This error description pops up a lot, and it's still the least helpful I can think of. What exactly didn't work? Were there error messages? If so, what did they say?

As it stands I've got several different folders with PDFs in them and additionally need to specify paths for input and output or I'd have to copy them a folder at a time into Calibre's program folder for conversion (if I had to).
Well, yeah. That line, as I posted it and you quoted it, only looks for PDFs in the current directory. For subdirectories, you'd have to call it manually or modify it to recurse, which I have given zero thought to

So - from your reply I'm thinking this is just used as a command-line and not from a batch file or script file ?
I used it as commandline only, but I cannot see a single reason why it wouldn't work in a batch file (for this context, by the way, batch file == script file).
