Can't move to device using Calibre

I have an HTC Incredible 1 with the kindle app installed. When I manually move .mobi books from my PC to my droid it works great. However, when I try to use the "send to device" function in Calibre I get an error telling me my books are in the wrong format for my device. The formats it's telling me I need are epub and pdf even though I'm using the kindle reader and the books are in mobi.

I've tried setting my device as an android device, a general smartphone and a kindle 123 and I get the same error no matter what.

Is there a way to fix this?

thanks!

Likely you need to change a calibre setting in Preferences to tell it the preferred format for you device.
