    I have the manual and this does not work because Sharp Inc said that Windows XP is not compatable with The Sharp OZ 750 ----
    The OZ 750 is compatable to TRANSFER with
    my Windows 98 which I have in an OLD Micron Laptop that does not have a USB PORT - It has a PCMCIA Card - A Serial Port - and a Parallell Port... I want a SAFE simple way to Transfer the Data out of the Sharp 750 Because it is OLD and starting to have Problems with some of the KEYS not working and I want to save the Sharp DATA BEFORE it BREAKS DOWN and I lose everyting in it...
    > IF you need more details or facts - let me know...

    Hi Benimur,
    I am getting a better handle on this now: I have the OZ Software, Docking Module, and the attached COM1 Cable/Plug. ( I thought I needed more special Transfer Cables and detailed info on the Transfer).
    >>> Thank you Very Much for this info. and Also the "3" EXCELLENT WEB-SITE REPORTS.
    >>> I will download the Sharp OZ Software
    and see if i can get a Transfer.
    >>> I will get back to you on the results...

Hello pw999

Yes its a old device and doesn't have software for xp.

here is the manual for your device
You need a pdf reader to view it.
Chapter 9 - page 52

Exchanging Information with a Personal
Using included Organizer Link software (Day-Timer Organizer
SHARP Edition) and cable (Docking Module), you can
exchange data with a personal computer. This makes it
possible, for example, to use the unit when outside your home
or office, then later transfer the data you have entered on the
Organizer to your desktop computer.

To setup the Organizer for use with the Organizer Link:
1. Make sure the unit is turned off.
2. Plug the Docking Module into the jack on the Organizer
and into the PC’s serial port (e.g. COM1). See the “Quick
Start Guide” for details.

3. Turn on the Organizer, press to activate the PC SYNC
(PC LINK) mode.
Your Organizer is now ready to transfer data. Consult the Day-
Timer Organizer SHARP Edition HELP file regarding
subsequent transfer procedures.
Press at any time to exit the PC-Link mode. If you leave the
Organizer in PC Link mode, more power is consumed from
the batteries than usual, and the auto power off function does
not work.
To conserve battery power, always press to leave the PC
Link mode as soon as you have finished transferring data.

If this solution was any help at all please rate it as helpfull or fixya.
And if you need anything else let me know, you can ask me 24/7 by clicking
on the ask me button, I will ansver in most cases within 24hours.
Thanks and good luck!

How do i transfer a file from windows xp to a sharp wizard oz 730

You need the cable that came with the wizard. I think it is a serial cable. Then you need the software that came o a disk with the device. Does not matter, what port you use, serial or USB you always first need to install the software before you can connect it to the computer and work with it. Sometimes you still can fine the old software on the site of the producer of the device. (Sharp this time)

You should be able to transfer files using the Data Loader or the Downloader (the new software) via a dubbing cable. If this is not possible you have to go via PC using the Wizard Organizer.

Syncronizing the data from a Sharp OZ-650 to a new computer

A quick and dirty method of getting your data to near flat file format is to find a computer with the old RS-232 serial port and use a third party software called "Rupplynx" v 6.0 or 6.1 to download the data from the Wizard to the Rupplynx software on the PC. The backup/extracted files that you create with this software will be binary but the address book, memo etc data portion of the file will be ASCII text that is readable (beware, even the secret entries are readable so you will have to guard the computer that the files are on). A better but slower way is to copy and paste the uploaded and displayed data text in the Rupplynx 3rd party software to a Word document or plain *.txt file. I did this for the most important data since I also had about 10 years worth of memos and contacts.

I copied the whole subdirectory with the binary files from a windows XP computer that had an RS-232 port to a Windows vista computer and the program ran fine so that I could get the data into a compatible format such as Word or plain text file format. (via copy and paste) Rupplynx also has an export option to export to different file formats...

Migrating software and data to new computer

Assume that your Visor is your data respository. So you should make sure that you have an up-to-date synchronization from the NT PC. Now get the XP compatible software for your Visor from the palmOne website and install it on the XP box. I assume that you will be synching via USB this time - this is the default setup when you install the software. Hopefully you still have the USB cradle that came with the Visor. You can still use serial sync with XP but you should try to take advantage of the speed of USB on the new PC. Download for XP & Visors: Once the software is installed, sync with the new computer and all your data should be copied from the Visor to your PC in the first synchronization. By the way, Outlook shouild be installed on the new computer before you install the Visor software; otherwise the installer will not offfer to install the PocketMirror conduits.
