Calibre will not convert full book

Hi there, this is my first post on here, so I ask in advance to be patient with me.

Anyway, I have been try to convert epub files on calibre and after hours of finally getting it to convert, it has only converted the first 2 pages, one which is the cover and the other page is the title page. I have been at this for hours now and I'm really stuck as to what I am doing wrong.

I have the latest version of calibre 0.8.19. my device is a Kindle 3GS +Wifi and I am running windows 7 OS. The books that I am trying to convert are ones that I managed to get from my Iphone, and all of them are epub files

Please help.

Thank you

It is likely that the problem is with the source epub file. Are the epub files DRM free? This is a requirement for Calibre to be able to convert them successfully. As an example any books downloaded from the Apple store are extremely likely to be DRM protected.

One simple chech - does the book show up OK in the Calibre viewer (which is an epub viewer)? It will not if it is DRM protected.
