Have you turned off your ZIP plugin? Perhaps to prevent HTML-> ZIP conversion?

Check your Preferences, Plugins, File Type plugins and see if any are grayed out.

That means you are trying to convert a zip file that does not contain a recognizable ebook inside it.

Same Error

Alright, I downloaded a set of webpages from a website. It put everything in nice little folders for each level. Each book has it's own index.htm file in the folder (multiple books). I'm just trying to convert one book out of the set. So I used to Calibre to import it's index.htm file. It zipped everything into a nice little folder including all the images. I am now trying to convert this book into epub or pdf but I keep running into the error:

Code:
ValueError: No plugin to handle input format: zip
I'm not sure why I'm running into this error. According to above, there's not a recognizable ebook in the zip file. But Calibre made this Zip file from the index.htm file, so how can there not be a book there. I've already edited the HTML > ZIP Plugin to use "Breadth First Order" and the plugin is enabled (obviously since it creates the Zip file).

What am I doing wrong?
