Question about Psion Series 5
Can somebody very kindly help me. This morning my machine worked. After a while the screen went dead. I replaced the main and back-up batteries and tried a soft reset twice but it wouldn't work.

This device should come with it's own software that you can install on your computer. Softwares like these are capable of backing up and restoring files. After installing, you'll need to back-up the information that you need to transfer from the old psion to the new one. You'll have to do this one step at a time.
1. install old device's software
2. connect old psion and back up all data/information
3. install new device's (Psion Revo Plus replacement) software if a different one is provided.
4 connect the replacement device and then restore all of the data/information from your computer.
This is usually as easy as pie and has steps so simple that even an average computer user can follow.
hope this helps. :)

MacConnect was written for MacOS 8 and was discontinued in 2002. The last version it supported was MacOS 9.
For MacOSX, use the Java Psion Link or JPL. This is platform independent and works with any java enabled OS, which is pretty much everything nowadays.

Only suggestion here is to try a cold reset. Make sure you have an up-to-date backup. Take all the batteries out and leave for a couple of hours. Re-install batteries and check the Psion. If all looks good, do a restore. If things look bad again, your system was corrupted so reset again but do not do a restore. You will then have to trial-and-error reloading parts of the backup.
I would suggest re-installing any third party software from scratch.

The formatting is supposed to be identical on Psion and PC but in practice they are not. You should never try to repair a CF card on a PC for instance as it messes with the filesystem making it unusable on the Psion. Try to format the card on the Psion if you can, or if possible find or borrow a camera which takes CF cards and use that to format the card - that should do the trick.
