Hi Gerald,  Well lets see if I get all. 
windows home xp, up to date.
download through the web site using internet explorer, also up to date.
unpacking in the normal way using the unpack tool
tried to load the daisy format  to my bookport It  has version 2.108 I believe 
in any event it is the most current version.
As I said this has never happened with any other book from Book share before or 
since and I've down loaded a lot of them.  I don't what else to tell you, did I 
miss anything?  Tom

  Not sure what's happening, and I'd need more info to make an educated guess.  
How did you download the book, directly from the website, or did you try to go 
through something like K-1000?  Are you using the unpack tool to extract the 
files, then reading the HTML file, or are you trying to read it using something 
like K-1000?  If you're reading the HTML which is unpacked using the unpack 
tool, then what are you using to read that file, Internet Explorer?  Without 
this type of info, it's hard to say, but if I took a wild guess, I'd say you 
are looking at some of the HTML or XML language from the beginning of the file 
which happens to contain a message about an issue with page numbering.  If 
that's what it is, then the error probably isn't with the file or Bookshare, 
but the software you're suing to read the file.

  BTW, I just redownloaded the book, and my new copy is fine.

  I'd be glad to help you troubleshoot your problem, but I'll need more info 
including the following:

  the name of your operating system and its version number
  the names of any accessibility software and the versions you are running 
(i.e. JAWS, Magic, etc.)
  the name of the software which you are using to read the file and its version 
  which file you are attempting to read BKS, XML, HTML
  what software you used to unpack the book if applicable
