1 happy guy with 2 questions: What is best setting for mobi and--

Hi Folks,

To introduce myself; I'm a senior citizen having the time of his life learning to make eBooks with Calibre.

I registered on the forum quite some time ago but what with one thing and another I didn't really get started until recently.

I would appreciate some help with two questions.

First, is there a recommended setting for mobi for best over all eBook reader compatibility? I've used the basic Kindle setting and compared it with the Kindle Fire setting, but I can't see any difference. I have a Kindle reader and a Kindle Fire HD and the eBooks seem to work perfectly on both of them. Is there any reason why I should pick one setting over the other? I'm planning on making a series of children's eBooks and I want to be sure they play well on as many readers as possible.

Second, is there a way to turn off making the zip file? I really don't need it. Can that be done? No zip?

Thanks in advance. And especially thanks for Calibre; it's great!
