My plain old .mobi file synched to last page read?!?
I have a kindle 2 with a "bought from Amazon" version of an ebook called "The Devil To Pay".
I took that file, stripped the DRM, and have a plain .mobi version of it.
I loaded the .mobi file onto my Kindle using calibre. I can see it when I browse the directory when the kindle 3 is connected to my PC by USB, the file is called "Devil to Pay, The - Michele Hauf.mobi"
When I open this ebook on the Kindle 3, I have the option to sync to the last page read. It worked when I first loaded it into the Kindle 3, it synched about a 1/3 of the way in which is where I'd left off in the Kindle 2.
Has anyone else been able to sync .mobi files? Does it maybe only work with mobi files where the DRM was removed from an Amazon kindle-store-bought copy?

Hi Gwen - I've never tried to sync these types of ebooks so I'll give it a go.
I'm having the opposite problem. One of my Amazon Kindle purchases (Magic Kingdom/Terry Brooks) does not want to sync at all between Kindle for iPhone and K2i. I've had to input the location manually each time. Never had an issue before and I haven't tampered with the book in any way.

It looks like Amazon recognises their own ebooks via the ASIN. Here, more info:
