Problem with converting PDF

Hey there
I have a pdf file I want to view on my Kindle Paperwhite.
First I tried converting to MOBI with Calibre but it didn't work.
I tried k2opt (older versions as well) - the results is two BSDs. I tried version 2.01 as well.
I tried cropping with Briss but the result was not clean enough.
Tried converting the cropped file with Calibre - same result as without cropping.
Then tried converting the cropped file to word with the hope that the conversion will clean it up a bit - nothing...
Any suggestions?
Thank you

If you can post (or send me a private message if you don't want to post) the PDF source file, I'll try to see why k2pdfopt is giving you a BSD. Did that happen with 2.01? What system are you running on, and how much RAM do you have? Which specific versions resulted in a BSD? Also, how large is the PDF file (page count ant bytes)?
