on ascm.  You get an error, then it tells you to load the pdf.  Noone from their help department answers why it changed.

Epubor software supports acsm drm, but please ensure your books can be read with your adobe digital editions on your computer at first. Also, please tell us where did you purchase this book? Then we will help you check whether this adobe drm is supported by our software.
