    I read a couple threads on this and didn't see a solution, so I thought I would ask again.

    I have installed the Palm PDF 3.05 from Adobe's site.

    I first tried hotsyncing some PDF files to my machine and got this:

    HotSync operation started 5/5/2004 10:22:38 AM
    ERROR: The following file(s) could not be installed to the SecureDigital (SD) Card because there is no application on your handheld to open these files.
    If you have recently installed such an application, please run that application and then perform a HotSync operation.
    Reston - MyTravelPlans.pdf
    UK - MyTravelPlans.pdf
    Install To Card synchronization failed
    Conduit Error: Unknown error. (1000)

    Then I tried copying the files to the SD card with zLauncher and I wasn't able to view them either.

    Is there a way to work around this?

    Thanks,
    Darrell

    I believe you can not.

    You must first use the windows app to convert the pdf and hot sync.

    The thing the windows app converts it too is a valid PDF, with a different
    filename extension.

    I tried just renaming a pdf, and copying it over without any success. I
    think something gets added into the LAUNCHER file to do with the PDF.

    This is a pain for me as it means that:
    I cannot copy the PDFs to the device using linux.
    I cannot read a pdf from the web or attached to an email.

    I read a post on the adobe forum which also said this is not possible.

    Hope this helps,
    Tim

    Yes, Adobe Acrobat files are not native to Palm, they must be converted in the desktop app., before use.

    Thanks... I am trying desperately to smile as I convert from a PocketPC to the Treo. At every crossroad I keep getting met with things that aren't possible.

    Definately means I have to fairly substantially change the way I work. Bummer.

    Yeah, I'm having problems with the palm way as well.

    I used to use a Psion 3, then a Psion 5 - the Treo is notionally much more powerful (CPU, RAM etc) but the software seems so much more limited.

    It is a cool toy though!
