.mobi corrupted zip header

Hi all,

Not sure if I've got a problem or not with this.

I used Three Press validation tool and get the all-clear on the .epub file (I'm using Sigil). But when I try to validate the converted .mobi file (using Calibre), I get this error:

1. ERROR: The Red Cockatoo - Mitch Miller.mobi: corrupted ZIP header
2. ERROR: The Red Cockatoo - Mitch Miller.mobi: I/O error: error in opening zip file
3. Check finished with warnings or errors!

I've downloaded and installed the latest Calibre software and still get the same error.


[Unauthorised book files removed]
I've attached the files here. Apologies they are quite big.

Many thanks in advance.

John.

You're trying to validate a MOBI using an EPUB validation tool. MOBI is very different from EPUB and you cannot use an EPUB validator on a MOBI.

Sometimes you just can't see the wood for the trees!

Thank you very much.
