Fictonwise multiformat books?

Has anyone tried loading one of the multiformat books from Fictionwise onto the Kindle?

Yes. I tried an issue of Asimov's in PRC. The Kindle read it, but the table of contents did not work.

The problem is likely related to how they generated the file.

I wonder what the problem is? I read "Asimov's" myself and the TOC works fine on both the iLiad and the Gen3.

Nate, thanks for the response. I was a little worried because I read that the mobipocket file had to have no DRM at all. The Fictionwise web site mentions that printing and speak aloud? were disabled. I was concerned that that might be considered some type of DRM.

It's comforting to know that I'll have over a hundred books available to read on my Kindle when it arrives!!!
