If memory serves me correctly it means you've run out of space on the Edrive (the part for data storage).

Try downloading a smaller file ...perhaps an old one you've backed up. it is possible memory is still available for them ..

Let me know what happens when you try the smaller file ... I'll look up the error if that doesn't solve the problem. I would look it up now ...but I'm at home.

I am trying to run my pdt 3100 on my windows 7 operating system. I just bought a usb to serial DB25 Adapter and connected the docking station to the computer via usb. We bought this device about 10 years...

Hi Michael,
Sorry I could not login to Fixya yesterday,otherwise you should have received the reply mail early, but I just got busy due to some family problems.
Anyways, the product you have mentioned is PDT 3100 and you got to understand a few technical things which I would like to share with you now. First of all the PDT 3100 is 10 years old which is pretty older than the Operating System you are using which is windows 7 which is only 3 years old in market.What I am trying to say is any hardware device needs a driver software to run in a PC but the driver software which your device has was Last modified in 2004 so it is obvious it does not support windows 7.
Pleas check the detail here:
Also download the software from here:
Please read the instructions carefully and download the software and install it.Don't get disheartened, install the software and see what you get, but I feel technically it should not work. but it will work on any Windows XP, if you have another PC with windows Xp your device will work.
Thank you for purchasing my service, i will be more happy if I can assist you even better.Do revert back if you face any further issue with the same.
Thank you one again.

Symbol PDT 3100 with own made program

The terminals use DR Dos as operative system. Anything you want to download to them normally has to be built into a hex file and you will need a cradle, a null modem cable and winhex or the old dos command called sendhex.exe.

Is it a pdt 3100, 3140 or 3146?

I can send you the operative system files if the terminal is a 3140 or 3146 or you can do a search on the web for LWP and UPD.

You need a cradle, a null modem cable, a pc running dos and the command rcvhex.exe which you can download from the net.

If you can get all this together, get back to me and I will give you full instructions on the process.
