Which doesn't work for periodicals (and isn't supposed to, FWIW) .
Hi NiLuJe,

I just checked, and my mobi output is set to "old" format. So everything should be fine. I checked the news files on my Kindle and they're in "pobi" format. Which I take it is just like mobi, but for (p)ublications? Any other ideas? And like I mentioned above, they do open, but only through the sub-menu, otherwise you get an error the first time you try to open them. They open just fine with Calibre or Kindle-PC.
