    PDF to ePub

    I have a few PDF files that I would like to convert into ePub format So i may use aldiko or laputa eBook reader on my mid 7015. I tried calibre and it just screwed up the file completely. Is there any sort of reliable converter out there?

    I'm in the same predicament, I just bought my tablet today to use as an ebook reader and pdf magazine reader. Researching options now for pdf, I too have Calibre on desktop and agree the pdf to epub conversions are not that great at all.

    Why would you do that? Just root it and install Adobe Reader.

    I have saved the Adobe Reader to my desktop, however I'm unable to find or download a file browser to be able to reach the install file. I've only had the tablet abt 10 hours so far so haven't gotten to the root conversion yet but have the instructions saved. I just had success with Calibre though in converting a pdf to epub in Calibre, it seems to work if there's not alot of graphics or nice page layout.

    I dont feel like getting a different application just so I can read something. I already have two which are capable I am just wondering if there is some sort of converter.Maybe the pdf file was bad when I converted it with calibre.

    No need to root device for Adobe Reader. I was able to install Reader by setting my device to 'debug' mode and using an app called FILE MANAGER. File manager will install 'outside' party apps...my Adobe Reader works fine...no rooting done.

    Calibre ebook manager. Its free and it converts all types of files for use on mobile devices.

    I use it for converting my ebooks so I can read them in aldiko (I personally like the interface better than Kindle).

    Works great with PDFs!

    Trish,
    I'm using "Linda Manager" from AppsLib for a file browser.
    Another option is AndExplorer:
    Android free file manager, explorer - AndExplorer

    I have the same problem as others report. Calibre hoses up books with graphics, or in my case sections of programming code examples.
    I got Adobe Reader from Adobe's web site:
    Adobe

    Was able to install the Adobe Reader by getting a file browser on the pad. AppsLib finally worked for me. I like the Alkido reader for epub, but wanted also to view my pdf magazines and files. The Adobe seems kinda glitchy (it might be just me) I wish Foxit would put out something for this.

    I have not used any converter to convert PDF files to epub files but I have searched for you a new software which can covert your files. Try it download.cnet.com/PDF-to-ePub-Converter/3000-20412_4-75115614.html I think, it's working fine......
