List books without specific format

Have recently started using Calibre to sort out my collection of ebooks. I have iPad and wife has kindle so wanted to convert whole lot to ePub and mobi formats only. Have set up library using Dropbox and use calibre2Opds to enable either of us to grab books.

Some of the books are bombing the converter. (not at main computer now but will post some of the error messages to fix later)

Main thing is I would like to list books that are NOT of a particular format so I can try and tweak them to allow conversion.

Any hints??
