I have purchased an eBook. But the authors are using unreasonable protection. It will not work on any other computer. There is no option to print it. So when I change my computer I will have wasted my money in buying the ebook.

I need to be able to study the ebook at my leisure and also in the future. Therefore I need to print it out.

Anyone know of any ways that will allow me to print it?

I am running XP Pro with SP2.

Open the ebook and try ctrl P
That should open the print dialog box.

That does not work with this item.

Anyone have any more ideas?

The sort command might work. It would rewrite the ebook from one file to another.

sort c:\ebook c:\ebook2 or whatever the path is.

Disableling print seems unreasonable for ebook author, but is protection from someone pirating the book. Usually the author would let you print at least a page at a time, but I guess not this time.

Like you, I always want to print things for easier reading. About the only thing you can do is a screen capture of the page.

Every Windows PC comes with MS Paint. You can press the PrtScr key on your keyboard, then open Paint and past the image there.

A much better way is to capture the page with a program called SnagIt. Its around thirty dollars and worth every penny. It can even capture a scrolling window, which if the book is pdf and the page is long, that would be a great feature to have.

Hope this helps you.
