Question about Casio Cassiopeia EM-500 Pocket PC

Can't connect EM500 to my laptop computer

I don't know why I can't connect both my Casio EM-500 and IPAQ 3630 to my Fujitsu Laptop WHen I try to connect my Casio, a popup saying "the USB is not recognized" and for the case of IPAQ, I can just connect it to the laptop successfully for a few times. Sometimes a message from Microsoft Activesync saying "device not recognized" appears Even if I can connect the IPAQ successfully, it will get disconnected automatically in a few minutes' time. It's really annoying indeed. Hope you folks can help me figure it out.

Re: Can't connect EM500 to my laptop computer

It sounds like you are using two different types of USB connections, one for the iPAQ and the other for the Casio. What operating system is running on the laptop? How many USB ports are there? You might have to reboot when you want to change from one USB connector to the other. If you have two USB ports, always connecting a USB connect to the same port (iPAQ #1, Casio #2) might help the OS keep track of what is connected to it.

Cassiopia EM500 sync issue


First of all ensure that the port selected on the EM-500 for PC connection is the same as your actusl connection - i.e. USB or serial. There were some problems with the EM-500 cradle which would not allow communication to be established between the PDA & the PC/Laptop. Contact Casio for rectification. It is done free of charge.

Backing up contacts list


First thing you must religiously avoid is backup option in ActiveSynch. It takes forever. You have 2 options. Casio provides a built in card backup utility which is very efficient & reliable for full backup. There is a utility called TuBu which will allow you to selectively backup your data on the memory card. This however is not a free utility but very useful. You can download the trial version.

EM-500 memory question (new user)


You can use any brand whatsoever. If you are concerned about compatibility - a genuine problem with some manufacturers - you might consider buying from a retail outlet & test it out on the device itself. Casio uses either Toshiba or Hitachi cards so that would be your best bet.

Targus keyboard installation


The problem is most likely with the driver being for an older MIPS processor (like the one in the Casio E-100). Where did you obtain this keyboard. Targus did not really support the EM500 when the keyboard came out. Now, they don't at all. Email Targus www.targus.com or Stowaway www.thinkoutside.com for a new driver.

Connecting to a Linux machine


Have you ever heard of wine? You can install wine for free and see if the program that allows you to interface the device to a PC will work. There also could be some linux programs that will allow you to connect your pocket PC to your PC.

Programs to MMC?


Can you access the MMC from the desktop ? If yes - you could copy the installation cab files to the MMC card externally & then simply run the file on the MMC for the application to install. There have been some issues with the pcb design of the EM-500 cradle & Casio has updated the design with some aditional componets which should sort out your connectivity problems. Hope this helps.

Em500 Language


It is possible to change menus and basic controls to english - you have to install a windows add-on software (that changes your keyboard layout and local settings. Try http://www.penreader.com/company/productmap.html Their Language Extender product should do the job - however, it's not free.

EM500 replace touchscreen


They are in fact very easy to replace if you: 1. Are very careful not to damage the other parts 2. Can find a replacement Understand that the screen is actually two different components, first there is the digitizer which is the part that senses your touching the stylus part. It is a clear glass plate that sits in front of the color lcd unit (the other part). If only the glass is broken, then replacing the digitizer is a cinch. If I remember correctly, the digitizer on the EM-500 is the same as the digitizer as on an E-125. You'll have to check to be sure though. Anyway, it is not too hard, just needs steady, careful hands...and it helps to have a little experience taking these things apart...

Broken screen


Replacement of the digitizer, if the lcd is still intact. If that is damaged as well...sell it for parts, or get parts from another. The EM500 and E125 share the same lcd/digitizer.
