Hi Fred! No, unfortunately in my iTunes there is only one file correlated to the working one. If I delete it and synch again, the correct one disappear from my iOS devices but nothing happens to the one with the issue...

I'm having a very similar issue since upgrading to iOS 6.1. I suddenly have duplicates of PDF files that are un-openable. The PDF only appears once in iTunes, but 5-12 times on the iPad. The odd thing is to the right of each duplicated item is a "pause" button when displayed on the iPad. Pressing it does nothing, nor can I open or delete the item. The only thing I see in common between PDF files is most of them are older PDFs I generated using an older version of Adobe. New PDF files are not duplicating themselves and work fine. The only "fix" seems to be to not sync those PDFs. I've gone so far as to do a complete restore of the iPad and re-snc everything, including the apps, from iTunes. No change other than the loss of a few hours of my time. I'm not seeing this issue on my iPhone5, but it is still on iOS 6.0.2

Jet787 and Troynelson-
The only other thing I can suggest is to reset (reboot) your iPad. Hold both the Home and Sleep buttons for several seconds until the Apple logo appears. Ignore the "Slide to power off" arrow. The iPad will restart after a couple of minutes. Resetting this way will not hurt anything, and sometimes clears up mysterious problems.

Fred - thanks for the suggestion but I'm well past that phase in troubleshooting. I've reset the iPad, restored it to its factory settings and reinstalled all apps, delete all Books from the device and re-synced from scratch. Nothing works - it appears to be a problem between iOS6.1 and PDFs.

I mentioned the reboot because someone else with your problem reported that it fixed it. They also had previously restored their iPad.
If their report was correct, a restore reloads data into the iPad's flash memory storage, but does not move a fresh copy of the operating system into RAM.
