Incidentally, are all those dozens of gif files really necessary, or are they part of the welcome/readme files? Makes it hard to find anything in that directory!

(I'm using Windows Explorer to drag&drop, from one directory to the other. Is that what I'm supposed to be doing?)

Thanks!
OP:

Actually, I have no idea, as I never use them. I mean...an ePUB is a zipped file, and it works a treat on KG. I pretty much went from originally making prc's way back directly to epub, thence to KG/Previewer; I never went the "zipped html folder" route, myself; we all work fairly directly in xhtml-->ePUB-->mobi. I don't see why KG would not accept a zipped file, actually, but it mightn't be a supported file format. (In the alternative, drop the OPF on KG--I know that works and shouldn't be very different than what you're doing--should actually save you...3 steps, I think).

@sarafnikit: Sorry--what is it you are asking? There are others (try the mobiunpack thread) who are FAR more expert than I in the inner, proprietary workings of KindleGen/Previewer/mobi.

HTH,
Hitch
