Conversion Problems

I am trying to convert from Lit to Txt on my Kindle2. I keep getting a conversion error. It's telling me it's not a valid lit file. Is there a way to correct this? I am sending calibre conversion error info. I have hundreds of books that are exactly like this one. I would hate to lose them all. Any help would be greatful. Thank you Tami Walers
