Thank you for your quick reply. I changed the extension, dragged that copy back to calibre, and then tried to convert it. Here's the error message

I tried to then just view it, and here's the other message

I tried the tpz method on other books, and it comes up always as 'unknown book type'. I should mention that I can read these books on the Kindle Reader for iPhone (so I don't THINK they are corrupt, but they could be).

Thanks again for this amazing program (it works for other books I have) and for your help
