Help! New Problem

I was able to convert books bought from Fictionwise earlier this year, however, the new batch of books (from Fictionwise again) is giving me a different set of problems. I'm gettting:

The Kindleizer v0.1. Copyright (c) 2007 Igor Skochinsky
Encryption: 2
Mobi publication type: 2
Mobi format version: 4
PID doesn't match this file

I'm doing everything the same as I did before, but it's not working. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

MobiPocket closed the loophole that allowed FictionWise to accept the Kindle PID. If you login and look at "update your PID" under "update profile", my guess is that the Kindle is no longer there (or there without the "*"). So far as I know, it does not help to try adding the Kindle PID back again. If it is there but corrupted, then try deleting it (you may need to get FictionWise to do this).

I think the only approach that still works with FictionWise MOBIs is to use mobidedrm against another PID, e.g. one for a Windows PC. Note that this strips the DRM (which kindlefix did not do) and may therefore be illegal where you live.

The kindlefix approach still works on OverDrive MOBIs, e.g. some Books on Board and lending library ebooks.

In Windows, that is done automatically when Python is installed from http://www.python.org. If it's not already done, then something didn't go right with the install and should be deleted and reinstalled.

Yes I know. And... her .py did show as associated. So, I have no idea why when running the script from the script name didn't work for her. I assumed it was due to lack of association.

I think I did suggest to her to repair/reinstall python.

Beyond pointing you to the Visual Kindle Guide, which contains step by step instructions to kindlepid, I have no suggestions for how to proceed.b

Wallcraft,
Yes, the "kindlepid.y" was a typo, thanks. I managed to finally get the kindlepid script to run by logging out and then logging back in as the administrator. Am using Vista and am learning about the hidden administrator priviledges. I had tried, prior to this last step, right clicking on the command prompt and opening as the administrator before running the script, and that didn't work. Am thinking that not having the hidden administrator priviledges prevented the script from running correctly. Am not exactly sure, because I also accomplished one more uninstall, reinstall as mentioned above. Thanks again for your help.

Due to the circumstance we no longer discuss how-tos for kindlepid.py.
