I had the program working fine and converted a few mobi books with no problems. Suddenly, mobi2html seems to not be responding. It makes an unpack folder and that's about it. I even tried to convert the books I had already converted and it does the same thing.

Here's a pic of where it stops:

Did you try using mobi2oeb (part of Calibre) or mobihuff (another python script floating around)? The book may be compressed, and mobi2html doesn't work on the compressed books. The error message usually says so, though, so I may be wrong.

I think mobi2oeb works on everything that's not DRM'd, though.

I can convert with mobihuff but I get no images.

As I said, I had no problems before (had only 2 books that couldn't be decompressed--it had an error message about huff compression). And I tried to convert books I already had success with and it just stopped.

mobi2html works on standard compressed books. But it does not work if the secret huffdic compression scheme have been used. Sometimes I might include huffdic support but I personally feel that books should not be compressed in that format since it is not documented.

Have you seen Ebook::Tools (http://search.cpan.org/dist/EBook-Tools/lib/EBook/Tools/Mobipocket.pm#Record_format)?

I have not looked at it yet. It is on the TODO-list.
