I have a Kindle Voyage. I tried to transfer an AZW3 or MOBI book with 17MB size to it using Calibre. This book was previously converted from EPUB.

But it does not appear in my Kindle Voyage. I have tried both hard and soft restart. I checked the file folder, the book does exist. Currently I have around ~750books in my Kindle Voyage.

Other book has no problem appearing in my Kindle.

How can I resolve this issue?

  • Have you tried reconverting it from the original EPUB and upload it? If the book got somehow corrupted your reader will probably ignore it.

  • Try to copy AZW3 directly to document folder, it porbably wont work so as anthon said, it is necessary to reconvert it again from EPUB

One of the reasons this can happen is if the Calibre "convert to MOBI" preferences form has the Personal Dog tag set to [PDOC]. Then it will not show up in some versions of Kindle in the list of "Books", but it will still appear under "Documents".

Is not possible to change this tag using Calibre. A workaround is to convert it back to EPUB and then again to MOBI, this time making sure that the Personal Dog tag is set to [EBOK] or not set at all.

This thread has a nice discussion of the issue.
