There's a bit of contention over whether the Mini reads .mobi adequately. Either way, it's a simple matter to highlight all your books in Calibre, and convert to epub, which is a known quantity and which the Kobo will handle well. (While you're converting, you might want to strip any hardocoded margin, line spacing, and font size settings - in the Conversion settings, they're under Look and Feel > Filter Style Information.)

You'll need to disinfect any DRM-infested files before you do this.

JUst to double check what you mean, I am in the box now for FILTER STYLE INFORMATION

I see 5 blank boxes,
Fonts, Margins, Padding, Floats, Colors

Do you mean I should be checking the boxes besides each of the above?
( I have the latest build of calibre)

( I will need to look into what you mean by disinfecting any DRM---although I am pretty sure its been done for the files i have but i suppose i best learn exactly what to do and how to do it for future reference so i do know what i am talking about )
