Question about Eten Glofiish X500 GPS Pocket PC

1 Answer

CD no good

Now I have discovered that I am unable to install anything from the CD that came with the X500 (which is in Spanish). I can read enough Spanish to know that it won't install anything....
Is there anyplace on the internet where I can download an English version of the CD?

I am continuing to have the same problems. With charger on and attempt to charge, green light on continually. Try to reset while holding down on button, green light changes to flashing red. Disconnect from charger, hold on button, flashing red light only. Try to reset while holding on button...red light flashes faster.

    Hi, I have tried again and again to get help from Eten and Glofiish at the sites you mentioned. They won't let me into the site without joining, and when I have filled in all the information they ask for I get the message ""Cannot locate proxy which supporte Remote Scripting. Was RSEnable Remote Scripting method invoked?"
    And when I click that is shuts down...

    Very frustrating!

    Brilliant. I did get in, was able to register with Eten on Internet Express...Guess Eten doesn't like Firefox! I was able to download the manual in English...but because the language on the X500 is Spanish...all the downloads for the software are in Spanish. Any idea how I can get them to give them to me in English?

Hi Kutemba,

Thanks for asking me to be your tech buddy.

May I pls inform you that my knowledge and experience with mobile phones and PDAs would be at best described as "for personal consumption only".

In any case, it would seem that the company/website that deals with the X500 is www.etencorp.com. Their support/download page is here. There is however another company/website http://glofiish.com/ that also deals with your unit. heir support/download page is here. Available on that page are manuals, software, Windows Mobile Upgrades (Versions 5 & 6). You need to joij as a member. Additionally, the updates require a licensed copy of WM5.

The good news is all are in English. There is also a ROM update which may be needed if the unit has firmware issues as others in your original post have posted.

Another that I would like to suggest (if you haven't tried yet) is to leave the battery off the unit at least overnight.
For the moment, try to download all related files, manuals, updates, firmware, ROM and whatever you feel would be relevant to your X500. Please create a temporary folder in your PC to house all the downloaded files.

Good luck.

    I understand. Will try to do some more research for you.

    In the meantime as earlier posted, try removing the battery for an extended period of time.

    Cheers.

    Hi again,

    A short update, apparently both sites have not yet finished implementing all of their pages. Most are just mock-ups of to "follow soon" intelligent contents.

    Looking at alternative sources of information.

    Will post update soon as available.

    Keep your hopes up.

    Cheers.

    and hello once again,

    When you try the sites, is your browser Firefox? If yes can you pls try using Internet Explorer?

    Louie Role Feb 17, 2008

    Hi,

    another update, pls make sure that the battery cover is securely lock in place.

    I understand. This will be the tricky part since changing from Spanish to English would mean totally deleting/erasing everything inside the X500 and you would have to start fresh.

    From what I gather, though not really that technical, it do requires a bit of knowledge on flashing/upgrading, bootloaders and stuff like that.

    I am still in the process of compiling a procedural listing on how it is done.

Need drivers for ge x500 camera


On newer operating system I think this one gets recognized but if it doesn't for you you may have to run the setup cd you should have got with the camera.
That will install any files or drivers needed as well as the image editing software.

The main page for it is here:
http://www.general-imaging.com/us/Digital-Camera.aspx?id=1962

And the support page is here (where all the file downloads are):
http://www.general-imaging.com/us/supportDetail.aspx?id=1962

Just go there and click on what you want along the left side of the screen. Make sure it is showing the x500.

If my links won't work then you need to go to
http://www.general-imaging.com

Click on our cameras then the picture of your camera. For support stuff just click on the support link and chose the picture again. That will get you to the same pages as the first links. The software should detect when the camera is plugged into the usb. I do have one canon that refuses the play nice and won't do this so I just use a card reader to transfer the pictures right off of the cards.On the same page is contact information for support don't be afraid to call them and ask them anything.

Can you change the langauge of a computer, my mate bought a computer at a boot fair and it is in spanish, ( the language) is there a way you can change it to english


I can help you change your language, but I need to know the Operating System installed on your computer. (i.e. windows xp, windows vista, windows 7, etc...).

It would be easier if you can somehow read spanish, let me know whether you can read spanish or not. If you are not, i have to include some illustrations and icons (graphics).

Awaiting.

Can not re-install XP. Get "Unmountable boot volume" error.


Usually it's because you're missing the SATA drivers.

Did you slipstream those in too?

Attempt to turn on computer, no OS install windows


Marginal hard drive, hard drive cable, or hard drive controller (on motherboard).

Other suspect parts may be the CD ROM drive you're trying to run the OS install from. It may also be flaky, causing you to think you're loading the OS, but not really and not reporting errors until you discover the OS is not completely installed.

First thing to do is pull the HDD and cable out, reseat firmly and try again. May as well do the same for the CD/DVD drive.

Necesito instalar un scaner, pero perdi el disco de instalaci?n


Okay, I read Spanish well enough to understand your problem, but not well enough to send you an answer in Spanish....

You can download the driver from Visioneer's website, or from driverscollection.com. Once the driver is installed, Windows should have a software program that should act as a scanner manager.

You can also purchase the CD from the Visioneer website, but you will need the serial number of the scanner to do so. There is no charge for the replacement CD, but there is a shipping charge of under $10.

I am installing my CD setup program for HP designjet 100 to my new Dell Inspiron 530. The result is in spanish not in english. What is wrong?


Either look through the Spanish results and see if you can find a word that looks like language ( the Spanish word is very close to the English word ) or uninstall the program and try again paying close attention not to skip through anything. It may be in a not-so-obvious place. I hope this is a help. If not, I'm very sorry!
