    How do I access the SD card?

    Or does the file HAVE to be in the phone?

    If it does, how do I put it there?

    Thanks in advance

    It needs to be converted through Acrobat Reader for Palm OS unless you dave Docs-to-go with PDF support

    Adobe for the Palm uses a desktop conversion tool....IIRC, it puts the files where the palm app will find it.

    This way works for me but has anyone had any problems downloading pdf files with your Treo. Each time i download a pdf mail attachment or from a website, Reader either doesn't find the downloaded file or resets my Treo. Any ideas?

    A downloaded PDF file has not been "converted" and will therefore not open. For natoive PDF's use PalmPDF.

    Yes, it's far better IMO to ditch Adobe Reader and use PalmPDF or Docs To Go 8, both of which handle native PDF files.

    If you wanna keep a lotta PDF's Adobe version's conversion / shrinking featire come sin handy. I have every Treo, Plam and Software user manual on my SD card and the converted ones save significant space.

    What I'd originally posted for was I'm trying to get "D" size drawings onto the phone. Obviously I can't view CAD files on the phone, but I can print them to PDF, and then get those on the phone.

    "D" sized drawings are 24x36 inches. I don't think any of this software was designed to zoom like I need it to. It seems like the PDF viewers are actually quite good, it's just that they all seem to be a littly tiny bit shy of zooming to the point where this is actually useful
