Command line conversion not working

Hi guys,

I'm trying to convert a TXT file to EPUB using the command line, but for some reason it doesn't work.

The command I'm using is

Code:
ebook-convert "C:\stuff\new1.txt" "C:\stuff\new1.epub" --pretty-print --markdown
Please note that I've tried putting the input and output files both with paths and without (first moving the TXT file to the Calibre folder, obviously), with and without quotes, having the output without a path, etc. Nothing works, and the only result I get is
Code:
Cannot read from C:\stuff\new1.txt
I'm using v0.7.15, on Windows 7.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Thanks in advance

Nevermind, I'm an idiot.

For future reference, if you create a TXT file, make sure the filename doesn't start with a space...

Thanks anyway, I guess
