Why doesn't it convert this TOC correctly?

Trying to convert this epub of Dracula - http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=171804 to mobi format.

The TOC gets wiped apart from the first few chapters.

I'm guessing its something to do with the way the epub uses sub-chapters which isn't supported in mobi.

Whats the correct way to convert it with minimal effort?

Managed to find the solution to my own problem.

Used ePubfixer - http://code.google.com/p/epubfixer/

..to create a HTML TOC page and then converted to mobi. That did the trick!

There's an empty <text /> tag in the NCX file of the epub that's probably the culprit. I'm not sure there is an easy way to convert to a mobi with a functional toc... without diving in and editing the original ePub, I mean. I guess it depends what you find easy. I'd fix the epub with Sigil, myself; then re-convert with calibre.
