I have PDF files that can't print.

When i try to print it would give me SAVE AS screen and name of the document with .pm extension.

If I try to save the file with .pdf file it would get corrupted.

I am using Adobe Reader X on Windows XP. Printer : Xerox Work-Center 5745.

Printer drivers are up-to-date and working fine, also I have the right printer selected for printing.

Do you know how to solve this?

    Have you tried to install Adobe Reader XI to see if perhaps the problem is solved in the current version?

    Have a look at the document properties, it may have no print permissions
