Unhappy Epub To RB Conversion Problem - Files From Both Calibre and Nuevomedia

Attached are two files converted to RB format. One was converted from epub to rb with Calibre; the other was converted from HTML to rb with Nuevomedia. I had done a file compare on two files and they are different. Naturally, the file preambles differed, but there were large sections of the file that did not match.

I posted the following at the problem originally:

I wonder if anyone can help. I planned to give my RCA eBook to a worthy friend along with the promise to make eBooks for her. I did this thinking it would be easy, given that Calibre offered an EPUB to RB convertion capability. I used it, only to discover that something was wrong with the RB format. Although the RB formatted eBook transfered to the reader and could be seen as a book title, no book was visible when opened, i.e., the page was blank. To see if there was a problem with the reader itself, I converted another book using the old Nuevomedia book creator; in this case the ebook "worked", i.e., it transfered, it's title was listed, and the book opened. Has anyone encountered this problem, and, if so, is there a solution?

I'm not seeing them.

This could be a difference in the html included within the file. Calibre does some processing before it is converted to a (hopefully) compatible output.

Similar problem converting from pdf to rb with Calibre

Hello everyone.
I am having a similar problem converting from pdf to rb with Calibre.
I can download the file to my REB1100, and even see the file in the bookshelf, but when I open it, all I see is a blank screen.
Any idea where I could find a hint of what is going wrong?
Thank you.
Regards,
Fernanda.
