That message means your Kindle Touch does not have the latest KF8 enabled firmware.

I have no clue, why are you using KF8 mobi anyway? Simply convert to azw3.

You may need to enable the newer formats in Preferences: Device Plugins: Kindle. Not all K# models support some of these formats, therefore they are not enabled by default

define better.
Some people think Mono-spaced text, no indents or images is better

IIRC KF8 will support (kindles flavor of) EPUB .
EPUB has finer control of many formatting styles that Mobi did not support.
The (possible) downside, is bigger file sizes (less books on the device).

In your case azw3 is better because it works.

azw3

No, azw3 is not working for me.
one of the best things with Calibre and Kindle, is that 4 times per day (it remains a BIG pity that Calibre not allows to specify exact hours but only every 0.x part of a day, I am not interested in news when I sleep), Calibre sends automatically an email with news items to my Kindle, and yes, AZW3 is not a supported format for that. so, I had to revert everything to MOBI again, and like the new format is not working....

•Documents: Kindle (.AZW, .AZW1). Text (.TXT), Unprotected Mobipocket (.MOBI, .PRC)
•Audible: Audible (.AA, .AAX)
•Music: MP3 (.MP3)
