Convert MOBI to PRC


.prc is essentially the same as .mobi. .prc was the file extension originally used, later changed to .mobi to reflect the Mobipocket name. There may be slight differences in supported formatting, but for your purposes, they are the same.

A "PRC" file is just a "container" format, a little like a "ZIP" file. A PRC file can contain data in any format whatsoever. Yes, a PRC file may well be a Mobipocket book (in which case the Kindle can read it), but it could also be a thousand other things too, which the Kindle can't read. So to sum up, any DRM-free Mobipocket book can be a PRC file, and the Kindle will read it, but not all PRC files are Mobipocket books.
