I suspect that the file is in a format that Calibre cannot handle. The .pdb extension just indicates a container type (rather like .xip) and says nothing about the format of the data within the file.

iSilo is not a support format.

Appreciate your comments.

Could u please indicate whether there is going to be any calibre support for isilo format in the future? cos there are lot of academic books in this format.

I really would like any suggestions to get around this problem. I cant afford isilo (live overseas).

Thank u

There are currently no plans to support iSilo (any version) as a conversion format in calibre.
