Offhand... I see nothing wrong with it. If all the various files are in the locations specified in the OPF (and the ncx file is well-formed) it should work.

Let me ask you this. What are you giving to kindlegen? The opf file, the html file, or an epub that contains both? If you're just feeding kindlegen the html file, it won't know the opf (including the cover) or ncx exists.

Hello Diapdealer,
Thanks for the reply. I am following the Kindlegen instructions. and selecting the html file. All of the bits listed are in the correct bits with the html file in same folder that I navigate down to and then generate the mobi file. It must know the opf file is there because I had some errors which I corrected in the opf file and when I generated the mobi file again it just came down to the cover and it not finding the ncx file.
I have generated this file with mobipocket creator and it passed with no problems so I know the TOC NCX file is Ok. (This book has some extra features like embedded fonts that I would like to take advantage of that is why I am generating a file using Kindlegen so that the fonts etc can be seen on the Kindle fire etc)
I have taken a screenshot of the folder everything is in and attached it just to see if anybody can see if I have that wrong.

Leave everything where it is... but feed kindlegen the OPF file instead of the html file. The html file doesn't know about the OPF or the NCX.
