I have an EM500, and most of the time, I have trouble connecting it to my desktop, as it is running XP (Curse you Microsoft!). If I bought a MMC Reader/Writer for my desktop, is there a way that I would be able to install games, etc. to the card itself and then either copy them to the PPC, or just run them from the MMC?
Any information you have would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks and have a great day,

Re: 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.

you shouldnt need a device driver for your pda to work along side with Vista, as Vista has it's own Windows mobile device centre which should run as soon as you connect your pda to a usb port.
If it doesnt run, then open up windows mobile device centre in programmes and check the mobile device settings as to whether usb is set to connect to the centre.
Check the PC connection setting on your EM-500 for IrDA connection. You will also have to change the speed settings to match that on the PC.
You should have "IR activesynch" icon under start - programs -connections. Tap on this to connect through the IR port.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
