Calibre doesn't convert my PDF

Hello
I downloaded Calibre to convert PDF to EPub for my Aura Kobo HD reader. So I opened the software and I added the book I wanted to convert and click Convert but nothing happens, the task remains at 1% for hours. What should I do to convert properly and in a normal time my book? Thank you!

Some (tiny amount of) conversions can take over a DAY. It is all about COMPLEXITY of the source, not book file size or page count.

Crash = a fail. If the wheel spins: do something else while it grinds away (do plug in if a battery run device. you will probably need more juice)

Do take time to read the sticky about PDF at the top of this section.

I always find I have better luck using Mobipocket creator for PDF conversions but usually they always needs cleaning after conversion.

I use Mobipocket to create an HTML file, edit this, then convert to my final output format
