I have a problem opening SOME large .mobi files in Calibre

Hi, I have imported a New Oxford Dictionary from Kindle for PC to Calibre and I have a Merriam-Webster collegiate dictionary which I imported into both kindle and Calibre. Both of these dictionaries are around 25MB. I can open both of these files in Kindle for PC, but can't open neither of them in Calibre. I have a DRM removal plugins installed. Here is the error I get when I try opening one of them:

Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\viewer\main.py", line 40, in run
  File "threading.py", line 504, in run
  File "site-packages\calibre\ebooks\oeb\iterator\book.py", line 99, in __enter__
  File "site-packages\calibre\customize\conversion.py", line 239, in __call__
  File "site-packages\calibre\ebooks\conversion\plugins\mobi_input.py", line 34, in convert
  File "site-packages\calibre\ebooks\mobi\reader\mobi6.py", line 171, in extract_content
  File "re.py", line 151, in sub
MemoryError
It is telling me that I have a memory error, but I have 4GB of RAM on my PC.

I have other .mobi ebooks in my Calibre library which are large in size, but I don't have any problems opening them.
