I just downloaded a free .lit from Baen and had no issues under Windows 7, 64 bit using calibre 0.9.38.

You're going to have to provide more detail. You almost certainly do not have the same exact problem as someone using this program over 130 versions and almost 3 years ago.

The problem in the previous thread was a Linux user not installing to his system per calibre's recommendation. You have Windows Vista x64. I suggest you install and run the 32 bit version of calibre and see if that makes a difference.

Hi again

Well, er... First of: I'm virginally new to e-book reading/processing, having always rather preferred the paper ones, so I don't know squat about the entire issue.

I recently embarked on an effort to recreate my onetime (paper)library in e-book version. Bluntly by searching for and ripping every book I remembered, or that I found and fancied. (Hate DRM).

Anyway, most that I found were .PDF but others, predominantly in .lit were most commonly from archives. Now I'm thinking, maybe the archived files were damaged? Or maybe even there was a snag in downloading the respective torrents. Because Calibre does import them, but will not show them properly, or at all.

Not being impaired by any knowledge on the subject, I then thought it must be an incompatibility issue with Calibre, and so I sought to convert from .lit to .epub. using Calibre standard settings. This did not go well at all. Quite aside from DRM, apparently something else was interfering. Of course I did not trust myself to change the settings, because I'm still so ignorant. This is as much detail as I can currently provide, sorry.

Again, using Calibre 2.0.9.39.0 x64 on Windows Vista x64.

Can you please advise?

Thanks again,

E.M. Verheij.

You need to give more details on the exact errors you are getting. I convert .lit files with no problems. However I have found that many .lit files are damaged - and then they obviously have conversion problems.
