Re: EM-500 Conection Problem
There have been issues with Em-500's USB adapter in the cradle. If your device is still within warranty period I suggest you contact Casio to upgrade the pcb in the cradle to solve your problems.
I have successfully connected EM-500 with upgraded cradle to XP & ActiveSynch 3.1.

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 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. :)
First of all ensure that the port selected on the EM-500 for PC connection is the same as your actusl connection - i.e. USB or serial.
There were some problems with the EM-500 cradle which would not allow communication to be established between the PDA & the PC/Laptop.
Contact Casio for rectification. It is done free of charge.
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.
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.
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.
Have you ever heard of wine? You can install wine for free and see if the program that allows you to interface the device to a PC will work. There also could be some linux programs that will allow you to connect your pocket PC to your PC.
There have been issues with the cradle PCB on the EM-500. Casio has redesigned the same added an IC & a few additional componentes.
I had similar problems & simply could not connect through the USB port. Worked flawlessly with the accessory serial cable (direct connection - no cradle ). This also was on an XP system.
See if you can wangle out a free replacement/fix for yout cradle from Casio.
