    Let me explain, one professor of one subject, expect us read a lot of pages from some manuals about producction, marketing... corporate stuff.

    The problem, i wont print it, and i wont have enough time to be in front of my laptop to read it all so i wondered i could read it in my ds but.. it is in pdf format.

    I have acrobat professional so i can export the pdf file to a multitude of formats.

    even html, yes, the format dso reads but... with no images >.

    Can't you export it to JPG? If not I know there are PDF-JPG converters.

    Then just ComicBookDS-ize them and you're done.

    Yeah just convert them into jpg and then use the comic book ds converter to convert it to a cbds file and then view it on your DS with ComicBookDS

    Can't pictoDS convert .pdf to .cbds already? I'm pretty sure the last time I checked it could convert pdfs, but I don't know if text-only documents will affect it in any way...

    If thats the case, its as simple as converting and copying, and then you can read them with comicbookds.

    If you can highlight the words, just copy them all into notepad.

    Use PaperLess Printer to print it to RTF or HTML, THEN copy the words.

    I have a question relating to this.

    When I use PictoDS I run the pictods.exe file and select the file I want to convert. However when I hit proceed it will not work, it comes up with some error "D:/Program" and saying the system can not find the path specified. I have been trying to convert .pdf files. Are their any special tools I need or procedures I need to follow before I can get this to work?

    No, just like said below, try somewhere with no spaces in the path.
    I use D:\Programs\PictoDS.

    I ran into that issue. Turns out I didn't have a Jave Virtual Machine running. I installed that, PictoDS worked just fine.

    LeeTV, put PictoDS in a folder with no spaces (like "C:\PictoDS") and see if that helps.
