Pen not available in some PDFs

Hi,

I'm brand new to this, so apologize if this is ridiculously simple (have searched the forum).

I have all my PDFs on a CF card, transferred there via USB (Vista). In some of them, the pen to scribble with is available while in others it is not. Looking at the file structure, it seems that the Iliad creates a subdirectory with a manifest.xml file for some but not others. Any suggestions? This is the main task for which I bought the Iliad.

Thanks very much.
Tom

Are some dirs marked as somehow "write-protected" on your CF card? Making a sub dir, moving the pdf file to it and create a manifest.xml/scribble file is a must-do for iLiad, otherwise it can't write the last read page in manifest.xml etc./scribbles.
