What's happening is the embedded reader is requesting portions of the file, rather than downloading the whole thing. I believe a possible cause was some type of firewall, but not sure..

ooops, sorry..Looks like you downloaded the file before opening it. Do you by any chance have dial up internet? I know the problem arised with me when I had dial up. It could be just one byte of a whole 5 mb that is rendering it unreadable, but I think there is tools out there to fill the gaps.

" I believe a possible cause was some type of firewall, but not sure.."

"..Looks like you downloaded the file before opening it."

thanks for this option but buddy plz do not take it offence, just a humble request; there r so so many of them and its something between our groups of friends....so would be a bit hesitant (plz again do not take it wrong)...

You can check out this site. It says something about sending them in for repair. Right now I can't find the site I was looking for, but I'll keep looking.

Most file transfer programs do for some reason damage these files, but you could ask your friends to zip the files before sending. That usually solves it, but its a boring process.

By the way, I didn't take any offense to that. I completely undestand.

Hi,

I think the pdf files are corrupt or something, maybe you need to recover them. There is a tool called Advanced PDF Repair . I have used it to repair many corrupt PDF files successfully. You can have a try.

Hope this helps.

Do you use a download accelerator? There are a few that split a file into a few parts, this problem could have occured if one part did not download completely. If you do use a download accelerator then try disabling it.
