Transfer a File

Transfer a File

Let's try an example of transferring a Macintosh MS Word 4.0 file to your 95LX (assuming that you already have a Word 4.0 document on your Mac hard drive):

  1. 1. Go to SET TRANSLATORS on your Mac screen and select MACINTOSH FORMATS from the pop-up menu on the left side of the screen.
  2. 2. Scroll down the menu and highlight WORD 4.0. The upper-left corner will show that you've selected WORD 4.0. The REMOTE IBM PC scroll menu on the right will show you the PC formats that WORD 4.0 can be translated to.
  3. 3. Since the HP 95LX stores MEMO files as .TXT, highlight TEXT under the REMOTE IBM PC FORMATS scrolling menu. When you do, the SELECT FILES radio button at the top of the screen will become activated.
  4. 4. Click the radio button that selects the DIRECTION of the file transfer. In this example, you select MAC to IBM PC.
  5. 5. Now, click the SELECT FILES radio button. You'll be taken to another screen similar to the one you just exited. Looks familiar? You'll recognize it as the Apple directory dialog box. The left box is your Mac and the right box is your 95LX.
  6. 6. Click on CONNECT in the lower-right corner of your screen. If all goes well, the IBM PC dialog box will show your 95LX's C:\ directory And your 95LX will read `Connected to Macintosh.'
  7. 7. Scroll through your Mac dialog box on the left and select the WORD 4.0 file that you want to transfer to your 95LX. If you want the file to be transferred to your 95LX's _DAT file, double-click on the _DAT file in the IBM PC dialog box (just like you would on a Mac!). Click on CONVERT & TRANSFER on your Mac screen. You'll be prompted to name your file for the 95LX. (Note that the .TXT extension has automatically been added to the default file name. If your Mac file's name was longer than 8 letters, it will automatically be pared down to the first 8 letters of the file name along with the . extension.) Click OKHP150 and the translation and transfer will commence.
  8. 8. After the transfer has been completed, click the DISCONNECT button on your Mac screen. Enter <CTRL>--< Backspace > on your 95LX. Go to MEMO in your 95LX and retrieve your new .TXT file to verify that the transfer was successful.
THAT'S IT! Later, when you're confident with transferring word processing files to your 95LX, experiment with EXCEL (Mac) to Lotus 1-2-3 (IBM) transfers, or PICT (Mac) to PC PAINTBRUSH (PCX). Clicking the left DIRECTION button translates or transfers 95LX files to the Mac.
