Hi I've got the AV700 DVR and Windows Media Player 10.

I've been all over the Microsoft Windows Media Player site and all over the Archos site but can't find the download that plugs in to Media Player to tell it it synchronises with an Archos 700

The software withe the Archos is for WMP9 so that will not install

Any help please?

When I had my old C750, I installed the qpe-camera_1.5.0-1_arm.ipk software, then plugged in the Sharp CE-AG06 camera into the CF slot and everything worked.

Now I have a C3100 (FigLabs translation). I've installed the software but when I plug in the camera I see a little 'CF' in the system tray, and when I run the software it tells me to insert the camera before starting the software - so I guess the software isnm't recognising the camera's inserted.

I've tried version qpe-camera_1.5.0-3_arm.ipk; I've tried installing to Program area and to SD card - no joy

Anyone know how to fix this?

Hi I just got my new SL-C3100.

The machine is great but the CDs (3) that came with it are all Japanese.

Does anyone know if the PC Software (Windows) is available in an English translation anywhere?

I've got C750 with Cacko Rom 1.22 and Bluemonkey card (the latest one) from Shirtpocket.

I'm also using a Sony Ericsson P910i

I'm horrendously non-technical, so this has been a long arduous task getting to the point I am at now....which is

I've set up a Bluetooth-PPP dial up Network and when I select 'Connect' the phone lights up and asks for a Passkey. I've been typing 0000 on the phone which, I believe, is its Passkey although maybe the phone wants the Zaurus Passkey?


What/Where is the Passkey for the Zaurus?
What do I need to complete the dial up process now that the Zaurus appears to be communicating with the phone?

I've modified:
hcid.conf - and set security to none (I don't use Bluetooth that much to be worried about security and I want to take any stumbling blocks out of making this process work:
# HCI daemon configuration file.

I modified my rfcomm.conf (although I keep typing "Sony Ericsson Bluetooth" in the comments and something keeps reverting it to "Generated by BT dial-up network applet"
rfcomm0 {
bind yes;
device 00:0E:07:97:FF:02;
channel 7;
comment "Generated by BT dial-up network applet.";
I wasn't able (on the Zaurus) to modify givepin, but I did so on the PC using Notepad and copying it back:
echo "PIN:0000"
I even changed a file 'PIN' to say '0000'

Believe me I've been through all the How-Tos and FAQ but quite a bit of it doesn't work, like
"* Restart Bluetooth on your Zaurus using
/etc/rc.d/init.d/bluetooth restart"

I discovered there is no file in that folder called 'bluetooth'

Also, how do you suspend/resume...I've installed the ipkgs, but I can't find any program icons for them?

Most frustrating

Once again, I'm a techno-neanderthal - be gentle with me as I love my Zaurus

I'm using a C750 with Cacko 1.22

After newly installing the Rom and installing all the KDE/Pim apps to SD card I started to synchronise, ie I didn't restore my KO/Pi and KA/Pi files.

I synch'ed the Sharp Calendar and Address Book with Outlook ok.

I synched KO/Pi with Sharp DTM ok. The Sharp Calendar entries were loaded happily into KO/Pi

I tried synching KA/Pi with Sharp DTM. All went well. It connected to the DTM files, did the analysis then asked if I would like to write back 486 entries. I clicked Write (or Execute) and it bombed out instantly.

After a couple of goes, I restored my KA/Pi address book back from the PC and deleted (emptied) the Sharp Address Book (using Delete All).

The same thing happened when I tried to sync.

Finally I synched the Sharp Address Book with Outlook so both the Sharp Address Book and KA/Pi were 'full'. When I tried to sync again DTM with KA/Pi, KA/Pi instantly 'disappeared'/aborted.
