FAQ
===

1. What you see on screen when you connect something?

For HDD, Memory Flash or CardReader, you can see in Explorer(Resco Explorer or WM Explorer) the new unit labeled as "Hard Disk".
For keyboard, you don't see , but in any program using the device own keyboard (Touch Screen or slide - HTC Touch Pro), you can just type on external USB keyboard.
For mouse you see a yellow-green mouse cursor on screen which follows the external mouse movements.
For DVD you see : "External Mass Storage"
For Serial port a little window prompts you to configure the serial port settings and communication protocol.
Or start "Zeno Terminal" in "Start-Programs-Zeno USB Host Drivers" for configuration, or start "Zeno 232 USB Serial" in "Start-Programs-Zeno USB Host Drivers", for configuration.
For digital camera start the program "Zeno PTP View".

2. Is program limited to only devices with USB-host?

Yes and no. It depends on the hardware construction, accesible USB connector, even older devices without usb-host can have usb-host functionality. Many models and manufacturers has hidden this feature which really exists in their devices. The only way to find is to test it and if not working, search if other users succeeded. Original Fujitsu Siemens Pocket Loox 560N has included by default usb-host connector, with support for HDD-Memory Flash only.

3. Cables and power supply - which ones?

I always tested it with powersupply incoupled for my Loox, even if HDD or DVD-unit self was powered separated. More info on how to build an injected USB power supply here:
http://tabletblog.com/2006/01/usb-power ... -mode.html
or here:
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Mi ... tnG=Search
You can use the cables/accessories from an external powered usb 2.5" hdd unit and adapter mini-usb to usb (usb cables with 2 heads at one end for external power supply).

4. Does it work on my device?

There's nothing harmful, nothing malicious hidden in my program, so you can test it on your devices without risk for dataloss or other unpleasant effects.
The installation (CAB) is not locked to certain device, it is uninstallable, it is not compressed to avoid install problems on certain devices. On my FSC Loox 560N I could install/uninstall without problems. Test my program, if it works, I'll be glad I could help other users, without thinking of money or profit. If it does not work, I can not guarantee I can help you. Just try and see.

5. Can it read data from attached DVD-unit or NTFS partitions?

Yes. The DVD unit I used is an Acer USB-based CD&DVD-RW made 2004 for an Acer Tablet-PC.

6. Barcode readers?

A user commented that even an USB barcode reader worked ok.

7. Incompatibility problems with other programs?

I can only test on my FSC Loox 560N. You can try on other devices and report in this thread on your experiences.

8. Legal aspects. Is this program legal?

Yes. All informations and sources are based on free available information and sources. No licences or copyrights were infringed. All is legal to use.

9. How much does it cost?

This program made by me, Zeno Sloim, is completeley free to use and test. I do not demand any payment or any other material form of recompense.
My program is done as Freeware and may be used by anyone.
However it may be not used or included by any person or company in a shareware product or which demands paying.

Does that work also with any PDA or PPC? Especially with an HTC Touch Pro? Or is that limited to little number of devices which are already equiped with an USB HOST?

By the way...THANX :D

The limitation is given by the hardware construction: accesible USB connector, even older pda's without usb-host can have usb-host functionality.
FSC Loox has included by default usb-host connector, with support for HDD-Memory Flash only.

You run on your pc the file installer.exe while your pda is connected via activesync. Or you run the PPC autorun.exe directly on your pda.
If it works on your pda, simply try, in theory it should work. :)

Simply try, if not working, just uninstall. The program is fully uninstalable, without any problems.

Hi peeps. I have been non-registered member :D of this forum for a long time, but this app made me register. It looks and sounds great. I have 3 question before trying it though.

1 - Let me see if i got it right. This app gives host capabilities to devices that don't have it? Has anyone tested in on the Xperia.

2 - Is it fully uninstallable on any winmo devices? I have read that about many programs, but in the end i had to do a hard reset.

3 - Will there be mouse support?

Thank you for the great work.

1. Teoretically yes, depends on device.
2. I guess yes, the installation and the cab is not locked to certain device, it is uninstallable, it is not compressed to avoid installproblems on certain devices. On my FSC Loox 560 I could install7uninstall without problems.
3. No mouse support, yet. Only keyboard US-101.
