View Full Version : Creator "Warning" problems with Creator

07-04-2008, 09:21 AM

I joined today hoping someone will be able to help me resolving the problem I'm having with this software. Any file (html, doc or rtf) I'm trying to convert into a MobiReader file gives me the same "warnings" at the end of the "Build" process :

Warning (prcgen) : image file not found C:\...... (path) .....\ imagename.jpg or gif

When I'm checking the path, the images are THERE !

Opening the HTML file in the path evrything is fine; the images are shown.
Transfering the PRC file to me Palm TX they don't appear.....

Where does this error come from - What should I do?

Try shortening the path, I'm guessing you're probably using a long pathname, try putting everything in something like C:\Temp and working from there and seeing if it handles that more easily.

When you import a HTML into MobiPocket Creator it makes a copy of the file in its own directory. The images are probably referenced relative to the file location, so you need to move them too. If they are in the same directory as the original HTML, just add them to the ebook using Creator's "Add File (Item)" option. If they are in a subdirectory (e.g. images/0001.jpg) you will have to find the directory that Creator is using and make a copy of the original images directory there yourself.

Thank you for your answers.

Seawolf, I tried a shortened pathway but it doesn't work any better.

Wallcraft, my problem mainly comes when I try to convert .doc files. I tried your solution after converting it into an html file and put the images into the right path. Unfortunately it doesn't work. When I'm trying to do it from original .html files, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.....So I really wonder where the problem comes from.

Move or copy your image files to the folder MobiCreator makes, it's usually in My Publications. I have to do that with every book that contains images.

Thanks for your advice TallMomof2. I've already done it, but unfortunately it doesn't work ! I extracted the images from .doc files using photoshop and transfered the to mobicreator path where they weren't "recognized".

Do they have the correct name? If you are 'looking' for cover.jpg and there is only a cover.gif in the directory you will get the warning. I'm asking this because you were using Photoshop to extract hem. So you can save them in any format and with any name you like
