Thanks for the help! It worked great!

So, this is very interesting. I've been working with ePubs for a while, and I knew they were in zip format. Is some aspect of this KindleGen mobi file in a zip format? How is it that 7-zip can deal with it, and other zip programs can't. Kudos to the 7-zip people!!!

I'm assuming based on everything else I've read that I have a hybrid file (V6 and V8?). Are there certain Kindles that will not be able to read this?
