Problem reading MOBI file on Kindle
I have a Mobi file on Calibre which opens perfectly on my macbook pro using the calibre reader.
When I upload it to my kindle it shows but it I get a message telling me to delete it and up load it from Amazon.
Is this a DRMrpoblem - and if so how can I solve it please?

Are you sure you're uploading the file from calibre, and not some other version of the file?

Calibre can manage DRM locked files. The files retain their DRM and can be read only on the Kindle that they are coded for. If you load a DRM locked Kindle file from one device into calibre and then move it to a different device from calibre the second device can not open the file and will give the message you report. If the second Kindle is registered to the same account as the first then simply downloaded from Amazon will "cure" the problem.

I was under the impression that if you import a DRM locked file into Calibre that you are unable to view it with the Calibre viewer. If I'm correct, then the fact that the book can be read in Calibre would imply that this is not a DRM issue... or has something changed?

You are correct. If Calibre can display it, there's no DRM.

Do a mobi to mobi conversion in calibre before sending it to the kindle.

I have run into the same thing, I found the problem was that under preference /Output Options / mobi I had the setting to convert to "New" rather then "Old", check that setting.
