Hi All,

I've just bought myself a Sharp C860. Apart from the transformer deciding to fry itself (even with a universal adapter), I'm fairly excited to start playing around with this and finally retire my old Palm M500.

Things that may be relevant
OS is Windows XP SP 1
PDA is Zaurus SL-C860
I'm in Australia

My skill level
I'm fluent in Linux. I'm fluent in Windows. As an administrator, developer and user.

Short Description of Problem
My problem is that I simply cannot get the USB drivers to work.
Windows always says that it is an "Unknown Device".
Doing an "Update Driver", and browsing to the original Japanese CD \usbdriver\network, windows says that it "could not find a better match".

Longer Description
- First thing I did whe I got this was install the C860 OpenZaurus from CF. No problems here.

- Plugged in the Zaurus to USB port. It came up as unknown device.

- Downloaded "qtopiadesktop-1.7.0.exe" and installed it.

- Downloaded 5500v310U.zip, and ran "Pcsoft\setup.exe". Let it go all the way through. I pulled it the C860 off the usbport when it asked me to. Rebooted.

- Plugged in PDA. It still comes up with Unknown Driver.

- Brought up hardware manager->usb->unknown driver and selected "Update Driver". Gave it location on the original japanese CD of "usbdriver\network". It didn't like it (Couldn't find a better match apparently). Also tried the usbdriver with the 5500v310U.zip file, but I suspect this is different?

- Totally uninstalled 5500v310U, qtopiadestop 1.7.0, and ran the slUninstall from the 5500v310U usbdriver folder a few times. Then only put back on 5500v310U, rebooted, and re-put back on the original japanese usbdriver. Same result.

I'm running out of ideas! I'm getting a CF Wireless card, but I still want to be able to sync over usb. I can't find any docs on the net for C760 or C860 that seem to address this problem.

i have the same problem on windows 98 SE.
tried all kinds of drivers,
complete uninstall, etc.
nothing. just "unknown device".
i can't and won't install 2nd os, since it's not my computer.

so i bought a SD card reader.
it's not that convinient to transfer the sd here and there (and probably not that healthy either), but it works.

i tried again:

since the last time i tried, i installed USB2 drivers (for my SD card reader), so *probably* they fixed up some of the win98-usb mess.

what i did today was:
erased all relevant registry entries: look for slz
erased all relevant files from all over the windows dir.
pointed the driver to the files (mentioned above by stubear)
temporarily neutralized the internal firewall (just in case)
and VOILA! at last.

FYI: i'm working with pscp (command line) and winSCP (gui) to transfer files, PuTTY as telnet+ssh client.
