Adobe Acrobat Reader for the Palm OS – DRM

OK, so my digital download at Amazon finally went through.  Then, I had to figure out how to get the pdf processed, my palm ‘authorized’, and how to get the file transferred during hotsync.  This was not user friendly.  I almost gave up before I figured out how the process is supposed to work.

Here’s how it works:

  • Download and install Adobe Reader 7.0.5 (you must use the latest version of Reader)
  • Download and install Adobe Reader for PalmOS (or Pocket PC or whatever)
  • Start Adobe Reader for PalmOS and choose to authorize your PDA – a hotsync will be required.
  • Download your PDF.
  • Run Adobe Reader 7.0.5(it should open automatically during the download).
  • Reader 7 will unlock the document for your computer.
  • In Reader 7, choose send to mobile device.
  • Reader for PalmOS will start and will install the document on your PDA.

Now, if only the PalmOS version of Reader would use the full screen 480 x 320 screen, not just 320 x 320.  Ugh.
