I purchased a used C-Pen 600C scanner pen that picks up text quite accurately but I can't seem to get it to connect with my PC for either uploading or scanning directly. It came with a serial cable, still in the plastic package and never used, which is all I have.
I connected the cable as instructed, turned the pen on first and then clicked on "connect" and it won't recognize the pen, other than seeing it as an infrared device (I indicated during the install I was using a cable connection). I even tinkered with the system registry in Windows XP to make sure it was finding the com port. I can tell that something's happening because it's frozen up the pen a few times. But they just won't talk to one another properly.

Will C-Pen 600C work with Windows 7 and Windows Vista?
software for C-Pen 600C (C-Win 3.24) is not compatible with these operating systems.
however you can install http://download.anoto.com/ctech/C-Win_3_24.exe and use software with "Microsoft XP Mode".
Well a computer user
mostly afraid and suffers from virus attacks. Virus is the unwanted program
that destroys your data and some times also damage the computer. One of the most
common ways of virus attacks is by connecting USB to your computer. So today I will tell
you some tips which can avoid or minimise the chances of virus attacks. Always keep in mind
the following points before connecting a pen drive to your computer. 1. Always use a good
antivirus in your system. 2. Never open the pen
drive directly. 3. before opening the
pen drive, scan the pen drives for finding the possible viruses in the pen
drive. To scan the pen drive go to My
Computer->Right Click on the Pen drive->Click on Scan option(Remember Scan
option will only be there if there is any antivirus installed on your system) 4. if any virus found
and the antivirus is not able to delete the virus, just safely remove the pen
drive from your computer. 5. If no virus is
found, do not double click on the pen drive to open. Always open the pen drive by
Right clicking on the pen drive and then clicking the explore i.e.: My
Computer->Right click on pen drive->Click on Explore 6. Always beware of
copying the unwanted files on your computer. Just copy the file which you want.
Never do a select all, copy all thing. Just copy the item you wanted, and paste
into your computer. While pasting the
data you should never paste it on C drive (Drive that contains your operating
system). Always copy data in a separate drive then C drive. So these are some
small steps which can be very useful to avoid virus attacks... Regards, polysandy
Most virus scanners will allow you to scan your peripheral drives. Just put the pen drive into a usb port.. wait for the computer to recognize it then open up your virus scanner and scan the drive letter associated with your pen drive.
Using the pen is quite simple. You extract it from its storage space and use it as a mouse, left clicking it as you would a mouse. By pressing the tip of the pen on an area on desktop or on an application window and maintaining the pressure for a short while, you activate the context menus (the equivalent of a right click.)
On the Windows task bar (for Windows XP) there is a small icon near the start button that shows a pen pointing outside: that is the input panel. Click the icon with a mouse or your pen, and an input area opens. In that area you write with the pen (writing Pad) or enter letters and symbols one at a time (Character Pad) or use a virtual keyboard.
Under the red X that closes the input panel there is a small gear. C;ick the gear with the pen or a mouse to configure the settings.
Your pen may have an eraser at the rear end and/OR on the side. It is used to erase characters or whole sentences.
To actually record (write) what you enter with the pen you must have a text-editing application open and running. Whenever you approach the pen to the screen near a text-area (search area of IE or other compatible applications) a small icon appears to be clicked to enter text. This happens is you select UNDOCK in the input panel configuration.
This should get you started with the pen. Try these steps, and if you have any other questions post them as comments to this thread and it will be my pleasure to answer them.
Are you pressing down firmly enough? If not, sounds like the digitizer may have a problem... The digitizer is the layer in front of the lcd, it's job is to pick up the signal from your pen and send it to the motherboard. The motherboard should have two connections to the screen, one to the lcd itself and another to the digitizer. If you remove the screws on the bottom of the tablet you can take off the keyboard and see if both are connected right.
I found a solution before asking help from c-pen support.
1. Uninstall C-Pen software
2. Remove C Technologies entries from registry. They appear in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software 3. Reinstall C-Pen software (remove the pen from USB before reinstalling)
