I just noticed this sale on EBay...

Granted you'd probably want to put in an offer instead of clicking Buy-It-Now (I mean $499 seems a tad steep, IMHO).

And personally, I ask for an actual picture of the item vs. the stock one being shown (they are listed as used after all).

(Disclaimer: I have no association with the seller... Always do your homework and check a every seller's feedback before buying purchasing anything.)

EDIT: Oops, I should have posted this in "Deals and Great Z Buys" forum... sorry about that.

General Discussion / When A Wifi Card Goes Bad?
« on: August 07, 2011, 11:34:55 am »
I am using a DLink WIFI card and it always worked great.

Lately I started using my Z again and when I put the card in it is recognized but it never connects, it just says "Network offline".

Sometimes I eject and re-insert the card and I get card unsupported (but ussually it recognizes it the first time,  this only happen of Eject/reinsert.

Oddly, on my C3200 it shows some activity in the WIFI monitor app, but while it shows the MAC address of the card for a while, the Mac Address will then suddenly disappear but the activity remains (signal strength/quality strong, but very little IO since it doesn't connect).  

Anyway, I am wondering if this indicates that the CF card is dying/dead or if there is some other tests I should try before giving up the ghost on this one?


So today board statistics say: "19 guests, 11 members, 1 anonymous members "

Yesterday (and every time I peak in) was about the same, but there are pretty much no new posts beyond the occasional one every month or so.

So I don't get it... I mean if there are more or less about 20 people on the board on a given day, and even half are guests, how come so few posts?

I realize that this is an older device and there are often about 50% guests browsing, but I have seen more activity on really vintage sites (like Tandy, Amiga, etc).

Anyone got an idea what's up?

Also, if you're here and reading this, post a reply just as a shout-out... at least passerbys will feel posting is worthwhile (since there is an audience).

Just my 2 cents.  

And yeah, I been away a long time as well, not blaming people for that, just lost as to why there seem to be users but no posts or conversations.

Cxx0 Hardware / Can C860 Support A 16gb Cf Card?
« on: September 29, 2008, 02:11:08 am »
Hello all,

Can C860 support a 16GB CF Card?

I want to buy one, but not sure if it will be too I don';t want to get stuck with a card I cannot use.

Also if it is it supported implicitly or would I need a special driver? (and if so where would I find it?)

Thanks in advance for the help.

Found some deals on Dane-Elec CF and SD cards (which are better than the more generic names in my opinion) with free shipping.

More info (and other deals) at

(seems to be mostly deals lately)

For Sale / Wanted / For Sale C-3000 In Excellent Condition Plus Xtras
« on: July 22, 2006, 12:54:07 pm »
Hello all,

I have a C-3000 in excellent condition for sale.  I bought it a couple of years ago and updated to the latest Cacko for the C-3000, but barely used it except to watch a couple of movies,etc.

I still have my C-860 and I find that the C-860 really fills my needs well enough that I have not had a need for the power and internal storage of the C-3000.

It has literally been used about 10 to 20 times at most.  I know people tend to "round down" on thier usage numbers, but in this casse, it is very close to the mark (personally I think it is closer to 10 times than 20, but whatever).

The screen is perfect (had protector on it from day one), and I have all original pakaging, manuals, gudes, flyers and CDs.  As well as Power and USB cables and stylus.

The extra goodies I have are:

1) An Extra Sharp brand BL08 Battery.  This is identical in size to the BL-09 the C-3000 takes...the only difference is that (I think) the BL09 is black and rated at 1800maH and the BL08 is white and rated at 1700Mah.  So the difference is negligable.  Both the original and extra batteries are slightly used, but both hold a solid charge.  They've only been charged a few times each.

2) A USB Host Cable - This is the I-River Host cable.  About 4 inches long with small male on one end (to Zaurus) and larger female USB on the other end.

3) A (small) USB  2.0 Hub, Brand New.  It  has the AC adaptor if you want to power it, though powering it is not necessary unless you are using power hungry devices off the USB.

4) 3 sets of inexpensive (but decent sound quality) earbud head phones. These are brand new and unused.

5) A slightly used 512MB SD card.

6) Pack of 5 new screen protectors.  Plus the Zaurus will already have one on it when it arrives.

I can also add in some other items if you are interested, such as a new "rubberized" roll-up keyboard, New 2GB CF card, Sandisk Cruzer Micro USB drives (I have 256MB. 512MB, and 2GB versions, most are new, and the used ones are only slightly used), a New 4GB "Gigabank" USB drive (it internally has a microdrive (but not the knid that can be extracted to work in the Zaurus CF slot).   I also have extra USB host cables and extra (new) Zaurus-brand BL08 batteries.

The price is $399 for the C-3000 and the 6 items listed above.  The other additional items can be negotiated...the more you buy the better price I can give on the other items.

Pictures will be taken and posted or emailed once we settle on which items you are looking to purchase.  I realize that any offer would be tentative until pictures are posted and condition approved.  I just want to do the photography in one sitting in case you want some of the other items.

Shipping cost would be actual UPS ground cost.  Insurance and Tracking would be included in shipping quote.  My guess is less than $15 for almost anywhere in the lower 48 states.  International shipping would be via USPS, and again would be actual.  (General guess here is about $25 for 4-9 day delivery, but it could be a bit more or less).  Either way, you will be able to confirm actual shipping via the UPS or USPS websites.

Payments would have to be Paypal for anyone international, and Paypal or U.S Postal Money Order for anyone in the states. (Sorry no checks and no other types of money orders will be accepted)

Everything is guaranteed not to be DOA (dead on arrival).  I am certain you will be very pleased with the condition of everything as I take very good care of my stuff and I barely used any of this stuff anyway.

Please PM me if interested.

I want to buy a Socket Bluetooth Rev F card and use it with my C-3000, which is running the ltest Cacko ROM for the C-3000 (I think it is called Cacko 123BetaX)  

Anyway, will this BT card work with the C-3000 and Cacko ROm?  It's hard to find a definitive list of ROMs/BT cards and what issues (if any...lIke suspend/resume) exists in a particular combination.

Please help !

Amazon 8GB for $154 (After $40 Rebate) FREE SHIPPING

$40 Rebate (Limit 1 per household)

This sounds like a great addition to Zaurus (5500-C3100) or even as a REPLACEMENT for INTERNAL DRIVE on C3000 and C3100  Although I have not done this or even used an 8GB so I cannot confirm compatibilty

At least it comes from a great reseller like Amazon.

Please post if anyone has any compatibility reports for Zaurus.
