Re: Website has moved

Actually the forum also moved Kinda.... The new It's just that even though I haven't paid any bill since the provider of tankraider.com changed owners they still haven't shut down the site, they just removed access to the Control panel. I thought they'd shut down the site end of march, but oh well I...

Re: Sharp PC-3000

Establishing RS232-connection with Sharp PC-3000 Summarizing the issue: the Sharp PC-3000/3100 can not read ordinary PCMCIA memory cards without a special driver. This driver is available but is not included by Sharp on the machine so it has to be transferred to the Sharp via an RS232 connection. B...

Re: Help with Highscreen A5-PC

I uploaded the drivers pack for the Bicom 260i. The Highscreen ist just an OEM version of the Bicom. And please use the new website.

You may wanna put MS-DOS 5 or 6 on that HDD and Windows 3.1.


Here's the drivers and tools:

Re: Sharp PC-3000

You were for sure a power user of the Sharp back in the days. I got my first Laptop in 1998 - A small Toshiba satellite. I'm pretty sure it was stolen as the seller was that kind of dodgy drug dealer type and someone teared off the sticker with the serial number. But back then for 800 Deutschmarks i...

Re: Sharp PC-3000

Hmmm, I never thought the battery in the SRAM cards would make such a difference, but now that you explain it it kinda sounds logical. I wonder if the poqet used the same or at least very similar PCMCIA controller since it had the same problem. Actually I have pretty much the same invoice from DIP -...

Re: Sharp PC-3000

Confusing, since Sven posted the output from his linux machine which clearly claimed the working card "SDCFB-16-485" as 5.0 Volts. But yeah maybe it's a Linux bug or so? No idea how linux reads out the voltage anyways. Could also be a flag that is just configured in a wrong way? But let's just say I...

Added Minix (Linux) download for the Sharp PC-3100

Well if you miss Linux while using the Sharp PC-3100 then here it is. I finally added it to the extras page (on bottom).

Re: Sharp PC-3000

Well according to Sven Uttcke I had the impression that only 5 Volt cards work... I just leave this link where he tried some cards: https://kogs-www.informatik.uni-hamburg.de/~utcke/Private/Palmtop/sharp-pc3100.html I think formatting the card directly in the PC-3000 should work fine if the card is ...
