View Full Version : Convert eReader Dictionary to MOBI?

06-26-2010, 04:08 AM
Hi - I purchased Merriam Websters Collegiate from Peanut Press a long time back -- I'm amazed that it's actually still available for download from my account, which has survived getting bought by Palm, and then Barnes and Noble(?)


I wanted to see if I could convert it into something I could use on the Kindle. Unfortunately some of the scripts/apps out there for decrypting PDB files didn't work. Both complained about the format, I guess.

Creator: PPrs
Type: PDct

Any thoughts? Also - any advice on how to then convert this to MOBI? Can Calibre grok dictionaries?

Dictionaries are not standard files and the standard decryption will not work. I do not believe Calibre can grok dictionaries of any flavor. I think you will need to buy a Kindle version of the dictionary.

Aw, bummer. Ok, thanks.
