    Hello there,
    I'm trying to find a way to transfer PDFs to HTML to read them with the ebook reader,
    it's so hard to read something with the PDFviewer, you have to zoom in and zoom out and the letters get distorted.

    Anyways, can some one tell me of a way to do this? I have a few MS Certifications I want to study but they are in PDF and I would love to user the ebook reader since is so much practical.

    Thanks!
    TheH

    Just a hint.
    Maybe you should try Adobe Professional 8.

    As far as I know with Acrobat pro you can only save a PDF as a word document, you can't save it as HTML, and you can convert from different documents to a PDF but not vise versa.
    Maybe I'm wrong but thats how I think it is.

    It didn't work, It only gave me an HTML index and converted all of the PDF pages into JPEGs.. : 9 ( .

    Isn't there any other way to convert a PDF into an "touch ebook" compatible format?

    Thanks again!

    What kind of PDF are you converting? That would be the usual extraction if all the pages were images (like scanned or faxed pages) rather than true text (like you'd get if you printed from Word straight to a PDF file). You can kind of tell by the size - a 9pg with few images would be under 800k or so. If it's large (over 2MB), it's probably image based.

    If they're scanned page, you're kind of stuck unless you have an OCR program. I don't know of one online.
