However as you have a workaround of adding as a zip then that is even better.
I'm happier now that I've found a way to actually tell Calibre about the files - I wasn't entirely confident trusting to it renaming rather than recreating the directory.

That also occurred to me after I'd posted. I've only got a few audio books at the moment, and none of them are in HTML format. To prevent problems in future, though, I've decided to use .tar as a format for audio books, so that I can have both HTML and audio versions of a book if I wish.

I don't mind having to uncompress them in order to play them. At the end of the day, Calibre isn't designed or intended to deal with audio or paper books, so I don't mind some limitations with those, but I like having all my books managed in one place.

Thanks again for your help.
