- Auto Kindle eBook Converter converts some of the most-used desktop formats to a Kindle-friendly MOBI for free. doc to mobi isn’t one of them, though. From Cnet downloads, a source I wholeheartedly trust for virus-free downloads.
- Convert DOC to PDF For Word using this download from Cnet downloads. Then use Calibre to convert to mobi etc.
- Mobipocket Creator 4.2 Publisher Edition. Install the Publisher Edition. The Home Edition does not have the document conversion feature.
Calibre seems to be a better solution for converting between formats. Except, it does not convert doc to mobi (for Kindle). The mobi software is good for authoring directly, but Calibre’s more flexible.
