Reader 9 supports pdf portfolio format. A lot of 3rd party pdf software does not. It looks like the library Calibre uses for its pdf handling does not support pdf portfolio. Why not check if you have a pdf portfolio format document , and if so, convert it to a standard pdf? It sure sounds like that's your problem. Portfolio is a bunch of different formats stuck together into a single pdf container. You're losing all but the first one. You'd be doing people a favor if you can confirm that's your problem and report back.
