PDF Display and Retrieval

1) I am not able to retrieve some of the PDFs I have in the Walsh and Sadun collections using the Acq Station. They are up there, and display for users, but I can not retrieve them. Example: walsh_2007_s2_c1 This item has no icon, and can not be retrieved in Acq Station. How do I add an icon? It was added via the Web Add function. The “generate default icon option was checked when it was uploaded. These are the errors I get in Acq Station:



2) I am having some variability in my CDM displays that I don't understand.

The PDFs seem to display differently, at random. For example, I have two related files for a case at:


They are: walsh_2007_s2_c1 and Walsh_2007_s2_c1_pp Both are PDFs. One has no icon, but I would like one. (This is the file I can't retrieve.) It displays the title as the link in the icon column. It opens to a reasonable display, with the PDF embedded window. That is good.

The second file displays the PDF as the icon, which does not look good. I generated an icon in the Acq Station, but it does not display. In addition, when you click on that PDF icon, it automatically wants to download the PDF, rather than displaying it as it does with the item above. You have to know to cancel the download, then you can view the metadata, but there is no embedded PDF.

What is going on here? Am I missing some setting? I do not see a way to fix these.

Thanks for your help.
