Trouble downloading to PC

I usually download direct from the amazon.co.uk site to my PC (win7Pro) and the add books to my Calibre reader.
Today when I download Kindle unlimited books (usually direct purchases) the file name is not azw3 but "file" and the book name is azw3(x). When I try to add to Calibre I get a message Errno 22 invalid file name or mode wbN.
I cannot therefore add to Calibre. I am using calibre 2.81 which has been fine up to today but the problem seems to be at the download stage as the downloaded file has the wrong name and file type.
Any and all thoughts gratefully received.

Try renaming the azw3(x).file to something.azw3 and import that into calibre.

Why are you adding Kindle Unlimited books to Calibre?

He doesn't have a subscription, or they would not be direct purchases. I think.
