Default BB 8520 - Trying to use Mobipocket Reader

Please Login to Remove!

Hi there,
I recently bought a BB 8520 cheap online. It is originally from Mexico, but is working fine on prepay on Vodafone NZ network.

I downloaded Mobipocket Reader to my PC and read on this site that if you just plug in the USB cable it should install on my BB automatically. Has not done so. However I did try to transfer a pdf document using the cable and it does show up on my phone, but my BB does not give me the option to 'open/read' file, just to move, copy, delete etc.

Any ideas where I went wrong? I also tried it on another PC same issue.
Sorry for the long spiel, thanks

P.S If this is answered in another post sorry for the laziness I gave up scrolling after page 6.

Back when I had a symbian based phone using mobipocket reader required and an install of mobipocket app on the pc to convert pdf to mobipocket version. Once this is done you drop the newly converterd pdf to the phone now open via the mobi app on the phone to read.
