Mobi2mobi -spaces in file names

I am trying to create a batch file to run a number of mobi2mobi conversions one after another. I have managed to create a batch file with about 30 books.

However, I get an error when trying to run the file. The problem appears to be that my input .prc file has spaces in it (e.g., Heinlein, Robert - Moon is a harsh mistress.prc). Mobi2mobi thinks my input file is called "Heinlein" rather than the entire longer string. Is there any way to get mobi2mobi to recognize a file name with spaces in it?

Thanks.

Jerry

Always put the filename in quotes, e.g. "Heinlein, Robert - Moon is a harsh mistress.prc".

I am actually converting from prc to mobi. However, the reason that I am running the conversion is to fix the title and author metadata inside of the file so that the books correctly show up in my Kindle.

It's just a punny name for editing the meta data of a current file.
