Convert eReader Dictionary to MOBI?
Hi - I purchased Merriam Websters Collegiate from Peanut Press a long time back -- I'm amazed that it's actually still available for download from my account, which has survived getting bought by Palm, and then Barnes and Noble(?)
I wanted to see if I could convert it into something I could use on the Kindle. Unfortunately some of the scripts/apps out there for decrypting PDB files didn't work. Both complained about the format, I guess.
Any thoughts? Also - any advice on how to then convert this to MOBI? Can Calibre grok dictionaries?

Dictionaries are not standard files and the standard decryption will not work. I do not believe Calibre can grok dictionaries of any flavor. I think you will need to buy a Kindle version of the dictionary.
