kindlegen epub to mobi error

I m trying to convert an epub to mobi using kindlegen V2.3 build 36043 and I get the following error:

Codrut-Popescus-MacBook-Proesktop codrutpopescu$ ./KindleGen_Mac_i386_v2/kindlegen Advanced\ Magick\ for\ Beginners_nodrm.epub

Error(prcgen):E24001: The table of content could not be built.
Info(prcgen):I1038: MOBI file could not be generated because of errors!

Anyone has any idea of what can the cause be?

Thanks

Somewhere, an "href" or "src" attribute is pointing to a resource that doesn't exist in your epub.

I'd start by checking the two files indicated—toc.ncx and title_page.html—very closely.

Most likely an "href" bug. But, also check spelling. opf/xhtml relations are case sensitive.

opf might have, for example... Cover_page01
The actual xhtml file might have... Cover_Page01

This will show as two errors, one will be an unreachable, the other will be an unused. Fire your epub through a validator, Sigil has a fairly good one and it will let you double click the errors and take you to the appropriate file and highlight the line it doesn't like. If you don't get an error then try regenerating your TOC with sigil, it's all tick boxes, dead easy. This will create a nice new clean NCX file for you. (Remember to make a back-up before you start fiddling. )

Good luck.
