Having Some Trouble w/ PDF's (No DRM)

Pretty much all my books are in epub format. I do have a very limited few that are in PDF's. Stuff that just was way to much trouble to convert to epub. One of them is the ebook Dragons Fury - Jeff Head.pdf which the author freely gives away on his website. It opens completely fine on my notebook computer (Win7). But for some reason it will not open on the PB360. The file is 4.3MB so its not a size issue. I get an error when I try and open it.

Quote:
PDF VIEWER - Cannot open book. Perhaps the book is damaged or protected.
If its damaged it sure doesn't seem to be at least on my notebook. And its definitely not protected, unless its some protection I don't seem to understand.

I would try other PDF's lol but I don't have any. Guess I need to track down another PDF ebook and see if it gives me the same problem.

guns what firmware are you on?

I'm on the previous version and Dragon's Fury opened just fine on my 360 with pdfviewer and adobe viewer. The cover rendered better with pdfviewer.

Well I downgraded to 14.2, but still the issue persists. Same exact thing happens. Can I ask you a favor Dulin's Books guy (lol). Can you email me the copy you have. Just to double check that my copy isn't defective and that its the PB360.

I could download it again but that won't completely determine whats at fault. My email is guns4hire at gmail dot com.

Well thats very strange. It worked. For some reason two different PDF's of this ebook would not open. But your copy that you sent me opened up just fine.

Well thank you very much.

Maybe download problems? Did you try the book on your desktop Adobe Reader? Mister Dulin's Books is Mister Dulin himself, so you don't have to call him Books! I don't think he minds, though!!

Both the files I had of this ebook (older and newer version) opened fine in Adobe Reader and Foxit as well. Nothing was wrong with them as far as I could tell.

Oh and calling him Mr Dulin's Books was a joke.

No that wasn't it. I let it sit a couple times once for 5 minutes and another for 10. Then Charlie sent me the exact same file (as the one I was trying to open) and his opened up immediately.
