Try converting to LRF in Calibre. See if that works.

What was the format of the original books?

I would convert from the original to epub or lrf using Calibre. Pdf is probably the worst choice for your reader. And trying to reconvert these pdf's isn't going to work. You need the originals.

Does the PDF open on your computer? If not, it is probably the file.

If it does open, another possibility is to copy and past the whole PDF text into Word and save it as a RTF and then convert it LRF or EPUB.

You can try using caliber to directly convert from PDF to LRF as robkat suggested. I had an epub that wouldn't open on my reader (but did open on my computer) and converting it to LRF worked (don't ask me why, though).

Also you might try Staza desktop to convert. I've used it when Calibre was buggy with certain books.
