Well, I'm pretty much entirely confused, so here's two questions.
I've just bravely bought a C-1000 from PriceJapan, i.e. it's still in Japanese. I have two problems, only one of which really matters to me personally, but both of which could matter to people generally. If anyone can help I'll happily accept assistance via e-mail or 0439989938.
My preferred instructions on how to convert to Japanese into English are those of http://www.wbcd.org/computing/zaurus/part_12.html, since they explicitly mention the C-xx00 rather than just the C-xx0. But they ask me to "Open the terminal", which I have no idea how to do on a Japanese Zaurus. There's an icon shown on the page, which I can't find. I suspect I'm being blind.
A possible workaround here is to use the Conics conversion procedure.
I can't get the sync to work while it's in Japanese: it obviously finds something, and the Zaurus reacts to being found, but "An error occurred during data communication". That means I can't download onto the Zaurus SD card as required by http://www.wbcd.org/computing/zaurus/part_12.html. I'm using the downloadable 5500 sync software, since it's Anglophone. Both Zaurus and 5500 should be on default connection settings, is that not good enough?
I can work around this by using my digital camera as an SD card writer, but the problem might still qualify as worth answering for others' benefit.
Thanks for any assistance.
