No, but maybe running epubcheck on it would provide a clue.

If you are using calibre, add the epubcheck plugin to the editor, open the epub in the editor and check it with both the builtin check and epubcheck. Fix any errors and try re-sending to Amazon.

I tried converting from EPUB to EPUB and sending it to my Kindle. Got the same error.

So I tried the epubcheck but when I open the editor and click to run epubcheck, I get the following error:

@MSWallack

Do you have Java installed? Epubcheck is supplied as .jar file which will need Java to execute it.

Make sure you use a 64 bit Java installer since the results of using a 32 bit Java executable on a 64 bit system can sometimes produce "interesting" results.

See Java Downloads for All Operating Systems on Oracle's site for the download and select the Windows Offline (64 bit) installer.

I'm having a weird one with epubs myself. I don't know if I missed a setting or something, but I can't send epubs over USB to my kindle in the newest calibre. I was using 5.1 and thought it might be some kinda leftover problem from using an older version, but even with the newest I still don't have an option to send epubs.

If it helps, I've got a kindle oasis.

Any idea what I'm missing? I can email the files perfectly fine, but USB transfers it just won't let me pick the epub format, and wants to convert them before sending them over.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Amazon misled you: the device (and the app) can not read epubs. An epub you email to the Kindle is converted into a format your kindle can read.

Use Calibre to convert to KF8 or KFX to send via USB to your Kindle. Kindles cannot read ePub natively. They first have to be converted to a format your Kindle can handle.
