When importing a book from Kindle for PC/Mac the original file name will have an ".azw" extension. If the import process fails it can result in the book showing AZW format within your calibre library. calibre will treat that as being in a different Kindle e-book format than KFX, leading the error "Failed to convert: (name) This is an Amazon KFX book. It cannot be processed...." when attempting to convert it to another format.

Some things to check:

Make sure that you have both the KFX Input plugin and the DeDRM plugin installed and that you restarted calibre after installation.

When you import the main book file it must be in its original location in a subfolder of the "My Kindle Content" folder.

If you can't resolve the problem you will need to create and post a log of the import process in order to determine what is going wrong: Click the Preferences drop-down menu and choose "Restart in debug mode". Once calibre has re-started, import the problem ebook. Now close calibre. A log will appear that you can copy and paste.
