Amazon Kindle and IPad EPUB Fix

Unread post by AddictedToReading »

Now that Amazon supports sending ePub files to Kindle ereaders and Kindle apps by email, some people are reporting errors with the formatting after Amazon converts the ePub to Kindle format.

Apparently this happens because the Kindle conversion services defaults to ISO-8859-1 when character encoding isn’t specified in the file. Technically ePubs should be set to UTF-8.

Here is a handy tool that tries to fix these problems....

I encountered epub books that are not uploading to kindle. Mobi is not accepted anymore. Do you have any other workaround?

I've asked around and most said that they convert it to AZW3 and then it uploads. Waiting for an answer from a freind
