I have a collection of .pdb ebooks and I am unable to find an application to read them.
After installing abiword plugins palm documents (pdb) are listed as recognized but I could not import them. Abiword just stopped responding after a while before a book was imported.
What application should I use to view pdb files?
What is the source format? A pdb is like saying "a database" - there are many formats. If it's PalmDoc/AportisDoc you can use FBReader. Otherwise, let us know and we'll try to point you to an application.
What I'm trying to say is that a ".pdb", which is a Palm database file, can have many formats. The applications that the file is used with - iSilo, PalmReader, MobileDB, Plucker, DocumentsToGo, etc. - determines the format of the pdb.
What application(s) do you use to open these files on the Palm?
Unfortunately I do not know because my father is a Palm user. I just took a few books with me to try resolve this problem.
I shall check out tomorrow what application is used to open these files and report back.
