Sony ereader troubleshoot

Hi, I have only had my Sony ereader for a short while. For the second time I have a pdf that the reader won't let me read after a certain number of pages (in this case 46): each time I get this far the pdf closes and I am returned to the reader's homepage. The pdf reads OK past this point on my laptop in the 'reader for PC'. Does anyone know why this is happening?

PDFs are compromised on small devices of limited capability at the best of times. The occasional time I have had a similar problem I have found that recreating the PDF has solved it, so may be worth your trying.

An easy way is to use the likes of PrimoPDF which installs on the PC as a virtual printer. Open the PDF on the PC with whatever you use on that to read PDFs, and from that print the PDF with PrimoPDF selected, with its default security options, as the printer. That will create a copy of the troublesome PDF which you may find works.

I always try and convert any pdf to epub.. (using calibre) I have had that problem in the past.. the T1 will get stuck on "reflow" and dump you to the home screen.. in fact I generally avoid pdfs whenever possible

I seem to remember a very old topic about this very same thing here and I think the problem was the pdf file itself. If you have any pdf software like Adobe or Foxit, you might try resaving the pdf, or using the tools to optimize the pdf.

Does this happen with all pdfs or just one?
