Does anyone know how to convert opf files to mobi files or any other that kindle will support? I'm not having much luck on my own.

The only opf file I know of is part of the epub spec. It's not a book file, it's a metadata file extracted from an epub.

What do you use now to read these files?

This is the first time I've had any experience with an opf file extention. I was e-mailed several books that were kindle compatable but a few had the opf extention. The file sizes are really small so you're probably right about it just an extraction from an epub. I've converted pdf to mobi files, though, so I thought I'd put it out there and see if I could get some info.

You could always open it with a text editor and see what's inside.

opf files are not books. They're metadata used by readers to display info ABOUT a book, and by Calibre, for the same purpose. Look for .mobi, or .azw for the actual book.

Thanks to you both. I'll get rid of them.
