Device: kindle dx
How to Disable "Auto convert the following books before uploading to device?" Prompt

I think there is a switch somewhere, but I am starting to lose some of what hair I have left trying to find it.

I autoload news sources and send them over to a kindle dx (mobi format). I also have a literati (epub format). So I changed the default preferred format to epub for the literati. But when I try to send one or more of the epub news files over to kindle, I get a prompt for each news file:

"No suitable formats"
"Auto convert the following books before uploading to the device?"

When I select yes, Calibre promptly converts the epub to mobi, or visa versa, depending on which format the file is in and which device I have connected to the pc.

The prompts are annoying and prevent auto transfer to the connected reader.

Does anyone know if there is a switch to turn off the auto convert confirmation?
