Does MSReader read .PDB files as well?
      #13180 - 07/12/04 01:17 PM

Hi everybody,

Ordinarily I would have taken to time to research the topic myself, but as I am short of time at the moment I was wondering if someone would be able to tell me if I could open Palm .PDB format files on my Microsoft Reader without making any converting to the .PDF. Of course, I could just make it easier on myself and install Palm Reader, but I'd like to keep as few programs installed if possible.

Thanks in advance for any replies and suggestions!

I just switched over from Palm to a Dell Axim, and rather than convert all my PDB's to pdf or buy yet another piece of new software, I ran an old one that I already had. I have DocReaderWin (got it on palmgear a couple years ago, PM me if you can't find it.) I used it to open the PDB's then saved them as TXT files. They look fine, and open easily in PocketWord.

A side note: If you want to read eBooks that you've purchased, you will need to use eReader as it's the only one that handles eReader pdb digital rights management.

Look for a free ebook/rss reader / libary called "mobipocket". it reads PDB
