LOL Yeah but that's just too much work. Be glad I plugged it in and turned it on.

C'mon, you mean you guys already forgot the shorter method to solve the 1899 problem? Just rename the \Backup folder in \Nand Disk to something else and then soft reset (and then rename it back and soft reset after deleting the newly created \Backup folder). Oh, wait, is that BeShell 0.9b8? As I recall, that was the one OE that ignored the \Backup folder during reboot. (The shortcut works in 0.9b5 and 0.9b7.) But 0.9b8 seems to retain the date after reset once corrected, at least based on my experience. (BTW, I've even had a few revert to 1850 after the battery ran down. )

I have at least half a dozen BE-300 cradles. (Several of the ones I've picked up came in their original boxes.) But the issue seems to be on the device end as I get the same result with all the cradles: the BE-500 and that one BE-300 won't connect, but all the other BE-300s will.

I haven't seen any backup.dat versions of EpodXP nor of XPod/eXpod (other than the Japanese version of eXpod 6.1 that I just mentioned above). They're all backup.bin versions. Anyway, those who know me here know I like to be able to sync PIM data onto my CE devices, which is impossible without the cradle.

My BE is running BeShell, can't recall which version. I just turned it on after years of sitting on my shelf. It's now back on the shelf where it will likely stay for another several years.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS! I am an old-school beshell and expod user. LOVE that I am getting to use Beshell again on both of my BE-300 devices.

I should've posted this a while ago, but I snared a second BE-500 cheap on Yahoo! Japan Auctions and got it here with the help of the same "anonymous" friend , and it connects and syncs fine. It's the black version, which is not the same as the BE-300 as the black cover is glossy. Pretty cool too. It took a lot of file clearing (and running the Casio PIMs from the Storage Card), but I was able to squeeze Pocket On-Schedule onto it and get it working without any extra steps. (The BE-500 has about 600 KB less space than the BE-300.)

Now, if I can just track down the cobalt blue version . . .

wow mutantcheese your handle is etched into my mind and instantly recognized it...I begged for a handheld back in 2001 and was rewarded with a be300. i remember spending my days on the expod forums. trying sq, and being pissed that i couldn't find a pirated version of kcmenu. But very happy that i found a working version of simcity 2000...also Jetslalom! spent a crazy amount of time playing jetslalom.

thanks to you all. those were some of the best days of my early teenage years. im really sad to find that all the software i had accumulated is gone. its really crazy to look back and remember how the web once was.

I got some "data" cache that might be of interest to some people.

PM me if you are interested...
P.S. depends if you can read awstats logs.

I was poking around the Web looking into portable charging options for my electric vehicle, not doing anything BE-300-related, when I stumbled onto what the creator of EpodXP (CButters) is doing lately:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMb3lp0IfG6EXVngmYg77ng

It's the same guy - his real name (Cameron Butterfield) is given in both the old EpodXP pages and his current Web site:

http://www.exoid.com/

Wonder if he's still been in touch with our friends MutantCheese and renrut.

Good find, CE Geek!

I will look at it once I get my audio up.
