Conf: (P-PDF) What's Wrong with my PDF?, Msg: 164105

I am very new to writing pdfs so I'm probably doing something really stupid but I can't for the life of me find it!

I've created a simple pdf that should just contain a .jpg image but when I try to open the pdf it gives me an error saying 'An unrecognized token '' was found.'.

I've had a look at the pdf and the original .jpg in a hex text editor and the hex values are exactly the same so now I'm at the end of my knowledge!

If someone could help me fix my pdf or point me in the direction of tools/debuggers/documentation so I can fix it myself I'd be really grateful.
