Sony 350. EPUBs open in Calibre but error on Sony.

I'm trying to troubleshoot a problem I'm having with Calibre and my PRS-350.

Twice I have purchased author self-published books from Barnes and Noble. Two different authors. I download the books, imported them to Calibre using Ignoble 0.1.2. I can open them in Calibre just fine. However on my sony I get a triangle with exclamation point "Page Error!" In both cases other books by the same author, acquired through the same process, work in both locations.

The first time this happened I thought perhaps the file was corrupted so I deleted the file from Calibre and the Sony, re-downloaded them and re-imported them. Same problem. When it happened to a second book, I again deleted and re-downloaded and re-imported with the same result. I'm currently using Calibre 0.7.56. The first time this happened, I had an older version.

In both cases I bought other books by those authors and they worked just fine. I've had no other problems with my Barnes and Noble purchases.

So I have two books that I'll have to sit at my computer to read unless someone reading this can help me out.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I have had several books that my 300 couldn't handle. Sometimes the book wouldn't open at all, and sometimes it would shut down flipping from a given page to the next.

Looking at the books with sigil, a common problem was that the book had no split points. My reader can't handle multi-megabyte internal page files.

In all my cases, converting from EPUB to EPUB fixed the book.

Thanks, Charles. I now can read both books on the Sony. Epub to epub fixed this and also a cover problem I was having. This will now be my first response to seemingly random glitches. It's time I learned sigil, too.
