Question about Sharp Wizard OZ-650PC
I have been using a Sharp OZ-650 personal organizer for ten years and the tray and cord used to sync with a computer no longer works on the new usb computers. Is there a way to download the data from the organizer to Outlook contacts?
Just get a USB-to-Serial adapter and use the same method you used to use. Here's the one I ordered and it works fine. It includes a CD for loading a driver which I loaded before plugging anything in.

A quick and dirty method of getting your data to near flat file format is to find a computer with the old RS-232 serial port and use a third party software called "Rupplynx" v 6.0 or 6.1 to download the data from the Wizard to the Rupplynx software on the PC. The backup/extracted files that you create with this software will be binary but the address book, memo etc data portion of the file will be ASCII text that is readable (beware, even the secret entries are readable so you will have to guard the computer that the files are on). A better but slower way is to copy and paste the uploaded and displayed data text in the Rupplynx 3rd party software to a Word document or plain *.txt file. I did this for the most important data since I also had about 10 years worth of memos and contacts.
I copied the whole subdirectory with the binary files from a windows XP computer that had an RS-232 port to a Windows vista computer and the program ran fine so that I could get the data into a compatible format such as Word or plain text file format. (via copy and paste) Rupplynx also has an export option to export to different file formats...
