Super-large pdf support on Jetbook/lite

Hey all.

I read a lot of pdf books, especially of the google books variety. Some of them have OCR done and others don't (not sure if that matters). Anyway, many of the books I have are large, like 60-90mb. Will the JetBook and/or JetBook lite handle pdfs of this size?

Thanks for your help.

HG

P.S. The type of pdf I would be reading can be found here (works Vol. 1).

I just loaded up about 600 MB of Dungeons and Dragons 4th edition manuals in PDF format last night on a 4 GB SDHD card. Some of the files are very large--70-90 MB--and all but one of them opened just fine on my Jetbook Lite with firmware 0.14n. They are image scans, not OCR.

And I couldn't get my OEF Mongoose Traveller (about 7m PDF, text & images mixed), to even OPEN on my Jetbook . Just drops me back to the bootup menu on the device when I try it.

I have an engineering handbook that is 137 meg and it opens just fine as long as it is not over two levels deep in the directory
