(the web site structure changes too frequently to link directly to individual pages - select Support for technical support, or select Casio World to find the rep nearest to you)

Casio actively removes information on any products that they are not currently shipping, so don't expect to find much support for Digital Diaries on their web site. You might find more on some of the International sites like Casio UK.

Please contact IMSL Software if your problem is related to XLink/Win or CASIF/Win. But please DON'T contact IMSL software if your problem is that you want Casio to send you a replacement manual/software/diary/whatever. We will answer questions related to Casio's products if possible, but we can't ship you any replacement Casio products.

For suggestions on where to send your diary for repair, check Casio's Support web page at www.casio.com, or contact Casio Tech Support by telephone - they can provide the most up-to-date list of authorized repair centers.

You can also get a replacement for a broken screen from Global Products or EAI (below)

Manuals

Casio Japan has published some of their SF Digital Diary manuals online at http://world.casio.com/sf/download/en/manual/ .

You can also try the Casio support web sites for other countries, as they sometimes keep manuals around that Casio Japan has deleted. You may have to look around the site a little, as sometimes the technical support pages are not linked to the public pages. For example see: http://www.casionz.co.nz/Site/Pronto/Files/user_manuals/sf4000%20USER%20MANUAl.pdf (substituting some other model numbers like SF4600B also works with this site).

http://www.usersmanualguide.com/casio/pocket_viewers has manuals posted for many old and new Casio Digital Diary models (thanks to Matt W. Ammons for the link), but one of the sites they link to at Casio has gone offline, so some of the links don't work.

IMSL Software has created downloadable generic user manual for all Casio diary models. This brief manual attempts to cover all models and major features in one document, so it doesn't go into a lot of step-by-step detail, but it does cover all the basics for all common models. The manual is a Word document in Zip-compressed format, so you must have an unzip utility like WinZip installed to open it.

To order a new original manual from Casio in the USA or Canada for any Digital Diary model, try the contact numbers listed immediately above under Casio Contacts.

International

Other countries: policies on availability of manuals in different languages vary, so you must contact your local Casio distributor for information. If you go to www.casio.com and click on Casio World, you can find the name of a Casio distributor in your area.

Newsgroups

In general the Casio Digital Diaries are not covered extensively by any particular Usenet news group, but the following is probably the best: comp.sys.palmtops

A better strategy is to search the Google News Usenet archives using the search term "Casio diary" or your particular Casio model number. This will find all messages in all newsgroupgs related to your topic, and allow you to follow up or send an email reply.

Compuserve/AOL

Compuserve at one time had a Casio section in the PALMTOP B forum on Compuserve which was a good source of information and software for the Casio BOSS palmtops, but Casio dropped their support for it in favor of Internet support. Compuserve still have a library section with some Casio-related files (GO PALMB). AOL also have a few library files, but no organized support.

Other Companies supplying Casio diary software

Casio currently supplies the FA-128 cable and software package for backing up Casio digital diary data. Their older versions FA-100, FA-120, FA-126, FA-127 may still be available in some countries, but the old versions do not support the latest diary models.

Companion Link Inc. - Windows Link, formerly Polaris Windows Link, also FA-126

Travelling Software Tech Support - PCLink for DOS, also FA-120; tech support only, Travelling Software have changed their name to LapLink Inc, and the old PCLink product is no longer sold or updated

Lucid Corp - company that sold Lucid 3D spreadsheet software, once had a downloadable demo version available, now seem to be just a redirection site (beware! they'll try to hijack your browser search page)

Yellow Computing - DataLink DOS, SF-Interface Windows

IntelliLink Tech Support - now Puma Technology (owned by Palm), support for old Casio versions


Software for other platforms

DOS software: There is an old version of CASIF for DOS which supports older SF models only. Request if from IMSL Software if you need it. There are a few other old DOS packages around as well, but generally in the same category as the CASIF software.

Mac software: CasioTalk is a Macintosh application that allows for transfer of data between any Macintosh computer and a Casio BOSS digital diary, but it hasn't been recently updated and does not support the latest models. See CasioTalk 2.0.5 (location last updated Apr 2004). Contains documentation and specifications for building a hardware interface. System 7 aware. Was shareware, now freeware. Windows Link (now CompanionLink) also developed a product for linking a Casio diary to a Mac, but they don't mention it on their web site, so it may never have gotten out of beta test. Or you can run XLink/Win on a Mac under a Windows emulator such as Softwin or VirtualPC.

Unix software: Linux, SunOS & Solaris software: casio-2.0.1.tgz (location verified Apr 2004 - you might have to do an Internet search for it, but it is updated regularly). Or you can run XLink/Win on Unix under the Wine Windows emulator.

Amiga software: This program is for communicating between the Casio digital Diary SF-4300, SF-4600 and the Amiga: Casio.com - Amiga program by Steven Ross (location verified Apr 2004)

Casio Calculators

Casio programmable calculators use the same cable as the Casio electronic diaries, but a different communications protocol. There are many sources of information and programs for Casio calculators on the web, but they change frequently. You can try the following links, but if they are out of date, try a search for "Casio Calculator" on any Internet search engine.

Casio Corner - cable diagrams and other information related to Casio calculators

http://www.worldlib.org/Business/Personal-Finance/casio-calculator-software.php - commercial software


Casio QV Cameras

Casio QV digital cameras also use the same cable as the Casio electronic diaries, but a different communications protocol. The protocol itself is available from unofficial sources on the web, but the proprietary CAM/YCC format used by all the QV cameras is an obscure variant of JPEG and is not well documented. Fortunately there are various shareware programs available which support this format. Try QV-Autocam.

IMSL Software's shareware photo album program Zeus can be used with photos from any source, but it does not support the Casio QV camera communications protocol.
