I'm running Tiff-3.7.3 on a Windows 2000 Pro SP4 machine.

When I use tiff2pdf to convert a certain Tiff file, it appears to work OK, but when I open the pdf with Acrobat, I get the following error:

"Insufficient data for an image."

I get the same error whether it is opened with Acrobat Reader 5.0, 7.0 or the 'full blown version' of 5.0.

This is the command I'm using:

tiff2pdf.exe -o Nbm001.pdf Nbm001.tif

Here's the output I get from from tiffinfo:

TIFF Directory at offset 0x8

    Subfile Type: (0 = 0x0)

   Image Width: 12000 Image Length: 16800
   Resolution: 400, 400 pixels/inch

    Photometric Interpretation: min-is-white

    Samples/Pixel: 1

   Rows/Strip: 16800

    Planar Configuration: single image plane

Here's the output I get from from tiffdump:

The Tiff file is 'sized' to print on Arch E1 (30 in. x 42 in.) paper. It is from a blueprint (a Mechanical drawing).

Does anyone know why I'm getting this error and how I can correct it?

Thanks for any help!
