You are WAY behind in versions. Try 0.3.106 and see what happens and then if need be posted a bug report.

You;ll have to bug the authors of unrtf about this as it's an unrtf problem as far as i can tell.

OK maybe I am just really dense :-) but this program has NO right click options and only 3 buttons Add Delete and Edit Meta Information

Where exactly is the "convert this" to lrf button?? ie HOW are you converting files??

----Edit----

Ahh there is none (found these files called xxx2lrf.exe's :-)

SO I dragged one of my files onto this and hey that works. One problem. I tried a lit file it processes does its thing finishes then does parsing html than converting to bbeb and stays there. I am going to let it run (4-5 minutes now) does it take that long? (ok it finished but ??? no file? the window just goes away (completed task) but there is no file? where does it store the file? I would assume same directory as the original file?

the rtf2lrf crashes on EVERY single RTF I have tried so far. No error just crashes.

this is latest version (downloaded 10 minutes ago) in XP Pro.

Would love to get this working :-) I hate waiting forever for the reader to "format" a book and then hope it works :-)

Open a terminal Start->Run type cmd.exe
Type libprs500-beta and press enter now you will have a convert button.

I don't have a Reader so I've never given much attention to this thread. But if the Reader supports RTF why do you feel the need to convert it? (Sure because it displays better.) Just uploading RTF files to the Reader isn't enough? aren't there any formatting tips for making an improved RTF without the need convert it (fonts, sizes, margins... etc)?

(Since my decision on which device I should buy is going to be determined by the RTF readability, that's why I ask you this, specially in order to compare Sony's and Cybook's RTF readability).

the sony reader rtf viewer doesn't support images, links. I personally detest RTF as a format.

But we have no idea what will happen with the new Sony Reader due out in October. So I'd wait to find out how it displays RTF. If you like, once the local SonyStyle has them in stock, I can pop an RTF (one of your choice if you want) on an SD card and take it with me to see how it displays.

Try it from the commandline using rtf2lrf and post the result.

I mean, it happens with all rtf files, so it's probably a problem with my computer. Do you need Microsoft Office for this to run properly?
