changing default conversion rules for a device
I'd like to reset the conversion default rule for a specific device.
When I send to my device, a blackberry curve running the mobipocketreader software, callibre wants to convert to (or send) the .mobi file. I would rather have it convert to and send .pdb files (they work better for me). I can't see how to do that, so I "manually" tell callibre to convert to pdb, then "manually" copy the files from windows explorer from the callibre/pc location to the blackberry e-book folder.
Is it possible to reset the default conversion type for a specific device so I can just use the send-to-device and hav it convert the way I want?

You should configure the device interface plugin for your device. You can set the list of format(s) that are allowed for that device type. If when you try and send the book to the device from Calibre there is not already a book in a supported format, then Calibre will try and convert to the one that is at the top of the list for the device type.
