lit conversion with the Kindle.

I converted a .lit file using ABC lit converter. I then used Mopipocket to make it Kindle friendly. The book displays great on my Kindle, but it is listed on my Kindle home page as ABC Lit Converter, rather than the actual title of the book. I've tried everything I could think of to fix this, but so far I've been unable.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please, use ConvertLit+mobigen. It is way superior to ABC converter.

You can use tompe's mobiperl suit to modify the title of your already converted books. Mobiperl actually has a lit2mobi program which is roughly equivalent to ConvertLit+mobigen.

If you used MobiPocket Creator, it should be possible to change the Title before creating the MOBI file (or edit the .opf file directly, since it presumably has ABC Lit Converter listed as the title). An alternative is to use mobi2mobi to change the title of the final MOBI file.

There are BUGS in ABC Amber LIT Converter. Don't use it. There are much better ways to convert. Just read around the forum to find out how to do it.
