It's not that it doesn't work with the e-books I've tried, but some of the formatting gets lost. Mobigen converts CSS style information into Mobipocket specific tags and lit2mobi does not.

Actually, mobiperl is far from being a monster, if you're not afraid of invoking some console commands. Just give it a try, with just one command needed to do the full conversion process it actually is the easiest method out there.

Why can't someone produce a nice little programe todo these conversions?

Just double click on the file and it loads and converts to one's choice of output.

I really don't see how it could be made much easier than using ConvertLIT/Mobi Creator!

I think you're talking about the app called IWIWS. (I Wish It Were So) You can find it on your local mega-mart shelves right next to the canned Unobtanium and boxes of World Peace: Dummies Edition.

How about one application that does the conversion .lit to .prc in one go and not two stages?

Why is that unreasonable?

Derek, I looked where you said and I could not find the app you spoke about...

Mobiperl has a Lit2Mobi.exe. You can set up a file association (Windows) that would basically convert any lit that you double-clicked on to convert it to mobi.

I assume you can do similar on the Mac, but I am still learning that type of stuff. But, with Automator it seems like it would be doable.

I've *YET* to figure out how to get the opf2mobi to work. Of course, I'm attempting to run the .exe version (0.38) but still... And Mobipocket Creator does such a crappy job of formatting opf/multi-file html ebooks to my taste.

maybe if Mobi2Mobi GUI were able to deal with opf2mobi, it would make a difference, but this command-line stuff is for the birds!

To convert Lit to Mobi it is very easy... you just type...

lit2mobi MyLitFile.lit

and press enter. You know how to use the command prompt right?

I didn't say that it was "unreasonable". Just that - for me at least - using ConvertLIT and then Mobi Creator is sufficiently easy that I don't have a need, personally, for anything easier.

The other reason I like using Mobi Creator is that it gives you a chance to look at - and if necessary to change - the book's metadata during the conversion process. Most have the author's name as "firstname lastname"; I prefer to change it to "lastname, firstname".

Ok. I've done a few .lit to .prc conversions using the convertlit and then the mobicreator route. It is not too bad. A question. After the process I have a directory with stuff in it like cover art etc. Do I just need to keep and use the .prc file or do I need the other bits and pieces?

Second where can I learn how to do the mobiperl stuff? (Easy version)

All you need to read the book is the ".prc" file. It's a good idea to keep the OEB source, however, in case you want to make any changes subsequently.
