Had a C-1000 a year or so ago, and one reason I liked it so much was that it played videos so well -- dependably on the great screen. That machine bit the dust, and I recently purchased an SL-C3200. From the beginning it has seemed very much slower than the C-1000, but it did play a short mpeg or two -- then it just stopped working. Initially I could, after a long delay, get the video player to open, but I was unable to open any file to play. If I started by tapping on the file (on the C-1000 I could do it either way), it would not open that way either. Now when I tap the video player icon, I get the explosion icon indicating the program is opening, but it never does. It retains that icon indefinitely.

I thought at first I had too many movie files on there and the program was freezing for that reason (though that doesn't make a lot of sense, I know), so I deleted all but two movie files -- no change.

The movie icons indicate that the file type is recognized.

I have taken out the battery for a reset several times but that hasn't made any difference.

Trying to find out something so I know if I should return the product for repair.

Thanks, Michael McColl

I found out that a classroom which may be available has 'built in' digital projector. Just plug into your laptop I was told. Do I need any software in addition to what came on the zaurus? Would I need some kind of adapter for plugging in? thanks, Mike

I've spent about a week and a few hours trying to get connected to my home wifi using a LInksys CF card in Zaurus sl-c3000. The first day I had the card I stumbled into a configuration that worked (without having to enter any information), but even though I made no changes, the connection quit working after a day. Since then I have tried a hundred or more possible variations, and all have failed. Is there anyone who has used this card with a zaurus c300? Mike

I inserted the Wi-Fi card into C3000 a couple of days ago and was very pleased that without having to install any softare, and with very little to enter into settings, I was connected to the wi-fi in my house. This morning every attempt at connection fails, though I had made no changes in settings. In the last hour I have tried different things, but I can't even remember how I first set it up -- mostly what I did was skip screens without adding any information, just tapping on next again and again, and the end result was a connection. My laptop is getting the wi-fi all right, but the zaurus keeps failing. What does one try first? Thanks, MIke

I just got a Zaurs SL-C3000, and I am trying to install the software for the wi-fi care I already purchased. As directed, I connect the Zaurus to my laptop (which uses windows xp pro), and the cd-rom to laptop. However, the laptop is unable to make a sync connection with the zaurus, and the process starts there.

Since I am not going to by syncing with my laptop, just transferring files, I have set my zaurus to ''usb storage'' under PC connection. That has worked -- off and on -- and I have been able to put music and picture files on the zaurus, though I see many, many ''alert usb'' warning and error messages on the zaurus. I thought that changing this setting to PC connection would make the difference, but it did not.

I did not install the software that came with the zaurus -- I started to, but one of the first folders that appeared on my laptop screen brought the message ''windows cannot open this folder,'' so I decided not to mess with that unless necessary.

any suggestions? I read recent post with similar problem, but decided to write anyway because I am not experienced enough yet to know when problems are fundamentally similar or not.

This site has been recommended to me numerous times, so I am hoping for good things. Mike
