The password is an easy thing to get rid of. The problem is, a full factory restore is required. First do a hard reset and then restore the BE300 to factory defaults. The password will be reset.
Hard Reset: Press and hold the Power Button. At the same time, press the rest button on the left side of the device with the stylus (pen). You will see a blue scroll saying Initializing. Press and hold the OK button. Once the Initializing is done, the BE300 will go into the Safe Mode screen. Press OK and follow the instructions to the Restore Screen. From here, you can perform a Factory Restore but you need the original CD or a download of the Factory Restore BIN file.
For full BE-300 support, go to www.be300.org It's dedicated to the BE300 and everything you will need is there.
The BE300 uses PC Connect and will not work with Activesync. All the original software and upgrades are available at www.be300.org

BE-300-How do I open it to remove the touch screen?
As I remember it has some plastic bulges that fit into some indentations. Some gentle prying toward the bottom should show you some success.
To get the things that hold it together apart you need to press in on one part and lift up on the other, but don't remember which.
If you don't get it email me and I will go dig my old one out of the junk box and see which is which.
It, by the way has a good screen/touchscreen I think, the light circuit got busted on it and I can't get parts.

One thing, if you have Microsoft Activesync on your system pc connect won't work unless you shut off the activesyncs access to usb ports. Just a thought.
Synching Groupwise with a Cassiopeia BE300
Check out Intellisync 5.01. It works for us, but it definitely is not as simple as with a Palm.
There are a few quirks, but it does work. My biggest complaint was that you have to manually copy their "Windows CE Autorun Manager" to your startup folder or the Groupwise info. will not automatically be sync'd everytime you sync with ActiveSync.
In their defense though, I think most of the issues are because of ActiveSync.
I don't have the camera, but I would expect it will store those images in My Documents either in the Nand Dick area or (preferably) on the CF card. You would transfer them either through Copy and Paste with an Active Sync connection, or a PCConnect folder sync, or also with PCConnect using copy and paste within beXplore. Another method would be to remove your CF card and use a CF card reader connected to your PC, usually via USB. Or you could try a can opener ;-)
BE300 and PC Connect
If you have active sync installed it will stop pc sync from operating properly. If you don't have active sync on your system then go to the below forum and do a search for info on syncing. There are issues with pc sync that have been remedied with some updates.
