Failed to Compile

W7, CS6: Trying to convert small test epub file created in InDesign to mobi via Kindle Previewer, I get "failed to compile" with these details:
************************************************** ***********
Amazon kindlegen(Windows) V2.8 build 0208-797bf75
A command line e-book compiler
Copyright Amazon.com and its Affiliates 2013
************************************************** ***********

Info:I9026ption: (hidden) amazon creator tool or pipeline

Info:I9014ption: -verbose: Verbose output

Info(prcgen):I1048: Unpacking ePub file
************************************************** ********

Interestingly, when I convert the file to html5 via a plugin (in5), it compiles (with errors but that's not the problem). Any suggestions as to why it won't compile the epub created by InDesign?

Did you validate the epub with epubcheck online?

No, that's likely the problem. I was fooled because it did work with the html file but not the epub. I'll validate the epub and try again.
Thanks
