Mobi in Kindle for PC

I don't know if I'm just missing something, but I can't get any non-Amazon mobi files to open in Kindle for PC. I convert from HTML to MOBI via Calibre, and then transfer the created MOBI file to the Kindle folder on my laptop. When I open that file, it opens Kindle for PC, but then the file disappears from the Kindle folder, and never opens in the software.

Is this a new restriction from Amazon, or is there some simple thing I'm not aware of?

EDIT: I just tried to open a Manybooks.net MOBI file, and experienced the same problem.
