"File decode failed"

Recently I read an article saying that you can convert a Word document, including images, for reading on an ereader by exporting it as a pdf file. I have just tried to do this with a family history I've been writing, but since my version of Word does not have that facility I opened the document in OpenOffice and exported it as a pdf from there.

When I opened the file on my ereader it seemed to have worked perfectly, until I got to the 4th or 5th page, when I got the message "file decode failed" and the document closed.

I then tried using Calibre to convert the pdf file to pdf, and also to epub. The new pdf document had very strange formatting, and when I opened the epub document on my ereader the ereader closed down.

Can anyone explain why this message may have appeared? Perhaps I was rather naive to think it could be that easy to produce an illustrated document for my ereader - although the photos came out perfectly. (Organisation charts just appeared as solid green rectangles, but the article I had read warned that these would be a problem.)

I would be very grateful for any help!
