View PDFs on your PSP, iPod and Mobile

Categories Hacks and tips and waiters, Tech it easy

Play games, listen to music, watch movies and sail through the Internet. These are just some of the features a PlayStation Portable an iPod and many other devices offer you. But what about that day when you desperately want to view that PDF on your device and all it can do is the things mentioned above?

Though PDF viewing is not that difficult on an iPod touch (you can get legit apps from the App store) but it surely is when it comes to other iPod’s and PSP. With such vibrant and near perfect screens of the iPod’s and PSP’s reading books on the go is a pleasure which you just can’t miss. But you *are* missing it. That is the reason you are reading this post, isn’t it?

What I will tell in this post is How to view a PDF on an iPod or a PSP without Jailbreaking /Hacking/ Modding the device. The only thing that your device requires is that it should be able to view images, no matter what format. But if you already have a PSP or an iPod that is Jailbroke/Hacked/Modded then it’s no use reading this post. Viewing PDF’s on that kind of device is a piece of cake.

The basic idea: What we will do is pretty simple yet ingenious. We will use an application eBook to Images. See? The idea is pretty fantastic!

How to: It’s pretty simple, just download the software to your PC. Open it. It currently supports the following devices.

APPLE:

iPod Classic

iPod Nano 3G

iPod touch (All three versions, 1G, 2G, 3G)

iPhone (All four versions, 1G, 2G, 3G and 3GS)

Creative:

Zen

Zen V

Zen V Plus

Zen Vision W

Zen Vision:M

Sony:

PSP {All three versions, 1000 (Fat), 2000(Slim).3000(Slim light and bright}

Microsoft:

Zune

Sandisk:

Sansa e200 series

Sansa c200 series

Sansa Connect

Sansa View

Besides these devices the images can of course be used anywhere on any other device too because of course at the end of the day these are images (you do need to mind the resolution).  You get the option of the output images being in JPEG, PNG and BMP. It also has a custom mode in which you can manually specify the resolution, quality of images (quality of images are directly proportional to the size of the images) ,font size, background colour, font colour and you can even opt for a custom background image though that will surely up the size of each image.

Conversion is usually very fast. I converted The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, output was around 1700 pages. Quite a large number but still feasible.

After converting, all you have to do is copy these images to the device and view them!

PS: Wondering from where exactly are you supposed to download the software? Just wait for a few days, I’ll upload the software or just Google the name and you’ll find it. The reason I’m not uploading it now is because I currently have a 200MB limited connection out of which I’ve already used 1GB 😉

Feedback as always is quite compulsory especially from fellow Bloggers. 😛

UPDATE: I’m not sure but this trick might even work on the APPLE iPad which is releasing on 3rd April.

UPDATE: Download eBook to Images from here.

  1. You could certainly see your enthusiasm in the paintings you write. The world hopes for more passionate writers such as you who aren’t afraid to say how they believe. All the time follow your heart.

    1. BookR for PSP means that it has been modded/hacked which of course I didn't want to do.

      The site from where I downloaded that software, is not hosting it anymore for some reason. That is why I am planning to upload it,that is after I get an unlimited plan.

  2. One suggestion for psp's, especially if its Pandora-able. There are many homebrew apps out there which can easily serve as a PDF reader. But still, your method is ingenious, and will work on many more devices than just PSP.

    1. Being Pandora-able is ancient.It doesn't work on newer PSP's.But I did mention for older ones with older firmwares;"Viewing PDF’s on that kind of device is a piece of cake." This was meant for Pandora-able or moddable PSP's.By piece of cake I was mentioning Homebrew apps only.

  54. Kudos,for this post.
    It is one of the only posts i've actually found *useful*,and not just a simple matter of entertainment.And the method is pretty ingenious too,because all the above devices,and innumerable MORE,can view images. It is indeed a waste of such near perfect screens to not be able to read ebooks in that crisp,sharp fonts.

    I would have generally preferred a proper .PDF reader,but since that is not possible on un-modded devices mentioned above,this method is almost equally great.
    Earlier,what i'd do is convert the file to html or txt,but that used to remove almost all the formattings,and i am too lazy to re-do the formatting *again*.

    Excellent post.

    About the *Compulsory* feedback,This comment has not been made by any sort of force. This is my own view on this post.

    A post request. Please try and find a method for signing unsigned .sis/.sisx files for S60 v5,because there are a lot of cool applications which are unsigned for my nokia 5230 and Parthiv's 5800.
