epub folder to mobi

I have a epub folder that is in individual chapters files. Can I covert them to one mobi file?

EPUB is not normally a Folder
Did you 'explode'/unzip the book with some tool in times past?
You need to reassemble the book (EPUB) somehow: look at the EPUB Merge plugin, Sigil (epub editor), and read the Calibre FAQ section on multiple HTML files

Yes, I unzipped but have the original. I downloaded Sigil. I will check Calibre for info. Thanks for the tip!

This worked to get it into Calibre as a single book. Duh! I assumed I had to unzip. You ROCK!

The trick support people have to do is figure out what user could have done

thanks to this reply I understood what I was doing wrong too! LOL Thanks! Now I know to just add the zipped file into Calibre then convert to Epub.
