128meg MMC for Casio Em-500

Hey guys- I ordered a 128 meg MMC card with my (Refurbed) Casio EM-500... I have personally fallen in love with the device, however, I can't get the 128 meg card to work. Specifically - it has no problem accessing the card and sending and recieving data.. it does, however, simply refuse to play any media files on the card... which is kinda annoying since I would like to use my PDA as a secondary MP3 player... Are there any firmware upgrades that will make the Em-500 more compatable with large MMC's? Second question- I have read online that upgrading an Em-500 to 32 meg is possible... how? are there any Em-500 owners groups/forums? thanks- -Scott

Re: 128meg MMC for Casio Em-500

Did you put your mp3 files in the my documents folder on the mmc? because if you place it anywhere else other than my documents the won't play (thanks microsoft). Also, the mp3 files might need conversion in order to actually play. It happend to me also, the files on the mmc would play on my siemens sl45 phone but on the em-500 not, until i use the sl45 connected to my computer to transfer files to the mmc than play with em-500.

Overclocking em-500


1) Back up your device since we will be removing both batteries from your PocketPC. 2)Remove all 5 screws (4 in the back and one underneath the rubbery grip sticker on the side). NOTE: Be very careful with the sticker on the side. I just pried it up with my finger nail to get it started, but the adhesive part split off from the rubbery grip. I then had to pry up the adhesive part from the side of my EM-500. I got them back together in the end, so no harm done - just something to look out for.

I can save successfully from my E-115 to my 128mb card. I have Flash Format installed, which indicates the following settings: Heads: 16; Cylinders: 948; Type: FAT16; Sector Size:512 Bytes; Cluster Size: 2kb. Are you using Flash Format?

Casio em-500 deleting mail programs!!!


I believe they are in unit's ROM, which is non-reprogrammable. Hence, you won't be able to delete anything from there. On the positive side, they don't occupy your main memory, so there's really no harm in letting them dwell in your PDA. :)

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.

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 Conection Problem


Upgrade Activesync and the PC's USB driver. Then you should be OK once you upgrade Activesync to V3.6 and then get the latest USB driver for your system. Good luck

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!

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.

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.
