Today it disconnected again and I lost all my OFFIMG screens. When I looked for them on my pc, they had been erased there as well. Please tell me again where I can find all the FAT disk contents for the DM41X. Thanks.
When it disconnected here also I lost this folder...
Thanks, Salvo. This occurred after I further modified my cable to be 100% certain it was fully inserted. My pc suddenly disconnected it, and then issued a message that it had done so because it did not recognize my device. When I copied the OFFIMG files back to the FAT disk, it said that one file was already there, so I skipped copying it. This was the SwissMicros.bmp file, that reappeared, so I guess the directory on the FAT disk had gotten corrupted. It doesn't seem like this is simply a case of a bad connection, and in three years of ownership, I've never this problem with my DM42.
BTW, it looks like there have been some minor changes to the 41X.htm HELP file (newer date stamp, larger size).
Oh, and one more thing I noticed that after the hard RESET to recover control of the calculator after it got disconnected, my clock had returned to the default 24 hour mode from the 12 hour (AM/PM) mode that I use. I don't recall my DM42 doing this, although it's been a long time since I have needed to hard RESET my DM42.
