Connecting ZQ-3200 Sharp with Linux?


Hi,

I am still time to time using a old good Sharp, but I
would like to backup my data using the/a serial com
cable.

I have an USB to com1, but but... I cannot find
my cable.

Would know how to make a new one and connect Linux on it?

Kind regards

The only real information I found was this site.

Without the cable you might be out of luck.

oh ,... I have the floppies of a soft that runs on DOS.
I didnt know that win soft existed.

I had a soft on dos and the cable, I must check where it might be

I thought that own designing this serial cable might be possible

I remember that for the floppy and serial cable, I had to pay about 100-130 euros. (btw, how much is it in Belgium Euros?)

If you could find a 4 pin connector it might be possible to build your own. It should be fairly easy I would think to determine the pins on the 4 port connector however it appears that searching for the CE-136T also lists the cable as a level converter so the output from the unit is probably TTL.

It would be easy... but...
I could find a 4 pin connector, but I would need to know the correspondence of the electrical cable from COM to the Sharp-4-pin connector.

In the manual, they do not tell how to make correspond the cables.
Anyone still having the possibility to open and check the electrical cables on any of those? ex. CE-300L http://www.pcmuseum.ca/details.asp?i...ype=Peripheral

Is it USB type, parallel, USB to parallel or vice versa?

I might be able to help, but you have to be specific, I have a lot of cables that is why I ask.

Hi,

I would be so much happy of it. I can weld, and buy the 4-pins, com1,... into an electronic store.

Here is what I would need:

http://www.441auctions.com/detail.as...ftwarehardware

it is a COM1 <-> 4-pin sharp cable. what would be the sketch for me to weld this cable?


I still have the OL-390 floppy disk.

I will see if I have one in one of my cases, if I have one I will need your contact details (do not give it to me just yet). Looking at the organizer I just might have what you need, but I will have to look for it, it will take me sometime if that is OK with you.

Hi, I dont understand much regarding contact details. For instance, taking an electric controller, one can pound the 4pins to the COM1 or COM 25 pins. Well, I believe that it must not be so complicating connecting (cable correspondence), but who really knows. I have somewhere also the cable but I cannot find it I search this month or in september again but I do not believe I can find it, still a surprise.

I am looking forward to hearing you. OK. Thank you !
