The book itself is ok when reading in the k4pc app, but something is happening upon import to Calibre. I'm running Calibre version 0.9.2.

Does anyone know what could be causing this and are there any solutions?

I did uninstall the k4pc app and reinstalled it, but to no avail. I didn't deregister the app from Amazon though. Don't know if that makes a difference or not.

Thanks in advance for your help.
Does your book have a lot of pictures in it? If not then just load the book into Calibre, go to your Calibre Library (C://users etc) & copy the book into another folder, go to the copy of the book and change the extension from azw3 to mobi or prc (whichever you prefer), delete the book from calibre, add the mobi or prc extension book and convert that. I've done it several times and the only time it didn't work is if the book was basically all pictures.
