Error when Converting CBR file

Hi,

Just received a shiny new PRS-300 as a Christmas present (yahoo!). But I am having problems converting a manga .cbr file - can anyone tell me where I am going wrong? Error message pasted below:

Try converting the CBR file to a CBZ file using winrar or a similar utility

Thanks kovidgoyal,

That seems to have done the trick partly; now I am only getting a fully rendered cover page, plus blank pages with the page number in the top right hand side of the screen. I will try to alter a couple of settings and see where that take me.

Thanks again - great software.

Got it to work. Simply changed the output to LRF (instead of Epub). Manga is very readable in Landscape format. I just need to work lessen the borders now - that should make it even more readable.

Cheers.
