Here you go. Since I batch convert & send to device, I'm not sure I know HOW many files I have that won't work. I travel a lot, so I have my library duplicated on both my Fire & my KB.......can't say I have tried to open EVERY file........... I do know that files batch converted and sent to device together don't all work on the Fire.

Again, thanks for your help unraveling this problem.

I always use the option in Look N Feel to remove fonts, margins and colors. I never have an issue with any of my books. I do however use a different profile. Maybe you could try that and see but my guess it's the source. If you take a epub from smashwords convert to mobi then sideload does it crash?
It didn't with the one I tested originally, but not EVERY one crashes. Of course, the idea that the source was bad never crossed my mind.
