Question ePub fails to convert

I have an ePub file that won't convert - I can open it up and edit it in Calibre's editor, view it, no problem, but it won't convert to any format. I just get a Failed: Convert book 1 of 1 message.

Here's the conversion log;

Did you VALIDATE while it was in the editor? (the ladybug icon)
(and correct RED flagged errors)

For some reason I didn't get email alerts about the responses here, but I did end up trying the ladybug (for the first time) and following its instructions has done the trick, so thank you!

Smile problem with calibre in converting from epub to pdf

I did not understand the answer to your subscriber's problem which is also mine.

Basically, you open the epub in calibre's editor (right click on the book and then edit book) then click on the error check icon (a red ladybug with a stripe on it's back). If it shows any errors, correct those errors and try converting the book again. You can use the try to fix all fixable errors automatically option though my preference is manual correction. If you attempt to convert an ebook with errors, GIGO is the usual result.

Not all errors can be auto-magically fixed. Sometimes it takes some head scratching to figure our even where the real error is. (The error log shows WHEN it reached the point where there HAD to be an error, because of what you are now trying to do. eg close more div's than were open

Which is why I prefer to manually correct the errors. I've had a couple of unpleasant experiences where an attempt to auto-fix errors has left the ebook in worse shape than it started off in.

In addition to running the error check ladybug and then having Calibre automatically fix the errors, running Beautify Files can also fix errors that will cause problems.
