I would like to suggest since you are approaching to GUI enviroment you need to develop system build by visual basic using MSCOMM control by sending and receiving data between PDT3100 and PC.

Please try to visit for best VB tutorials about how to use MSCOM1 or hire/chat me if you need my further assistance.

Good luck,

Copy past very slow on my pen drive

Backup your data first and then format your pen drive using the HP formatting tool that can be downloaded on the link below:

before formatting choose NTFS file system, test shows that copying large file to or from a flash drive is faster when NTFS file system is used.

Hope this helps.

Hola dlujan. Usted está utilizando tft3000 en DOS, ¿correcto? Compruebe y asegúrese de que su PDT3100 está en el puerto COM1. Luego de verificación para asegurar que el programa DOS está tratando de recibir los datos de COM1. Si eso no funciona, entonces usted querrá tratar de volver a instalar su software en tanto su PDT3100 y su PC. Espero que esto ayude. Buena suerte!

MC9060-G stuck in IPL (initial program loader mode.

Windows Active Sync will not recognise a scanner in IPL mode. You need to install the Symbol Device Configuration Package that is applicable to your scanner/cradle. Once installed and configured you can use SDCP to restore the Hex files needed for basic operation. All the files and loader software can be found at
Good Luck

Error message

This is a software error message. This model of scanner actually holds a file set ..not just one file. it is likely you are using a program to download your inventory list or similar, and the files have been lost (usually by leaving hte battery out too long).

A SKU is another name for an item number.

It is quite unlikely this is a problem with the hardware itself.
