Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Apologies in advance for my idiocy.
, .mobi and .azw (kindle format) are almost the same. If you have any non-DRM file of either type, just rename it and see what happens. I had 1 or 2 non-DRMed .azw files, but they would not read on Aldiko. I simply renamed them to .mobi and hey presto - Aldiko imported them and they work fine.
Probably the kindle app reads only .azw files.
