Default Kindle for Android problem

Evening all, sorry if this has already been covered, I did a quick search but didn't find a similar thread.

I've just got a Galaxy Tab and have downloaded the Kindle app, so far I have been able to download my "Amazon" books and subscription to the Daily Telegraph without any problems, however, I have been unable to get the Kindle App to recognise any of my "non-Amazon" books.

After some Googling I happened upon the Personal Documents facility on my Kindle page at Amazon, however I was unable to deliver the file to my Galaxy, though I can see it waiting there ready to be delivered.

Has anyone experienced this before and if you have does anyone have any tips on how to fix this?

Put the file in the kindle directory on the Tab.

That was the first thing I tried. I can see the files on my Tab when I go through the file system to the Kindle folder but the app can't see them.

What file format is that? I have been using Kindle on my phone and Tablet for a long time and whenever I put the files in its folder it works perfectly fine.

And you put them into \\sdcard\kindle?

I just tried on my phone again, installed Kindle, put books in .mob and it is seeing them with no problem.
