Question Conversion help epub to .mobi or aww

Can anyone tell me the easiest way (or otherwise) to convert an ePub to either a .mobi or .azw3 file, so that I can read it on my Kindle as a book? I am unable to do it with Calibre and cannot figure out how to do this one simple thing.

I have several ebooks on Kindle listed as docs rather than ebooks, and would prefer to have them all show up under books.

Download KindleGen and run it. Read about it in our wiki.

When did Amazon release a Kindle Voyager?

Anyway, don't convert to Mobi (AZW). Convert to KF8 (AZW3). Mobi is obsolete and depending on how the ePub is setup, you could be losing formatting.

Calibre works well to convert ePub to KF8. If you use Kindlegen, you'll end up with eBooks that are much much larger than they need to be and you'll fill up your available storage with a lot less eBooks.
