Fails to open fb2

I own a 950 with PRS+ 2.1 alpha for 950 installed. When I try to open a *.fb2 book, always says something like "failed in converting the book"

Any idea? Thanks so much

Hi,

there is existing support thread for PRS+ here. (name is misleading a bit, I admit).
There were bugs related to opening fb2, but all known ones where fixed.

Built-in converter fails to convert about 10% of the fb2 books though, but what we've seen so far all of them were mis-formed (usually links are broken). Changing converter to be less picky about following fb2 standard is planned.

I hope this helps.

However, using Calibre to manage FB2 may actually work better. Give Calibre FB2 and send ePub to the Reader.
