I have tried moving some .pdf files from a Windows 2000 machine to a Linux laptop using a usb memory stick. I put the usb stick in the Windows machine and copy the files from the Windows machine onto the stick. I then remove the stick in the proper way and insert the usb stick in my Linux machine. But now the files can not be read by my normally well functioning pdf-reader, neither from the stick nor when saved onto the hard drive of the Linux machine. I am dual booting my Linux machine, and have tried using the same procedure for the transfer with both machines runing Windows (Win 2000 on the source and Win XP on the destination). When viewed on the original machine, the pdf files display without any problems and pdf files already on the second machie display without problems using the reader.
Any suggestions ?
