I have a 5600, which has no modifications. Just an out of the box Z.

I used to use my Z often, transfering and deleting files from the SD card all the time, then I got a laptop and the Z somewhat took a back seat. In the interim, something happened that makes me incapable of deleting files from the SD card. The card is not locked, and I'm not someone that tinkers with terminal or anything like that..I play Q word game a lot, and take some meeting notes.

I have no idea what I could have done to cause this...does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks in advance...

I recently tried to use my Z to record a memo after a meeting, something which I've done before...but not all that often.

when I open "voice recorder" and tap the red dot, it tells me "Unable to open recording file".

Any ideas why?

How does one replace the crapy dictionary that comes with Q- Word game on the 5600?

The damn thing pulls words out of ether like "amyl" and "agog", but doesn't recognize "stone". I would like to replace the file, if at all possible...

Has anyone experienced problems syncing between Outlook 2003 and their Z's?

I've never had a problem before...but overnight my corporate IT group updated Outlook to 2003, and now sync doesn't work with my SL-5600. They won't fix the problem, because it's a personal PDA and not the companies. mad.gif

Is there an update to the syncing software, perhaps?

Just in case the info comes into play somehow...I have made no ROM changes (came with 1.32), and I'm using the sync software provided by Sharp. I'm simply not computer literate enough to tinker around with the stuff I read about up here smile.gif

thanks in advance!

I am about as newbie as newbie gets....so this has got to be the correct forum to post in.

I have just purchased a 5600, it is my very first handheld. Also, I have zero Linux experience. I have been looking around here at ZUG, answering questions for myself and playing with my Z.

I've been able to answer most questions as I've come to them, except one...how does one exit the GUI and get to the "terminal"?

All I want to do (for now) is install a new screen saver (the Trek one), and the how-to-doc gives some cryptic stuff that looks like something from my old DOS 3.0 PC. I'm assuming "terminal" is what an old timer like me calls a "command prompt", but I can't find the confounded thing.

Please help a newbie out.....

Thanks in advance
