epub to mobi error -- no page map?

Hi:

I'm using Kindle Previewer to convert an ePub file created in InDesign 5.5, which has validated in Sigil. The book is quite simple, with just a few images. Previewer tells me that the conversion has failed because of errors. Am I right that I need to scroll through the compilation details and try to guess what the problem is? If so, I have found just the following:

Info(pagemap):I8000: No Page map found in the book

I have been unable to find out what this means. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd be very grateful.

Thanks

Chris

I wouldn't worry too much about it. There's a way to map kindle locations to a particular print version of the book's physical page numbers. If you don't have a print version (or know the details about which print version you want to use), it can be safely ignored.

There must be other errors in your document, because that error (only a warning, actually) isn't enough to cause the conversion to fail.
(Unless you're actually trying to create a page map and something's wrong)

Jon, you really need to start trying to answer the questions people ask, instead of just telling them what you want them to hear. It's not very helpful. In fact it's rude.
