Question Zipped HTML to EPUB only gets one chapter

Hi guys,

I've imported a Zip file containing xhtml files of a book into Calibre. The zip contains prologue.xhtml and chapter01.xhtml through chapter44.xhtml, but when I convert the book to epub and open the resulting file with fbreader it only contains chapter 17. I double-checked the file by opening the epub like a zip file and have confirmed that the content directory only contains the resources directory calibre_title_page.html and chapter17.xhtml.

Does anybody know why out of 45 files number 17 is the only one to be grabbed and converted into the epub, and how I can prevent this so that the entire book is converted?

Thanks

I don't know why he choosed this file. But since he use only one html file as the book, you should add a index.html (or xhtml) file that got only link to all chapter file in order.

That did the trick. I still think it's weird that it just grabbed chapter 17 before.

Is it possible to do that without that table of contents showing up in the final file? I personally prefer for there to not be a TOC at the beginning of the doc when I can get to one through a menu. I removed the text from the hyperlinks, but Aldiko still shows three blank pages where all the links were before.

I was just reading about this program on their website and notice that they recommend Calibre as the tool to get books converted into ePub so they can be moved onto an Android equipped device to read:

Aldiko.com\Support\General
What format does Aldiko support?
Aldiko supports the ePub format.

If you have non-DRMed books in the following formats: lit, pdf, mobi, rtf, txt, html, fb2, prc**, odt, cbr and cbz, you can use a free software called Calibre to convert any of the above formats to ePub and then import your books into Aldiko. You can get Calibre from here http://calibre.kovidgoyal.net/. If need assistance for doing that, please feel free to let us know.
Dr. Goyal, you're becoming famous!
