Help Pls

Hello Every one,

I got my nook yesterday through Aramex. I live in the Middle East. I ordered the nook in order to help me in reading my manuals as i work for an airline. but unfortunately it didn't work properly with me.

I put the files in .pdf but they didn't work properly at all. can any one help me in this as i'm outside the US.

Thank u.

Nabil,
Unfortunately, many PDFs do not "re-flow" properly on the nook. I have found that using Mobipocket Creator (install as publisher for PDF support) to convert from PDF to PRC and then Calibre to convert PRC to ePUB works much better for me. Once you have it converted to ePUB, you can use Sigil to clean up any remaining problems you may find with the document.

any small (6-7 inch) e-reader won't the best choice for reading PDF files especially those with multiple columns,,,
anyway, converting PDFs into Epub might help,
