    I have several mobi files i downloaded from my pc to the kindle app but only 2 of them will appear when i open the kindle app. Itis alwaya the same 2. I tryed uninstalling and reinstalling the app from market but still the same result. I am on cyan 7.3 on viewsonic gtab. These same files open fine on my pc kindle app and my kindle. Any help would be appreciated. I am fairly new to android.

    Yes, they appear under the kindle file and have moved it from internal to eternal and checked the files look exactly like the 2 that appear when iopen the application. I think i am going to try
    Deleting and reloading them next. I have searched on the net and can find no others having this
    Problem.

    Maybe that .mobi files are corrupt.
    You could try it with an other .mobi reader, e.g. iReader (in Market).

    Thank you, thank you! !! The files have to be bad. It sees them but wouldnot open anybut the same
    2. I feel kindof stupid. I have spent so much timegetting flashing roms figured out i think my brain is
    in overload. The other readers i tryed would not read mobi. Nearing the last wrinkle of getting it like i
    want it. Thanks again.!!!!!

    I did the free one and it does open them, just pops up and ask whether to open as
    html or text. I said text and it opened fine except for some chinese writing
    Here and there. Served the purpose though and i reloaded my files and all is well.
    The kindle app is great. The problem never was the app. Never occurred to me
    the files might be corrupted since they were fine on my other devices. Thanks again.
