C1000/3x00 Hardware / C3200 Wont Stay On
« on: March 23, 2007, 09:13:14 am »
Hope someone can help me fix my C3200.

When I switch my Zaurus on it only stays on for 2 seconds, screen goes off then back on for a second then stays off.

I have swapped the battery over with my C760 & the problem stays with the C3200.

Works correctly when on mains power.

Any suggestions?

Can anyone tell me which files can be removed from C3200, for example can I remove the following from the internal disk?

Linux Issues / How Do You Create A Shortcut

Can anyone tell me how to create a shortcut in the file explorer, on similar lines to Microsoft where you can copy a file or folder then paste a shortcut elsewhere?


Software / Open Pdf Documents
« on: June 01, 2006, 06:26:02 am »
Does anyone know how to get file explorer to open PDF documents in qpdf, as it tries to open them into Opera but this fails.

I assume it has something to do with mime types or the desktop files.

I am using Cacko ROM.

Software / Tuxpaint
« on: May 19, 2006, 08:42:28 am »
Has anyone got TuxPaint working on the C1000/3000/3100/3200 works on my C760 but not on my C3200, fails at the point it displays the startup screen on my C760.

Perhaps more importantly how do I get it working just in case I let any of my grandchildren near my C3200.


C1000/3x00 General discussions / Usb Host Problems With C3200
« on: April 28, 2006, 08:58:37 am »
Hope someone can help me with a few problems I am having with my C3200, I know the basics as I have had a C760 for many years.

I have tried using various USB devices such as card reader, USB memory stick, self powered NTFS drives & my Canon IXUS camera. Each item is displayed in the Devices tab under System info so the Z can see what ever I attach, so I assume they must be mounted, but I am unable to access them. Example device tab contents:-

Product: USB OHCI Root Hub
Class: HUB
ID: 0000/0000
Driver: hub

And the SD card as

Product: CS8819A2
Class: Mass Storage
ID: 04cf/8819
Driver usb-storage

Has anyone any idea what I have to do, yes I did load Meanie’s NTFS driver, I did not load the auto mounter as it appears to be for the C3000 only

I would like to throw in a couple or other C3200 issues.

The C3200 comes with the Japanese version of Photo-Storage, I tried loading the English version which resulted in the loss of the squares for the Japanese characters but no English ones on the initial screen.

If I load Stubear’s modified Sharp/Cacko hybrid will all my USB & PhotoStoarge problems go away?

I would like to try X/QT now that I have lots of disk space & 2 free card slots, should I stick to the stock Sharp ROM or the hybrid. Can I remove the CF card with X/QT on it if I am not using X/QT, such as when I am transferring pictures from my camera.

Has anyone tried this it appears to allow you to connect just about any kind of disk drive via the USB host facility.

It even has its own 110-240v mains power suppy.

Says it can be used with Hard-disk, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, CD-RW, COMBO device, DVD-RW.

I have the cable but I am waiting for delivery of my C3200.

« on: April 24, 2006, 04:50:59 am »
Has anyone tried the Swelldisk at they claim that it works on the Zaurus as shown below. Not cheap but a lot cheaper than buying a larger CF or SD card.

Dear Customer,

Thank you for insterested in our product. For your device, we recommend the SwellDisk 300% Edition. It will triple your memory card capacity.
Yes! We already have SwellDisk For Linux Mobile, it have tested on Sharp Zaurus, Motorola Phone (e680/e680i) and many other devices.
If you want to purchase SwellDisk 300% Edition now, we offer you only $44.99 (from $49.99).

My original question asked if it could increase internal flash capacity which they ignored.


Cxx0 Hardware / Stylus Won't Stay In Silo
« on: April 21, 2006, 10:00:19 am »
Having difficulties getting the stylus to stay in the silo on my C760 & its getting worse.

Anyone have any idea how to improve the silo grip so I don't keep replacing the stylus.

Is there a similar problem with newer models as I have a C3200 on order.


Windows Issues / New Drivers? C760 To C3200
« on: March 31, 2006, 08:57:48 am »
I have a C760 & about to purchase a C3200 & want to know if I need to update my drivers or Zaurus software.

I use Windows 2000 with Zaurus Manager 3.1 & Intellisync 2.00E

Windows Issues / C760 Usb Driver Problem
« on: December 13, 2004, 09:21:08 am »
I usually connect my C760 to the same USB port each time I synchronise, just tried it on the other USB port & Windows 2000 did not recognise it.

Tried the same thing on my Windows 2000 portable & the same thing.

Can anyone use any USB port and if so are you using Sharp or Cacko ROM & which version of Windows.
