I have the original books in various native formats (epub etc) on an external drive, but would like to avoid having to convert them, in case of computer crash/hard drive failure etc.

thanks in advance
If any of your Mobipocket eBooks have DRM and your computer crashes and/or your hard drive needs replacing, they will no longer work as the PID i tied to the system you are using now. The solution is to strip the DRM and then back them up. Have a Googling session for Apprentice Alf.

The Mobipocket eBooks are stored on C:\Users\<user>\Documents\My eBooks This is where they would be in Vista or Windows 7. Windows XP your on your own.
