THANKS for the suggestions, tried all the steps none worked for me.
The book in question is Ulysses(Penguin, with an introduction by Declan Kiberd) if anybody has it he/she can try and post if they were successful in converting it.

Also, for the love of God, I cannot get the cover of Shoe Dog by Phil Knight to appear, only the generic thumbnail pops up every time, if someone has access to its epub version maybe give it a go if they can get the cover to appear on KFX version.

Edit: Somtime back @HowlerX suggested to delete thumbnails in internal memory of my Kindle. Tried that also, did not work.

Edit2: Got the covers, not perfect nonetheless a huge improvement.

It might be a problem with those specific images or it might be that all together the images result in a file that is too large to be read properly. You could try breaking up the book with the calibre editor to see if those images display properly when part of a smaller file.

Forgot to mention that once you delete the thumbnail of the book you should also remove the book from the Kindle and re-upload the book to the Kindle. Not necessarily in one step. Do one, unplug; then do the other. My best guess is that whatever file is pointing to the thumbnail in the GUI is corrupted/malformed and deleting the thumbnail and book and re-uploading forces that "pointer" file to refresh properly.

Hi!

Quote:
You can verify that the ASIN is set correctly by selecting the book in calibre and looking at the book details panel (usually on the far right). There should be an "Amazon.com" entry in the "Ids:" section. Click on "Amazon.com" there and your browser will open to the associated web page. Verify that the browser shows the expected book and that it is a Kindle edition, not a print edition. Use "Edit Metadata" to fix the ASIN if not.
This really works, but only for Amazon.COM. If the translated version of the book is only available in amazon.com.<A COUNTRY>, you need to manually insert <A COUNTRY> in the URL.

Is there a way to automate this?

Thanks.
Regards.

I found a way to work past this error.

ERROR: Tables with number of columns more than 8 and rows lesser than 65 are currently not supported.

1. After you click on convert, open the options for Table of Contents

2. Increase the Chapter threshold from 6 to 19.

3. If it still shows the same error, tick the box on " Do not add detected chapters "

Some other problems may be fixed in the " Look and feel > Layout ". Tick " Linearize tables"


One other error mentions Table of Contents not being within scope or something like that. For that you can tick " Force auto-generated TOC "

Calibre supports ASINs for country-specific Amazon stores by appending the country code to the identifier name when creating the "amazon" identifier. For example:

amazon:B0064CPN7I --> https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0064CPN7I
amazon_uk:B00BAJ6GL2 --> https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00BAJ6GL2
amazon_de:B016PFA0YO --> https://www.amazon.de/dp/B016PFA0YO
