Syncronizing the data from a Sharp OZ-650 to a new computer

I have been using a Sharp OZ-650 personal organizer for ten years and the tray and cord used to sync with a computer no longer works on the new usb computers. Is there a way to download the data from the organizer to Outlook contacts?

    I have a similar problem. I would like to get the data off the wizard into a Balckberry or any flat file.

Just get a USB-to-Serial adapter and use the same method you used to use. Here's the one I ordered and it works fine. It includes a CD for loading a driver which I loaded before plugging anything in.

A quick and dirty method of getting your data to near flat file format is to find a computer with the old RS-232 serial port and use a third party software called "Rupplynx" v 6.0 or 6.1 to download the data from the Wizard to the Rupplynx software on the PC. The backup/extracted files that you create with this software will be binary but the address book, memo etc data portion of the file will be ASCII text that is readable (beware, even the secret entries are readable so you will have to guard the computer that the files are on). A better but slower way is to copy and paste the uploaded and displayed data text in the Rupplynx 3rd party software to a Word document or plain *.txt file. I did this for the most important data since I also had about 10 years worth of memos and contacts.

I copied the whole subdirectory with the binary files from a windows XP computer that had an RS-232 port to a Windows vista computer and the program ran fine so that I could get the data into a compatible format such as Word or plain text file format. (via copy and paste) Rupplynx also has an export option to export to different file formats...

You should be able to transfer files using the Data Loader or the Downloader (the new software) via a dubbing cable. If this is not possible you have to go via PC using the Wizard Organizer.

Retrieve Password without losing data with Sharp Organizer


According to the YO-370 Operation Manual:

What To Do If You Forgot The Password -
When you have forgotten the passord for the SECRET function, you have to delete the password along with all secret data by selecting "DATA DELETION" from the Function menu. Once the password is deleted, a new password can be entered. Follow the procedure below to delete the password (and the secret data along with it).

1. Recall the Function menu (2nd, FUNCTION)
2. Select "3 DATA DELETION", and press v (3, v)
3. Select "3 SECRET DATA". (3)
The delete prompt "DELETE ? Y/N" appears
4. Press Y (To retain the data, press N)
When Y is pressed, both the password and the secret data are deleted, and the initial display for the previous mode in use will reappear on the display.

Hi, I has this same problem but I found in the user manual this instructions and works ok: 1. Press and hold the Start key.
2. While holding down the Start key, push the RESET button
on the bottom of the Organizer using a pen or some other
pointed object. The following message will appear.
"Do you really want to initialize the organizer's memory (this will delete all data)? Yes:[ENTER/No:[ESC]
3. Press to initialize the Organizer.
The message .Working... Please wait.. appears while the
Organizer proceeds with the initialization procedure.
The Welcome message then appears.
