Casio not reading CF card after using it in Desktop PC

Tried program flashformat and storage tools. Neither can seem to detect the CF card (IO data 128MEG). This card operated flawlessly in the casio 125 for a good time then I pluged it into the CF slot on my soyo based board (Has a multiple card reader/writer) and I was able to take the files off the card but when I returned the card to the 125 ,it no longer recognized there was a card in it!!!! I returned it to the Home PC reader and again was able to access but PPC can no longer do so. Tried formating to FAT and again to FAT 32 (Doubted it would work but tried anyways). No program or format seems to make the 125 happy enough to read trhe card again. Anyone have or know of a solution?

Re: Casio not reading CF card after using it in Desktop...

Try this: Format from your desktop as FAt16. Run scandisk make sure all is OK. Then transfer a simple txt file onto the card. Now try this card on your Casio and see if this works. If not, try this on another Windows CE PDA. There are two possibilitities. 1: something is wrong with your Casio's CF slot. 2: something is wrong with the CF card or driver. In Either case, having access to another Windows CE device will help isolate the problem.

Re: Casio not reading CF card after using it in Desktop...

Try another CF card/accessory in the slot to determine if the CF socket on the E-125 is not damaged. Also run scandisk on it while plugged into the card reader on yopur PC. There have been issues with 128 mb CF cards manufactured by SanDisk (who are OEM suppiers to several other brand names also ) randomly malfunctioning. Inspect the pins in the CF slot on the PDA to see if any of the pins has been bent/corroded. Hope this helps.

E115 main memory problem


The memory problem can be fixed easily. It is not only you. It is a common problem with some pocket pc. Instructions according to Casio Customer Service: You will have to back up all of the data. Then remove the backup battery and main battery for ten minutes. Restore all of your files and you should be back in business. Also, to prevent this from happening again and to keep program memory high, perform a soft reset at least once daily. This will almost certainly fix your problem.

MMC/SD Cards


In most cases they are interchangeable except for the security feature which you don't need for storage on your EM-500. SD cards are faster in read write department as also they cost more due to security featurtes built in. In Casio cameras Casio recommends SD cards but I have been using MMC cards very successfully.

EM-500 music transfer


Seeing that you are using a EM500 with only 16mb of RAM, you might want to get a SD/MMC Card. With that being said, let's do this, shall we? Connect your PPC to your desktop using ActiveSync, then press on the TAB "Explore" then "My Pocket PC". You are interest in the "My Documents" folder, that is where you will place your .WMA, MP3, OGG files. Just copy the music file from your desktop that you want on your PPC, and then paste it to the "My Documents" folder of your PPC. Now if you have a storage card (MMC/SD), you will have to create a folder on the storage card and name it to "My Documents". So you will then have 2 My Documents folders, one on storage card, and 1 on the PPC. If you want the Music file on the storage card to save space on your PPC, then do the following. Connect the PPC to your desktop using activesync, then press on the TAB "Explore" then "My Pocket PC". You then need to click on the "Storage Card" folder, there you will see your "My Documents" folder you created. Just copy the music file from your desktop that you want on your PPC, then paste it to that folder. To speed things up, you can also use a MMC/SD Reader. you can then copy and paste directly on the memory card, without going thru ActiveSync. Goodluck, and have fun!

E-125 Getting attachments for emails


What can & cannot be downloaded will be determined by your setup in ActiveSynch on the desktop. When connected right click on the Inbox on ActiveSynch main screen & select settings. Check mark the "Include File Attachments". If you are downloading the jpg files uncheck the "Limit Attachment size to" so complete attachments will be downloaded. On the PDA start the inbox, tap on Tools - Options - Storage. You should get the option of saving the attachments on storage card if one is available to save on main memory usage. But this might not be an option if you use a CF wireless ethernet card for connecting & Synching. If it does show up you will have to uncheck this option to save the attachments in main memory. Hope this helps.

E125 Speaker Click


Solution to CF Recorder Click Noise Problem! Hi, ever since I got my Netbook, I was annoyed about the click noise, most Netbook users hear, when recording straight to a Compact Flash Disk. Problem To test if you are suffering from this problem, make the following test: 1. Make sure you have a CF disk in D: (or E: ) 2. Start the Recorder application. 3. Select File/New File and enter any name using the drive the CF is in (D or E) 4. Make a recording, for about 10 seconds, preferably in a quiet room without saying anything. 5. Playback the recording. You will hear a clicking sound often about once every second (varies according to CF-Card used)! 6. If you hear no clicking sound and the recording sounds clean, you have no problem! Solution I have just spent a couple of days at Photokina (the world's largest photographic trade fair currently on in Cologne, Germany) visiting CF-Manufacturers with my Netbook to get to the bottom of the problem. Basically, the problem is caused by the buffer in the CF-Controller emptying faster than it is being supplied with data. This affects a lot of CF card manufacturers and the only solution (apart from recording on C) is to use a CF card with an Hitachi Controller as that is the only controller which takes account of this problem and handles the data stream correctly. I tested a number of CF-Cards at the show (only Dane-Elec refused to let me test their card) and this is the result of my hard work: CF-Cards that Work Correctly: SimpleTech (all SimpleTech CF-Cards use the Hitachi Controller) Casio (Hitachi Controller) Hitachi (of course) DataFab (the sample I tested worked, they did not know which controller) Extrememory (Some work, some do not) Note: Large CF-Cards can still have problems. Even the SimpleTech 512MB CF-Card produced the click noise whereas the 256MB card was OK! CF-Cards with Click Problem: Sandisk (incl. Ultra) Toshiba (all 3 controllers tested) Dane-Elec (not tested, but uses Toshiba controller) Those were the cards I tested. Perhaps the members of this forum can post their findings on other makes not mentioned above. I personally made the mistake of buying a Toshiba card and had no end of problems. I must say that the people at Toshiba were very helpful and let me test a range of their cards. I will now be returning my Toshiba card and ordering a CF-Card from Simpletech as the cards I tested worked well. I have no connection with any of these card manufacturers! However, I do recommend that before buying a CF card for the Netbook, from any manufacturer, you should always do the above test, first! Remember, in most cases I could only test 1 card per manufacturer so each card could differ. Test before you buy is very important in this case! I hope this helps!
