MOBI to LRF: Conversion troubles with Calibre

Hello,

I'd like to convert with Calibre 5 books from MOBI to LRF

Two of them have been converted easily but the three other ones always produce the same error.

Then I've tried later to convert these books to EPUB but the result has been exactly the same.

Here are the details:

Those MOBI files have malformed markup. Probbaly, they're damaged somehow.

I agree with Kovid. The MOBI files have malformed markup and are damaged. Many Mobi files have been decrypted using mobiDeDRM scripts. These scripts before version 7 left parts of the book still encrypted. This may cause the error your seeing.

Ok, thank you very much Kovid and dwanthny for your answers.

The curious thing is that last time I bought prc ebooks, I used mobiDeDRM version 5 and did'nt have any problems to decrypt its and convert its to LRF

This time I used mobiDeDRM version 9 to decrypt these files.

Then what I'm going to do is trying to use again the old script to see if it works better.

Thank you again

Do the decrypted mobi files open up fine?

You can run the conversion with debug on, pointing to a folder, then look at the folder after the process fails and review the html to see what might be odd about it.

Try converting them to epub maybe it's more lenient.

Anyhow, thank you one more time for your help

I looked at one of your files and had the same problem you had. I grabbed the attached script which will convert your mobi file to html. Once it is in html you can add it to Calibre and convert it to the format of your choice. While in html you can clean it up too.

Good Luck

I 've followed your instructions and...it worked perfectly!!

Your script converted easily these 3 books into html and after Calibre had no problems to convert these html files to LRF.

I just want to thank you one more time for your time and your "efficiency" (I'm not sure this word is the right one but I'm sure you'll understand what I mean)

Merci beaucoup!

I didn't write the script, I just found it out there on the web.
