Question about CIPHERLAB 8000 Series Handheld Mobile Computer

1 Answer

I have an 8000 series scanner and cradle. I got a new computer and plugged in the cradle. When I click on the IR_Read.exe icon to upload scanner data, it gives a "Can't configure IR reader" er

This setup has worked, with the use of the discs, on 5 or 6 other computers in the store. No one has changed settings on the scanners and the cradle is a barebones, no lights, no switches, no nothing model, so I think I just need the relevant files from the discs, which a coworker has misplaced.

SOURCE: i have a Cipherlab scanner 8001, when i connect it

OK,you indicated COM1 serial port is working on the a Cipher scanner 711.
Please check the communication setting on the Cipher scanner 711.
The most popular setting are
9600 bps 8 bits N for no parity check and 1 for check bit.
Short for as
9600 8 N 1
Check the setting on the Cipher scanner 711 communication speed and make set the Cipherlab scanner 8001 to the same rate.
MAKE SURE YOU RE-BOOT the Cipherlab scanner 8001 before re-try.

Please keep me up to date on the fix via email.

If cradle is without charge capability (suits CPT-8000), it get power from USB for internal logic and irda.
Cradles with charging capability ( two charging pin in cradle socket) need a powersupply to power both the charging of CTP-8001 and the internal logic/irda.

I have a symbol MC3090 which was working great for a year and today when i try to connect to DCHP it gives a cannot find IP address due to 'NIC card' or something to that effect the error comes and goes...

I had the same problem with a MC3070 and this is how I was able to solve it.

Find an MC3090 that is working and set it in the cradle attached to your PC.

Next open My Computer on the Scanner and go to the Platform folder.

In this folder you should see another folder called Fusion.

Open the Fusion folder then click on the the icon that says CBPCfg.

ColdBoot Cfg should pop up.

Click WLAN Settings and then click Save Current.

Save it to the device and then copy it to your desktop so it is easy to access when copying it to the device in question.

Once finished plug the broken scanner into the cradle and copy the registry file into the Application portion of your device.

Do a reboot with 1+9+power and it should work.

This is assuming the 3000 series scanners are all the same.

I have a Nikon Coolscann 8000 and a Mac computer. I only have the original software with the 8000 and it will not upload with the newer Mac operating systems. How do I get updated software for the 8000.

I have successfully downloaded NikonScan 4.2 on my MacPro running Snow Leopard (10.6.6) and my Nikon LS8000ED seems to work fine. I ran a test scan and it worked with no problem.

Nikon 4.0.2 isn't supported on 10.5

I suggest you look at VueScan which does work under 10.5 and 10.6 with your scanner, and they have a free download to test first

Installing WD 500 GB back-up hard disk

Western Digital packs software with their external drives. If you want to use their backup software you'll need to install it. If not just click on your 'computer' icon and if it shows up it has been installed and is ready for you to use.

I am trying to upload a game on my computer but the computer is not even regestering the fact that I've put a disc in. I then inserted a Cd and nothing happened. Not sure what to do?

Try manually looking at the CD by going to the "My Computer" icon, and double-clicking the CD. If you see any files in there called setup.exe, double-click and go. It should startup. If the computer tells you that it can't read the cd, or to insert a cd, then it's possibly it's not the right format for your computer. Either it's a dvd that you can't read, or maybe it's the mac version and you hace a PC, or vice-versa?
