The Windows MobiPocket Reader is supposed to be able to import CHM and output MOBI, but it does not always work.

I have used the ABC Amber CHM Converter with great results. It does convert the data (text) within the CHM file and also converts the graphics that are included. Output options include the standard offerings of PDF, DOC, RTF, etc. It preserves the original links from the CHM file. I have included a PDF conversion of the program's CHM help file as an example of the output the program creates.

They also say that they will soon be offering LRF format for Sony Readers; but, sadly not in the current version. There is a link to the software in the MobileRead Wiki. It is a commercial program that does offer a free trial period of a prior version.

Another program I have tried with mixed results (and a higher price tag) is AIK Research Labs' chm2web.

Extract to HTML and then use whichever tool you prefer to read/convert it.

Did importing the CHM directly via Windows MobiPocket Reader fail? What the Reader does internally is create the HTMLs and then converts them to MOBI, but the other tools that RWood mentioned may do a better job of getting to the HTML stage.

If I was using ABC Amber CHM Converter I would try either single file HTML or LIT output. Single file HTML should be easy to make into MOBI, except that the file is huge. LIT is also very easy to convert to MOBI, and this may be better if the conversion was done well by ABC. First "explode" the LIT, using ConvertLIT, into an OEB ebook (HTMLs, IMAGEs, and an .opf metadata file), then convert this to MOBI using MobiPocket Creator by giving it the .opf file. MOBI is a derivative of the OEB file format, and so works very well from expoded LITs.

This is an interesting topic.

I am also a physician like Romanas and I still need the Cecil Textbook of Medicine 23rd Ed which is in CHM format.
