Re: RTC Calibration program

Had a heck of a time creating the file in Win 10 with Notepad. Kept insisting on using a .txt extension instead of .cfg. Went back to an old MSDOS computer to create the file, then copied via floppy disk to my Win XT computer and then connected the DM42 to a USB port so I could copy it to the FAT d...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

The screen shot used to explain this Layout2 in the post you commented on is actually a WP43S "body" that has the yellow and blue indicators on both sides of the 2nd and 3rd line of displayed labels, but this is misleading. Layout 2 is intended to be used on existing DM42 hardware where the body ha...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

All the blue labels as per the layout2 (below) are available, but clearly there is no blue labels on the DM42. Use the HOME menu, press [Dn], which will go to three extra screens listing all the blue labels on the WP34C. In a following post I will show the screens which allow the DM42 to run the WP...

Re: Problem getting USB disk to access?

If you're using Windows, did you install the driver for the calculator?

and https://www.swissmicros.com/dm42/tools/ ... driver.zip

Re: 43S Alternative key layout

If we're to share the function of the f and g keys, please don't forget the color cues that are so important. I'd go for a key like this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2x1xushgwvcmf7v/FG%20Key.png?dl=1 That would require colouring and printing on the key - but the space above it is free. Would labels f...

So it sounds like better wait for version 3.15.
