help with converting

help please with calibre
Hi all - I am Emcee - a newbie to this group. I am using Calibre and for some reason I am unable to convert my files to EPUB so they can be read. I can convert to MOBI but my sony reader is not too fond of MOBI. The problem with the conversion is all the lines run together - squished like - I get about 15 lines in one half inch - hard to explain - but a 150 page book is reduced down to about 30 pages if you get my drift. I am not too technically challenged but I really don't know how to go about fixing this problem. This problem helps whether I am converting from LIT, LRT, PDF or MOBI to EPUB. I have un-installed Calibre and re-installed - and that did not correct the problem. I have gone thru my books and I can open them on my computer in the other formats so the downloads are good. I can't remember when this problem started or whether I have always had it - I know that last year I was really frustrated reading my reader only to open a new book and it was all screwed up. I sort of quit using my reader but I have started again. Thanks for any help

Sony's read EPUB

so the first thing is to put the conversion settings back to Default



(which you should have ALSO restored to default Upper Right corner of Preferences:Common options ) Set the Output profile to you Sony Model (family)

Note any previous conversion setting is saved with the book that was converted. Use the button at the bottom of the conversion form to reset to the Current System Preference
