Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum. Long story short, I bought a toshiba 755 a few years ago, and ended up, because I work at home, never needing to use it. Well now I've a family member who needs lots of hospital and doctor care, and I've pulled it out of the drawer to use again. It runs the Windows Pocket PC version 3.0 and that doesn't seem to be to tough, but when I go to system, it tells me that the expansion slot is unused, and I have a 64 meg SD card inserted in the slot for the SD space.
Also, I've been searching all day, and downloaded only 3 programs - one is Pocket RX, the others are Healthmaster and Health File. None seem to be really good - and all seem to be just slanted databases- none seem to be interactive with appointments, insurance and the like. Does anyone know of a GREAT program for a person who will have to deal extensively with doctors and tests, and insurance and hospitals?
thanks for any help,
old dog
Maisey!

From what I can tell the Toshiba 755 is a PPC, at least the E755 is anyway.... What is the specific medical care software you need. There is a lot of software out there for you. Try here for a start. Although I am not totally familiar with PPC software, and I don't know if a lot of people here will know.

Again this is a Handheld PC forum and we can only give info we know about. Hope it helps

Thanks, I'll give a try, I was hoping to find something that was geared to the user being the sick person, instead of the user being the doctor, which I found a lot of pocket pc software for.
always hopefull
