I know about that limitation and I think Calibre may write a larger title, but there is no way to be sure since there is no way to access the metadata... I get the error I told you about even if I don't try to modify the metadata, only read it. Not to mention I also get that error if I try to modify it. So as far as mobi2mobi is concerned the file is ruined.

Again, the weird thing it doesn't happen for all large title files... I have reconverted another large title book in Calibre and it works just great in mobi2mobi.
