Could you please open a ticket with the PDB's dropbook created that won't convert in calibre. Along with the exact error message.

Dropbook has very very specific requirements for PML files.

Technically yes, it does not conform to the spec. However, the issues you are running into are probably something really simple like the character encoding being wrong. Dropbook requires the file to be cp1252. calibre is much more liberal with what it accepts for PML.

Yes.
