Transfering files from MS to SD ram to Palm Tungsten E2

I would like to transfer files from MS to sd ram and then place the sd ram in my Palm Tungsten E2.

I have a USB thumbdrive that takes sd ram.  I can see the Palm and Launch directory on the memory when it is in the thumbdrive in the windows machine.  I believe that I need some software to be able to place the files on the memory stick so that when I place it in the palm the palm can read it.

Use Windows Explorer and copy the files to the memory stick. Once you've done that, you should be able to put the card in the Palm and the files will be read. After that, if they are Microsoft Office files, you'll want to use the Documents to Go software that should have come on the CD with the Palm to synchronize the files when you Hotsync.

I have used Windows Explorer to copy a pdf file to the SD ram.  The tree structure on the sd is:
DCIM - (folder)
Palm - (folder)
Palm/Launcher (folder/subfolder
Volume.nam

I have placed the pdf file in the various folders.  The palm recognizes the SD ram and tells me the amount of available ram, but I can not see the file.  I have even tried opening Adobe Reader for the Palm.

Thank-you in advance

OK. Here's the thing.  The Adobe Reader for Palm consists of two parts. The desktop conduit preps the document to be readable on the Palm. The reader resides on the Palm and opens the documents after they've been processed by the desktop conduit and synched.

Can you copy the .PDF to the Quick Install tool that is most likely on your desktop, and synch it onto the Palm, then try to read it again?

Thank-you.  The pda can only read certain file formats.  That was what I was missing.  I thought it made a difference where I put the files.
