Newbie question - pdftohtml error
I have searched the forums and not found the answer to my problem.
I have a Sony PRS-505 and Calibre (0.6.14). I want to be able to read my Open University course books on the reader. It is available as .pdf but as it has wide margins it makes it awkward to read as the font is tiny and if I use the medium sized font the line breaks are terrible. I tried converting from .pdf to other formats in the hope that this would remove the wide margin and make the text better fromatted.
However I get the following error:
"ERROR: Conversion Error: <b>Failed</b>: Convert book 1 of 1 (u116 Block 1)
Convert book 1 of 1 (u116 Block 1)
InputFormatPlugin: PDF Input running on C:\Documents and Settings\wadsworthp\Calibre Library\The Open University\u116 Block 1 (1)\u116 Block 1 - The Open University.pdf
Converting file to html...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "worker.py", line 103, in <module>
File "worker.py", line 90, in main
File "calibre\gui2\convert\gui_conversion.pyo", line 19, in gui_convert

File "calibre\ebooks\pdf\input.pyo", line 33, in convert
File "calibre\ebooks\pdf\pdftohtml.pyo", line 68, in pdftohtml
I have tired other .pdfs with the same results and other output formats with similar results.
Any clues as to how to fix this?

I tried a re-install and get the same error. I'll try a different computer.
I assume that I only need to download Calibre and don't need anything else?

I must report I'm getting the exact same error trying to convert two different pdf files, on two different machines with the latest calibre. They are fresh installs of the latest calibre. That is, I've never used calibre before and only installed it today on my computers.
Could the latest version, 0.6.14 (28 Sep, 2009) have broken something?
