I finally got my system and SLC3000 unit to communicate so that I was successful in synching both my Outlook tasks and calendar. Oddly though, the unit is not able to communicate using TCP/IP, like it once did - it only communicates now when the setting is at I/O Default. Anyway, despite the successful sync of my tasks and calendar, it is not synching any of my contacts. I keep getting a PC link error message and asking me to unplug the cable, wait 30 seconds and replug it. I still get nothing. It communicates to sync the contacts, but once it starts writing to the Zaurus, that's when it fails. I looked at my contacts to see if there are any odd letters or numbers or symbols, and don't see any unless symbols like ( or & or the like are what is causing the failure. Does anyone know what I might need to do to my Outlook contacts in order to sync them? I have nearly 600 contacts, and refuse to type them all individually. Anyone's help is greatly appreciated.\

Curiously, is there a way of changing out the screensaver found on the 3000? As far as I can tell, the only one available and active is the one that shows the present date in black which flashes on a white background -- borrrrrring!!! It would be great if I could find other screensavers to use -- or if someone could guide me to a document or information where I could perhaps learn how to make one from say a photo or pic I have saved in the harddrive. I'm a complete novice though when it comes to using a Linux device. Anyone's help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.

The first issue is the missing drivers:
I installed the SLC 3000 drivers (the Japanese ones that came with the 3000 CD). Once done, I saw them in two different places in the device manager: "network adapters" and "other devices." The 3000 communicated with the computer, so I know the drivers were working properly. Not long afterward, I temporarily stopped using the unit, but just started using it again yesterday. I set it up the way I always do: set the unit to PC link (have the setting on TCP/IP); and confirmed my host computer has the same settings. I then plug in the sync cable. After about a minute, I received a PC llink error message on my 3000 screen because the communication failed. I was not able to sync. I re-checked the device manager -- only to find this time that both drivers are missing. How can this be if I didn't physically uninstall them? Hence, I cannot sync at all!
The second issue is problems syncing due to "incorrect value" message:
I have never had success even in the few times both my 3000 unit and the desktop computer were communicating, because I continuously get an error message that there is an "incorrect value in the syncing - that I need to fix it using the "check" button. The sync process stops at that point. (The last time this happened, I depressed the "check" button, but nothing happened. Does anyone out there know what the message "incorrect value" means? (Could it possibly mean there's a conflict because my Outlook tasks have recurring events and the calendar does not have a recurring event feature -- or is it something else? Either way, I have never had a successful sync at all, and would anyone's help, as I desperately need to sync my Outlook contacts, notes, tasks and calendar. I'm very frustrated and perplexed by it all. Thank you. Jenn blink.gif

I recently bought the Sharp Zaurus SLC3000 pda with the Linx OS. I bought it because I need a pda that has a built-in keyboard and added storage, both of which the SLC3000 has. I also need one that has a good tasks/calendar/contacts program that I can sync back and forth from my host pc. Unfortunately, the sync capability from my windows Outlook program (where my PIM data is stored on my host computer) to this device through Intelisync is terrible, to say the least.
Additionally, I am unfamiliar with the Linx OS and how it works; I have had success only using the windows ce/pocket pc environment. I thought I could convert easily, plus hoped the PIM program on the SLC3000 was more conducive to my needs of being able to sync my contacts, tasks and calendar info back and forth. Unfortunately, I am not able to do this -- and having a hard time generally with this unit. I was wondering if anyone out there knows if I can add the pocket pc OS to this unit -- maybe partitioning an area and then loading the pocket pc OS in the new partitioned space? If this can be done, does anyone know how this is done (or where I can go to find out) and where I can find the OS software for pocketpc? Any and all help is greatly welcomed and appreciated. I am very frustrated by it all.
