Document transferred to the K marked "read-only" Wassup?

I frequently send my own documents to the Kindle via email/USB transfer. Today I sent an updated version of an existing document. The email from Amazon came back as usual, I saved the file, and when I tried to drag it to the Documents subfolder of the Kindle, I kept getting a message that it was "read-only" and could not be transferred.

When I checked the attributes of the file, it definitely was not read-only. I broke down and attached it and paid my $0.15 to have it sent via Whispernet, and it arrived perfectly OK. The very same document that previously via the free email was marked read-only.

I have transferred docs many times via the free email with no problem. Any clue what happened this time?

Well, no answer anyway, but disregard this. Today tried it with another document and it worked perfectly. Must have been some glitch in their converting it.

There's another thread floating in this forum (can't dig it out of my memory yet) about this issue. Apparently some books/docs got loaded as "read only" files as if they were periodicals - which shows up as "keep" on your screen. May be similar to what happened with you.

Thanks for that info. Glad it is not just me...well not glad, but relieved. I thought I might have goofed up somehow, but could not see how.

Being a miser, I hate to pay the 15 cents when I can get it free, so next time, if there is one, will wait a day or two and try again.
