Device: Droid X new Android app conversion

I've been converting ePubs to .pdb with great success. Now has a new beta Android app (not to be confused the B&N's ereader app). When I transfer my successfully converted .pdb books to the Droid X, the only thing that opens is the metadata I inserted. The body of the book won't open. I tried a conversion without inserting the metadata, but then the book doesn't even show up in the library. Then I tried converting to plain .doc and ztxt but with the same result. No book in the library. I emailed their tech support people and got a response saying it had to be a .pdb file and to use their software Drop Book or eBook Studio for conversions. I could do that, but I'd rather have the beautifully converted Calibre ebooks. I could also use a different reader for my device, but their app has all the best features, mainly autoscroll so I don't get carpal tunnel syndrome in my thumb from flipping pages. So . . . if anyone has any suggestions, please share.
