Converting Kindle files for use on a Kobo reader.

by strongsally / January 20, 2012 9:22 PM PST

I was gifted a Kindle pre loaded with some travel books. I returned the Kindle ereader and purchased a Kobo ereader. Can I convert the Mobi files to allow them to be read on the Kobo? I have the Mobi files in my computer.

just convert mobi to epub, kobo reader supports epub format, but it can't read mobi books.
then you can transfer your books to kobo reader via usb or email or other ways.
