Thanks Matt  Raymond. Getting closer to solving (maybe) the problem. Placed 
the Toshiba driver into Win95 /System and rebooted. No luck. Looked at the 
W2K OS and see it lists the PCMCIA cardbus controller as a Texas Inst 
PCI-1420. I placed the W2K driver into Win95 but it seems it won't work in 
95. I'm now assuming that this is the problem since pluging in or removing 
the card has no affect when I'm using Win95, it doesn't recognize the slot 
being used with the drivers available. Unless I can get it to recognize the 
Texas cardbus I may be out of luck in Win95. Any other suggestions or 
observations?

The Toshiba US website used to have drivers for it (and probably still do) 
... look under Libretto 50CT in the support area for the 95 drivers for the 
floppy drive, you may need to look under 100CT for Win2k ones. I *believe* 
the drive should work in your Dell with those drivers but it probably won't 
boot off it (as I understand the Libretto FDD put the PC card slot into a 
weird mode to get it to boot).

Can the PC card from my 50CT be used on a Dell Latitude C610? How would I 
address the drivers issue (which drivers to use)? It would be nice to have 
the CD in use and the floppy PC card rather than swapping out the CD for 
the floppy which is the way the PC was designed. I'm using Win 95B and Win

Shouldn't be a problem.
It's a standard YE-Data PCMCIA floppy drive.



And drivers shouldn't be needed... right folks?  Floppy and hard
drives are usually controlled by BIOS.  I'd just plug it in and see
if it works.



Matt


It does work as expected on Win2K, just plug and play. But so far the plug 
'n play is a no go for Win 95 hence the question about drivers. It simply 
doesn't recognize that the floppy PC card is being placed in the slot, no 
beeps, no new hardware Windows popup, nada. Never used a PC card for 
anything but the 50CT so I have little knowledge of them.


As soon as I plug the PC card floppy into the 50CT running Win95 it 
recognizes the card. I can place drivers on the C610, just asking which ones 
I can experiment with to get the Dell to recognize the Toshiba PC card 
floppy. Any ideas on how to get it to work? - Louis

Hi Greg, Matt

I paid $53 plus tax/shipping for 16 RAM from Coast Memory in 2001. I checked 
out their Web site  the price is still $53.


http://www.coastmemory.com/result.asp?modelID=4641 should bring you to the 
16MB memory chip for the Libretto 50CT. If you have any questions concerning 
the RAM  your 50CT give them a call @ 1-800-4memory.


No need to buy memory from those Ebay sellers who buy in bulk and resell at 
huge profit$. The new memory chip is still working perfectly on the 50CT I 
own. No problems w/the sale or delivery from Coast Memory. But do check 
around for better prices and post the pertinent info if you find a lower 
price.

Hi Matthew

But are you  saying that you are getting spam with [LIB] in the subject?

No, not at all, I said that when I use the word [LIB] as a filter for my 
Subject lne - ALL spam ceases to get into my mailbox, it's deleted at 
Hotmail's server. I also have one other filter that only members of a hobby 
club I correspond with use, that makes it impossible to receive any spam in 
my mailbox. Spammers are not going to selectively word the Subject line of 
each spam they send out even if they knew the words you filter on. If 
everyone would simply remember that all spammers are thieves and liars w/o 
exception, no one would ever reply to their email to begin with and they'd 
all have to get real jobs instead of stealing from the public. But we do 
have a few individuals in our society that aren't too bright and actually 
reply to spammers and even send them money - which they lose - all spammer 
are thieves, the rest of us filter our email.

If you use Norton Internet Security or AtGuard, one way to block these 
things
is to setup the adblocker to block anything with the string 
www.atlantistech.com
that blocks the script that makes your brwoser send an e-mail.

Very, very interesting Lou!  I suspected this sort of thing was going on.
But you're saying it's when you have Java activated, right?

Matt

Java has been called the culprit of a lot of browser problems for yrs. I use 
IE 5, Netscape 3 and 4.7 and Opera 4 on my PC at the same time. Each one 
acts differently and they all crash on occasion when Java is enabled. Opera 
seems to handle it the best and it loads Web pages super fast compared to IE 
which is pathetically slw. I usually disable Java in Netscape 
which has my real ISP email address in it, run Java on IE and have found 
Opera runs a bit funky w/Java. Sometimes Web site acknowledge it, other 
times they balk and say it's not operational even though I have it enabled. 
But I NEVER get popups with Opera! My IE has only a fake address placed in 
it since I never email with it, so IF Java were the culprit here (I'm told 
that it is on occasion), the browser wouldn't send my real email address out 
anyway. Search the Net, there are lots of posts and info concerning security 
flaws in IE with Java enabled. That's why Micro$oft keeps offering patches 
for their browser.

One catch with some email was that the sender would place a code in his 
email to tell your browser to go to his Web site and download a Gif. Once it 
did it also confirmed that the code, unique to you, was used and he now 
knows the email address he sent that code to is active. when I get email 
from a Yahoo group I subscribe to, I only read it off line which eliminates 
all the ads their email tells your browser to fetch once you open the email 
if you're online.

Again, if the Lib group's moderator/owner were to eliminate all of our 
email addresses from showing up in our posts (like mine did in your reply to 
me Matt), spam would drop off and even be nonexistant for new email accounts 
since no one would ever have access to those email addresses. An ounce of 
prevention...or we need to keep useing throw away accounts like Hotmail for 
posting to the Net. - Lou S

FYI, I was just browsing the Net on an unrelated search and stumbled unto 
the below links. Using Java can give away your email address as can reading 
spam that comes in, in some cases. One way to cut down on spam would be to 
have the Server for the Libretto List to strip our email addresses out of 
our posts. The only way I get spam these days is from posting here. But

nada, none, not even one! spam. - Lou S

I don't quite understand how MY email address gets from my Lib's W98
installation to the website I'm filling in a form for.  I've only entered 
my email
address into Eudora.  But I'm wondering if Windows, or MSIE which is part
of the OS, is able to grab my email address from Eudora.

I know that a few years back, I used to post forms from my own website.
The forms used the HTML mailto tags to send the forms to my ISP email
address.  The forms I submitted to myself came through with my email

I can only guess that Windows and/or MSIE and maybe Netscape, manage
to find email addresses configured into mail clients, and uses them in 
response
to the mailto HTML tags on websites.

Well I dunno about USB, serial or PCMCIA connections but I've had

Thanks 4 the reply Ray. I just got a two page email from Nokia concerning 
all their CP's that are capable of connecting a PC to the Net whether via 
Infrared or Nokia Data Cable. Looks like I'll have some variety when it 
comes to choosing a new CP to connect to the Net with a Libretto. But I 
still will need to contact Verizon about the availability of service, some 
problems can be encountered whether the CP is in Analog or Digital mode.

One question would be, which type of connection would be best, Infrared, 
PCMCIA, Serial, other? Data will be slow to begin with on an Analog network 
so I'd want to avoid that but Digital isn't that much faster as I recall. I 
did have to remove the Generic IRDA device on the L50 due to a conflict with 
the PCMCIA floppy drive which was using the same I/O address as I recall, 
never found a way around that. I just hope that if I enable it again, it'll 
set itself up to work properly.

I can only guess that Windows and/or MSIE and maybe Netscape, manage to

I'm still wondering if anyone involved in HTML and writing server scripts 
might know what's going on with this.

Matt

As I recall reading in the past, someone who knows what he is doing could 
enable a Java applet or script to delve into your mail client and come up 
w/the address, unknown if this is really true. I just happen to not run Java 
on my one browser (Netscape) that allows me email access. I do use it with 
the browsers (Opera, Internet Explorer) that have no email info imbedded in 
them but usually turn it on only when needed. Not using it eliminates pop 
up messages/advertisements.

Also, make sure you do not check the box for Send email address as 
anonymous FTP password if your browser (Netscape) allows for such. Not a 
good thing to do.

Just reading a spam can tell the spammer all he needs to know. I read none 
of the garbage that comes in. I block everything by domain name if possible 
but never actually read the spam itself. If the spammer includes a command 
in the email that tells your browser to go to their Web site to download a 
jpeg file that wasn't in the email they sent you, they can place a code in 
that jpeg request so they know it came from a specific email address which 
will tell them that your email address is active = lots more spam because 
they can now sell your address as active to other lusers of society 
(spammers).

The nice people on news.admin.net-abuse.email can better explain spamming to 
you, they make an art out of killing spammers accounts, and they're pretty 
good at it too. Spammers hate news.admin.net-abuse.email

If your email account is strictly for the libretto server, then filter mail 
based on the [LIB] which appears in the subject line of mail from the 
server. Tell it to only accept mail with [LIB] in the subject line, 
nothing else will get through.

Subject: Re: not seeing floppy

Lib 50 CT, Win 95, not seeing floppy, sort of. If the floppy is connected 
on boot up, machiine sees that there is an invalid boot disk in it. But, 
the drive lite never comes on, and I cant log onto the disk. - Mike

Problem solved on my end. While I had the same problems as Mike and kept 
makig changes to the Interrupt  I/O and Original Configurations settings 
for the floppy I kept noticing that the Interrupt request would say there 
was a conflict and it was being used by the generic IRDA device, which I 
don't use. I checked the Use automatic settings box under the Resources 
tab which allowed the floppy to change to a different interrupt request with 
no conflicts but it still wouldn't be able to read the floppy.

I finally disabled the IRDA device in the Control Panel under its Original 
Configuration box (removed the check mark) and rebooted, the IRDA is now 
listed as disabled and the floppy - drum roll! - now works fine. Problem is, 
what do I do if I ever need the IRDA? And how the hell did this all change 
by itself, after my system crashed one day? Anyone else ever run into the 
same problem with the IRDA device settings?

BTW, thanks to those who emailed me and tried to help, it's appreciated! -

Get l70utils.exe - within it is hidden the floppy driver tsbfdc.inf. (Or 
if you have l50utils.exe, try that).

 From where may I get this?  Thanks, Mike

Mike, while my 50CT floppy worked for me previously, a short while back it 
stopped being recognized by my 50CT. It works fine when I boot to my DOS 
partition but not under the Windoze partition so it's not the floppy itself, 
it's a software or resources issue.

BTW, when I try to use tsbfdc.inf Windoze states that it contains no 
information about my floppy and refuses to use it. So I'm back to square 
one, the floppy won't work. I did enable it to spin at least (previously 
it wouldn't work at all) by changing the Control Panel System settings for 
the floppy to Use Automatic Settings under the Resources tab but it simply 
refuses to read off it, anyone else have an idea as to what is going on? Do 
I need to make other changes under Resources?  - Louis

Problem loading PCMCIA floppy

2001-06-18 Thread Lou S

Subject: Problem loading PCMCIA floppy

Turned on the 50CT yesterday and it crashed and burned. Don't know what 
upset it but as of now everything is working OK except the floppy, Windoze 
won't recognize it anymore (works fine in DOS though). I've tried to 
reinstall but Windoze insists that it's a Toshiba floppy, which of course is 
not working, it has to be something else.

I recall seeing Adaptec listed previously but haven't found it in the list 
of hardware that Windoze provides. Can someone look at their Control 
Panel/System setup and tell me what is listed for the floppy. Perhaps I can 
then ID the .INF file that has the info and convince Windoze to allow me to 
use it to install the floppy again, thanks.

Re: 128MB for Libretto 110, is there a way?

Subject: Re: 128MB for Libretto 110, is there a way?

Hi Paul, thanks for the posts, they certainly caused a lot of folks to pay 
attention to the memory upgrade possibilities of the Libretto.

I was unable to download your jpeg's at first and responded to what I 
thought you may have done, that is, you used the current memory boards 
within the Libretto. But you're really "adding" memory chips to the board, 
that is possible I suppose but 99.99% of the people here would not be able 
to do it, especially if it requires unsolding surface mount chips and 
cutting a new circuit board. There is also very little room inside the 
Libretto versus the IBM PC to add more chips, where would a new board fit 
in?

Also, it still is; in my mind anyway; a matter of the addresses on the 
memory chip, can the CPU use the new, extra addresses properly? I am only 
familiar with upgrading the memory capacity on a radio. I added switches to 
allow me to addresses certain addresses on a radio memory chip one at a 
time.

An example would be a TV, let's say each channel is 16MB of memory. To use a 
different 16MB of memory I need to change channels, but since I only watch 
one channel at a time that's not a problem using a manual switch to address 
memory.

On my radio I only listen to one station (memory) at a time so it's not a 
problem adding 16 times the memory capacity for storage. But I am not all 
that familiar with a PC's CPU and how it uses RAM memory chips. If your IBM 
shows more RAM, is it actually there or is the CPU fooled into thinking it's 
there?

Once you can explain how the CPU can access the extra addresses on the new 
memory chip I'll be able to understand how you did the mod. PC are not my 
area of expertise, I'll do a hack here and there but your idea is new to me. 
Explain in more detail, take your time, no need to rush, I'm not about to 
run out and buy more chips today :)

Best wishes,
Louis

Subject: Re: 128MB for Libretto 110, is there a way?

Concerning the space of Libretto's addition memory chip. I think,
you can solid over the existing ram chip (on top of the orginal ram
just like the IBM PC110,

Piggyback the new RAM chip into place? Most likely not possible on the 50Ct, 
too tight in there and the memory chips are already stacked, wiring new ones 
in will be a nightmare. And while I'm at it, I KEEP forgetting to mention 
that back in '96 I paid $179 for 16 MB additional RAM, last month I paid $69 
for 128 MB of RAM. The prices in '96 made it very unlikely that Toshiba (or 
anyone else) would give you a 32 MB RAM chip and only use 16 MB of it on the 
50CT. The only way to get more RAM was to add it to the slot provided for 
upgrading and unless someone can find a board that will fit into "that" slot 
with more than 16 MB of RAM on it, all the stock 50CT should be capable of 
is 32 MB RAM, sorry.

As for what Paul is offering, it could work provided we can cram another 
board inside a 50CT, it's tight in there! Mounting the chips flat on the 
back of the existing ones will require a lot of soldering of wires Paul, 
even I'll pass on this one. I've unsoldered and resoldered mega-pin surface 
mount chips before, no_fun_at_all :(

The reason why I wish to find the solution for memory upgrade is
currently I use Win2K with my Libretto. Win2K is a memory eater

Can it be configured to be less of a memory eater? Either that or you need a 
100CT or 110CT for more RAM. If you have any files or pictures you want 
placed on a WEB site, if you do not have access to one, let me know I can 
loan you space. Keep in mind that many sites like Yahoo offer "free" Web 
pages too. It'll make it easier for fellow Libretto owners on this board to 
get at the info at their leasure and not tie up this particular board with 
large files.

I'm planning to over clock it,

It can be done but I question the gains in typical day-2-day applications.
Mine is running at 99.97MHz according to Norton's Utility but I see no
performance gains myself, your results may vary. Mine did shut down once
while using the enhanced replicator and the parallel port to copy files
(very slwly) from another PC, doing that creates heat.

put a big hard drive in it,

See http://www.amherst.co.uk/libhdup.htm and
http://www.silverace.com/libretto/ for hard drive upgrade info

more ram and windows 98.

16 MB more RAM can be had for about $53 at
http://www.coastmemory.com/result.asp?modelID=4641 I've bought from them and
had no problems. Win 98? If you so desire try 98 Lite though, less memory
and space hogging. I've gone back to Win 95 on all my machines. You could
partition your HD like my 50Ct is, DOS 6.22  Win 3.1 on one partition, Win
95A on the other. I have Win 98 on one of the desktop's partitions for
experimenting in that environment.

Concerning the touch pad mouse. If you want a PS/2 mouse since you don't
have USB on the 50CT try this one
http://atekelec.com/Accessories/accessories.html it looks small enough and
according to a news release the PS/2 is coming eventually.

From: "Lou S" [EMAIL PROTECTED]
Subject: Re: 128MB for Libretto 110, is there a way?

Eventually this solution is for IBM PC110 to increase
the memory. The Ram chip was the same used in Libretto
50/70, so I think it will be possible to apply to the Libretto. Because the 
data bus of the memory is the same.

Are all the adresses, A0-A11, on the all memory chips used? If it was 
engineered for more than 16 RAM and they simply tied one or more addresses 
low while the others are high you might be able to get more memory by making 
all addresses high but I assume the CPU does the multiplexing of all the 
memory addresses as per the spec sheet.

I've looked at the chip last year but never followed through on the specs 
and pinouts, if you want to look at the memory chip it can be found at: 
http://bwrc.eecs.berkeley.edu/Research/Intercom_Group/details/hardware/strongarmdocs.html
 
just download the TC51V16165CFTS-60 Toshiba EDO DRAM Data Sheet (pdf, 1.68 
MB)

Do we have pinouts on the CPU chip? Someone out there must have a schematic 
or service manual.
