Hi -
I just bought a refurbished SL-5600 and it did not come with a CD, just a note to download the software from myzaurus.com. What do I need? I downloaded a zip file that was supposed to be the software from the CD, but I can't seem to find the drivers to install when the install gets to the part where the zaurus is plugged in and turned on. At this point windows can't seem to find any drivers to install. Am I just being dumb and missing something or do I need to get another peice somewhere?

Thanks
Dangh

Hi,

See this forum thread.
http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=8618&hl=

Win XP is a pain in the arse - if you just try to install from CD it doesn't install the drivers properly.
You need to let it detect new hardware, find the drivers and set up the network and THEN install the software from CD.
Make sure the Z is set up to connect not just be storage if you have that option.

Its all in that link

I THINK the rom image should be the same as the latest one released for the SL-5500.

You can download it here: http://www.elsix.org/downloads/CD-v313.zip

You just need to install the USB drivers and the desktop software.

Install the Windows XP USB drivers first and I think it requires the installation of TWO separate instances of USB drivers so don't quit the adding new hardware dialog too soon. In fact, you might reboot and then try installing them again....if they are already installed it ask you if you would like to "uninstall" the drivers, cancel out of it then.

Then install the intellisync OR qtopia desktop software. Not both!

Hope this helps. biggrin.gif
