problems converting html to mobi with calibre

Calibre is stopping halfway through conversion process of html to mobi. The html file itself is usually the end result of a conversion from a pdf or word doc.

My process is to use adobe acrobat to take pdf to html (or microsoft word to pdf), then I use calibre to take the html and make final mobi product.

This process usually works but sometimes I get stuck in the [Creating Mobi Output] part of calibre conversion.

I will paste job details below. Thanks. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. I spend an unreal amount of time trying to get things books to convert just right.
If its relavent or useful I also have adobe creative suite 5 with Indesign and everything.

That log doesn't indicate that an error happened. Is it complete? Is the job listed as failed? If not, you'll just need to wait- conversions can take quite a long time if the source format has particularly dodgy markup.

PDF should never be used as a intermediary format during conversions and should only be the source format if you have no other choice.

The odds are that Calibre is not stuck. Some conversions can take hours, especially files that originated as MS Word documents. To minimize calibre conversion times to mobi, all Word files should be saved as Web page (filtered).

Providing the entire Job details is always better. To keep it from overwhelming a post just highlight that section of the post then click on the spoiler tag (eye with a red X on it).

Good Luck.
