EPUB to MOBI: "Failed: Convert book 1 of 1"

My apologies if this has already been covered. When I try to convert an ePUB to MOBI, I get the message "Failed: Convert book 1 of 1".

Background: I created this ePUB from an InDesign document, and it reads just fine using Adobe Digital Editions. I tried converting another ePUB that I downloaded from Adobe, and it converted with no problem. I work on a Mac, BTW.

I'm not sure where to start—can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance.

Hi Jillo and welcome to MobileRead. Are you using Calibre? If so, you might try posting your question in that section.
