Question for Mini users related to conversions to FB2 format.

It looks as though Calibre does this successfully, at least for their own PC reader, but I wanted to know if anyone out there can confirm that a Calibre conversion from Epub to FB2 format will maintain the chapters when viewed on the Mini. I am not familiar with the Mini software but I assume it allows a jump to chapters or pages as does the Lite.

Also, for the Mini, is there any reason that a Calibre conversion from Epub to FB2 will look different in any way? Do you lose anything in a conversion or is it impossible to tell one from the other?

Thanks guys

I have used Calibre to convert several epubs to FB2, and have not been able to get a linked table of contents, using the internal viewer, FBreader, or the Palm device that I occasionally use as a reader. So, I'm guessing the mini will also not have a linked table of contents.

Can anyone with a mini confirm this?

Your experience is interesting, as I have tried a few Epub conversions and they did link the contents. My guess is it depends on the Epub differences.
