Calibre 0.6.14 with Mac OSX 10.6.1: didn't convert any PDFs

Hello,

i#m almost new to Calibre but I have used it before. I'm running Snow Leopard and I was glad to read that with Calibre 0.6.14 Snow Leopard compatibility is guaranteed.

So i've downloaded the new version and tried to convert a pdf file into the epub-format - because i want to use and read the files on my iPhone 3g in use with "Stanza".

But everytime I want to convert a PDF there's the following error and can't get the new Calibre version to work:

Quote:
"ERROR: Conversion Error: <b>Failed</b>: Convert book 1 of 1 (iphone-superguide-3rd-edition)

I have deinstalled Calibre and installed the current version over and over again

I've tried it also with an old PDF file where the conversion to an an ePUB-file worked in previous versions of Calibre. The new current version of Calibre comes with the same error message that I mentioned above even if it's the PDF-file that had worked before.

I'm looking forward to every suggestion or solution or is it just a wrong setting?

Thanks a lot in advance.

greetings,

MarcJLH
