A: Both files are files of Across Lite puzzle format. But .pdb file is converted to format which is required to be installed to Palm memory only, whereas .pdb files can by synchronized to the memory card only (note: some older devices have no memory card support, therefore all bundled puzzles are in .pdb format to maximize compatibility).

Q: How to install puzzles to a memory card?
A: If you are using Palm Quick Install tool, just double-click on .puz files and next time you'll synchronize these files will go to your memory card. And if you are using some other way to install puzzle files, keep in mind two things: (1) Put .puz files in to a Crossword folder, and (2) only .puz files can go to that folder (which means .pdb files must to go to a main memory only).

Q: I've send you a question but got no answer, how come?
A: Normally we are trying to answer on questions as fast as we can (especially registration/HotSync change question have priority #1).
But some questions may require some development fixing from our side, this may take quite some time until we'll reply.
Also there is some other kind of e-mail we may never answer, for example, if question concerns how to work with your Palm, you better refer to manual or Palm technical support - we are selling our product for really low price and simply have no resource to do such kind of training, it's not even our responsibility.
