What happens when you try to manually copy the file to the Mobipocket folder on your iLiad?

Does the file have a name with odd characters? What software gives you the error?

Same error when copying manually. Copying other files are fine. Copying this specific files to other places is also fine. That's what frustrated me. The software I am using is mobipocket.
many many thanks

Copying to other places on the iLiad is fine?

Try running scandisk on your iLiad when it's connected to your PC and also try to download the dictionary again. It sounds like corruption somewhere...

Solved!
It turns out that it's the problem of internal memory and other people have seen it. The trick is to reformat the internal drive.

See this thread at forum.irexnet.com or look here.

Remember to recreate the folder structure.

Just copy all your files (keep the folder structure) to your computer. Then go to My computer, right click on iliad volumn, and choose format. I use FAT format as it is before. I hope this is helpful for other people who had similar problem.
