Re: Harddisk

Theoretically it is possible. You would have to get/rig up a cf to ide connector. Pinouts are available on the net. Rig your hard disk in an enclosure such that your HDD from the PC is well buffered against shocks during your car ride. Personally though I feel you are asking for trouble with an extremely high probability of head crash & rendering your HDD totally unusable.

When the lifedrive dies duo harddisk, there are


You have two options one is of course a replacement drive but the other is replacing the little hard drive with a flash disk. The flash drive is nothing more than a 4gb compact flash memory card that happens to use the same connector as the Hitachi hard drive. Of the two I'd go flash myself.

The flash disk is faster and uses far less power so your battery life can increase by quite a bit. I think it is something like 10% of the power. Next to the display this is the single biggest power item. I've heard of the useful battery life increasing anywhere from 3x to about 6x after doing this. You can get the drive or flash from several places online. These are the same CF cards as used in many cameras. Most also offer the installation service.

Here is a link to one place but do a few searches and compare prices etc. Just search for lifedrive, flash, drive or lifedrive hard drive replacement and you should get quite a few.

When charger is plugged, amber light blinks once and then nothing? E125 not working at all!


The Casio PDAs will quit charging very quickly if the battery is very, very discharged. If you continue to remove and re-insert the charger into the PDA's power socket, the recharging cycle will last longer and longer until finally the stupid thing will fully recharge its battery.

I have two Casio PDA's and three batteries that were recovered after a bit of tedious struggle to force the charging cycle to complete.

Can the e800 USB-host feed a 500mA Harddisk?


You may need to look up the hard drive on the manufacturers web site. They should list the spec's, including power requirements. In theory, sounds good though - anything to eliminate a power brick is good. Do you already have a hard drive you're thinking of using? If so, please post the drive model, manufacturer, etc - I can look it up at work in our files.

Need help on connecting E-125


I doubt it... I mean it is unlikely there is any incompatibility there. Go to your device manager and make sure that your USB ports are installed and configured properly for your USB cradel.

E-125 dark screen


Bingo! You hit the problem on the head. If you can still see an image, albeit extremely faint, and the Casio is still working, i.e. playing an mp3 file or whatever, then you definitely have a problem with the backlight. More times than not, this is either a daughterboard problem or a connection problem (rarely have I seen an actual bulb failure though it can happen). One of the more common causes is the tiny ribbon cable connector on the daughterboard. You might try to disassemble it, clean the contacts of the ribbon and reassemble the device. I've also heard of people squeezing in the side of the case to temporarily effect repairs...this is normally more ominous.

Universal Remote software?


You cannot find remote software for E-125 simply because the range of the IR emitters on E125 is simply too short. If you are willing to di some surgery on the device - switch it for a higher range one from say E-100 - the earlier versions software should work on E-125 also.

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!

CASIO E-125 has no backlight


Pretty common problem, and is normally one of three possibilities: 1. Ribbon cable that connects the backlight daughterboard to the motherboard connector has gone bad, or contacts oxidized. 2. Daughterboard itself has gone bad... 3. Power problem or cpu problem not activating upon powerup. Not as likely. 4.The fluorescent tube itself may has blown. The cure: carefully disassemble your 125, clean the ribbon contacts on both ends of the tiny ribbon cable, be careful, it is very fragile. If that doesn't work, find someone who has a E125 and swap out ribbon cables and see that works, that will at least tell you if the cable is bad or not. If that doesn't work, swap out daughterboards. If that doesn't work, sell it for parts on EBay and buy a new one, because anything else will probably be too expensive.

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.
