Google Drive PDF Error

Hey guys,

I just uploaded a batch of pdf files from my laptop to my Google Drive via the desktop-to-drive sync function, and I've run into a problem with viewing the pdf files within the Google Docs interface.  For some reason, I can only  view certain pdf files in the Google Docs interface -- the rest of them give me a prompt that says that "No Preview Available -- it looks like other apps can open this file --  SlideRocket".  What confuses me is that it doesn't seem to be specific to certain files that I've uploaded, even though they all have the extension .pdf.   The problem persists on Chrome (my main browser) and IE (tested it on a whim).

Anyone have any insights on this?
