902 and pdf's (internet archive)

It seems the 902 doesn't want to display Internet Archive PDF's.
E.g. the one's available here:
http://www.archive.org/details/colle...msof00davirich

Neither the colour nor the black and white PDF will display on my newly received 902. (Out of the box settings & FW.)
Anyone know why?

Direct download links for the pdfs:

I tried viewing the BW version with the xpdf viewer on my Linux desktop and it started generating thousands of errors after the 26th page (page 18 of book). It looks like there may be problems with the PDF files.

The pdf file does not display well in fit width mode or magnified mode of Adobe viewer in my 902. But I can read it without problem in normal mode with 95% or less size.

Many thanks. I hadn't thought to unzoom yet.
PDFviewer fails to load the books. Adobe now works for me the way you describe, at least for the B/W file.
(The colour file just gives me blank pages, where the face of Jesus briefly flashes through when I turn a page. But of course B/W is all I need on this device. :-)

Great, because the ability to read internet archive pdfs was a big reason to try out the 902. :-)
