    Hello there !!!

    the file with the extension called .mobi is different file other
    than the document file.

    so it will not run on your PC with the application like
    word, Adobe Flash, notepad++, etc which you are using.

    you need to download and install mobi reader from the
    given below url :-

    http://download.cnet.com/Mobipocket-..._4-195528.html

    download and install it.
    it will work.

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting in EALP.

    Hello Dear Dude ...

    Generally A file with MOBI file extension is a MobiPocket eBook file

    And the Easiest way to open the file is that/..


    DOUBLE CLICK ON IT

    Then let your PC decide which default application should open the file


    If no Program opens then MOBI file then you probably do not have an application installed Which can view and or Edit MOBI files

    You must take care when you open Executable file formats received via email or Downloaded from websites you are not familiar with



    ALL THE VERY GOOD LUCK

    Hi..................,

    Issue is that device to run the mobi files as a document rather than a book is there is a personal dag tag placed in the .mobi files
    This tag need to be removed by reconverting the book without problematic PDOC.

    Steps ----->
    * Connect to the Pc and move the desired .mobi to the device.
    * To perform the conversion you need to download the Calibre which is free and and powerful e book
    * Once software is installed launch it.
    * Go to the top of the selection and select add book.
    * Browse to the location select open.
    * Once the file has been imported select the file and press convert book.
    * When convert is done then select to open.
    * In right panel go to Personal doc tag and delete that.

    Thanks
