Thanks, C:Amie for helping me get back in.

Ok, I recently picked up a sweet HP 1000CX locally for super cheap (think a couple of McDonald's cheeseburgers....). The HP 1000CX is a "cut down" version of the HP 200LX. By cut down, I mean no built in applications except for Dos 5.0.

It's in great shape, and I'm hoping to get some PIM use out of it. I'll be using a CF card with a PCMCIA CF adapter (256 formatted with a couple of drives + storage for apps that I can move on and off those drives through my desktop computer).

I need a little help. Upon boot up, it says;

"Volum in drive C has no label
Directory of C:
File not found"

Will a hard reset (i.e. resetting it from ROM) alleviate this issue? And secondly, is there any way to get the HP 200LX built in DOS programs over on the HP 1000CX?

I'm also curious if anyone could recommend a simple launcher for the handheld? I've seen a few, 3D Menu seems like a decent choice. Any thoughts?

Sorry for the numerous posts after one another, I'm unable to edit my original post. Does anyone know where I could get a cable for the HP? I've seen them on eBay going for 100+ dollars. I've heard a calculator from HP used the same cable?

Hi!
You can build this cable yourself: https://hermocom.com/hplx/view-all-hp-palmtop-articles/63-serplug.ht...


Bye

I found an old link (now dead, even with the waybackmachine) that would allow me to seemingly download the HP PIM applications for DOS. So I'm asking again if anyone knows a place I can find these?

Hi, after reading a few sites, I found that you can get some sharewares / freewares here:

http://www.dasoft.com/
http://www.dasoft.com/filelist.htm (File Lists)

I don't own a 1000CX / 200LX, but some day might

PIM/LX Version 2.0. is available on /filelist.htm on above site.

Hi!
The HPLX mailing list is also a good source for information!

Update: Finally found an extracted dump of the HP 200LX's rom on another forum. If anyone is interested, here is the link: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?t=55460 (Second post)

I'm trying to convert my HP 1000CX to the HP 200LX with the exception of the function keys being mapped to the HP 200LX's programs.

Ok, I've taken a break from the HP. Mainly due to the fact that I'm tired of moving files from my main PC via USB, then into my old WinXP machine, then finally over to a MMC card that goes into a PCMCIA adapter that goes into the HP 1000CX. That, and I'm still not remembering all the DOS commands so moving / copying / deleting is a pain. Especially when it comes to directories. I need to find a decent file manager, but the one I thought was good just won't start up.

I do intend on getting this set up eventually to be used for PIM and simple DOS games and some other things. In the mean time, could someone link me a decent, lightweight file manager (with GUI) for DOS?

I always used Norton Commander. It reminds me a lot of Total Commander for CE.

Volkov Commander was another that I used back in my DOS days… it was smaller and faster for me. I just don't remember which versions of DOS either of these supported…but I remember enjoying the .zip extractor being built into the app.
