having trouble getting books to convert

I have converted many books form pml to epub with no problems, but these last three are giving me fits, The original error is that metadata can not be read. So I registered and was then able to use my access key to download metadata. Then when I try to convert I get an error that the conversion failed with the following script... what is going wrong?

ERROR: Conversion Error: <b>Failed</b>: Convert book 1 of 1 (To the Nines (Stephanie Plum, No. 9))

I am new here and after doiong a lot more poking around I am wondering if I should have not made this post and should have put in a ticket instead. Can someone advise me as to the correct way to proceed? I am a member of many forums and I always resent those that jump right in and do not take the time to observe and learn how the forum works before they jump in with both feet. I am afraid that that is exactly what I have done here and if so I apologize.

Best way to report problems is to opena ticket and attach the file causing the problems.
