Question One book that Calibre can't convert - is there hope?

Hopefully this isn't a double -the first time I clicked "Submit" nothing appeared to happen.


I finally took the plunge and converted all my 1500+ ebooks to the same format with the wonderful Calibre.

About 1100 of them were from my little Palm Centro with its 4cm*4cm screen.

I was especially looking forward to reading one particular book on the (relatively) giant screen of my Sony reader.

Of course, Murphy's Law came into effect - that .pdb file was the only one that could not be converted.

Is there any hope for it, or will I have to read it again on the Small Screen (where, I just checked, it displays perfectly)?
