This tips will help you how to convert .pdf files to work on the Kindle device. Your first option is to mail the pdf to email@example.com and have Amazon convert it for you at a cost of .10 cents per file. Most of my friends want to read all their tech manuals and other pdf formated content without having to pay a bill so, they did a little research and found that Mobi offers a free program that you can use to create .prc files. One of the many supported import formats is .pdf. The other supported formats are .doc, .txt, and HTML. Problem solved. Simply use the Mobipocket Creator 4.2 Publisher Edition to import your pdf’s.
What about other formats such as .xls, .rtm, etc..? Well, if you can create a pdf then it can be moved to your Kindle using the method above. To do this on Windows, Linux and OSX have native support for pdf creation, many people use the free program PDFCreator. PDFCreator installs a printer on your Windows system that will create pdf’s from any program that has a print function. After installing PDFCreator simply, open up the file you wish to convert in whatever program you normally use to view the file and select the PDFCreator printer when you go to print the file.
It will convert the file to pdf and ask you where to save it. You can then take the resulting .pdf and import it into the Mobipocket Creator to create your .prc file. Finally, you need to transfer the .prc file to the documents folder on your kindle using a USB connection.
