Help! Conversion failing...

...and I'm not smart enough to figure out what's wrong.

I have an epub book I'd like to convert to mobi, but I'm getting a failure to convert message.

Can someone walk me through what I might be doing wrong? Keep in mind I'm a bit of a luddite.

I'm guessing your ePub is corrupt. It is unable to unzip the epub to parse the contents. I'm betting you can't view it with calibre's viewer either, can you?
