Calibre MOBI to EPUB conversion error

I started using Calibre today, and have converted two books with success. However, when attempting to convert a third book it came up with the Error:Conversion Error. I have carried out the same steps with this conversion as with the others and so I don't know what I have done wrong.

This is what the error message said:

calibre, version 0.7.50
ERROR: Conversion Error: <b>Failed</b>: Convert book 1 of 1 (Shopaholic Ties the Knot)

That error indicates your MOBI file is corrupted, probably by whatever you used to remove the DRM from it.
