Try storing your files online instead. you can use some free online storage like or Plus you can share it and access your files elsewhere where internet is available. This is more convenient for me. plus they are secure as well. Please dont forget to rate me. Thanks a lot.
I also had external hard drive for awhile but I dont like bringing a lot of things when I travel so online storage works best for me.

I cannot print PDF files on my Lexmark X4650. Word docs print fine, but Adobe files will not print and I cannot convert them to word either.

Make sure your Adobe application is updated.
Try to update your printer driver as well. Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark X4650 Printer Driver on your computer. Select your operating system > download and execute the file.
Once the update is complete, try to print a PDF file again to verify that the problem is fixed.

My files are created in adobe pagemaker now I want them to convert in jpg or pdf format how?

1. Save the Pagemaker document. If you don't do this before proceeding, a pop-up box will remind you.

2. Go to File>Export>Adobe PDF. A dialogue box of PDF options will come up.

3. Determine what you want to use the PDF for. If you are exporting for a specific print job, the printer will give you Distiller settings. Otherwise, in Job Name, just choose the settings that most closely meet your requirements: High Quality Print for a printout, Smallest File Size for a document that will be viewed online.

4. Click "Export." An "Export PDF As" dialogue box will pop up. Choose the folder in which you wish to save the PDF, and name the file. Check the "View PDF" box, so the PDF will open after it has been created.

5. Watch the dialogue box. It should show that Distiller is creating the file. When finished, the PDF document will open.

Good Luck!

How can i convert my pagemaker file into pdf file ? any software 4 it ?

You just need some pdf converter software like nemopdf to help you do that. Once nemopdf is installed, it will creat a pdf printer driver in your computer. All you need to do is select the "print" command from pagemaker and then you would get the converted file.

Hope that helps. ;)

Hi, I cannot print a pdf file or that kind of attachment. Only Word can print. Adobe error shows up and want to shut down the program for protection. I never had the problem before. Just started.

Is it a file that you created in pdf format, or is it one that you have had emailed or attempting to open from another source? Some pdf files have protection put on them by the file originator to avoid the file being changed/printed. Here are some tips to try to get them to print for you.
  1. Open your computer's Internet browser.

  2. 2

    Type in the browser's URL box to access the PDF restriction converter "A-PDF Restrictions Remover."

  3. 3

    Press the "Enter" or "Return" key. Your Internet browser will access the site's PDF converter file. A dialog box will appear on your screen--"Opening a-pdf-rr.exe."

  4. 4

    Click "Open" or "Run" to download and set up the program directly. Click "Save" or "Save As" to save the program's setup file on your computer for running later--use this option if you using a slow connection like dial-up. The program will download and set up on your computer if you selected the "Open" or "Run" option.

    If saving the file to your computer, navigate to the directory where you want to save the file to. Select the "Desktop" if you have a hard time locating downloaded files on your system.

    You do not have to access the A-PDF Restrictions Remover website again once the file starts downloading or saving to your computer.

  5. 5

    Double click on the "a-pdf-rr.exe" icon to open the program, if you selected the "Save" or "Save As" option.

  6. 6

    Click "Run" when prompted with the "Open File -- Security Warning."

  7. 7

    Click "Next." Click on the circle by the wording "I accept the agreement." Click "Next."

  8. 8

    Select the directory where you want to save the "A-PDF Restrictions Remover" file. The default is your "C:\Program Files\A-PDF Restrictions Remover" folder. Click "Next."

  9. 9

    Click "Next," "Install" and then "Finish." A-PDF Restrictions Remover will start automatically.

  10. 10

    Navigate to the directory where the protected PDF file is located.

  11. 11

    Right-click on the PDF file name. Select "Remove Restrict & Save As."

  12. 12

    Select a location to save the converted PDF file to. Click "Save." If you want to change the PDF file's name, enter a new name in the box next to the wording "File name." The protected PDF is now converted to a unprotected one.

  13. 13

    Double-click on the converted file to open it.

  14. 14

    Select "File," "Print" and then "OK" to print the unprotected, converted PDF file.

  15. Printing a Protected PDF By Taking a "Screen Shot"
  16. 1

    Open the protected PDF file2

  17. Press the "Alt" and "PrtScrn" keys together. The PrtScrn key is located on the upper right-hand side of your keyboard, if using a desktop computer keyboard. If using a laptop, the PrtScrn key is located above the "F10" function key.

  18. 3

    Open your computer's word processing program by clicking on the program's icon on your system's "Desktop" or from the "All Programs" menu.

  19. 4

    Press "CTRL" and "V" keys together to paste the screenshot into a blank document.

    If using a Mac, click "Edit," "Paste" from the main toolbar at the top of your word processing program.

  20. 5

    Click "File," "Print" and then "OK" to print the PDF screenshot. If the protected PDF file contains more than one page, press the "PgDn" key and repeat steps 2 through 5.
