    I have several PDF files that open and read fine on my Mac. I copied them to a thumb drive, then use File Manager HD to put them in the Documents folder. When I try to open them with Adobe Reader, I get an error message saying the file is damaged or corrupted. Same error when I try to open it with PDF To Go.

    The file sizes are correct when viewed with File Manager. The files are manuals and other commercial products. Any suggestions/comments?

    Are these DRM protected (usually purchased) PDFs? (do they require a password or something?).

    There have been other reports of purchased or DRM protected PDFs not reading on the tablet, but I have never seen the problem myself.

    That being said, I don't install many big pdfs onto the tablet directly. I upload them all to my Google Docs account. Admittedly this means I can't read them without a WIFI connection.
