    Hi Everyone,
    i got a Wikipedia from this site
    http://www.infodisiac.com/Wikipedia/DownloadFiles.html
    and TomeRaider

    I Copied the file
    WP_DE_PALM_TXT4.tr3.pdb
    to the sd card.

    When i oped TR, it shows me the file, but when i want to open it,
    it says
    Can not read file header.

    Everything else works well on the palm.
    What is the problem?
    Maybe the SD card isn't correct formatted. It is a SanDisk Ultra II from the box without changing anything.
    Please help

    You changed the extension, it sounds like. First try removing the .PDB .
    Where'd you copy everything (referring to folders on card)?

    Try downloading again, preferably with Firefox (which has a download manager) or get an IE download manager and try again. (all of this is optional; this is to rule out corruption during such a long download).

    Does the program have a desktop converter? (I don't use it, so I don't know.... :eek: ) Try using it (again?).

    It is possible the card isn't in the right format, but unlikely, since obviously your Palm recognizes the card. Back up your data and format it with the Palm (in the Card Info app) if you're unsure.

    And post back. ;)

    EDIT: Oops, didn't scroll down on the page. :eek: Try removing the .tr3 rom the file name (leaving just .pdb). Try shortening the name. (Yes, I know it only says that on PPCs, and the name probably has nothing to do with anything, but try anyways and see. :) )

    The file is on the card /palm/launcher/
    and the application is on the handheld.

    It shows the file only with a *.pdb ending

    Sadly

    According to the download page, Palm users have to "rename the extension to .pdb." In other words, it should be WP_DE_PALM_TXT4.pdb, not .tr3.pdb.
