What format are those books in? I haven't seen anything so far that I couldn't crack one way or another, and I'm far from the biggest geek here ...

Drop guylhem a line about zaurus and med school/practice. I expect he will prove a veritable fountain of useful info. Seriously, since we have someone here with real expertise in both areas, you should probably see what he has to say.

The format is pdb, i imagine they got drm protection, or something cause when i try to open it using opie reader, just gave me non sense characters, and when i cheke the encode, the books got unknow. So i dont know what to do.

Thanks for helping me i really apreciate

Palm database file. DRM'd. Hmm. If you have the Palm reader on your PC, is it possible you could convert these files *on your PC* to something Opie-Reader can handle? I've converted stuff from Microsoft Reader with convertlit, which outputs an HTML file, and then converted that to Mobipocket, which Opie-Reader handles well. Of course I'm a half-time semi-retired hospital worker with tonnes of free time, whereas you're a med student with no free time at all, right?

Maybe contacting guylhem is the right thing to do.

I recall seeing med students walking around with Franklin eBookmen, 4 or 5 years ago; when I got one, they ceased being cool. They had no DRM problem, though.
