I have downloaded Calibre

in order to convert books bought from an Australian website into .pdb format...

Now I don't understand what is in (input) and out (output) formats... I suppose that's why I don't understand Cricket!

I would like to convert epub format to pdb format, so I can read it on my palm...

Can someone help me with the in's and out's (NOT on Cricket)..

Thanks

input is what you have (ie epub) and output is what you want (pdb). Also it will only work with DRM-free files.

Nobody understands cricket! Cricket and computers were invented by the same guy. He also wrote the instruction manuals.

I don't know if Calibre converts from epub to pdb. It didn't convert FROM pdb to epub for me, so I downloaded a free program called ABC Amber Palm converter. It was easy enough for me to figure out how to do a simple conversion (and I have difficulty setting a digital alarm clock!)

calibre supports EPUB and PDB both as input and output. As stated it does not support DRMed files. Also, PDB is a container format (think of it like a zip file) and calibre only supports PalmDoc, ztxt and eReader formats within the PDB file.

@Stitchawl, open a ticket and attach the file that is failing. I will look into it.

Off Topic, cricket is a very easy game to understand :-)

You have two sides, one out in the field and one in.

Each man that's in the side that's in, goes out, and when he's out, he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out.

When they are all out the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in out.

Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

When both sides have been in and out including the not-outs, that's the end of the game.

That's easy: Rugby is a game for hooligans played by gentlemen (as opposed to football*, aka soccer (bleeugh!!!) which is a game for gentlemen played by hooligans)

* this is the game where people move the ball around with their feet, as opposed to all those other games which, although called football, mainly entail carrying the thing in one's hands and/or throwing it around. Picking 3 examples at (not) random:

- American football, which entails throwing and hitting, and a little kicking
- Australian Rules football (I'm not convinced by the idea of the words 'Australian' and 'rules' in the same sentence, but whatever ...), which entails throwing and running, and a little kicking
- Erm... Rugby football - which entails throwing, hitting, running *and* kicking, and is therefore, I suppose, more sophisticated

For completeness, soccer (bleeugh!!) is almost all kicking (including, or in some cases, preferably, one's opponents)

I'm sure this has advanced the discussion immensely

Thank you! I heard this one many years ago, but have been unable to find it since... Love it...

Thanks for the offer, UN, but I wasn't having any probs with conversions. I was having probs with Cricket, at least I was having until KeithO posted an explanation. Now that I understand that, I'm going to try my hand at understanding quantum physics... or women.
