Mobi (no DRM) fails to convert to epub

I have have some mobipocket books that I have been converting to epub. There is no DRM (removed -- with a plugin). For most I have had no problems at all, but I am having a few of them that "fail to convert".
What is interesting is it is a set of books (series) and half convert (4 of 6) and half will not. I can view the book with the Ebook Viewer. What do I need to do?

In the past I have seen some people report this problem and it always seemed to be caused by a mobi file that the drm wasn't perfectly removed. Sometimes mobidedrm doesn't do a complete job, some bytes are still encrypted.

I don't have a solution just an observation. Maybe you can ensure you are using the latest scripts to remove the drm.

Good Luck
