Help: bogus database name! is this really a PalmOS file?

I got this error and tried to change the database name to something shorter than 32 characters using this command:
mobi2mobi --outfile Ultimate_French_Verb.azw --databasename "Ult_French_Verb" Ult_Frnch_Verb.azw

I am new to this and got the original error. Can someone tell me how to do this easily?

details: the problem seems to be that a 32 character database name is expected and a longer name prevents calibre from readinga null terminating character. When I try to convert with calibre I get a topaz files are not supported error.

The question should be; "is this really a mobi file?"

Which answers the above question. You need to search for tools pertaining to the topaz format (which are not for the faint of heart).

From what i remember the database name does not have to be null terminated. Bur it cannot be longer than 32 characters.
