Thanks to all for your detailed instructions.
I can't figure out the running of kindlefix.py.

Can someone (LEEP?) help me get the detailed instructions.

Thanks!

That's a bit of a strange name. Why don't you try renaming the original file leaving out the -mobi part and try that. Else your problem is way beyond me. Think you might need someone experienced in python scripts to help. Sorry that's I'm just a struggler myself.

Cheers

Does Kindlefix need the PID? I thought it just fliped a bit in the book. If you run kindlefix without any arguments does it return with the correct usable parameters?

The file prc.py should be next to kindlefix.py.

That's it! I had, in fact, only placed the kindlepid.py and kindlefix.py files to C:\Python25\Tools\Scripts and NOT the prc.py file as well.
After correcting this I have now been able to convert to .azw just fine.

I am now looking for a way to modify the title, if possible on a Mac...

I am really grateful, Igor, for this remarkable work.
I bought my 400$ Kindle from Amazon and had it delivered to a legal address that I have in the US. I am using my Kindle in Central Africa, and I thought that I would be able to download content via my computer. However, I can't even purchase Kindle books from Amazon, because of "geographical restrictions" (which, you notice, they did not apply when I purchased the Kindle...).
Anyway, you have solved my problem and I can now enjoy a good read, even by the light of my kerosene lamp in the middle of the jungle, (thanks also to the good battery of the Kindle...).

Thanks again to all.

find the mobiperl package. Included in a mobi2mobi script that allows you to edit the mobi file's metadata, such as Title.

Thanks Bob, I have been looking at info on downloading and installing mobi2mobi on my Mac, but I have not yet found anything that I can get my head around.

Do you (or anybody) have any pointers or suggestions for us simple users?

I haven't used it on my Mac yet... but from my understanding it is a perl script.. and I'm pretty sure perl is preinstalled on OS X (I've only had my Mac for less than two weeks no.). But, assuming perl is in the path, you should be able to run the script from the command line. I think there are some docs that come with it. Perhaps when I get home (to my Mac) I'll give it a go.

Ok... the mobiperl web site has step by step directions to getting the mobiperl stuf working on a Mac. I have leopard 10.5.3 so perl 5.8.8 is already on it. So, you have to install the CPAN modules and should be good to go. The URL with this info is here:

New related question: I successfully ran the Igor scripts on my home computer. Can I use the same kindlePID on my work computer without actually running kindlepid.py and getting a different PID than the one I already have at home?
